About Author:

Rae Carson

I write books about teens who must do brave things I m originally from California, but I now live in Arizona with my husband, who is the smartest and therefore sexiest man I know My books tend to contain lots of adventure, a little magic and romance, and smart girls who make mostly smart choices I especially love to write about questions I don t know the answers to.



Comments The Shattered Mountain

  • Katerina Kondrenko

    9 out of 10ревью на русском/review in russianThis is a story about Mara, her last day in a village she came from, her way to the rebellion camp, her losses and transformation. I started to like Mara in the second book of this series, but the short-story gave me so much more of this character, I would love to see her as MC *le sigh*At the first pages I wasn't into this bonus (firstly, I knew about one important death; and secondly, I didn't like the world of Fire and Thorns, all its [...]

    I'm sorry did I ask for that pain? I thought these novellas would be quick fun reads about other people in this world. Instead you make me love these children you hurt, love Julio and take him from me, like what is this torture? Not cool but also so amazing. My favorite of the mini stories so far.


  • Ferdy

    Mara's novella, quite liked this one. The plot wasn't all that gripping but the characters made up for that. Mara was great, her relationship with Julio and the children she was helping were written well considering how short the story was.The novella didn't really add anything all that necessary to the series overall but it was nice to get some background and insight into Mara and her past, she was one of the best characters in the series.


  • Jenn

    Oh this novella broke my heart.Here we meet Mara, who lives with her father in their tiny village. Not happy with her life - her abusive father the biggest reason - she longs for the day she can run away with her love, Julio. However, when that day comes, her village is attacked by Inviernos and Mara barely escapes and now finds herself in charge of a group of recently orphaned children.This novella just didn't let up. From the fires, to floods, to life threatening injuries, everything was throw [...]


  • Nadine Jones

    This is one of three prequels to The Girl of Fire and Thorns. The other two are best read after the main book, but I think this might be a good one to read BEFORE the main book (although, chronologically, this takes place at the same time as the events in the first half of GoFaT). This is the story of Mara, and how she joins the rebellion. Her story was really really sad, but it ends on a hopeful note.


  • Alaina Meserole

    I absolutely loved this novella. Mara seems very interesting and I feel like she's going to become a huge bad ass. (view spoiler)[It kind of sucks major ass that she lost the love of her life, Julio. But I'm so happy that she saved a bunch of kids and found the rebellion camp. (hide spoiler)] I also found it interesting that Princess Elisa is mentioned, just briefly towards the end, in this novella. I have a feeling I'm going to get more about her. I can't wait to read the next novella.

    So just like The Shadow Cats I really enjoyed this novella. It pulls you right in and you quickly grow to love Mara and Julio, and their ragtag bunch of munchkins as they trek to safety. You're rooting for them all to make it as they struggle through hunger, injuries, being hunted by Inviernos, and nature's wrath. There is definitely a moment that gets you all teared up, but then in the next moment you're smiling. It plays with your emotions a bit, but it's a great little read. And just like in [...]

    i always wondered what happened to mara before she met the princess


  • B.A. Wilson

    This novella explains how Mara became part of the revolution. Reading through these novellas has made me excited to go back and reread book one and finish the trilogy. Pages: 106


  • VictoriaC_E1

    The Shattered Mountain by Rae Carson is a novella (sort-of prequel) to the Fire and Thorns trilogy (so I recommend you read that first). This book is centred around Mara, one of the ladies-in-waiting of the protagonist of the Fire and Thorns trilogy, and how her plans to escape from her abusive father with her boyfriend get interrupted when her village is burned down by animagi (evil magicians of sorts, for those of you who haven't read the Fire and Thorns series). But Mara survives, and she mus [...]

    I'm close to the end of this book and I don't want to stop reading it. Mara's father has a strong connection with Tobias's father, Marcus, in the series Divergent. Both of them seem to be strongly respected in their society but violently abuse their children at home. While reading this, I was really amazed that they were so alike in the way that Mara and Tobias were both deeply affected by how violent their fathers were that they wanted to get away from home.

    3.5 StarsStyle and LanguageThis short story is the second of the three before the actual novel The Girl of Fire and Thorns and it is about Mara.Mara has to flee her home, not only because of her abusive father, but also because her small village was put under fire of her enemy. Together with a group of little children she flees into the mountain and has to face a lot of dangerous situations.Although the plot has a lot of action and is very bloody and contains a lot of bravery as well, it wasn´t [...]

