Waiting on Wednesday (13)

Elisa is the hero of her country. She led her people to victory against a terrifying enemy, and now she is their queen. But she is only seventeen years old. Her rivals may have simply retreated, choosing stealth over battle. And no one within her court trusts her-except Hector, the commander of the royal guard, and her companions. As the country begins to crumble beneath her and her enemies emerge from the shadows, Elisa will take another journey. With a one-eyed warrior, a loyal friend, an enemy defector, and the man she is falling in love with, Elisa crosses the ocean in search of the perilous, uncharted, and mythical source of the Godstone's power. That is not all she finds. A breathtaking, romantic, and dangerous second volume in the Fire and Thorns trilogy.
I thoroughly enjoyed the first book, Girl of Fire and Thorns and I've been looking forward to the second installment ever since I closed the covers on Fire and Thorns.  I read, enjoyed and reviewed the "Fire and Thorns" novella The Shadow Cats which only made to heighten my excitement! :) The Crown of Embers is set to release September 18, 2012 from Greenwillow Books.
