Publisher's Summary

Her throne awaits ... if she can live long enough to take it.It was on her 19th birthday that the soldiers came for Kelsea Glynn. They'd come to escort her back to the place of her birth – and to ensure she survives long enough to be able to take possession of what is rightfully hers.
But like many 1-year-olds, Kelsea is unruly, has high principles and believes she knows better than her elders. Unlike many 19-year-olds, she is about to inherit a kingdom that is on its knees – corrupt, debauched and dangerous.
Kelsea will either become the most fearsome ruler the kingdom has ever known ... or be dead within the week.


What the Critics Say

"I had kind of said I would never do a franchise again, so I was desperate to hate it. Unfortunately, I didn't sleep for about a week because I couldn't put the bloody thing down. It would be fair to say I became obsessed with the role and the book." (Emma Watson)
"The Queen of the Tearling is a gripping read with an enchanting heroine. Erika Johansen has created a wonderful world and I can't wait to read more." (Bernard Cornwell)
"Destined to be a fantasy classic. Johansen's writing is assured, confident and thrilling. I can't wait for the next book." (Amy McCulloch)
"A fast-paced and original fantasy, written with a confident and accomplished style, with plenty of intrigue and mystery." (Adrian Tchaikovsky)

Really good book for any fans of the fantasy genre

Very gripping story, I got through it very quickly. The narrator was excellent for the most part, though I did find her slightly excessively loud and urgent during the crescendo moments. Very good quality recording.
