Rae Carson is a Young Adult writer who writes books about heroic young adults or teens. The Fire and Thorns series is a Fantasy set in another world similar to Earth. It follows Elisa who is a second born princess of her nation who is forced to marry another nation’s king, not only for alliance but to hide her from those who would seek to harm her. She was chosen by God to be the bearer of the godstone. Once every hundred years, someone is chosen to bear the godstone. Each bearer has an unknown destiny to fulfill. But there are forces from another nation who are against her and would like to see her fail.
This is a must-read adventure story. I was left hungry for more at the end of the trilogy. I will definitely be reading more from this author.
