For fans of Game of Thrones -- this tale of political intrigue in a historical fantasy setting will satisfy readers who thirst for scheming, alliances, wars, and an empire in turmoil. When young Lada and her brother Radu are sent to the Ottoman Empire as royal hostages, Lada is distraught while Radu canít believe his good fortune. Fate throws them together with the heir to the empire, Mehmed, who grows to trust and confide in the siblings. But Lada and Radu each want something out of Mehmed, and their machinations will pit them against each other. In the end, who will win? (Oklahoma High School Sequoyah Award, 2018)
