"Lush and ominous."--SLJ
“A+, 5 knives.”—Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling co-author of the STARBOUND and ILLUMINAE FILES trilogies

“Kiersten White is a genius.”—Justine Larbalestier, author of MY SISTER ROSA and LIAR
Praise for AND I DARKEN:
“A dark jewel of a story, one that gleams with fierce, cunning characters—absolutely riveting.” —Alexandra Bracken, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Passenger
“Kiersten White at her absolute best. The epic story will thrill you, the Transylvanian setting will transport you, and the characters (especially the fierce, take-no-prisoners Lada) will capture your heart. Don’t miss it.” —Cynthia Hand, New York Times bestselling author of the Unearthly series
“Sweeping and epic, AND I DARKEN is a gender-bent take on history that gives us a fierce and brutal heroine, a fascinating time period, and a beautifully intelligent look at love, family, and power. I loved every twisty, bloody moment of it!” —Rachel Hawkins, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author
“As richly complex and glittering as the Ottoman Empire itself, AND I DARKEN is daring in its scope and brilliantly executed. The fiercely dark Lada is a razor-edged sword tempered in the blood of family betrayals and the fire of her own passions. I was instantly and utterly smitten. She haunted me long after I turned the final page and left me craving more.” —Robin LaFevers, New York Times bestselling author of the His Fair Assassin series
“A jewel of a book—a jewel embedded in the hilt of a blood-soaked sword. A brilliantly envisioned alternate history that is meticulously detailed but compulsively readable, this is a story I could not put down. I demand the sequel like Lada demands Wallachia!” —Beth Revis, New York Times bestselling author of the Across the Universe series
“An intense, risky, passionate novel that dragged me through love and danger with the force of its heroine’s heart and the power of its hero’s faith.” —Tessa Gratton, author of the Gods of New Asgard series
“Girls with teeth and priorities. I want to read this book forever.” —E. K. Johnston, author of A Thousand Nights
★ “Full of sword fights, assassination plots, and palace intrigues, this novel is ambitious in scope and concept and reveals a fascinating, important, and somewhat obscure slice of history . . . the novel is breathtakingly good.” —School Library Journal, Starred review
★ “White deftly weaves historical fact into this complex concoction of love, war, politics, homosexuality, religion, loyalty, and friendship.” —Booklist, Starred review
An Amazon Best of the Month Selection
“A dark, gritty, and seriously badass epic that will have you dying for more . . . required reading for every feminist fantasy fan.” —BuzzFeed
“Evocative . . . this book takes no prisoners.” —NPR
“An addictively readable book with a depth and richness that justifies every one of its 496 pages.” —The Salt Lake Tribune
“A dark, vicious book with beautiful storytelling, well-developed characters, and a fast-paced, intricate plot.” —Paws and Paperbacks
“Fantastic.” —One Page at a Time

“Vicious and unforgiving and ruthless and oh so enthralling. Also, the FEELS.” —Star-Crossed Book Blog
“A jewel. . . . I personally love this book to the core.” —When Curiosity Killed the Cat
“White does everything right. . . . Fast-paced, exquisitely detailed enough to bring this familiar era to life, and with the added benefit of revisiting one of history’s most infamous warrior-rulers, there is nothing not to love in And I Darken. Waiting to see how the rest of Lada’s story unfolds is going to be excruciating.” —That’s What She Read
“A dark, twisted, savagely beautiful story almost gothic in its imagery and fearless in its storytelling. It is an immersive experience; one I fully intend to revisit often. It’s witty, at turns touching, more than occasionally funny, and unapologetically violent. . . the beginning of a journey of self-discovery, romance, angst, loyalty, betrayal, sacrifice, and war.” —Shelf Envy

It’s very well paced and the relationships between Lada and the other characters is just as cool and fiery as before. She is a force that Mehmed will not know how to handle when she comes for him.
Speaking of Mehmed, how dare he do that to Radu?? HOW. DARE. HE.
He started falling out of my good graces towards the middle-end of And I Darken. And then in Now I Rise he has just become a constant ache in my chest (not a good one) and a pain in my head. He has got the city that he dreamed and at the very costly price of Radu. Hope he’s happy. Because I’m. Not.
Radu and Lada remain my favorite complicated YA siblings. Each gets their own story in this book, but Radu really shines as he lives the siege of Constantinople.
The choices in this book were difficult and came with a price, but I imagine the final book in the sequel will be even bloodier.
