  • Amanda Prado
    I WAS SO SKEPTICAL BUT PACAT RLY CAME THRU!!!! MY MOMTHER I'LL NEVER DOUBT YOU AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!I've always held the opinion that The Ancel Scene was the one huge, undefensible fuck up of book 1 (just look at my review, I didn't give Captive Prince 5 stars because of that), so when Pacat announced the last short story was going to be about Ancel, I was confused, but thought "maybe she's trying to fix her fuck up?" and this was pretty much it, y'a...

    OMG, Ancel is such a trip. And Berenger? *swoon* Pacat is truly gifted (why isn't she writing more books?!) and for such a short story, it had a proper arc.
  • Shin Mon Thway
    It was funny to think because I wasn’t even that excited for this short story when it came out. And that’s why it took me that long to dig into this. C.S. Pacat really has a knack for enthralling her readers with her vivid imaginations and impeccably clever plots. 😌 I will admit that I was not a big fan of Ancel when I was reading the captive prince trilogy. By all means, the guy truly is manipulative, ambitious and bitchy. 😏 After I r...
  • Hamad
    oh Shit, I take back what I said about her short stories, this was so good!
  • sofia
    as a person who has never given ancel a second thought, this was so much more interesting than i thought it would be

    BUT IF HE WINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!i cant handle this my brain refuses to believe it has come to an end but it was ! so good this is such a good way to end this series bc it brings us back to the beginning in a way and aaaaaaaaaaathis has been such a long and beautiful journey ive met so many people through capri and made so many very good friends and this entire series has given me more hope and strenghth than i would have ever expected im just so em...

    ‘I think,’ said Berenger, ‘that the only person in this place who shows me their real face is you.’Who cares about Ancel's story? Ancel always has been a manipulative little shit. Not a favourite character. Apparently and surprisingly I found his story fascinating. Berenger was such an honourable man who made me wish that things between him and Ancel were different from the beginning. Maybe then Ancel would have a chance to be a better ma...
  • Maryanne
    Color me surprised! I didn't think I'd enjoy this short story as much as I did.I've always considered Ancel as a trivial character, but reading about how his mind works and his relationship (kinda) with Berenger, well I've definitely changed my is it possible to hate the Regent even more? Because I do.
  • Kiki
    This was fabulous, nuanced, and slightly sad, which is to say that C.S. Pacat remains my queen and this series still aggressively ATTACKS my emotions with what I can only assume is witchcraft (jk, it's just excellent writing).My problems with this are the typos because damn, son! Whole words are missing! There's also the fact that it wasn't anywhere near long enough. Another 50 pages would have made this far more satisfying, but alas, I'll take t...
  • Silke
    Update: Help I can feel myself sliding back into the pit of hell that is called my obsession with Captive Prince. I'm beyond saving.I enjoyed this way more than I thought I would! I didn’t care much about Ancel while reading the trilogy but this short story made me look at him differently. He’s not so bad, and this one was actually pretty funny. I love reading about Damen and Laurent from someone else’s POV so these short stories are perfec...
  • Elena
    A very sweet, well-written addition to the Captive Prince series!It was very interesting to see the "garden scene" and then the great hall scene through Ancel's eyes... ;)As for Ancel himself? I started up disliking him and thinking what a sneaky, plotting pest he is! but... ended up liking him ?!?! Lord Berenger was hard to decipher but at the end (when some of his reasons were revealed) I felt for him, too... :)Off to Prince's Gambi...
  • Eugenia
    Well, isn’t Ancel a saucy, social-climbing, creative and undaunted whore? I think I might love him.An intriguing short story set during the Captive Prince.
  • Jex L.
    Loved it, but I feel empty knowing this is the last CP short (last Captive Prince story...? I hope not). The hangover is real.
  • Maria
    it was interesting & I’m grateful for this but some of the disturbing scenes from book one made a cameo and. no thanks WHY DIDN’T I KNOW THIS WAS A THING
  • rin (lorenzo)
    i decided to leave this rating at 3 because i really really liked the writing, it's so Pacat and it's brillianti loved berengeri loved seeing that laurent had supporti loved interactions between ancel and berenger especially the constant "i see" bit lmaobut i really don't understand why this short is about like on of the least relevant characters in the whole universe. exploring previously unexplored characters? im all for it. but idk can we like...
  • Alexis (TheSlothReader)
    To be honest, this was my least favorite of the short stories. I can't say that I was overly interested in Ancel as a character when I read Captive Prince. As such, I didn't really care that much to read his story. I enjoyed his relationship with Berenger but the ending was pretty unsatisfying. I'm going to give it 3 stars because I still enjoy Pacat's writing style and I enjoyed being able to see the events of CP from a different point of view. ...

    icb that im here now, crying over ancel,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
  • TS
    I don’t know how C.S. Pacat managed to make me interested in the story arc of a character I couldn’t care less about but somehow she did so clearly she’s magic4 stars!Things I enjoyed in this short story:• Berenger!!! Only C.S. Pacat could make me fall in love with a completely new character in under 40 pages. • I’d like to think that he becomes besties with laurent and damen post-“war”/Regent’s and Kastor’s coup d’état• ...

    THE LAST LINE oh my godGoodbye, Captive Prince, you were amazing :’)
  • iam
    Reread August 2018: Last of the four Captive Prince short stories (five if you count The Training of Erasmus) that is set before and during the events of book1.I absolutely loved reading about Ancel. He is a deeply fascinating and complex character and his ambition and pro-action is incredible, if ruthless at times. I loved his story, and I loved Berenger, the noble holding Ancel's contract. Through the both of them we get to see a bit about...
  • Chiara
    Leave it to C.S Pacat to take one of my least favorite characters of the entire series and turn him into one of my babies! I was not as excited for Pet as I was for the other three short stories, but let me tell you, friends, I would like to slap myself in the face for ever doubting this would be anything less than a masterpiece!Let's set aside the Damen and Laurent references, because OF COURSE I loved them with every fiber of my body. Seeing Da...
  • Giedre
    3.5/5Who knew I was gonna be interested in reading a short story about Ancel? Not me. CS Pacat did, though. Honestly, I'm disappointed this wasn't longer. I wanted more Ancel, because I thought he was amazing. I also wanted a bit more development to the central relationship. That said, the ending? Well played, CS Pacat, well played.

    Oh my God....this was everything 😭😭 I can't believe this is the end, I wasn't entirely sure I was going to love this so much because we go back to CP as opposed to more on what happens after KR but I loved it so much!Ancel 😭💕 Berenger 😭💕And that ending oh my gosh all the feels since we know now he did win!
  • JV
    "But if he wins?" The overtly ambitious Pet that is Ancel. Nothing would ever stop him from getting what he wants. He's a spectacle to himself and others, especially to that of noble births. Totally unsympathetic, he uses his antics to dazzle all those around him and when the offer is right, he would take it. As a pleasure slave, he's cynical and great at faking things. As much as he wanted to please his new master, Berenger, it just wouldn't wo...

    "Sus ojos tan verdes como esmeraldas. Sólo que no tan caros. Todavía."5/5 estuvo genial, para ser una novela corta la verdad es que pasa de todo, me sorprendió mucho.

    Out of all the Captive Prince short stories this was the best. I really want to read more about Ancel and Berenger.
