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.


From New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White comes the first book in a dark, sweeping new series in which heads will roll, bodies will be impaled . . . and hearts will be broken.

My Thoughts:

Since I heard about AND I DARKEN I could not wait to get my hands on it. Having been a long time fan of Kiersten White I knew that I would be in for a spellbinding adventure of romance and darkness. Although it was not as I initially expected it to be I was sucked into this story right from the beginning.

“I cannot afford to lose you, too"
"You cannot lose something you do not own. Take me with you”
Kiersten White, And I Darken 

AND I DARKEN is not only a tale that makes your heart beat faster with romance but it is also a story of Lada, a girl that comes into her own in this gender swapping historical tale of Vlad Dracula. This story is not what I expected but I was wholly pleased with where Kiersten took me and gave me an adventure with a kick as female that I could admire. Although I would admit that she would scare me with with her brutality, I could understand where she was coming from.


This is an impressive book, and I believe adults as well as teens will enjoy it because her writing in this book is that solid. I think it's Kiersten's best book yet and I highly recommend it to everyone that likes a bit of history and romance.

Hi! I give the most awkward hugs in the world. I also write books. I'd opt for one of my books over one of my hugs. Lucky for you, I write a lot of them.

The New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy (Paranormalcy, Supernaturally, and Endlessly) is available now. Mind Games and its sequel Perfect Lies are also out, staring at you from a bookshelf. Intensely. An Egyptian mythology-based standalone, The Chaos of Stars, will keep you company on cold, dark nights. And Illusions of Fate, a dreamy historical fantasy, wants to be your new boyfriend. It's a really good kisser.

Coming June 28th is And I Darken, an epic historical based on a gender-swapped Vlad the Impaler. It's filled with love daggers, which are like love triangles only much sharper and way more likely to kill you.
