Genre: YA Fantasy Romance
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Release Date: June 28, 2016

Goodreads Synopsis:


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.


I have loved all of White’s books so far and I am sure this will be another. I’m always excited for her books, because I love her writing and her characters, and her books tend to fly by faster than I want them to. I can’t wait for this one.

Special Mention:
Never Ever by Sara Saedi? out on June 21, 2016—I’m intrigued by this book. I do enjoy the story of Peter Pan, and this sounds like a nice take on it. With more romance, and more secrets, possibly darker.

What’s on your list?
