Once every century, one person is chosen for greatness. But the prophecy is vague, and Elisa, always overshadowed by her accomplished older sister, has no idea why she was chosen or how she will fulfill the expectations. Her future is unknown and her potential is tremendous—even if she doesn’t realize it. A king asks her to save his troubled country. A savage enemy hunts her for its own—dead or alive. A revolutionary asks for her heart. And in the midst of ferocious battles and harsh quests, Elisa will find herself. She will find the strength she’s always possessed. She’ll find deep and abiding love. She’ll awaken the power that only she can control. And she’ll face those who want to rip all of it away. Lush, adventurous, and wrenching, The Girl of Fire And Thorns is the first in a trilogy for fans of Kristin Cashore’s Graceling and Tamora Pierce’s Tortall books. (Summary from the HarperCollins Catalog)Basically, I want to read The Girl of Fire and Thorns because the summary mention both Kristin Cashore's Graceling and Tamora Pierce's Tortall books. I'm hoping that Elisa will be as strong a character as Katsa, not in physical strength, but strong as in memorable and able to carry the story. Also, I love the dress the cover model is wearing!
