The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

Invasion of the Tearling
by Erika Johansen
The Queen of the Tearling Trilogy - Book 2
514 pages

Kelsea Glynn, the Queen of the Tearling is back in a brand new adventure. War has been declared on the Tearling by The Red Queen and her Mort army which are slowly marching toward the kingdom to invade and cause violence. While preparing for the inevitable, Kelsea also has to deal with the new holy father and her fainting spells which teleport her to the past before the Tearling existed in the pre-crossing. She finds herself relying on a strange and possibly dangerous ally; a woman named Lily, who is fighting for her life in a world where being female can feel like a crime. Soon Kelsea herself begins to change; she does not recognize either her reflection in the mirror or the extraordinary power she now commands. The fate of the Tearling - and that of Kelsea's own soul - may rest with Lily and her story, but Queen Kelsea is running out of time.....

I was really excited when I realized the second book in this trilogy was available and so looked forward to listening to it hoping it would be read by the previous reader Katherine Kellgren. Alas it was not to be. The second book is read by Davina Porter and though I enjoyed Katherine's reading more, I got used to Davina and looked forward to what was going to happen next in the story. I can't wait until the final book in the trilogy is available to find out what happens to Queen Kelsea and her kingdom.

AUTHOR INFORMATION: Erika Johansen grew up and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. She went to Swarthmore College, earned an MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop, and eventually became an attorney, but she never stopped writing. The Queen of the Tearling is her first novel. 

“Harry Potter” star Emma Watson, who announced she’s signed on as both executive producer for the film adaptation of the book — the first in a trilogy by debut author Erika Johansen — and its star. “I was desperate to hate it,” joked Watson, who conceded she couldn’t put the book down.
