Waiting on Wednesday: Bright We Burn by Kiersten White

 "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Bright We Burn
(The Conqueror’s Saga #3)
Publication Date: July 10, 2018
Hardcover, 416 pages, Delacorte Press
Genres: YA, Historical Fiction

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.

My Thoughts

Well, I still haven’t read And I Darken or Now I Rise, but I’m definitely anticipating this one. I’m still a little wigged out by the cover, so I’m hoping the UK one is better. Then, I plan on getting all three via Book Depository.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?


I LOVE your comments! And I do read all of them so keep at it! Thanks for visiting!
