I was really excited about this debut from Erika Johansen as soon as I heard about it. The Queen of the Tearling is an interesting sci-fi style Dystopian-esque novel, through the eyes of Kelsea of Raleigh, the true queen of the Tearling. I’m hooked. The follow up The Invasion of the Tearling was good too, and I’m looking forward to the final chapter in the trilogy. Supposedly they’re turning this book into a movie, so hurry and read it before Hollywood gets it’s claws into it! It’s a great read by a woman author, who weaves a most excellent tale as we see the main heroine fight for her people, and hope to be the queen her mother never was. This installment of Literary Lingerie is dedicated to the book and all things new and old that you may find in the Tearling, or what was once our world, before the Crossing.
