The Girl of Fire and Thorns
The Girl of Fire and Thorns was a great start to the fall read, I enjoyed it very much. Elisa is the chosen one who bares the Godstone, and at the age of 16 is forced to marry. The Invierne , who also posses the other Godstones have been bring war to her new home. But, when Elisa is kidnapped she has no choice, but to help the people that have taken her win the war that they have been facing. Which, the king himself had no clue they have been fighting their own wars for years. In this twisting and spellbinding book Elisa discovers what it is like to be loved, and to have the power to do good, but at what cost does the good come at?
Excerpt from Goodreads:
Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.
Elisa is the chosen one.
But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can't see how she ever will.
Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.
And he's not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people's savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.
Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.
Most of the chosen do.
