Kelsea Glynn is the heir to the throne of the Tearling, but she has never been anywhere near the throne. Kelsea has been raised by foster parents after her own mother (Queen Elyssa) was murdered for ruining her kingdom.
For all the years Kelsea has been away, her uncle had full control of the Tearling, but he is just a puppet of the Red Queen, ruler of the neighbouring realm Mortmesme. On Kelsea’s 19th birthday, the remnants of her mother’s guard arrive to bring her to the throne she belongs on.
This starts our story of the future Queen of the Tearling. Kelsea is to claim the throne and to overturn her mother’s legacy. And, most importantly, not to die while she wears the crown.
From the first page, the story grabs you and drags you along. It is practically impossible to stop with reading! This story got a gold of me from the first page, and it never let me go. I enjoyed this fantasy book quite a lot!
Johansen has the kind of writing style that keeps you interested even at points where there isn’t a lot happening in the story itself.
I have nothing but good words for the story Johansen created. It was so good! The book is for a bit more mature audience, if you look at certain elements.
Kelsea is also one of a kind, even though she sometimes acts as a typical teen. She is the queen of the Tearling, and she sometimes acts that way.
I don’t want to tell you to much about the book, so I’ll end it here!
I ended up rating the book 5 out of 5 stars!
