My Thoughts On Chapter 11-20

Warning – as always I can not promise a spoiler free review!! Proceed at your own risk!

Do you remember at the beginning of the read-along, when I was all about how Elisa was so strong and tough and never backed down? Well she is still that way, but my GOD, can the woman catch a break once in a while. Every single time things level out for her, BAM here's another issue, struggle, knife to the gut – what have you. I mean seriously she's the epitome of Murphy's Law at this point.

Other things that stood out to me as noteworthy in this section would be Belen. I hate him. I don't trust him yet, and I don't know if I'm going to. I don't know if I could no matter if Rae wrote him as a priest who cared for injured bunny rabbits. It's going to take a lot for me to trust in him again.

I think that's really all that warrants mentioning in this section,  I mean – well I suppose there was that one tiny little thing where Elisa and Hector KISS. Did you think that I was going to chat this section of the book up and not mention that? Here's me, when I read it finally – because man I had been holding out for this pretty much since the first time Hectors name was mentioned in the books!

The Crown Of Embers
The Girl Of Fire And Thorns #2
Author: Rae Carson

She does not know what awaits her at the enemy's gate.
Elisa is a hero.
She led her people to victory over a terrifying, sorcerous army. Her place as the country's ruler should be secure. But it isn't.
Her enemies come at her like ghosts in a dream, from foreign realms and even from within her own court. And her destiny as the chosen one has not yet been fulfilled.
To conquer the power she bears, once and for all, Elisa must follow a trial of long-forgotten—and forbidden—clues, from the deep, hidden catacombs of her own city to the treacherous seas. With her go a one-eyed spy, a traitor, and the man whom—despite everything—she is falling in love with.
If she's lucky, she will return from this journey. But there will be a cost.
