The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson
I was a bit disappointed with this book. After being a strong leader of a rebel group, Elisa becomes a weak queen. I found that a bit annoying although I realize that she is only 17 years old. She struggles to rule her country and learns more about the godstone and goes on a quest to find it's source of power. A romance blooms betweeh Elisa and Hector, who goes on the quest with her and others. There will be another book in the series since this one ends with a cliffhanger. I did enjoy the book even though Elisa seemed a bit to wimpy as a queen.
