No one expects a princess to be brutal. And Lada Dragwyla likes it
that way. Ever since she and her brother were abandoned by their
father to be raised in the Ottoman sultan's courts, Lada has known
that ruthlessness is the key to survival. For the lineage that
makes her and her brother special also makes them targets. Lada
hones her skills as a warrior as she nurtures plans to wreak
revenge on the empire that holds her captive. Then she and Radu
meet the sultan's son, Mehmed, and everything changes. Now Mehmed
unwittingly stands between Lada and Radu as they transform from
siblings to rivals, and the ties of love and loyalty that bind them
together are stretched to breaking point. The first of an epic new
trilogy starring the ultimate anti-princess who does not have a
gentle heart. Lada knows how to wield a sword, and she'll stop at
nothing to keep herself and her brother alive.

Dark at times, with a rich deeply layered plot

And I Darken is a beautiful book. Historical fiction at itís best. A book you can sink into and forget who you are and where you live. Dark at times, with a rich deeply layered plot and well-developed characters. Intrigue, espionage, treason, murder, betrayal, loyalty and lies interspersed with love and swords.
I love how Kiersten White incorporates Islam in a positive way. There is far too much hate in the world and books promoting tolerance are few and far between.
