9780062290380: The Queen of the Tearling

Kelsea Glynn is the sole heir to the throne of Tearling but has been raised in secret by foster parents after her mother - Queen Elyssa, as vain as she was stupid - was murdered for ruining her kingdom. For 18 years, the Tearling has been ruled by Kelsea's uncle in the role of Regent however he is but the debauched puppet of the Red Queen, the sorceress-tyrant of neighbouring realm of Mortmesme. On Kelsea's 19th birthday, the tattered remnants of her mother's guard - each pledged to defend the queen to the death - arrive to bring this most un-regal young woman out of hiding...And so begins her journey back to her kingdom's heart, to claim the throne, earn the loyalty of her people, overturn her mother's legacy and redeem the Tearling from the forces of corruption and dark magic that are threatening to destroy it. But Kelsea's story is not just about her learning the true nature of her inheritance - it's about a heroine who must learn to acknowledge and live with the realities of coming of age in all its insecurities and attractions, alongside the ethical dilemmas of ruling justly and fairly while simply trying to stay alive...

Product Description:

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.

Review:

"I couldn't put the bloody thing down. It would be fair to say I became obsessed with the role and the book" -- EMMA WATSON "Did you love The Hunger Games? Partial to an episode of Game of Thrones? Then you're going to want to dive straight in to this new fantasy ... brilliantly imagined and captivatingly written" HEAT "An assured and confident debut ... featuring a strong female lead and a well-realised far-future post-apocalyptic world" INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY "Like Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games meets Pulp Fiction" DAILY MAIL "Destined to be a fantasy classic. Johansen's writing is assured, confident and thrilling. I can't wait for the next book." AMY McCULLOCH, author of The Oathbreaker's Shadow
