Queen of the Tearling (#1)
|Series:||The\Tearling Trilogy Ser.|
This has been the surprise star of our book clubs. Pretty much everyone loved it, even those who said they 'didn't read fantasy' thoroughly enjoyed it. The main character Kelsea wins your heart and you're rooting for her all the way.
Combining the sinuous drama of Game of Thrones, the narrative drive of The Hunger Games and a brilliantly imagined and engaging young central protagonist, The Queen of the Tearling is the thrilling opening chapter in a dazzling, daringly original new fantasy adventure.
"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 "Did you love The Hunger Games? Partial to an episode of Game of Thrones? Then you're going to want to dive straight in to this new fantasy ... brilliantly imagined and captivatingly written" HEAT "An assured and confident debut ... featuring a strong female lead and a well-realised far-future post-apocalyptic world" INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY "Like Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games meets Pulp Fiction" DAILY MAIL "Destined to be a fantasy classic. Johansen's writing is assured, confident and thrilling. I can't wait for the next book." AMY McCULLOCH, author of The Oathbreaker's Shadow
