Now in paperback is Erika Johansen’s The Queen of the Tearling—the first in a fantasy trilogy set in a dystopian future in which a young princess must reclaim her throne, learn to be a ruler, and defeat the Red Queen, a powerful and malevolent sorceress determined to destroy her. The Queen of the Tearling came out in hardcover last year and received amazing reviews, with USA Today saying that “The Tear is just as easy to get sucked into as Westeros or Hogwarts or Panem.” The San Francisco Chronicle raved that “Queen Kelsea is the most compelling badass heroine since Katniss Everdeen in this fantasy epic set in a neo-feudal future.”

A young woman.
An evil enemy.
A birthright foretold . . .
With the arrival of her nineteenth birthday, Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn is ascending to her rightful place as the new Queen of the Tearling. Surrounded by enemies, including an evil sorceress possessed of dark magic, the young ruler stands little chance of success. But Kelsea possesses fearsome weapons of her own, including the Tear sapphire, a jewel of immense power and magic. As an epic war draws near, Kelsea's quest to save her kingdom and meet her destiny begins—a wondrous journey of self-discovery and a trial by fire that will make her a legend...if she can survive.
