On My Wishlist: And I Darken by Kiersten White


And I Darken
by Kiersten White
Series: The Conquerors Saga #1
475 p.
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Published: 6/28/16
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, who’s expected to rule a nation, 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.
Been enjoying a lot of YA fantasy. Need more. :)

  9. I'm on a fantasy kick too. I like this author's writing. I also want to see a female villain. I haven't seen too many of those in YA.

    1. I still need to read her and I don't think I've read many female YA villains either.

  11. I love White although her books can be very YA. She's one of the few YA exceptions that I have, her books are always easy reads and so witty. I am curious about this book as well.
