And he also wanted to rule Wallachia.

And while I doubt Kiersten White would take such a dramatic change such as Mehmad dying, I would also consider that this is fiction and while inspired by historical context, isn't ruled by it and doesn't follow it completely. (less)

“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 the Impaler reimagined as a woman. In other words, this se

THIS COVER HAS ME SO MANY DIFFERENT KINDS OF SHOOK OMG

June is so far away and THIS HURTS MY HEART SO MUCH.

This series honestly owns my soul and all I want is for a certain two gay cuties to get together and also for a certain shitty Sultan to DIE.

That's not asking for much, is it...?

My favourite fruit on the cover is a sign from Kiersten White that she's writing this book for me. So no worry, buddies, our babies will be fine! Because if they aren't, I'll probably burst many a vessel! Yay!

I woke up extra-emotional today, and I want to say something.
This series has being such an immense part of my life for the last two years. All of the struggles I faced in school, in life, I survived. Because I have Lada's courage and Radu's faith. Every time I feel like I won't ever get up again, I think of all the impossible things that my precious babies have conquered, and I keep going.
Now that AP exam seasons are coming, my life is just slowly deteriorating. The next

Shelves: ya, arc
Received an ARC from the publisher for an honest review.

The third and final book in the Conqueror's Saga provides a complete and satisfying ending that is missing in many trilogies. The reader actually gets closure!

This installment is more focused on Radu and Lada and the consequences of Lada's rule of Wallachia, rather than places that we have been familiar with in the Ottoman Empire. The one question I kept asking myself was will Lada ever give up? What will be her final breaking point.
