Description

Debut author Rae Carson has won rave reviews and been named a Publishers Weekly Flying Start author for The Girl of Fire and Thorns. The first of a trilogy, Carson's scintillating novel centers on Elisa, a princess who learns she is the once-a-century ''chosen one'' and the secret wife of a king with a troubled land. As seething enemies begin to circle and people she's never met expect her to be their savior, Elisa fears for her very life- especially since chosen ones have a habit of dying young. ''A smart, complex fantasy with stellar characters a page-turner with broad appeal.''- Publishers Weekly, starred review

Professional reviews

"Jennifer Ikeda's presentation of Elisa transforms with the metamorphosis of this spoiled and unhappy princess. Elisa was born with the godstone embedded in her navel and is thus marked as the one person in the century who is destined to do great deeds for her people. When she is married off to a man in a neighboring kingdom for political ends, her pampered life ends. As Elisa tells her story, Ikeda infuses her with wonder and a range of conflicting emotions but also with an underlying strength that makes her transformation believable. She is at one moment a na•ve, pampered princess and the next a strong queen facing mortal danger with assurance and conviction. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
