By: Erika Johansen
Location: FIC JOH
Genre: Scifiparafantasy
Series; The Queen of the Tearling #1

A young woman.
A Kingdom.
An evil enemy.
A birthright foretold…

Kelsea Glynn is the sole heir to the throne of Tearling but has been raised in secret by foster parents after her mother - Queen Elyssa, as vain as she was stupid - was murdered for ruining her kingdom.  On Kelsea's 19th birthday, the tattered remnants of her mother's guard - each pledged to defend the queen to the death - arrive to bring this most un-regal young woman out of hiding...

And so begins her journey back to her kingdom's heart, to claim the throne, earn the loyalty of her people, overturn her mother's legacy and redeem the Tearling from the forces of corruption and dark magic that are threatening to destroy it. But Kelsea's story is not just about her learning the true nature of her inheritance - it's about a heroine who must learn to acknowledge and live with the realities of coming of age in all its insecurities and attractions, alongside the ethical dilemmas of ruling justly and fairly while simply trying to stay alive

In a land in mortal peril…and with an evil sorceress bent on domination…a princess must learn to become a heroine.

Dazzling magic and mystery collide in a heartrending romance that will stir your soul and take you on the most unforgettable adventure of a lifetime! The Queen of the Tearling’ is set within a world as realistically imagined and terrifying as that of The Hunger Games, and which incorporates a cast of characters as colourful as those in A Game of Thrones. The combination of thrilling action, twists & turns in the intricately woven plot and remarkable inspired vision is not only breathtaking but very ambitious too!

Warner Bros. Has acquired the rights to the Queen of the Tearling in conjunction with Harry Potter producer David Heyman, with Emma Watson attached to star!!
