And I Darken


Book #36 Read in 2016
And I Darken by Kiersten White

This book focuses on Vlad the Impaler's daughter Lada and son Radu.  The children are used as chess pieces by their father in his relations with other countries.  Lada is a kick ass, intelligent girl who would rather train to fight than worry about who to marry.  Radu is a shy boy who can be underestimated by his friends and his sister.  This book has lush writing and is a great historical fiction read.  A big book, I would recommend this book more for adults (due to its writing style) than high school readers.  That being said, the author is an author that has a YA reader following.  I received a copy of this book from Amazon Vine in exchange for a honest review.
