Queen-of-the-Tearling: This a brilliantly written fantasy novel, filled with adventure, magic, and romance. In Queen-of the-Tearling, a young princess, one Kelsea Glynn, must retrieve her mother’s throne by defeating the malevolent Red Queen and ultimately become a ruler. What Kelsea and the entire kingdom know, is that the Red Queen is a malevolent and extremely powerful witch, determined to wreck Kelsea and anyone who dares to stand in her way.
During her 19th birthday, Kelsea Glynn begins the treacherous and uncertain journey back to her kingdom and to the castle that belonged to her mother, with one objective in mind; ascend to power and put the Red Queen’s reign to an end. Apart from being plain, Kelsea is also quite serious, and just like her dead mother, Kelsea loves learning new things and reading as well.
While Kelsea may be sheltered and inexperience, she certainly is not vulnerable Around Kelsea’s neck lies Tearling Gemstone, a gemstone which holds immense magical powers. Accompanying Elsie back to the kingdom, is the queen’s guard, a group of brave guards, led by Lazarus. Lazarus is a dedicated and enigmatic soldier, who has sworn his allegiance to Kelsie.
To survive Kelsea will need these group of soldiers to defeat many enemies, who are going to use all kind of weapons available in their arsenal, ranging from the darkest of magic to crimson capped assassins. Despite having royal blood running in her veins, Kelsea feels nothing more, apart from the fact that she is an insecure girl and a child summoned to lead her people and a kingdom that she knows nothing about. What Erika Johansen eventually uncovers in the capital is going to change everything, as she has to confront horrors that she has ever imagined existed.
A small act of singular audaciousness throws Erika Johansen’s kingdom into a turmoil, followed by an attack on Mortmesne, the autocratic ruler of the neighboring kingdom. It is during this period that Kelsea will begin to find out, who among her servants, guards, and aristocrats, she can be able to trust fully. With that said, the Queen-of-the-Tearling is a wonderful journey of trial by fire and self-discovery, which will turn Kelsea into an icon if she survives the ordeal.