It's amazing how this little tiny novella could be soo much better and hold so much more emotion than some of the novels I've read. (view spoiler)[And Julio, oh Julio my heart broke into a million tiny pieces! :'( I hope she fi [...]


  • Bookbuyer

    I really liked this novella. It stood by itself so which not all novellas do. I felt bad for Mara throughout the story. First her father is a royal douchebag and then she loses Julio!! I can't believe how bad her short life has been so far. I wonder if her mother died as well since there was no mention of her?The children were amazing. I can't believe they all made it alive with mostly minimal injury. My favorite was little Marlin. She was so brave!I'm intruiged by the rebels and the concept of [...]


  • Jessica ❁ ➳ Silverbow ➳ ❁ Rabid Reads

    From Mara's POV. This is the story of how her village was destroyed, and how she came to join the rebels. It really fleshes her out as a character, but it is not a happy story.Again, a really good novella.


  • Maggie ☘ (Reader in Wonderland)

    “Hope. Such a dangerous thing.”This is a short story about Mara's hard journey from her village attacked by Inviernos, throughout the Shattered Mountain and into the Rebel camp. Be warned that this is not a happy story. It actually made me tear up several times. Highly recommended for fans of Fire and Thorns.Quotes:“In the same way that the best lies have an element of truth, maybe evil is made all the more powerful when it is accompanied by the startling presence of grace.”“We'll carr [...]

    My Review: 7 - Good ReadWhile reading my latest Star Wars pick, I realized I wouldn't finish it in time for my Wednesday flash review post. So in order to ensure I would have at least TWO reviews for you all today, I decided to put the SW novel aside and pull up Carson's latest novella on my Kindle. The Shattered Mountain takes place in the Girl of Fire and Thorns world, and in many ways, could be considered a prequel to the events in The Girl of Fire and Thorns. However, I don't feel this story [...]


  • Heather

    I loved this. It wasn't entirely "necessary" to the seriesBUT was wonderful and beautiful to get inside Mara's mind and really understand her better. She was one of my favorite characters from Crown of Embers so deeper insight into her character was really awesome. I am so looking forward to The Bitter Kingdomd the other little tidbit we'll be getting this summer! =)


  • Perla The IB Teen Book Blogger

    I didn't know if I would fall for Mara outside of her life alongside Elisa. I should know better than to doubt in Rae Carson's ability to suck me in and not let me go until THE END. I have come to understand that not every story must be about Hector- but I want them to be.


  • Laura

    It was so fun to read Mara's backstory and to gain a little more insight into why she is who she is. It was a quick read, and definitely left me wanting more!


  • Milly

    Mara's story


  • Lady Flo

    First I decided to give 3 or 4 stars, but then thought it deserves 5)Sounds like more adventure yet to come ^_^


  • Ilana

    Mara has long since been a key character in the entire series and it's her turn to have a novella - to give us a sense of where her story began and how strong she truly is.  We knew her story before this novella - about how she and a boy named Julio had fallen in love and how she had plans to leave her village to be with him, but of course that all goes awry when the Inviernos come and attack her village.  So this is the story of her escape with a group of children and how they find the rebell [...]


  • Limecello

    Oh this short story. It broke my heart. I teared up.Mara. Darling girl - I'm glad she found such a friend in Elisa, and is such a friend to Elisa.What an incredible, strong, tragic woman.[I am not sure "?" why she won't marry Belan interesting how things went full circle THERE] but oh god this story.C+/B-


  • Amy

    The writing is flawless, as always with Rae Carson. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I'd read it closer to The Girl of Fire and Thorns.


  • Karin Cleaves

    Good fill inIt's good to read a bit on the origin of Mara. That on problem with lots is books. Characters we like but know little about.


  • Emily

    I actually really enjoyed learning more about Mara.


  • Ashlyn

    3.5 stars


  • Timothy Skilton

    All these short tales are worth reading if you are a fan of the trilogy. Each one adds to the main trilogy/world, develops a major character, and offers insight into the plot line. And each is a nice stand alone story. I love it.


  • Christopher

    Was okay. Pretty standard "on the run" kind of story. Well written.
