Fate of the Tearling/Erika Johansen/478 pages

Fate of the Tearling is the finale to the Tearling trilogy by Erika Johansen. At the conclusion of book 2,  the evil  and feared Red Queen  has unleashed her armies to march against and crush the Tear.  In hopes of saving her people, Queen Kelsea has surrendered herself and her magical  sapphires to the enemy. This is a huge epic fantasy, sci-fi and maybe a little horror, with several subplots to keep things interesting. After pages and pages of jumping back and forth between worlds and hoping that some of those dangling plot lines will be addressed, you might be a little disappointed. -- Johansen’s vision—a society tearing itself apart amid the effort to redefine itself—is ambitious, and the conflict is fleshed out through myriad character arcs. . . . wraps up the story quite nicely.” (Publishers Weekly)
