    “Disrupt stability. Petition for gold. Provoke the greatest empire on the face of the earth.” He paused. “This is going to be fun.” Oh, it was. So much bloody, nasty fun.I have really loved this series. I mean, why wouldn't I? There's a murderous antiheroine who's definitely more anti than heroine. There's battles and backstabbing and unrequited love. There's alt-history that's - let's face it - a lot more alt than history. There's Vlad t...

    I genuinely feel like my heart belongs to so many fictional characters but I wish it would just come home to me, you know?I love this series so much. The only way I could accurately get across my passion is either in multi-page, overtly dramatic, 19th-century-style rose-scented love letters or just a live footage of me breakdancing while crying for five minutes straight.Yeah, I know I have things to be happy about but my heart kind of hurts knowi...

    personally, I feel as if my heart was ripped out of my fucking chest and my life was just changed for the better. I do not have the Words To Convey how much this ending for a series meant to mehere was my lowkey spoilery initial list of what I wanted out of this sequel:• please let Radu be happy• you know exactly who I want him to be happy with• LET NAZIRA REUNITE WITH HER WIFE• Mehmed dying maybe • honestly I think Lada's going to die...

    #1 And I Darken ★★★★★#2 Now I Rise ★★★★★#3 Bright We Burn ★★★☆☆ This series has been an incredible journey, and I was both eager and terrified to see how it would end. As many of you already know, I tend to avoid series finales like the plague. They’re almost always my least favorite part of a series, probably because I like very particular types of endings where all the loose ends are tied and everyone has complet...

    This was brutal and bloody and so perfectly and epically satisfying. Which are words I'M CRYING AS I TYPE because finales scare the frick out of me...and this one managed to stab me in the soul (like 5 times) and then still give me everything I hoped it would. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Everything is perfect. I will also scream quietly into the void for 2-3 working days before I feel like rereading the whole trilogy agaaaaaain.THANK YOU TO THE AUTHOR FOR A ...

    this series means the world to me. I can never find the proper words to describe just how much I’ve loved this gory, bloody, brutal journey that Lada has taken me on, and the moving, spiritual way Radu changed me. it took me a straight three days to muster the courage to read the epilogue because I was not ready in any way, shape or form for the ending of a trilogy that’s just established a place in my heart that no other book will take. I’...

    Gritty. Bloody. Unputdownable. I’m afraid of what goes on in the mind of Kiersten White and to be honest, the words creative and talented seem like benign descriptors. Do yourself a favor and read this series. Full review to come.

    4.5 stars “Who was she? She was the dragon. Her country had teeth and claws and fire, and she would use every last bit of them.” I spent the entire duration of reading Bright We Burn either doing this:Or this:The Conqueror's Saga smashed its way into my stone cold heart with And I Darken, trod on the pieces, then threw what was left in a washer and set it on heavy duty in Now I Rise. And now Bright We Burn has come to see the job done. “She...
  • Delirious Disquisitions
    I cried my way through 30% of this book. I'm just so incredibly sad that it's over. At one point I found I was devastated thinking how very few people know of her struggles to get the throne. And then I remembered she never existed at all and it was another man's fictionalized story. It just goes to show how much I loved this book and how vividly these characters shave left their impressions on me. I'm going to miss Lada. I'm also going to miss R...
  • Justine
    This is a buddy read with the awesome Natalie Monroe!This is as close to a perfect series finale as one could ever want or expect. Ever since Now I Rise, I've always felt this need to get my hands on Bright We Burn. The last book left us with a lot of unresolved subplots that demand immediate answers. White has structured Now I Rise in such a way that you are left with an intense desire to know more and all you can do is hope that your favorite c...

    “She had been too kind, too gentle. She had tried keeping what she could intact, tried building on what was already there. But the entire foundation was rotten. She could not build a strong kingdom by removing only a few of the most decay-ridden stones. She would have to dismantle the entire thing. She would have to burn it—all of it—to the ground. Only then could Wallachia rise anew from the ashes.”  5 stars for Radu4 stars for Lada4,5...

    Holy shit. Such a brilliant final installment of an equally brilliant story. I apologise in advance if this turns out incoherent and inconsistent and ends up being me jumping from aspect I loved onto the next, I just finished it and my mind is blown and I need to go and re-read the entire trilogy again because it's just utterly epic. Lada has turned into the most brutal, and probably most authentic, version of herself in this installment prepar...

    I was so hoping this could take me by surprise and I would love it but it just really wasn't for me. My friend gave me a shot of her arc so I could read it along with the rest of the series for my tag and I am disappointed to say I don't really care for this series that much.
  • Natasha
    Holy shit. Every sense of the phrase said in regards to everything, with every emotion.
