The Queen of the Tearling captured me right from the start, as Kelsea leaves her protected life in the woods far away from the capital, she sets out on a dangerous journey. A journey that makes her, and the reader, aware of how little she knows of the status of her kingdom. As it will turn out, not knowing much about what is going will be your mantra for this novel.
