Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
The story of Elisa is not always a happy one but it’s a story of one girl journey to find the faith that she needs as the bearer of the godstone.
As a character Elisa is different for the normal sort you read about normally the main characters are perfected and loveable, Elisa is different yes she is special but she is not drop dead beautiful but that does not matter the author makes it clear that you DONT! Have to be beautiful to do great things. Elisa is smart and does not think she is better than anyone else you love Elis because she tells us girls that no matter what you look like just have the faith and be who you are, be strong.
There were a lot of other amazing characters in the book that you will love but I had a MASSIVE! Crush on lord Hector from the moment he stepped into the book I was in love. While at times he can be hard you felt like he would also look after you and love you no matter what.
The story was so will written it eased you right into this amazing fantasy world with perfection. I found that within just ten pages I was completely in love with the book. There was so much to like everything was explained and beautiful detailed in such a way that you felt like you were in the book to.
The book to me really was watching Elisa grow from a shy uneasy girl to a warrior like character that would give her life for others.
While I have read many Fantasy books from the lighter side to the epic Fantasy I have to say out of them all this is the best Fantasy book I have ever read. It lingers in your mind even after the book ends I’m tingling to read more from this one of a kind author.
I give this book 5 stars go out buy the book and prepare to be stunned and amazed
Crown of Embers by Rae CarsonSo pleased I get this book I ended up rereading book one then went straight into book two..wow I did not think book two could ever been as good as the first book but I was wrong. The storyline was strong and exciting and simply magical the characters are wonderful and it's heart warming to read about them. I was a emotional reck while reading the books I was glued to every word and was whole heartedly willing Elisa to carry on and to be strong. The ending had me in tears and my brain is in a state of shock needing to know what will happen next!!
5 stars to both books
