Review: The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen


In this riveting sequel to the national bestsellerThe Queen of the Tearling, the evil kingdom of Mortmesne invades the Tearling, with dire consequences for Kelsea and her realm.
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 neighboring 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, Erika Johansen brings back favorite characters, including the Mace and the Red Queen, and introduces unforgettable new players, adding exciting layers to her multidimensional tale of magic, mystery, and a fierce young heroine. 

My Review:

In this stunning sequel to Queen of the Tearling, Kelsea faces the consequences of stopping the transport of slaves to the Red Queen in Mortmesne.

The Mort Army is planning an invasion and as they prepare to cross into the Tearling, Kelsea begins to have visions of a woman named Lily who lived in the pre-crossing error. Kelsea is convinced these visions are the key to protecting her kingdom and stopping the Mort invasion.

Even more heart pounding than its predecessor,  The Invasion of the Tearling takes the reader on a journey back to the time before the crossing and answers questions about all Kelsea's family, how the Tearling came to be and who the Red Queen may be.

We learn more about the Mace and new characters who play a big role in the story are introduced. A smashing follow up that leaves you hanging on until the last page then has you needing to know what happens next!
