Can't Wait Wednesday #38: Bright We Burn (The Conqueror's Saga #3) by Kiersten White)





Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.   I'm back to another sequel this week.  And this one has a cover just as beautiful as the first two in the series.  I'm guessing they won't have physical ARCs of it.  Which makes me sad, because I want a matching set of these beautiful covers!  Yeah, I can buy the finished copies too, but I want this too!  Oh well.  Anyway, here is the blurb from Goodreads:


Haunted by the sacrifices he made in Constantinople, Radu is called back to the new capital. Mehmed is building an empire, becoming the sultan his people need. But Mehmed has a secret: as emperor, he is more powerful than ever . . . and desperately lonely. Does this mean Radu can finally have more with Mehmed . . . and would he even want it? 

Lada's rule of absolute justice has created a Wallachia free of crime. But Lada won't rest until everyone knows that her country's borders are inviolable. Determined to send a message of defiance, she has the bodies of Mehmed's peace envoy delivered to him, leaving Radu and Mehmed with no choice. If Lada is allowed to continue, only death will prosper. They must go to war against the girl prince. 

But Mehmed knows that he loves her. He understands her. She must lose to him so he can keep her safe. Radu alone fears that they are underestimating his sister's indomitable will. Only by destroying everything that came before--including her relationships--can Lada truly build the country she wants. 

Claim the throne. Demand the crown. Rule the world.


So, isn't that cover to die for?  Have you read this series yet?  I just really have enjoyed how original this series is and all the what-ifs that the author poses by retelling this bit of history.  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

    1. I was worried if I'd be able to pick up the second one after so long between them, but I was able to get back into it pretty quickly and easily. And I really enjoyed it! Now I am so anxious for the last book. Thanks for stopping by!
