Item Details

"On her nineteenth birthday, Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn, raised in exile, sets out on a perilous journey back to the castle of her birth to ascend her rightful throne. Plain and serious, a girl who loves books and learning, Kelsea bears little resemblance to her mother, the vain and frivolous Queen Elyssa. But though she may be inexperienced and sheltered, Kelsea is not defenseless: Around her neck hangs the Tearling sapphire, a jewel of immense magical power; and accompanying her is the Queen's Guard, a cadre of brave knights led by the enigmatic and dedicated Lazarus. Kelsea will need them all to survive a cabal of enemies who will use every weapon--from crimson-caped assassins to the darkest blood magic--to prevent her from wearing the crown."--

This was a wonderful novel and the start of a new and interesting fantasy series. I am eagerly awaiting the next in the series.

I did a longer review on Goodreads because I had a lot to say about this book:

My rating: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/990046363

Not sure it lived up to the hype about this novel, but there was something that kept you reading. Will read the next book in the series for sure. Also knowing that it will be a movie, and Emma Watson will play the main character, interfered with my vision of the main character. Still worth a read however.
