The Queen of the Tearling

(The Tearling Trilogy 1)

Kelsea Glynn is the sole heir to the throne of Tearling but has been raised in secret after her mother – a monarch as vain as she was foolish – 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 nineteenth 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, win 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...

The Queen of the Tearling

Diana, Thalia-Buchhandlung Wien

The world-building of this trilogy is over the top amazing, unique and complex. This series is filled with politics, history, oppression, violence, adventure, courage and hope. Romance is definitley in second place. Or third. Or fourth. And this is no Young Adult novel, but for adults, because it has some really hefty parts. But it is awesome! Kelsea is an amazing heroine, genuinly good-hearted, strong-willed, down to earth and she stands up for her beliefs uncrumbling. Maybe this book will leave you with questions. It certainly happened to me. Don't stop, but contuine to read the whole trilogy, because the way these books unraveled was breathtaking.

The right kind of wrong
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Ansbach am 04.06.2015

Prinzessinnen sind lieblich, zart und hilflos. So lehren es uns die Märchen, aber diese Prinzessin hat nicht vor, sich diesen Regel zu unterwerfen. Eine liebevoll gestaltete Geschichte mit einer ordentlichen Portion Fantasie darüber, wer man sein kann, wenn man nur an sich und andere glaubt.
