“Katniss Everdeen, you have competition.”—Entertainment Weekly
The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Tearling trilogy.
In less than a year, Kelsea Glynn has transformed from a gawky teenager into a powerful monarch. As she has come into her own as the Queen of the Tearling, the headstrong, visionary leader has also transformed her realm. In her quest to end corruption and restore justice, she has made many enemies—including the evil Red Queen, her fiercest rival, who has set her armies against the Tear.
To protect her people from a devastating invasion, Kelsea did the unthinkable—she gave herself and her magical sapphires to her enemy—and named the Mace, the trusted head of her personal guards, regent in her place. But the Mace will not rest until he and his men rescue their sovereign, imprisoned in Mortmesne.
Now, as the suspenseful endgame begins, the fate of Queen Kelsea—and the Tearling itself—will finally be revealed.
I enjoy a great epic fantasy where the main character rises above their situation and is triumphant. Queen Kelsea does just that with the help of the Tear Sapphires, her parentage and her wit.
In this last installment we find Queen Kelsea in Mortmesne as a prisoner to the Red Queen (or rather Crimson Lady as Kelsea calls her.) She needs to find her way back to the Tearling and save her realm. BUT HOW! During her time in the dungeons she figures out ways to be successful and sees some of the errors of her ways.
I love seeing how the secondary characters grow and improve within the pages of this last novel. Of course the ending is bittersweet. Why? Well because its the last book in the trilogy but also because… Read it! You will see…
5 Stars goes to Erika Johansen!! I look forward to more of your work!!
