Book Review: The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, Book 1), By Rae Carson

As an infant, Princess Elise was chosen by God to be the bearer of a Godstone. One day she will complete a great act of service, but right now she is to be the young, plump bride of King Alejandro - a stranger. With war on the horizon, and heartache at home, Elise must overcome her fears and embrace what is possible if she is to become the savior that is needed.

The Girl of Fire and Thorns is a young adult princess story with some very unique twists.

It contains:
  • nudity (in non-sexual situations)
  • kissing
  • romantic interest in someone besides a spouse
  • throwing up
  • urination
  • over eating as an emotional outlet
  • killing
  • some gruesome images.

It also contains several religious ceremonies, and infliction of pain as a sacrament, but it does not contain profanity of any kind. Being overweight and the issues (physical, psychological, emotional and social) that come along with it are featured throughout this story.

Overall, the easy flow of writing, unique heroine, and unpredictable outcome made this a very engaging read.
