Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Every week on Wednesday book lovers share what new releases we are all excited for, and today I’m waiting on The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johanson.
This is the sequel to The Queen of the Tearling and after the release, has received mixed reviews from the goodreads community. After Kelsea Glynn proves herself to be a respectable and just queen she prepares herself for the day she will meet the Red Queen as an incoming war arrives to her kingdom. Here’s the rest of the story:
As Kelsea grows into her new role as the Queen of the Tearling, the Mort army draws closer. A sign that the Red Queen, with her brutal dark magic, is about to take what is hers into the Tearling and there’s nothing that will stop her from accomplishing that. Kelsea develops a strange connection to a time before the Crossing and makes a dangerous ally with a girl named Lily, fighting for her life were being a female feels criminal. Now Kelsea must find a way to save the fate of the Tearling (and her soul) but will she have enough time to do it all?
Why I’m Waiting:
1) because I read the first book and I like reading stories with strong heroines.
2) I like Kelsea’s Glynn’s in-your-face attitude and her love for reading. She is also a feminist which makes her a kick-ass Queen.
3) I like to see more of the Red Queen as we didn’t see enough of her character in the last book, so it would be interesting to see her in her own environment.
4) I’m also curious if Kelsea will ever find a love interest. I don’t remember her having any chemistry from the first book so I think adding romance to her character will make an interesting addition.
But wait, what about that cover! They changed the cover! Why on earth would they do that!? I really hate it when a series changes their covers because then it creates inconsistency with the books, and I love the cover from the first book better then the this one. I wish they would choose one design for the book covers and just stick with it instead of having to change. Oh well.
