Her throne awaits . . . if she can live long enough to take it. It was on her nineteenth birthday that the soldiers came for Kelsea Glynn. They’d come to escort her back to the place of her birth – and to ensure she survives long enough to be able to take possession of what is rightfully hers. But like many nineteen-year-olds, Kelsea is unruly, has high principles and believes she knows better than her elders. Unlike many nineteen-year-olds, she is about to inherit a kingdom that is on its knees – corrupt, debauched and dangerous. Kelsea will either become the most fearsome ruler the kingdom has ever known . . . or be dead within the week. Combining thrilling adventure and action, dark magic, mystery and romance, The Queen of the Tearling is the debut of a born storyteller blessed with a startling imagination.

Thank you to Transworld Digital for sending me a copy of this book to review. Firstly I have to say this book was so beautifully packaged that I didn’t want to open it.

I had heard so much about this book that part of me was scared to read it in case it didn’t live up to the hype. However my worry was soon gone once I started reading.

This book as a slow start but once you get through the first few chapters it becomes really hard to put down.

There is so much that happens in this book it’s hard to know where to start. It’s Kelsea’s 19th birthday and she’s being transported from the only life she knows back to the kingdom that should rightfully be hers.

Kelsea has a long and epic journey and when she finally returns she takes the kingdom by storm and decides she will not stand for any nonsense.

Fetch and Mace were my two favourite characters.

This book is set in a very different world to the one we live in but I really loved immersing myself in it.

I can’t wait to read the 2nd book and continue this story.

Lara Lington has always had an over-active imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional twenty-something young women don’t get visited by ghosts. Or do they? When the spirit of Lara’s great-aunt Sadie—a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance—mysteriously appears, she has one request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, because Sadie cannot rest without it. This was the second time I started this book. This time I […]
