Det her er faktisk ikke en bog jeg er sådan helt vild efter at læse. Jeg er ikke rigtig hooked på det der teenage Game of Thrones sat i det Ottomanske rige. Det Ottomanske Riger lyder fedt, men jeg gider ikke de der wannabe Game of Thrones-bøger. Der er altid for mange POV til, at det bliver rigtig spændende synes jeg. Men så kom coveret, og nu er jeg alligevel lidt interesseret. Det er vildt pænt!
NO ONE EXPECTS A PRINCESS TO BE BRUTAL. And Lada Dragwlya likes it that way. Ever since she and her gentle younger brother, Radu, were wrenched from their homeland of Wallachia and abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman courts, Lada has known that being ruthless is the key to survival. She and Radu are doomed to act as pawns in a vicious game, an unseen sword hovering over their every move. For the lineage that makes them special also makes them targets.
Lada despises the Ottomans and bides her time, planning her vengeance for the day when she can return to Wallachia and claim her birthright. Radu longs only for a place where he feels safe. And when they meet Mehmed, the defiant and lonely son of the sultan, who’s expected to rule a nation, Radu feels that he’s made a true friend—and Lada wonders if she’s finally found someone worthy of her passion.
But Mehmed is heir to the very empire that Lada has sworn to fight against—and that Radu now considers home. Together, Lada, Radu, and Mehmed form a toxic triangle that strains the bonds of love and loyalty to the breaking point.
Coveret er som sagt virkelig pænt, men titlen synes jeg lyder ret træls. Den ligger bare ikke godt i munden synes jeg.
