Summary

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 best-selling debut The Queen of the Tearling, Erika Johansen brings back favourite 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.

Oooh dear

Very disappointing book. Very much liked the first and this one missed expectations.
There was little character development, and the story seemed to drag on. This was not helped by the very dull and lengthy descriptions of life before the crossing.
Not a good read

Better read than listened to.

I think this might be a book that is better read than listened to. I devoured the first book of the series after borrowing it from the library. Library didn't have the second one so I decided to listen to it on audible. It wasn't bad, but it just didn't excite me as much as I think reading it would have done.
