Seventeen-year-old Eric is a kick-butt squire to the most revered and protective knight in Fallhollow—well, he would be if Sir Trogsdill allowed him to do anything even remotely chivalrous. Determined to prove his self-worth, Eric sets out to find the mythical paladin summoned to protect the realm. After all, if he can join forces with this legendary savior Sir Trogsdill will have to promote him to knighthood, right? Meanwhile, 16-year-old David is whisked off to the magical realm of Fallhollow where everyone thinks he's some sort of paladin destined to fulfill a wacked-out, two-hundred year old prophecy. As Paladin, David is supposed to help kill a dragon bent on destroying the realm, but he needs some sort of magic key to do it. The problem is that the key is around the neck of an annoying squire who's too wrapped up in proving himself which makes him completely unhelpful. With egos as big as the dragon they need to destroy, Eric and David must get over themselves or watch everything they know and love burn.

The highly anticipated, mind-blowing New York Times bestselling sequel to Kiersten White’s New York Times bestseller, AND I DARKEN—the series that reads like HBO’s Game of Thrones . . . if it were set in the Ottoman Empire. 
 
A SISTER FILLED WITH RAGE
Lada Dracul has no allies. No crown. All she has is what she’s always had: herself. After failing to secure the Wallachian throne, Lada is out to punish anyone who dares cross her. She storms the countryside with her men, but brute force isn’t getting Lada what she wants. And thinking of Mehmed, the defiant Ottoman sultan, brings little comfort to her thorny heart. There’s no time to wonder whether he still thinks about her, even loves her. She left him before he could leave her.

HER BROTHER CAUGHT IN THE CROSSHAIRS
Lada needs the support of her diplomatic younger brother, Radu. But Mehmed has sent him to Constantinople—and it’s no diplomatic mission. Mehmed wants control of the city, and Radu has earned an unwanted place as a double-crossing spy behind enemy lines. And for the first time in his life, when Lada asks him for help, he refuses . . . leading his sister to make the darkest of choices.

THE ULTIMATE POWER PLAY
Torn between loyalties to faith, to the Ottomans, and to Mehmed, Radu knows he owes Lada nothing. If she dies, he could never forgive himself—but if he fails in Constantinople, would Mehmed ever forgive him? 

As nations fall around them, the Dracul siblings must decide: what will they sacrifice to fulfill their destinies? Empires will topple, thrones will be won . . . and souls will be lost. 

Fans of Victoria Aveyard’s THE RED QUEEN and Sabaa Tahir’s A TORCH AGAINST THE NIGHT won’t want to miss this riveting and gorgeously written novel—the second in the And I Darken series.
