The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen


This is the second book in the Tearling Trilogy; the first is The Queen of the Tearling. A fantasy adventure tale of a girl called Kelsea – a feisty, young and fairly unlikely queen, who must learn the difficult truth of her own heritage before she can take on the evil Red Queen invading Tearling. The land of Tearling is a post-apocalyptic, yet primitive world that a few industrious survivors made the crossing to after the demise of our own world. Kelsea learns the corruptive nature of power, and her strengths and weaknesses in resisting the darker side of her own nature. Fantasy is not a genre for every taste; however, Johansen’s intelligent and contemporary characters give her books an added depth. And they are fun, well-written and strangely addictive.

With each passing day, Kelsea Glynn is growing into her new responsibilities as Queen of the Tearling. By stopping the shipments of slaves to the neighbouring kingdom of Mortmesne, she crossed the Red Queen, a brutal ruler whose power derives from dark magic, who is sending her fearsome army into the Tearling to take what is hers. And nothing can stop the invasion. But as the Mort army draws ever closer, Kelsea develops a mysterious connection to a time before the Crossing, and she finds herself relying on a strange and possibly dangerous ally: a woman named Lily, fighting for her life in a world where being female can feel like a crime. The fate of the Tearling – and that of Kelsea’s own soul – may rest with Lily and her story, but Kelsea may not have enough time to find out. In this dazzling sequel to her bestselling debut, The Queen of the Tearling, Erika Johansen brings back favourite characters, including the Mace and the Red Queen, and show more
