Mini Review | The Girl of Fire and Thorns (The Girl of Fire and Thorns, #1) by Rae Carson

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.
I can't decide how to describe The Girl of Fire and Thorns. It was definitely different. I liked the fairytale portion of it and Elisa was an awesome character. She starts out as this insecure girl, not liking her size and doubting that she can actually be a great queen. She grows so much throughout the book as she learns about herself and her abilities. What I didn't like about the book was that it was a bit lengthy and had a lot of info that I considered to be irrelevant. All in all, The Girl of Fire and Thorns was a nice book with a wonderful main character and seems to have inspiring prospects for the future book.

It sounds like one of those reads where the character was a good character but the story line lacked depth. happy reading.
