Lucero-Elisa de Riqueza, princess of Orovalle, is being married off to King Alejandro de Vega. There is something special about Elisa; she has a godstone in her navel. A godstone is a stone which vibrates if Elisa prays, goes ice cold if there’s danger around, goes hot if she is angry, and so forth. A godstone is given to someone if they are chosen to do a special act of service by God. Elisa goes back with her new husband to his country, which is on the brink of war. Can she stop the war with her godstone? Or help win it?
I thought The Girl of Fire and Thorns was an okay book. Honestly, I thought it would be better from both the back and the title, but it wasn’t too bad. The storyline was always moving, which was good, but I found that I got confused with a few things such as the characters’ names, and the monarchy and religion which was made up, meaning I had to learn them.
