Good morning, Rabid Readers! When I read the teaser for Kiersten White’s AND I DARKEN, I knew it was going to be fantastic, so when I was offered a spot on the blog tour, I jumped on it. Newly released this week, make sure you check out this fantastical take on Vlad the Impaler’s daughter for yourself. #ikillinfidels
And I Darken by Kiersten White
Series: The Conquerors Saga #1
Published by Delacorte Press
Published on: June 28 2016
Genres: Half-fantasy, Young Adult
No one expects a princess to be brutal. And Lada Dragwlya likes it that way. Ever since she and her gentle younger brother, Radu, were wrenched from their homeland of Wallachia and abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman courts, Lada has known that being ruthless is the key to survival. She and Radu are doomed to act as pawns in a vicious game, an unseen sword hovering over their every move. For the lineage that makes them special also makes them targets.
Lada despises the Ottomans and bides her time, planning her vengeance for the day when she can return to Wallachia and claim her birthright. Radu longs only for a place where he feels safe. And when they meet Mehmed, the defiant and lonely son of the sultan, Radu feels that he’s made a true friend—and Lada wonders if she’s finally found someone worthy of her passion.
But Mehmed is heir to the very empire that Lada has sworn to fight against—and that Radu now considers home. Together, Lada, Radu, and Mehmed form a toxic triangle that strains the bonds of love and loyalty to the breaking point.
