“A dark and twisty fantasy . . . think Game of Thrones, but with teens.”—Seventeen
Apparently, Seventeen has been watching the series on HBO, not reading the books, because there are tons of teens in Game of Thrones. So, so many. (The leather-bound set of the first five Game of Thrones books is massively on sale right now, by the way.)
But it should be no surprise that Steven picked this deal on And I Darken and Now I Rise, books one and two of The Conqueror’s Saga by Kiersten White. They’re each just $1.99 this weekend—a great way to get caught up on the New York Times bestselling series, since book three, Bright We Burn, came out last month.

From the publisher:
“From New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White comes the first book in a dark, sweeping new series in which heads will roll, bodies will be impaled . . . and hearts will be broken.”
Review snippets that sold us:
“Ottoman empire and the Draculas!”
“Gender-bent Vlad the Impaler!”
“What if Vlad Dracul—the historical personage, not the vampire—had been born female?”
See, this is why reviews matter. The reviews sold us, more than anything, and now we’re stoked to catch up on the series and pick up book three.
That freebie deal we promised:
On a completely different note, here’s one that’s free today. Switched, by Jen Calonita. It’s book four in the Fairy Tale Reform School series, which Erin’s had her eye on for a while. She’s sitting here wishing (out loud, with an overabundance of repetition) that the first one was on sale, since she hasn’t started the series yet. But, hey, free is free! We picked one up, and we’ll keep the series on our radar.
