After reading the first book in this trilogy, A Girl of Fire and Thorns, I decided that this trilogy was your typical fantasy story about a heroine who is under pressure to save the world. I wasn't sure if I really wanted to continue with…

I loved watching Elisa grow and mature in this book. We had seen glimmers of the queen she would become in the first book, but it's not until this book that queen comes to the forefront. She's still uncertain and still learning, but she…

That ending! NO! Loved this book. Elisa is dealing with the issues involved with being a foreign new ruler (A Queen without a King, no less) such as riots, mutinies, and assassination attempts. She strives through this, though, and…

This book was even more engaging than the first. A continuation of the story which began with "The Girl of Fire and Thorns". More character development, more action, and more romance. Excellent.

In the midst of assassination attempts and a struggle to consolidate her queenship, Elisa decides to undertake a journey to undersand the source of her magic. The romance (foreshadowed in the previous book) simmers nicely and Elisa spends…

This is an AMAZING book! Rae Carson has written an elaborate tale full of adventure and romance, with unique characters in a magical and traitorous world. Elisa is a strong female champion who grows from a naive princess in the first book,…

Not a typical middle of a trilogy book (since book 2s seem to be boring and just a long-drawn way of getting the reader from the first to the third book). This one was actually a great continuation of the first, good character development…

Wow- a great 2nd book of the trilogy - even better than the 1st. I love Elisa and Hector. I can't wait to read Bitter Kingdom.

I am pleased to say that this book was as amazing as the first! I read all 400+ pages in one sitting, it's that good. Rae Carson is now one of my favorite authors, these books are now some of my favorite fiction, and Elisa tops the charts…

What I loved about this one was that despite Elisa's growth in the first book, she still had a long way to go in this one, so her character development anything but stagnated. I also loved how the stakes just got higher as the story went…

I devoured this book, and am thrilled with the character development and plot line. I am amazed and excited for this writer and the continuation of this series as the layers of the world feel real, and the character attributes rely on…

This is really just a story of how a young women travels to find strength only to realize she had access to it all along, if only she had looked for it, if only she had believed in herself. It is also, of course, about love. And the…

I really hate Elisa, so it's kinda hard to like the book at all. She acts like she's humble but she is soooo full of herself. She's really holier-than-thou (which I guess with the Godstone she is). It's really, really annoying and the…

my only complaint is that people keep falling in love with her. it's kinda annoying. and then she's so surprised with it! *sigh* i get it. i do. but seriously...

Why do I love these books so much? First, Carson has built a complex and believable world. But more than that, Carson has created a heroine who is a real person. Elisa is a smart and capable heroine struggling to find her self-confidence.…
