Waiting on Wednesday [#24]

Hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
The Crown of Embers by RAE CARSON




In the sequel to the acclaimed The Girl of Fire and Thorns, a seventeen-year-old princess turned war queen faces sorcery, adventure, untold power, and romance as she fulfills her epic destiny.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 (goodreads).
Hardcover, 410 pages
Expected publication: September 18th 2012 by Greenwillow Books

Why I'm Waiting: 

Girl of Fire and Thorn was literary perfection. Amazing characters, intriguing plot, beautiful and expansive word, it's anything a fantasy lover would want. Now comes the sequel which I'm all sorts of giddy about. Is it  bad that still rooting for Humberto? Because I am. >.>
