The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson, 410 pages, read by Leslie, on 01/16/2013

The Crown of Embers (Fire and Thorns, #2)

In the sequel to the acclaimed The Girl of Fire and Thorns, a seventeen-year-old princess turned war queen faces sorcery, adventure, untold power, and romance as she fulfills her epic destiny.

I enjoyed this second book of the series much more than the first.  While the first really focused on the religious aspect of the land and characters, this one focuses more on the political intrigue of a person in power.  And it is more difficult when that person is a 17 year old queen, who never imagined she would be in this position.  I cannot wait for the next book.
