She does not know what awaits her at the enemy's gate. Elisa is a hero. She led her people to victory over a terrifying, sorcerous army. Her place as the country's ruler should be secure. But it isn't. Her enemies come at her like ghosts in a dream, from foreign realms and even from within her own court. And her destiny as the chosen one has not yet been fulfilled. To conquer the power she bears, once and for all, Elisa must follow a trail of long-forgotten—and forbidden—clues, from the deep, hidden catacombs of her own city to the treacherous seas. With her go a one-eyed spy, a traitor, and the man whom—despite everything—she is falling in love with. If she's lucky, she will return from this journey. But there will be a cost.

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...
