Book Review: The Girl of Fire and Thorns

Have you felt it yet?

The joy that comes from reading a very compelling story, the rush of not knowing what will happen to a character you are so vested in? That is exactly what awaits you when you start this series. 

The Girl of Fire and Thorns is one book you should definitely read and I promise, you won’t be disappointed by what you encounter. Elisa’s world is dangerous, exciting and most of all entirely your imagination and if you are as creative and as imaginative as Rae Carson, you will be blown away. This book follows the story of a girl who has always been expected to be great but didn’t feel she was all that and it follows her journey to achieving that greatness all on her own without anyone to hold her hand along the way. She was forced into a situation she didn’t exactly understand or wanted without her knowledge which I know most people can relate to and expected to thrive despite the fact that she wasn’t even told why and how she should.

The pressure mounted on Elisa is so great apart from the fact that she was overweight and considered herself less of a person. She did not only have to prove that she was adequate but also had to get people to see past her inadequacies as well. Always in the shadow of her elder sister who was more of a ruler than she was or so she thought and more beautiful to boot but as the book progresses, we see that she wasn’t only very strategic and strong but also really beautiful unlike how she was previously described.

Her love life is what you would expect a writer like Sarah J Maas to write and Rae perfectly executed the story to it’s highest degree. From her not-so-existent story with Alejandro to her brief true love with Humberto then her final stop with Hector, I mean the girl was on fire. With every relationship, she grew as a person and as a leader and also a girl who just wanted to be loved unconditionally and who wouldn’t want that.

And yeah, it is all about girl power as you will see in the final installation of the series. The book had a very wonderful end too although not all sunshine and rainbows but well enough as life itself is.

P.S: If you’ve read the book and you want your views read, send me your reviews and I will post for you (
