Literary career[edit | edit source]

Pacat's first novel Captive Prince began as an online serial fiction on LiveJournal, where it garnered viral attention. Self-published in February 2013, Captive Prince was then acquired by Penguin Random House, and published commercially in April 2015 in multiple territories. The sequel Prince's Gambit was released in July 2015, and the final novel in the trilogy Kings Rising was released in February 2016.[4][3]

In 2017 he revealed that he was working on a new comic series Fence, about the world of fencing.[5][6] The series has since been expanded to include a series of novels by Sarah Rees Brennan[7] and was nominated for a GLAAD award in 2019.[8]

In 2019 she announced a new trilogy, DARK RISE, a YA fantasy novel series to be released in 2021.
