Red was an orphan and a slave before Empress Elisa found her, freed her, and made her her ward. Now, Red is about to be officially adopted into the royal family in front of the whole court. Red's adoption requires a council vote, but the royal family is certain that they have the votes. When something goes wrong and the adoption is rejected, Red asks instead to join the Royal Guard. Elisa and her consort Hector are scheduled to go on a journey, leaving Prince Rosario in charge. While they are away, Red begins to notice some strange things about what's happening in the palace, and in the training of the new Guard recruits. Is there a traitor lurking in the shadows?

It's been years since I read the first three books in the Fire & Thorns series, and I was concerned that I would have forgotten too much about the previous books, but this book stands on its own fairly well. Carson's writing is strong, and as with the previous books, she doesn't pull her punches. In reading about Red's experiences as the only female Guard recruit, I couldn't help think of Tamora Peirce's Song of the Lioness and Protector of the Small quartets, so if you enjoyed those stories, you might like this one. I'd recommend reading the whole series, just because they are so good, but this book could be read as a stand-alone.

Disfruté mucho de este libro, pues mezcla un poco de fantasía con novela histórica. Es ameno de leer y te engancha desde los primeros capítulos. A los personajes les coges cariño rápido y la trama está muy interesante. En resumen, Leah es una chica que puede sentir el oro, y nos debemos situar en 1848, Norteamérica, y a tener en cuenta la fiebre del oro. Por esto mismo, el tío de Leah mata a su hermano y mujer (padres de la protagonista) para obtener la custodia de la joven, pero ella escapa hacia California junto con Jackson y un grupo más de personas. En el viaje se verán envueltos en sabotajes y otro tipo de problemas que mantendrá al lector completamente intrigado. Sin duda una de las mejores lecturas que encontré en 2022.… (mere)

I sucked this one down so fast, it never made it to my Currently reading list. Much like the 1st one, I love Lee's inner voice. I can't wait for the last of this trilogy.

This was a really good book that I am glad I finally picked up. I think the only reason that I haven't picked it up before (despite the great ratings) was because the synopsis is weak---really weak.

Most of the faith-based fantasy that I've read has been a thinly disguised way to deliver a 'god-is-good-and-wants-you-to-do-the-right-thing' message. This was more a story about self-discovery and growth. And Thank You Rae Carson for a unique heroine--at the end of the book, I still wasn't sure if she is plain, beautiful or striking--because that had NOTHING to do with the story--nice touch.

I eagerly look forward to the next book in the series.
