(The Tearling Trilogy 3)
The breathtaking concluding volume in Erika Johansen's thrilling, acclaimed and internationally bestselling 'Tearling' trilogy.
Kelsea Glynn returns as this unforgettable trilogy full of magic and adventure is drawn to a thrilling close.
Since ascending to the throne, Kelsea Glynn has grown into a powerful monarch and a visionary leader.
But in her quest to end corruption and restore justice within the Tearling, she has made many enemies. Chief amongst them is the evil and feared Red Queen, who now holds Kelsea – and her magical sapphires – captive in her castle in Mortmesne, a deal brokered to protect the Tearling from a Mort invasion.
But the Tearling needs its Queen, and the Mace, head of Kelsea’s personal guards, will not rest until he and his men rescue their sovereign from her prison.
Now it is time for the fate of Queen Kelsea – and the Tearling itself – to be revealed . . .
“An unputdownable, epic conclusion filled with unexpected twists. You’ll want to cancel all plans as this gripping adventure is easy to swallow in one sitting.”
“Fantasy fans will flock to this electrifying conclusion to the best-selling Tearling trilogy.”
“Kelsea flourishes alongside the other female characters at the center of the novel: These are powerful, determined women who work hard to accomplish their goals even as their mistakes haunt them. Johansen doesn’t punish them for these mistakes; she allows them to grow, leading to a well-earned ending.”
“A thrilling conclusion to a fantastic trilogy.”
“Johansen has consistently taken huge narrative risks with this series, which started as a traditional fantasy and then began incorporating glimpses of a dystopian alternate world... richly developed characters who are never boring black and white, and villains who are as fascinating as the heroes . . . outstanding.”
“Genuinely subversive: social commentary in the guise of supernatural adventure.”
“Johansen creates her most sweeping vision of Kelsea and her world yet . . . political machinations and explosive revelations . . . the stunning ending makes a bold statement about sacrifice and rebirth. Astonishing.”
