Review: The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

Thursday, May 28, 2015
Why I chose this book:
The Queen of the Tearling was very nearly my top read of last year. I was obsessed, you guys! Like seriously obsessed! So when The Invasion of the Tearling was available on Edelweiss, I got on that book swiftly! I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book of the content of my review.

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 possible 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 habve enough time to find out. (Goodreads)
