Erika Johansen’s The Queen of the Tearling and The Invasion of the Tearling introduced readers to a wholly original heroine Kelsea Raleigh Glynn. Combining thrilling action and twisting plot turns with full blown magic, these books were a magnificent creative achievement, a feat of epic world-building, and some of the most original works of fiction to come around in years. Foreign rights were sold in 20 countries and Warner Bros. acquired the film rights, in conjunction with Harry Potter producer David Heyman and actress Emma Watson. Book 1 was a #1 IndieNext Pick and a LibraryReads Top 10 Title.  Book 2 was an instant New York Times bestseller, an IndieNext pick, a LibraryReads pick, and both books were widely praised.  

With THE FATE OF THE TEARLING, Johansen offers long-awaited resolution to the mysteries introduced in The Queen of the Tearling and The Invasion of the Tearling, bringing the series to a climactic and satisfying close.

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, trusted head of the Queen’s Guard, as Regent in her place. But the Mace will not rest until he and his men rescue their sovereign, imprisoned and imperiled in Mortmesne.  Now, as the suspenseful endgame begins, the fate of Queen Kelsea—and the Tearling itself—will finally be revealed.
