Kelsea is the young Queen of the Tearling and whilst trying to do something good she incurs the wrath of the Red Queen. The Red Queen’s armies are set to invade the Tearling and nothing will stop them.
I thought that this was a fantastic sequel. I really enjoyed the first book but this was even better. We got to see a lot of development. Kelsea becomes very dark in this book and through her visions we are introduced to a new character called Lily. Lily lived before the Crossing and we get to find more information about the Crossing which I really enjoyed. Despite its length, I flew this book as it was so fast paced. There are a lot of twists and turns and so many secrets and questions that I hope will get answered in the last book.
