  • Emily May
    "They are soldiers. They depend upon routine, and anything out of the ordinary will give them pause. And they are men. They hate to be insulted, but they love to hear others mocked. And they are fools, because they cannot imagine that a woman alone in the woods would be a threat." That was AWESOME. I guess it's my "western" ignorance that keeps me thinking of this series as fantasy. It feels, to me at least, like fantasy. And yet, both And I Dark...

    ....Hold hands with the devil until you are both over the bridge.....Or kill the devil and burn the bridge so no one can get to you. [tour guide voice] and to your right, you can see me, clearly still recovering from the jet lag of reading this book.You know when you stay up all night reading and the caffeine starts to wear off and suddenly you’re lying face down on your bed like a dried clementine with zero sense of space or time?? That was m...

    Let us begin!!**************THERE WILL BE SOME SPOILERS *************Okay, so I freaking hate Mehmed! He was alright in the beginning of the first book when him and Lada, and Radu were just friends. And then he becomes Sultan and Lada encourages him and he's a prat! First off, I don't like that crap custom of having the harem. He's in love with Lada but popping out kids. My arse! And Lada and Radu just keep loving him no matter what. The hell? An...

    Nicolae put an arm around Lada, drawing her close. ''Make a deal with the devil until you are both over the bridge.''''Am I the devil, or are they?'' Too often I read YA fantasy series that make me ask myself, ‘‘Why am I reading this book? What is the purpose of this story? Haven’t I read something similar recently?’’ But with this particular series, the purpose is clear. Lada wants to be Prince of Wallachia. She will stop at nothing t...

    “The daughter of Wallachia wants her knife back.”•Last year, I adored And I Darken. I think its publication was a true event; I don’t know of any other YA historical/fantasy series or standalones that can be said to get close to what And I Darken presented its readers with. Kiersten White had clearly meant her story to stand out as unique, and she succeeded gloriously. Just the fact that her heroine didn’t put love above anything else w...
  • Elise (TheBookishActress)
    this book is imprinted on my damn soul and forever will be. This was way better than book one. Book one was good, but people, this might be one of my favorite books of all time. And I Darken was a well-written and developed book, but I had mixed feelings on the romance and wanted a bit more in the character department. I did not expect either aspect to improve. I definitely did not expect White to fix BOTH of my issues with book one. It's not oft...

    When I finished the first book in 'The Conqueror's Saga', I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next book. I absolutely loved Mehmed, Lada and Radu. I was completely taken in by their unique personalities and the love that they had for one another. Despite the fact that their interests were often conflicting, they managed to remain the closest of friends, and sometimes more.However, I am sad to say that I didn't get the same pleasure from readin...
  • Cait (Paper Fury)
    This was so bloody and so brilliant. Like Lada has never had any chill, but she has LESS THAN NONE NOW because wow. This is fantastically dark and twisty and intriguing and also kind of depressing?? I admit I'm not giving it the full stars mostly because I felt...a bit slumped after the end. I shall explain. But just so you know: HOLY WOW I LOVE THIS SERIES A LOT.+ The characters are totally what's absolutely caught my heart.Like put in all the H...
