FREE READ The Fate of the Tearling ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB But the Mace will not rest until he and his men rescue their sovereign from her prison in MortmesneSo the endgame has begun and the fate of ueen Kelsea and the Tearling itself will be revealedWith The Fate of the Tearling Erika Johansen draws her unforgettable story full of magic and adventure to a thrilling clos I put a lot of pressure on the conclusions of series Most readers do Annnnnnnnd Erika Johansen did not disappoint and wove a beautiful 3rd book and ending to this series The Fate of the Tearling deserves 55 starsThe ending was a bit of a moment I honestly did not expect that ending There were things I wanted from the conclusion of this book that I did not get Yet I must remind myself that the book itself was astonishing It brought the best elements of the previous 2 books The ending although not what I would have preferred did not ruin this series for me If you have not read this series I urge to try it It has become one of my favourite fantasy series Erika Johansen created a world full of history and complex details To have a fantasy series dive into the world s history and how the world was developed is amazing Few books really do that For me I loved it There were so many small details in this book that all come together in the end every word she wrote had a purpose to the story I m sure this is a series that when you re read it you catch something new every time and it makes it even betterAnother reason this series is amazing is because there are soo many life lessons One of them is to accept yourself appearances are deceiving and you should not care if you re pretty or skinny Another message as one of the comments on this review shared is that everything comes with a price I cannot wait to see what other books Erika Johansen writes because it will be an insta buy The rest of my review contains spoilers The ENDING Everything throughout the books was leading up to this moment and I felt like it was only partially satisfying It was a completely different worldNot completely different but everything had seemed to change for the better which is awesome But no one else remembered what Kelsea did or everything that happened in that alternate history She was alone her friends were leading other lives without the slightest notion of what had happened I was happy for Pen that he found love and a family Happy that in this alternate world Aisa probably did not have her neck snapped or who knows maybe she never existed Her mother may have never married her terrible father It was just so surreal this ending Kelsea felt alone After all the experiences binding everyone together she was the only one who remembered It was sad Happy but sad A sacrifice for the better good I liked that Carlin was still alive and that Elyssa was present in Kelsea s life she finally had the mother she dreamed of Sure it wasn t perfect but they had a good new life and relationship Okay I m backing it up now So Mhurn was her father I actually really enjoyed that reveal Throughout the book we were led to think it had to be someone noble and strong and powerful I liked that Mhurn was her father because unlike some fantasy novels Erika Johansen made her father a regular guy A guy that had issues drug problems Her mother was vain and not very bright It was different unexpected and very refreshingAnother reason I was slightly disappointed with the ending was that we grew accustomed to so many characters that we didn t get to see how their new lives planned out Ewen Elston Barty Andalie Hall etc There was also the idea that was brought in earlier in the series about the importance of a printing press and the loss of innovation from the crossing Innovation that Hall s twin brother as we learned in this final book had the potential to bring to the Tearling An entire small story arc that relatively didn t have much of a conclusion We are just to assume most of them were alive and living lives that were significantly better then the ones they were living before Pen and Kelsea s reunion was very underwhelming I understood what had happened each character growing and learning about themselves in different ways Yet I still was disappointed with their amicable break up I m not sure if break up is the word since they were never really a couple It was very amicable and I liked how Johansen wrote it In the aftermath Kelsea still felt for Pen that longing and hurt that most people feel after losing a friend or significant other When you see each other on the street or with friends and you no longer have the chemistry or acknowledgement of closeness that you had before It was realistic and I liked thatWhen Kelsea saw the Mace my feels were uncontainable I was really upturned by how Aisa was killed uickly and with very little reaction from the other characters The Caden killed her so they could reap the reward After all they had been through together Or was it a mercy killing because of her infection We truly will never know There was so much going on in the ending there that the characters had no time to really spend thinking about her death but I still felt like perhaps we could have had a bit on thatI have read critiues on this series especially about how Kelsea views vanity and her judgemental tendencies Yet if they read the whole series they should realize that it was all part of something she had to deal with Her mother was extremely vain and beautiful yet Kelsea was extremely insecure about her beauty she knew she was plain and wasn t skinny and didn t really like how she was portrayed She also didn t want to end up like her mother Her judgement came from a place of insecurity and she learns within the book that beauty is not important that appearances are deceiving and that lastly they should not hold much weight She wakes up in this new world and there is a mirror A full length mirror She had grown up differently in the other world but now that Elyssa was raising her there were mirrors around At this point she see s her original self is back and she is grateful for it She had finally accepted herself for who she was and was learning to accept others for their faults as well This story arc was complicated and I guess some people just didn t relate to it or understand it thus they criticized it Yet it all comes full circle in the end with a good message There is so much to discuss with this book and I m sure I will add later when I think of it Happy readingITS FINALLY HERE I m so excited omfg hype hype hype hype hype This year we have harry potter and the cursed child empire of storms AND the fate of the tearling WE ARE SO LUCKY GUYSThis series is so underrated like why is this not on

