The Crown of Embers, by Rae Carson

crownJessica shares this review:

After a tough and lengthy battle against the Inviernos in book one, The Girl of Fire and Thorns, we would have thought Queen Elisa would finally have time to rebuild her kingdom and spend time with the people of her land. But alas, it is not so. Despite her hard earned, though apparently short-lived victory, Elisa now not only faces an external enemy but an internal one as well. Several of her Quorum members are showing concern regarding her decisions and seemingly making their own without her consent. Her personal taster has fallen dead and around every corner are suitors wishing to marry and align their kingdoms. Not to mention her people are beginning to riot against tax increases. What is a seventeen year old Queen, newly widowed and still the bearer of a Godstone to do? Set off on another adventure of course! With trusty Lord Hector, Mara, Ximena and a few new friends by her side, Elisa must follow the path that leads her towards her destiny and hopefully help her secure the power and strength she will need to rule. And yet, amongst all the chaos, Elisa fears she may be falling deeply and desperately in loveā€¦
