No one expects a princess to be brutal. And Lada Dragwyla likes it that way.
Ever since she and her brother were abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman sultan’s courts, Lada has known that ruthlessness is the key to survival. For the lineage that makes her and her brother special also makes them targets.
The first of an epic new trilogy starring the ultimate anti-princess who does not have a gentle heart. Lada knows how to wield a sword, and she’ll stop at nothing to keep herself and her brother alive.
I heard about this book from a book club meeting I attended in Adelaide (BTW if you live in Adelaide and don’t attend the YA Circle Book Club meetings, what are you doing with your life?) and bought this book solely on the recommendations from the girls, Sian and Tori. Considering that I hadn’t really read or heard anything about the plot of this book, it was pure luck that this purchase turned out to be a good one.