REVIEW Ø PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Erika Johansen

The Fate of the Tearling

FREE READ The Fate of the Tearling ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB In less than a year Kelsea Glynn has grown from an awkward teenager into a powerful monarch and a visionary leaderAnd as she has come into her own as the ueen of the Tearling she has transformed her realm But in her uest to end corruption and restore justice she has made many enemies chief among them the evil and Alright I d put off reading this for a long time because I kept reading review after review about some sort of a wonky ending I loved both of the other books and I just couldn t seem to bring myself to ruin it if Johansen decided to pull a Divergent on me you know Ok so this was the second time I d checked the book out from the library and I almost let it go back againbut at the 11th hour I decided to grab my nuts just go for itWHOA I m so glad I did Talk about an interesting ride This was such a cool story I literally finished it in two days Sure I had stuff to do but you know how it is when a book is that good You re scared to see what happens next but you have to see what happens nextI gotta say that I did get the vast majority of my uestions answered Enough at least that I m not pissed off by a ton of dangling threads And I had already figured out what the solution to all of this stuff would have to be by the halfway point so that wasn t a surprise to me eitherTHAT ENDING THOUGHIt was oddOk now I m going to put some tagged spoilers at the end for those of you who want to get a peek but for those of you who don t want any I ll just give you a non spoilery answer about itMy BIGGEST problem with the way it ended was that it was justABRUPTI seriously sat there screwing around with my Kindle for about 15 minutes trying to see if there was an epilogue or something I missed Like shit just got cut off Where the fuck is the rest of the storyI mean I m sure the author meant it to seem like a dramatic way for it to end Boom Screen goes blackBut damn That was just a pisser Ok ok Not that bad but the strange way the story stopped really did lessen my enjoyment for the overall trilogy Sorry I gotta knock a star off for it because the way you close something is just as important to readers as everything in between We get invested in these characters and their worlds and when they don t get what we feel is a proper send off there s some very real disappointment that churns in our tummiesStill on the whole this was a great book and I m glad I read itAlrighty For those of you who are like me and by that I mean you occasionally read the last page first or for those of you who have already read this and want to discuss itrubs hands togetherview spoilerI usually hate it when an author kills off the main character Like hate hate it Some books are exceptions because you know going into it that it s doubtful anyone will survive think Game of Thrones but for basically everything else I draw a line in the sand with that sort of thing It s a personal preference but I absolutely refuse to invest my time in a character just to have the author murdersuicidesacrificewhatever them at the endSO I PEEKEDYeah that s right I scrolled to the back and made sure that Kelsea made it to the last page Whatever Fight me bitch PbbbbbtObviously she does survive because otherwise I wouldn t be writing this reviewOk with that out of the way I proceeded to read this sucker And like I said by the halfway point I was fairly certain that Kelsea was going to have to go back in time and try to fix things from that end Here s what did surprise me though I sort of assumed she d stay thereIt didn t occur to me that after she fixed it she d end up back in her original time But then again I thought it was cool that you could see that her desperate attempt to save everyone workedYayLooked like everything was going well for the Tearling New London societyExcept Kelsea still had all her memories and no one remembered her which duhBut the fact that she was all miserable and depressed about all of the friends that she d lost was a HUGE anti happy pill I thought that when Carlin began talking to her at the very end we would get than one paragraph of Kelsea taking a deep breath and suaring her shoulders to the reality of her new life The fuckAfter all I d been through with this character I wanted to hear about her life a month later a year from then 20 years down the road SOMETHINGEh it coulda been worseBut I still have a few uestions First why did Kelsea pick that moment to go back in time I get that it was her last memory of what Katie had been doing sitting in a dungeon with Jonathan waiting for Row and the others to come back and kill themBut why not go back before all of that Like back to the night that Row left her in the woods with that creature he made I mean if Kelsea was going to kill him that would have been the PERFECT time He was already evil at that point so it s not like she was killing an innocent and EVERYONE was STILL alive William Lily Katie s mom etcShe could have offed him and then told William that he HAD to start telling all the younger people what had really happened before the Crossing then go scare the shit out of or kill the weird religious guy and put an end to his nonsense It s not like he wouldn t have believed her if she d told him all that stuff he s a fucking time traveler himselfOr did it only work if all of the Tearlings were dead and Katie became a ueen who with the help of Gavin and the others instituted a democracy after her death Or why couldn t she go back to when they originally landed and just pass that info on to William years before everything went sourHey William Just popped back in time to let you know that if you don t start talking about the past this utopia won t work You may also want to institute some form of democracy or you re in for a whole bunch of your descendants f ing things up PS Row is evil and on his way to becoming a vampire You may want to deal with that sooner rather than later And speaking of dealing with something what was up with KelseaKatie hopping on Jonathan s back and then snapping his neck That was a veeeeeeery WTF moment for meDid he have to die for some reason If his goodness was so overpowering couldn t she just have told him to leave the settlement and never come backI meanneck snapping is so fucking final amiriteIt would have also been cool to know why the Tears could use these Sapphires and why the stones were magical to start with Hey uick uestion what was the deal with the stone that appeared in the dungeon with Kelsea It was all glowing and protective when the creepy jailer showed up and thenwhat happened to it Did I miss somethingI m not complaining about the way the author resolved everything I m just wondering if anyone else felt like there were a few holes in the plot andor unanswered uestions I guess one way to look at it is to say that Kelsea had no real way to know if killing Row would work and she also had no idea that New London would work because it had a constitution without a king or ueen And I am for the most part satisfied with the way it all went down hide spoiler Comfort of a Man ueen of the Tearling she has transformed her realm But in her Husband From 9 To 5 uest to end corruption and restore justice she has made many enemies chief among them the evil and Alright I d put off reading
