The thrilling conclusion to the 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.
Oh, wow, this book was utterly fantastic! I don't know how I manged to put off reading this book for so long! It was just so freaking fabulous! I devoured the first two books, and I did the same with this one, it was a perfect and satisfying ending to the trilogy!
I have to start off with, I read the ending before I was even a page in. I think I read it first, and then I didn't make time to read the whole book until the 17th. So I knew, the whole time, how things were going to end. And yeah, it was just so freaking great to watch things come together!
Mace held several secrets in this book that were revealed in this book! One, her father, we knew that he held the knowledge, but he wouldn't get it to Kelsea. But the other, which was pretty big, and resonated well with the ending, that was kinda a shocker! I wasn't expecting it!
We learn more about the Fetch and Row Finn. And yeah, there's guilt and betrayal in there. But it was great to see them when they were young, when things were just going wrong. I really enjoyed being in Katie's head because it gave us a look at the beginnings of the Tearling when it was just a town! Loved it! And another thing that worked well with the ending, because her experiences built her towards what happened! So wonderful to read!
In the end, the threat isn't what it seemed in the first book. But of many things, of Row Finn and his children, and the attitudes of people-of some people being better than others, of not helping your fellow man. Yeah.
I love and almost kinda hate the ending! Everything came together so well, and that was really great! But then it almost seems like everything was pointless-but it wasn't because if those things hadn't happened, this ending couldn't have been reached. If that makes any sense!
Loved this book so much, and I can't wait for the movie of the first book, and more books by Erika Johansen!
