Ember Queen (Ash Princess)
This is a powerful book about people who have lost so much but are the stronger for it. I have been a fan of this amazing series for a long time, so I was very excited to read this book and it did NOT disappoint. I was intrigued to the very end.
Theodosia is queen of Astrea, one of many countries conquered by the Kalovaxians. Astrea is special, though: there are mines that hold gems containing magic from the gods, one mine for each of the four classical elements. Theo has gathered troops to take back her country. She has already taken over the Fire Mine, and in this book she continues through the mines to the capital where she faces the Kaiserin. Theo was once friends with the Kaiserin, but now there is so much hate between them they can never go back. After the war, one of them will come away victorious and the other dead.
There are many things I love about this book. There is no way to name them all, but I’ll try. The characters seem like real people and are always consistent in their personalities. The book is very well written, and I enjoyed the inclusion of some Astrean words. I love the theme of perseverance in the story. This book is perfect for anyone who likes stories of magic, friendship, betrayal, love, hate, and most of all strength.
