Fiction Short Take: The Fate of the Tearling – Erika Johansen

Fans have been clamoring for the conclusion of this epic fantasy series and by all reports they will not be disappointed. It is both a LibraryReads and Indie Next pick–and reviewers as well as booksellers praise the conclusion and the surprise turn at the ending.

“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

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

“Queen Kelsea returns as one of the most fascinating, complex, and human characters in modern fantasy. We last saw her held captive by the Red Queen, her shredded kingdom held together only by the sheer will of her closest guards. Now Kelsea struggles to find ways to save the Tearling in the present as her powers give her insights to the past that mean everything for the future….In this conclusion to an enthralling series, all the ends are tied and resolutions are found … though not in a way Kelsea – or the readers – could ever expect.”
— Kelly Morton, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Cincinnati, OH
