The final installment of The Queen of the Tearling series, The Fate of the Tearling, is publishing today!!! This is definitely a Terrific Tuesday for me! I fell in love with this series when I read The Invasion of the Tearling. I will be honest, I loved the cover and the synopsis sounded intriguing. Once I started reading I fell in love with the writing style! It was an emotional rollercoaster and the story just came alive for me. The second installment in this series was no disappointment and that is also how I know I will love this next novel.
Am I disappointed that this series is coming to an end? No, I am desperate to know what happens to the people of the Tearling. I can not wait to (hopefully) finally see what Kelsea’s connection to Lily is. I have to know! What is going to happen while Kelsea is a prisoner in Mortmesne? So many questions, I need this book!! Ha ha ha, can’t wait!!
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.
