I really liked this book.
The major thing that I loved was that the story begins at the very beginning of the main character's lives. Right from birth. This frightened me a bit because I thought maybe this would not progress to their young adult and adult lives. I was wrong and I loved having the whole story!
This book is full of details both in character and surroundings.
My first Ottoman Empire read and I truly enjoyed it.

The relationship between Lada and her younger brother Radu was an odd one. Lada is a special girl. She is a strong willed girl-woman in a man's world. Thus, she must be brutal and overpowering to stand out among the boys and men of her world. Unfortunately she is more man than that of her brother who is weak and cries too much.

Overall, I found the character progression satisfying. I look forward to another story with these characters.
