Waiting on Wednesday # 88 - The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Elisa is the hero of her country. She led her people to victory against a terrifying enemy, and now she is their queen. But she is only seventeen years old. Her rivals may have simply retreated, choosing stealth over battle. And no one within her court trusts her-except Hector, the commander of the royal guard, and her companions. As the country begins to crumble beneath her and her enemies emerge from the shadows, Elisa will take another journey. With a one-eyed warrior, a loyal friend, an enemy defector, and the man she is falling in love with, Elisa crosses the ocean in search of the perilous, uncharted, and mythical source of the Godstone’s power. That is not all she finds.

A breathtaking, romantic, and dangerous second volume in the Fire and Thorns trilogy.

I loved the first book, The Girl of Fire and Thorns, so I can't wait to read this one! :)


  1. I have The Girl of Fire and Thorns on my TBR list - and didn't even now it was part of a series!

  2. I haven't heard of this one. Looks like a good pick.

  3. I haven't read the first one but heard a lot of good things about it. I think I'll read it. Thank you for sharing this. :)

    PS: I've got a giveaway that ends March 14th!

  4. I haven't read this series but I like the cover! When I read the summary it sort of reminded me of The Wizard of Oz (the part about the quest and who she goes with) for some odd reason!
