I know, I’m behind on the times. I haven’t read The Queen of Tearling trilogy yet. But with the release of the final installment, The Fate of Tearling, just a few weeks ago (Nov 29) I’m ready to start. . The Queen of Tearling and The Invasion of Tearling both have a 4+ star average on Goodreads out of THOUSANDS of reviews, so if the synopsis didn’t peak my interest enough, THAT does. . There are so many books I want to read, but I have to admit that ratings and reviews like that really make me want to jump on the bandwagon sooner. . Where are the Tearling fans at? Without spoilers, comment some of the reasons you love this series! I’d love to hear your thoughts! . Synopsis of The Queen of Tearling: Young Kelsea Raleigh was raised in hiding after the death of her mother, Queen Elyssa, far from the intrigues of the royal Keep and in the care of two devoted servants who pledged their lives to protect her. Growing up in a cottage deep in the woods, Kelsea knows little of her kingdom's haunted past . . . or that its fate will soon rest in her hands. . Long ago, Kelsea's forefathers sailed away from a decaying world to establish a new land free of modern technology. Three hundred years later, this feudal society has divided into three fearful nations who pay duties to a fourth: the powerful Mortmesne, ruled by the cunning Red Queen. Now, on Kelsea's nineteenth birthday, the tattered remnants of the Queen's Guard—loyal soldiers who protect the throne—have appeared to escort the princess on a perilous journey to the capital to ascend to her rightful place as the new Queen of the Tearling. . Though born of royal blood and in possession of the Tear sapphire, a jewel of immense power and magic, Kelsea has never felt more uncertain of her ability to rule. But the shocking evil she discovers in the heart of her realm will precipitate an act of immense daring, throwing the entire kingdom into turmoil—and unleashing the Red Queen's vengeance. A cabal of enemies with an array of deadly weapons, from crimson-caped assassins to the darkest blood magic, plots to destroy her.
