“She wasn't interested in telling other people's futures. She was interested in going out and finding her own.” All Blue's life, she's been surrounded by psychics: her mother, her aunt, her mother's live-in best friends.

Genesis did everything she could to prepare for the abortion, but nothing could steady her for how it would feel to walk out into an empty waiting room, without so much as a good-bye text from the boyfriend who left her there: alone, wounded, and sixty miles from home. He won't answer his phone, and rumors are flying that he's already moved on to her former best friend, Vanessa. Living as a seventeen-year-old with a deceased father and an emotionally absent mother, life hasn't been easy, but this form of grief is all new territory for Gen, and she's going to have to find healing in any way she can get it: even if it means returning to the stage she never thought she'd have the strength to face again.

"They had nothing better, nowhere else to go. They were loyal to her, and to the hope that perhaps she would find them a place in the world." After leaving Mehmed's side to carve out her own path to the throne of Wallachia, Lada Dracul finds herself without allies, assistance, or power to speak of, besides the loyalty of her men. When she finds that Mehmed has not been entirely honest or beneficial to her cause, Lada's rage encourages her to finally embrace the cruelty of her nature and to seek out the throne via any means necessary. Meanwhile, Radu helps Mehmed plot to overtake Constantinople, but the waters become muddied when Radu is sent into the city as a spy and begins to second-guess his own motives as well as the sultan's. Will Radu's love for his childhood friend be enough, or must he, too, find his own way?
* Stacking the Shelves Saturdays is a meme hosted by Tynga over at Tynga’s Reviews. Every Saturday, bloggers can showcase new additions – whether that’s to a physical shelf, a virtual shelf, or even your TBR!* Since I add so many books to my Goodreads TBR shelf weekly, and prefer to post my hauls monthly, I'll be using this space to show you guys some of the newest addition to my TBR shelf! I added a LOT of books to my TBR shelf this week... don't mind me, just being crushed by my TBR...
