Publisher's Summary

Damen is a warrior hero to his people and the rightful heir to the throne of Akielos, but when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity, and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave.
Beautiful, manipulative and deadly, his new master, Prince Laurent, epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent to survive and save his country.
For Damen, there is just one rule: never, ever reveal his true identity. Because the one man Damen needs is the one man who has more reason to hate him than anyone else.

Great story but better in print

What would have made Captive Prince better?

Whilst I can appreciate Stephen Bel Davies as a narrator, he just didn't work here for me as his voice is not one I associate with a fantasy such as this - his voice is too 'classy' for want of a better word and in my opinion this needed a grittier, rougher approach.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Captive Prince?

The story is one of my absolute favourites so I enjoyed the book, but probably because I had already read it in print and was drawing on my own mental world building from having read it before.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Stephen Bel Davies?

Hmmm.. I have my favourites, but probably Joel Leslie or Greg Tremblay, who I honestly believe can narrate anything and I'd love it. From previous audios (Necromancers Tale/Guarded etc) I think their tone and range of accents would have suited this better. Like I said, Stephen Bel Davies has a pleasant voice to listen to, but I'd pitch him more for a slick spy thriller than this type of story. I'd check out other SBD narrations - this was a case of poorly matched narrator-to-story for me rather than bad narration.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really for me - I was disappointed that the audio didn't live up to my own expectations of how I imagined the CP world to be since this didn't come across for me and I need to be immersed in a story to appreciate it in audio-form.

Dodgy audio

The story is amazing so far and the reading is good. However at some points during the audiobook it sounds as if a different person is saying an individual word or as if the reader has taken a step away from the microphone for a single second.
Not a huge issue but distracting enough that I wanted to mention it.
But on the whole very impressed.
