Book Review: The Bitter Kingdom, by Rae Carson @raecarson

What an amazing ending to an absolutely fabulous series! The Bitter Kingdom provides excitement, danger, and romance, and ties up the story very nicely.

Elisa is on a quest to save Hector, but the journey is anything but easy. The group overcomes hardship on top of hardship as they make their way to the capital of their enemies, the Invierno. They do eventually get there, but rescuing Hector and escaping proves to be dangerous and requires great strength, and power, from Elisa. Storm has grown and changed too, which adds to the excitement. I don't want to give specifics, but let's just say the excitement never ends.

Then, we are still only about halfway through the book. Because now Elisa's kingdom is under attack, and they must hurry back to try to save everything they've ever known.

In addition to excitement and danger, there's romance. Perfect romance. Just take my word for it. And there's humor, too. Elisa hates horses which provides some, and there's a new character who adds to the humor as well as the drama.

It's best if I don't say too much more. The resolution is pretty perfect, in my opinion. And, if you've read Girl of Fire and Thorns and Crown of Embers, I'm sure you won't be disappointed in The Bitter Kingdom. I have many students who can't wait to get their hands on this one, and I'm so glad they won't be disappointed.
