The Crown Of Embers by Rae Carson | Readalong Chapters 11-20 #ReadingRae

CE_Week5

Good morning everyone! So, okay, yes I am typing this in the morning it is due just like in high school and college – because I do my best work under pressure and also still procrastinate like crazy.

So, we left off with a failed assassination attempt thus proving it is not good to be the Queen like it is good to be the King. Elisa is trying to find out who tried to poison her and how. It turns out that it was dried and powdered duerma berries – same as those leaves that were used to knock her out in the first book, it is almost like coming full circle I KNOW. Anyways, Elisa has to have the person who did it punished which sucks, but that’s kind of her job.

Then Elisa has concerns about Rosario – given that his parents are dead and she’s only like 16 and has to raise him. Still, she’s doing her best. She also does some exercises with Hector.

THEN THE BEST PART OF THE BOOK! At least for me — when Hector gives her the crown which he and a few of the other guard raised the money to make. It is beautiful and perfect and I love this part. The crown is made of shattered godstones and it is just so fitting and apt and hello you guys Hector is the best ever. OH AND THIS HAPPENS ON DELIVERANCE DAY. And Elisa is at a ball with some suitors. They all mostly suck because I am team Hector.

Then, somehow, it ends up being that Elisa’s sister, Alodia, is to marry Hector, which wtf. We are not about to have that you guys. Some more things happen.

AND THEN FINALLY Elisa and Hector end up on a boat, kidnapped.

Until next week!

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.
