The Girl of Fire and Thorns - Rae Carson Pros:* fun heroine* made me think of Spanish royalty* interesting conceptCons:* could not get the image of a troll doll out of my head* started with a bang, ended with a whimperOn one hand, I really want to laud Rae Carson for not insisting her YA novel be a trilogy. However, I really feel like each part could have been fleshed out to be a stand alone novel. There were several interesting characters whose background was rushed through to advance the story, but could have unfolded at a more natural pace with additional pages.
