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."

A great middle book to a trilogy
Rae Carson delivers in a great follow up to The Girl of Fire and Thorns. I can't wait for the conclusion in book 3.
Great sequel to the girl of fire and thorns. Elisa grows strongervand stronger as a queen and heroine. Bit more romance but still bittersweet leaving you wanting more...write fast Rae!
Couldn't put it down!
I liked this book so much more than the first one. I wasn't even sure I was going to read it after the first one, but I'm glad I did. Non stop action and beautiful romance.
