Crown of Embers by Rae Carson

Synopsis (from goodreads.com):
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.

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.

Jillian’s Review:

I've been looking forward to this one since I read The Girl of Fire and Thorns last year and The Crown of Embers did not disappoint!

This is a really great story, with a more magical element, awesome characters and tons of action... and even some romance. I wasn't happy how weak Elisa was after winning a war in the previous story, but it worked for the most part.

The only negative is that I CAN NOT WAIT for book three and yet, I have to. :(
