All good things must come to an end, and The Bitter Kingdom is the perfect ending to an amazing series. I thoroughly enjoyed Elisa's journey from timid princess to fierce warrior queen! The characters were so well developed that after I read the last page I immediately began to miss them! The Fire and Thorns series is such a breath of fresh air, and there is nothing I can add to the well deserved praise this series has already received. I'm looking forward to Carson's next series!
