The Girl of Fire and Thorns
Protagonist: Princess Elisa of Orovalle
Antagonist: The Inviernos, Godstone hunters
As the chosen one of God, she must fulfill the prophecy, if she doesn't die young. Most of the chosen do, for reasons unknown.
Theme: Even though being special has its rewards, it can also have its dangers.
"But my vision is too blurred with tears, my face too hot, because my sister has not embraced me that way since we were children in the nursery together."
I would recommend this book to anyone that loves Tamora Pierce and Gail Carson Levine. (Action, romance, mystery, all in one!)
