The Conqueror Saga by Kiersten White


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, 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.

    1. Yaaay! I hope that you enjoy it! I’m kind of biased since the heroine is based on Vlad the Impaler, who is a hero in my country, Romania, (and more so my region, Transylvania) hehe!

    1. She is super badass! And she’s based on Vlad the Impaler (aka she is Vlad but female hehe), who is a hero in Transylvania, where I’m born 😉

  1. I haven’t read this series yet but it sounds so fantastic! And I love your character card 🙂 Gorgeous!

  2. Oh this is such a fun idea, I love whenever we are talking about particular characters in books 🙂 I haven’t read this series, but I have heard amazing things about it and many bloggers have recommended it…. maybe I should add it to my TBR at some point? Haha 🙂

    1. I really really like the series 😀 especially since it’s rare to read about my part of the world in YA books hehe. I hope that you’ll love it if you do end up picking it up! Thanks so much for reading! <3

      1. Also I just commented on your post and it’s not appearing haha so I must be in your spam folder. I’m working with a tech team to get out of spam prison right now hahaha

  3. I am LOVING everything about this post & new meme, thank you for sharing Flavia! <3 <3 <3 I seriously need to get on this series, it has all the ingredients to be a hit in my corner. I also love the flexibility of this meme & the topics! I'm on it! 🙂

    1. Isn’t it?! Such a fun meme.

      Also thank youuu! I think the eyebrows do it for me haha. I think Lada’s face bone structure isn’t quite as delicate as Natalia’s…but it’s close. And oooo I like Anna Popplewell for her too!
