SO GOOD. Full review to come. ( )
  Stormydawnc | Jun 23, 2014 |
It's rare for me to come across the second book in a series that I liked more than the first. Whether that be because not particularly enjoying the first means I don't often pick up the second, or for some other reason, I don't know, but this was a case where I loved the second book in the series. The first just didn't draw me in as much; however, this one really did. I loved Elisa's voice in this book, her struggles, her growth. Also, Hector, well, he was swoon-worthy :) I was invested in Elisa becoming a better queen, in solving the problems of her country, and attempting to find a way to do that. Also, Storm was just a fascinating character to me, and I liked getting to know a bit more about the Inviernos. Plus, the hints of Spanish and culture made me happy. The cliff-hanger of an ending left me happy to know I can go out and grab The Bitter Kingdom right now! ( )

I finished this book in the wee hours of the morning, and have to say that I loved it tremendously! I was entranced until the very last word. It was a bit easier to follow, and I wasn't let down by the romantic aspect. There's a bit of a cliffhanger, but I was satisfied with the resolution of the plot. I LOVE how Elisa has grown into a confident woman,though she doesn't feel it at times. The evolution of the plot had me on the edge of my seat the whole time and I couldn't get enough of the romantic aspect of the book! I am soooo glad I can start on The Bitter Kingdom tonight, so I don't have to wait to know what is happening. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Hero. Foreigner. Queen. Elisa, at the age of seventeen, is all three. And all three draw enemies. Faced with assassins, court politics, and the threat of civil war, Elisa despairs of being the ruler her people need. Her only hope is the Godstone. She must master its power once and for all. She finds clues hidden in a long forgotten--and forbidden--scripture. Accompanied by a one-eyed warrior, an enemy defector, and the man she is falling in love with, Elisa takes a leap of faith and crosses an ocean in search of the ultimate source of the Godstone's power. But her faith has always had a price, and doing the right thing might mean giving up the power she desperately needs. And it might mean giving up the man she desperately loves. Rae Carson continues the epic story begun in The Girl of Fire and Thorns with a novel that is remarkable, adventurous, and even more romantic than the first"--… (more)
