Next week, on Feb 2nd, is a date that all of us here at Binge on Books has noted in the calendar, circled in bright red ink, with a warning out to all friends and family: don’t even bother talking to us, expecting us to work/make dinner/interact with you, or anticipate us doing anything other than reading Kings Rising, the highly and hotly anticipated third installment in C.S. Pacat’s groundbreaking Captive Prince series. It’s 7 long years of waiting for some and finally, FINALLY, it will be released.
If you’ve never read Captive Prince, stop everything you’re doing right now and read it. I’m not joking. Read it. Now. Right now. It’s one of the most gorgeous, heart breaking, revolutionary works of genre fiction I’ve read to date. It’s a book that’s stuck with me since I first reviewed it back in 2013 and one that is routinely recommended by me to anyone looking for something extraordinary. It’s one series that will obliterate what you think about political intrigue, romance, and fantasy, overturning stereotypes and engrossing you. It’s the book you’ve been dying to read but didn’t even know it.
In anticipation of the third and final book’s release, I sat down in my latest Author Chat with Binge on Books to discuss all things Captive Prince with C.S. Pacat herself. Cat was lovely enough to submit to a lightning round of silly questions and a rapid fire Q&A about craft, upcoming projects, and Kings Rising itself. She even goes so far as to discuss the question at the forefront of every long time reader’s mind: did Laurent know?
So with that, I give you, the January 2016 edition of Author Chat with Binge on Books, featuring C.S. Pacat!
C. S. Pacat is the author of the Captive Prince trilogy, including Captive Prince and Prince’s Gambit. Born in Australia and educated at the University of Melbourne, she has since lived in a number of different cities, including Tokyo and Perugia. She currently resides and works in Melbourne.
