When I first came into contact with Dark Prince, I had just finished reading Yamila's Winter Demon, and had already fallen in love with the intriguing stories and images of romance and fantasy that Yaoi Press had to offer. Dark Prince, and it's current offspring (Bastard King), continued that journey.
Having followed this series up until it's final installment of Bastard King (3), I have grown accustomed to the semi-dark, yet pleasantly light hearted (at times) tale of brothers torn apart by an illicit romance, and the Gods (and soon to come impending threats of war) that threaten to tear their world apart. Storyline wise, the first volume moves at a rather pleasing pace that is both engaging and intriguing, romance wise the plot works itself into each moment which is (at times) hard to accomplish while creating a Yaoi tale--the characters appear comfortable within their world and the situations that they encounter, and for that I was immediately drawn into the world of Dark Prince.
Sambre creates the characters well by way of details and facial expressions, although there are moments where the art strains, the overall feel and smoothness of the characters is quite pleasing and is worth the read.
Definately would recommend the Dark Prince series along with Bastard King to any fans of Yaoi and fantasy alike, as the story surely lives up to both.
