Présentation de l'éditeur

An untested young princess must claim her throne, learn to become a queen, and combat a malevolent sorceress in an epic battle between light and darkness in this spectacular debut—the first novel in a trilogy.

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. But Kelsea is growing in strength and stealth, her steely resolve earning her loyal allies, including the Queen's Guard, led by the enigmatic Lazarus, and the intriguing outlaw known simply as "the Fetch."

Kelsea's quest to save her kingdom and meet her destiny has only just begun. Riddled with mysteries, betrayals, and treacherous battles, Kelsea's journey is a trial by fire that will either forge a legend . . . or destroy her.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 ERIKA JOHANSEN'S SUPERBLY CRAFTED FANTASY! 17 juin 2014
Par the GreatReads! - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The Queen Of The Tearling by Erika Johansen is a superbly crafted young adult fantasy beautifully blended with historical and science fiction full of magic and adventure. In this riveting novel set in the future, Kelsea Raleigh Glynn, heir to the throne of Tearling after her vain and stupid mother was assassinated, is raised by her foster parents Barty and Carlin. For 18 long years she has been hidden from others for her own safety. The country is in chaos. It is on the brink of collapse. The people are starving and desperate. Now, the time has come for her coronation to be the Queen of Tearling.

Leaving her foster parents and escorted by the ragged Queen’s Guards, a cadre of brave knights led by the enigmatic and dedicated Lazarus, who are sworn to protect her, Kelsea begins the perilous journey to the castle. Assassins are prowling as there is a price on her head, and though the Tearling sapphire, a jewel of immense magical power, hangs around her neck, she is eyed with suspicion by Queen’s Guards themselves but eventually won over them.

The task ahead for Kelsea is a daunting one. She lays claim to a kingdom of which she knows nothing about. The people are unforgiving and she must undo the misdeeds of her mother and earn the loyalty of her people. And she has to steer the country on the right path and root out evil forces that are threatening to destroy the very fabric of Tearling.

The Queen Of The Tearling by Erika Johansen is fascinating and a thrilling read. It is full of memorable characters, both likeable and detestable. Author Erika Johansen has done a commendable job in writing an entertaining story which is truly original.

Classic premise: royal baby raised far away from pomp and circumstance to preserve her life; coming of age jump-started by death of previous ruler; royal teen must earn the trust and loyalty of those around her. That's where the classic stops and the fantastic begins. Books figure heavily in this book, as does education and history, although the latter is only hinted at in this preview. And for once, the heroine is not a petite blonde but a large-scale, awkward, still developing teen who has all the attendant insecurities about her looks and her size. I will definitely be reading the full edition!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Overall an amazing read that I would recommend to every YA Fantasy lovers. 20 juin 2014

Soon after her birth Kelsea Glynn was sent away into hiding. Marked for death, she returns to the kingdom once she turns nineteen and now either she will be dead or live to be the fiercest queen of the Tearling. Accompanied by Lazarus, she takes on the perilous journey to win over her people, her country from the clutches of the Red Queen and the respect of The Fetch. But her path is not so easy – filled with hurdles and betrayals, Kelsea has to take on a lot of responsibilities. Will she be successful or will she bite off more than she can chew?!

I absolutely loved this book! From the authors beautiful style of narration to the setting to the charactersto the whole plot. Everything about it is brilliant. I can see the film rights have already been bought even before the release of the book. It has a magnetic quality about it that is absolutely unavoidable and I finished reading this book in one sitting, resulting to a really late dinner for everyone in the family.

Kelsea is a strong character, full of doubts about herself, yet she overcomes them strongly. I liked the way the author narrated her inner turmoil about what actions to take, it made her more real to me. Lazarus is another really strong character. I hope Kelsea has him till the very end. His strong presence lends some assurance about the safety of the princess. And oh! The Fetch. I absolutely love this rebel. There is something charming about this character that has not only Kelsea smitten to him. I also liked the aura of mystery about the Red Queen, her real identity and her powers.

The narration of the story switches from POV to POV giving us a complete look at every aspect of the story from different characters. I wish though the author would have included Lazarus’s POV too. I would have loved to know what goes on in his mind. The plot is totally unique from what I have read so far. Infused with humour and twists, the story is one hell of a roller coaster journey.
