just finished reading

The final installment of this trilogy--I couldn't put it down! It wrapped up a lot of the lingering questions I had from book two--The Invasion of the Tearling. I liked that the secondary characters were true to form. I didn't like that it was told in flashback as much as it was; I missed the action of Kelsea. Good storytelling!

From the publisher:
In less than a year, Kelsea Glynn has grown from an awkward teenager into a powerful monarch and a visionary leader.

And as she has come into her own as the Queen of the Tearling, she has transformed her realm. But in her quest to end corruption and restore justice, she has made many enemies - chief among them the evil and feared Red Queen, who ordered the armies of Mortmesne to march against the Tear and crush them.

To protect her people from such a devastating invasion, Kelsea did the unthinkable - naming the Mace, the trusted head of her personal guards, Regent in her place, she surrendered herself and her magical sapphires to her enemy. But the Mace will not rest until he and his men rescue their sovereign from her prison in Mortmesne.
