Book Review: The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

This was an interesting read. For those of you who have read The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley, this have the same feel to it. (although personally, I loved Blue Sword more - I love all of Robin McKinley's work!) This is a book filled with everything: magic, adventure, romance, danger, mystery and more! Find out what everyone is talking about and check this one out!

Summary:

Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.

Elisa is the chosen one.

But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can't see how she ever will.
Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.


And he's not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people's savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.
Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.


Most of the chosen do.
