YOU GUYS! I am so completely sorry and full of apologies for being late on this. Apparently I am the worst at managing my time when I’ve got a weekend packed with social engagements. The struggle.

So, okay! Now we are done with The Girl Of Fire And Thorns and are now onto The Crown Of Embers. And thank goodness, because this book if it was a FRIENDS episode could be called “The One With All The Tension.” Okay, so the book opens up and there’s a big parade because Elisa bears the Godstone and is also a hero. But, Hector is all, a parade could be dangerous because he is a bodyguard expert pretty much. THEN an animagus shows up and it’s all WHOMP WHOMP sadface as he lights himself on fire and they go back home. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Once Elisa is home, Quorum is called and we get to go to the HALL OF SKULLS. Of course, douches be douches during the quorum meeting and there is insistence that Elisa find a husband. The king of these douches is General Luz-Manuel who downplays the fact that Elisa saved the nation and is now Queen Regent. He sucks is all you should really care about.

THEN someone tries to assassinate Elisa and it is all like, bro just stop. She has a godstone and bodyguards, do you honest to goodness think you can just kill her? In the immortal words of Danny Zucko ‘Ha ha don’t make me laugh’. (Grease is on Netflix, you are welcome.)

When Elisa comes to, she realizes there might be some damage.

A few chapters go by and THEN OMG ALONE TIME WITH HECTORRRRRR. Yo word. Best part so far.

General Luz-Manuel orders someone dead because he is actually the worst.

And then we end the readalong with another assassination attempt that fails because these assassins suck compared to Ismae and the girls of St. Mortain. Anyways! I think this week’s portion of the Reading Rae readalong was fairly awesome and I am so excited to get back into this book again.

About Rae Carson:

Rae Carson Info:

I write books about teens who must do brave things. I’m originally from California, but I now live in Arizona with my husband, who is the smartest and therefore sexiest man I know. My books tend to contain lots of adventure, a little magic and romance, and smart girls who make (mostly) smart choices. I especially love to write about questions I don’t know the answers to.
