It’s a launch party! New York Times bestselling YA author, Kiersten White of the Paranormalcy trilogy and Illusions of Fate, is releasing a brand new series, the Darken trilogy. The first title, And I Darken, takes place in 1435 Transylvania and centers around Lady Dragwyla, the daughter of Vlad Dracula.
