A short digital-only novella set in the world of The Girl of Fire and Thorns. While Princess Elisa was being forced across the desert by a band of rebel kidnappers, her future handmaiden, Mara, was fighting for survival as enemy sorcerers decimated the countryside. This is Mara’s story. 

 On the outskirts of Joya d’Arena, small villages fight for survival against the onslaught of sorcerers and raiders. Mara’s village has been safe—so far—but Mara decides to escape, anyway. Escape from her harsh, abusive father. Escape with her first love. But when their plans fall on the same day that the animagi burn the village to the ground, Mara faces losses that could destroy her. She’s a survivor, though. She is going to make it through the mountains, and she is going to protect the refugees following her. Because there’s a rumored safe haven . . . and some say they have found the Chosen One. Told from Mara’s point-of-view, The Shattered Mountain is an alternate perspective of the beginning of the acclaimed The Girl of Fire and Thorns.

 A short digital-only novella set in the world of Rae Carson’s acclaimed The Girl of Fire and Thorns. 

 This short novella features the characters and world of Rae Carson’s epic fantasies The Girl of Fire and Thorns and The Crown of Embers. A must-read for fans eagerly awaiting the final volume of the trilogy.

I think I've read The Girl of Fire and Thorns first two books of the trilogy at least four times, and all the Hector parts closer to six or seven. So it's safe to say that I'm going to gorge myself on these as soon as humanly possible. While I want EVERYTHING I read about this series be centered around my love of Hector and my admiration of Elisa. I know in my bones that the second, and as yet unnamed, novella will NOT be about Hector (this is me crying), but I will love every word. The Girl of Fire and Thorns is one of those impactful and significant series that I hold dear to my soul, I can't wait to add these to the collection.
