The Fate of the Tearling

A Novel

About the Book

"Katniss Everdeen, you have competition."—Entertainment Weekly

The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Tearling trilogy.

In less than a year, Kelsea Glynn has transformed from a gawky teenager into a powerful monarch. As she has come into her own as the Queen of the Tearling, the headstrong, visionary leader has also transformed her realm. In her quest to end corruption and restore justice, she has made many enemies—including the evil Red Queen, her fiercest rival, who has set her armies against the Tear.

To protect her people from a devastating invasion, Kelsea did the unthinkable—she gave herself and her magical sapphires to her enemy—and named the Mace, the trusted head of her personal guards, regent in her place. But the Mace will not rest until he and his men rescue their sovereign, imprisoned in Mortmesne.

Now, as the suspenseful endgame begins, the fate of Queen Kelsea—and the Tearling itself—will finally be revealed.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Kelsea flourishes alongside the other female characters at the center of the novel: These are powerful, determined women who work hard to accomplish their goals even as their mistakes haunt them. Johansen doesn’t punish them for these mistakes; she allows them to grow, leading to a well-earned ending.” —Washington Post

“Johansen has consistently taken huge narrative risks with this series. . . . With richly developed characters who are never boring black and white, and villains who are as fascinating as the heroes, the finale of this outstanding series will be talked about by readers.” —Library Journal, Pick of the Month

“Johansen’s vision—a society tearing itself apart amid the effort to redefine itself—is ambitious, and the conflict is fleshed out through myriad character arcs. . . . wraps up the story quite nicely.”Publishers Weekly

“Excellent.” —Entertainment Weekly, “Must List”

”The final Queen of the Tearling installment continues to follows the fate of Queen Kelsea and the Tearling in a heart-pounding, epic conclusion of this series. It’s one that’s been eagerly anticipated, so if you haven’t read the prior two books, you’ll definitely want to get on top of that.”Buzzfeed

This is a thrilling conclusion to a fantastic trilogy. . . . Johansen’s fans will be pleased.”Booklist (starred review)

“Fantasy fans will flock to this electrifying conclusion to the best-selling Tearling trilogy.” —Cosmopolitan

“...Find out the result of Queen Kelsea’s bejeweled sacrifice in the finale of our favorite fantasy trilogy.”Entertainment Weekly

“Genuinely subversive: social commentary in the guise of supernatural adventure.” —Locus Magazine

“A time-traveling adventure with the fate of a world in the balance. . . . Johansen creates her most sweeping vision of Kelsea and her world yet, packing her story with political machinations and explosive revelations, including the long-withheld identity of Kelsea’s father. The stunning ending makes a bold statement about sacrifice and rebirth. . . . Astonishing.” —Shelf Awareness
