News: Fire and Thorns Re-Release Date

“This summer, get some fire and thorns!”

Author: Rae Carson

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Age: YA+

Released: 23rd August 2012 (UK version)

Picking up a new series is always daunting, but surely there are some chosen specifics for how you can tell you’ll enjoy something? Well, I guess with me it’s Arabian atmosphere, and fantasy girls. It’s the one thing that I get sucked in with every time. I just can’t help myself!

Now, this book has already been released in the US under the name ‘A Girl of Fire and Thorns’. For some reason, that name has been changed to ‘Fire and Thorns’. There were some copies released in 2011, which have run out, which is why it’s being reprinted. Good thing too, this books sounds perfect for an end of summer read!


Princess Elisa is a disappointment to her people. Although she bears the Godstone in her navel, a sign that she has been chosen for an act of heroism, they see her as lazy and useless and fat. On her sixteenth birthday, she is bartered off in royal marriage and shipped away to a kingdom in turmoil, where her much-older-and extremely beautiful-husband refuses to acknowledge her as his wife. Devastated, Elisa decides to take charge of her fate and learn what it means to bear the Godstone. As an invading army threatens to destroy her new home, and everyone at court manoeuvres to take advantage of the young princess, Elisa becomes convinced that, not only is her own life in danger, the whole world needs saving. But how can a young girl who has never ridden horseback, never played the game of politics, and never attained the love of a man save the world? Elisa can’t be sure, but she must try to uncover the Godstone’s secret history before the enemy steals the destiny nestled in her core.
