The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times best-selling Tearling trilogy.
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, the trusted head of her personal guards, regent in her place. But the Mace will not rest until he and his men rescue their sovereign, imprisoned in Mortmesne.
Now, as the suspenseful endgame begins, the fate of Queen Kelsea - and the Tearling itself - will finally be revealed.

I was enjoying the trilogy but was disappointed in how it ended. It was building up to something and it just became quite generic at the end.
This is a great book, book 3 in the series. Loving the time lag story line, the story and the characters.
Changes in narrator between books is irritating and distracting but when the accent of the characters change dramatically between books, this is incredibly frustrating and spoiled my experience. E.g. William Tear goes from sophisticated, well spoken gentleman to Dorset farmer between book 2 and 3 - sort it out!!!
I was so excited to listen to this book! I loved how it got darker and how the characters developed but the ending... I did like how it wasn't the typical 'happy ending' but I do feel like the ending was a bit rushed. Would definitely love another book, kinda of a what happened next novella, just to conclude it more. But overall still a fantastic story and can't wait to read more of Erika's books in general.
Likes: YA, fantasy, crime, thriller, horror, science fiction and romance (in that order).
This book answered almost all of the questions I had about the story and characters introduced in the first two. I really enjoyed it and found it a satisfying conclusion, with just enough left to keep me wondering and thinking about the story afterwards. The world the author has created is absolutely fascinating, the characters are believable and layered, and the fantasy elements are intriguing. A great series for fantasy lovers who like a bit of history and politics thrown in.
