"Katniss Everdeen, you have competition."—Entertainment Weekly

The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Tearling trilogy.

In less than a year, Kelsea Glynn has transformed from a gawky teenager into a powerful monarch. As she has come into her own as the Queen of the Tearling, the headstrong, visionary leader has also transformed her realm. In her quest to end corruption and restore justice, she has made many enemies—including the evil Red Queen, her fiercest rival, who has set her armies against the Tear.

To protect her people from a devastating invasion, Kelsea did the unthinkable—she gave herself and her magical sapphires to her enemy—and named the Mace, the trusted head of her personal guards, regent in her place. But the Mace will not rest until he and his men rescue their sovereign, imprisoned in Mortmesne.

Now, as the suspenseful endgame begins, the fate of Queen Kelsea—and the Tearling itself—will finally be revealed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit of a let down I had a hard time remembering what happened in the previous books. I needed a bit of a reminder chapter that just gave me the highlights from the past books and who everyone was. That's what happens I guess when you read books as they are released. This book definitely tied up all the loose ends and everything came together fairly quickly and tidily. I did enjoy it but it lacked some of the punch of the first two novels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Crafted and a Brilliant Read Spoilers ahead in this review............ The Fate of the Tearling is the last book in the trilogy written by Erika Johansen and was a story that pulls readers in as a rollercoaster ride. The book has left me in tears, grieving for the Tearling that was how it was meant to be if it had run its natural course in history and genuine, heart-felt relief for the Tearling it had become. Maybe it had been because you read in the perspective of Kelsea Glynn and also because you know how the Tearling would have become had it not been changed, it makes you mourn for the world it had been before. Indeed there was much evil in that Tearling that makes you understand the importance of the change that Kelsea had made but the journey through the Tearling before with Kelsea in the first and second book makes you angry about the outcome, to have gone through all the pain and suffering to have it come to an end because of one moment and the death of one man. But it also makes you wonder what would have happened if she had not gone back to that time and changed it. The flow of the book does point you in the direction of her death but what if there had been more to that one moment? What if the crown gave her more power than just to leap through time and change the past? There are many blank moments that give you more questions than answers and it continues to baffle me, what if Kelsea had stayed in that moment and the power of the Queen of Spades had been much more powerful and she saved the Tearling? Saved her guards and saved her people? True I may question this but I also see from the other side of the coin, the peace that William Tear had wanted when he brought people from the old world through to the Crossing had become the fundamental and base foundation of the new world that Kelsea now lived in. You see how Katie had persevered and made everything right. However, as I said at the beginning of the review, I grieve. Not for how the world had once been, not for the brutal life that many of the Tears and Mort had lived, nor the suffering that so many people had to adapt to but the people that Kelsea had once loved and shared irreplaceable moments and memories with. To be the only one who knows how the world had been and to be the only one to live with memories of a different life and ultimately in the end, become of alone in the world despite the life of this new world. You mourn and grieve for the life she once had, the people she once knew and the love that she once shared. You see from both side and know that you’ve done a great deed but to only lose everything you once had. The Tearling series is a series that I will keep with great joy for the rest of my life and will always reread because of the carefully crafted plot and the importance of how history plays in our lives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tearling Book! I love this series so much, and this book was the best in the series! The ending did leave me a little unsatisfied, but I get it. I just feel the main character wasn't fully happy at the end even though she did what she needed to do. But still a series I would read again and recommend to people! Love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from loved the series but was so disappointed with the ending I was absolutely in love with this series, I could not put these books down. The first part of this book was sooo good and it tied up so many loose questions, but I was so disappointed with how the author decided to conclude this story. In my opinion, it made the whole series irrelevant.

Editorial Reviews

“A time-traveling adventure with the fate of a world in the balance. . . . Johansen creates her most sweeping vision of Kelsea and her world yet, packing her story with political machinations and explosive revelations, including the long-withheld identity of Kelsea’s father. The stunning ending makes a bold statement about sacrifice and rebirth. . . . Astonishing.”
