The second book in Rae Carson's award-winning The Girl of Fire and Thorns fantasy trilogy, perfect for fans of Game of Thrones and Kristin Cashore. Tamora Pierce called the first book, The Girl of Fire and Thorns, "A unique and engrossing read!" A seventeen-year-old princess turned war queen faces sorcery, adventure, untold power, and romance as she fulfills her epic destiny.In The Girl of Fire and Thorns, Elisa won the war. She saved her kingdom. But no one prepared her for how hard it is to recover from a battle, or to rule a people who still don't trust her. She's still fighting—against assassination attempts and more—and her enemies lie both outside her court and within it. So Elisa will cross the ocean in search of the perilous, uncharted, and mythical source of the Godstone's power. With her go a one-eyed warrior, a loyal friend, an enemy defector, and the man she is falling in love with. A breathtaking, romantic, and dangerous second volume to Rae Carson's ambitious trilogy. Cinda Williams Chima proclaimed about the first book, The Girl of Fire and Thorns, "I LOVED this book!" and Veronica Roth agreed, saying, "Definitely recommended."

But I still manage to finagle time here and there. And devoted some of that time to this series, which wasn't...
My first word after finishing this book? Wow! Rae Carson's "The Girl of Fire and Thorns" series tackles the topics of religion and sorcery. Carson continues the story of a gutsy seventeen-year-old queen with "The Crown of Embers".The second installment in the series pushes the button a bit more when...
Hi guys, I hope you all are having a great day, and this is my review to The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson. This is the second book in The Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy. This book starts off when Elisa is queen. Now, I did enjoy this book, but I don’t think it was as good as the first. Thankfull...
I haven't been this excited in a long time! I'm not saying that this one is so much better than the first book, because they're both equally great. And the first half of this book that had to do with politics and such got a bit tedious even if it was necessary. And it took a while for the adventur...
