The book promised a ‘toxic triangle’ and mate, did it deliver.
This quote marks the point where uber-tough deposed princess Lada freaks the bojangles out of the Ottoman court and the ‘foul man’ chosen to be her husband. And Mehmed, son of the Sultan, is so amused by her antics he makes her and her beautiful brother Radu his companions.
Thus starts the ‘toxic triangle’. It’s a pivotal moment, and you’ve got to hand it to Lada for pure attitude. I’m not a huge fan of toxicity, but if you are, jump on in! Because this is a brilliantly written book with a captivating level of world-building that absorbs you into 15th Century Transylvania.
Check it out – ‘And I Darken‘ by Kiersten White.

I hope you love it! I had trouble liking the main characters, which is always a downer for me. I want to love MCs, I want to dream about them, want to meet them. What I did love about this book was the history and world-building. Many of the MCs are based on real historical figures, and I find that fascinating. Enjoy! Heather
