Recensione

"I couldn’t put the bloody thing down. It would be fair to say I became obsessed with the role and the book" (EMMA WATSON)

"Did you love The Hunger Games? Partial to an episode of Game of Thrones? Then you’re going to want to dive straight in to this new fantasy . . . brilliantly imagined and captivatingly written" (HEAT)

"An assured and confident debut . . . featuring a strong female lead and a well-realised far-future post-apocalyptic world" (INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

"Like Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games meets Pulp Fiction" (DAILY MAIL)

"Destined to be a fantasy classic. Johansen’s writing is assured, confident and thrilling. I can’t wait for the next book." (AMY McCULLOCH, author of The Oathbreaker’s Shadow)

Descrizione del libro

Emma Watson said 'I couldn't put the bloody thing down' and Bernard Cornwell said 'I can't wait to read more' about this addictive debut that brings together the narrative drive of The Hunger Games with the political chicanery of Games of Thrones - and is soon to be filmed by the dream team behind Harry Potter!

5.0 su 5 stelle Solid...fantasy? Sci fi? Dystopia? Little bit of each? 16 novembre 2016

This series is a builder. The world, characters, and plot are built slowly but steadily over the course of the trilogy. The plot doesn't cut out on a cliffhanger, but you will not have many answers by the end of the first book, and you won't quite have all of them by the end of the second. If this sounds like something that would drive you nuts, skip this series. Personally, I loved it.

It's not a matter of leaving loose ends; rather, the author knows where she's going and she's going to take her own time getting there. And she WILL get there. I like complex world-building stories, and this one feels like a comfortable entry-level offering. The writing doesn't have the lyrical quality of Name of the Wind, or the driving action of The First Law, but I was just as absorbed by this series as I was by those two. Kelsea, as a heroine, actually managed to feel fresh, not very cliché at all. My only complaint would have to be that the simplistic writing style felt better suited to a younger audience, and this series is definitely for older teens and adults. I don't really care about sex (and in fact there isn't much of it), and the violence wasn't notably gruesome, but there was a surprising amount of rape. At least A Song of Ice and Fire feels like an adult story. This series reads like the younger end of YA, which made it that much more jarring. I will say, though, that it does not glory in it.

All in all, though, this is an excellent series, and an author to watch.

3.0 su 5 stelle Coming down from a strong book hangover to realize the book was good but not great 24 novembre 2016
Di Nichole - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This is me : First 30 minutes after reading a book " Oh my gosh that was amazing " book hangover high. Then over the next few hours as I start to analyze what I read it hits me, and suddenly small flaws and inconsistencies start adding up. With the whole series I read the first two so fast I couldnt absorb the fact that parts of this story dont add up. The flow is off. The writing is amazing and the authors talent is never a question in my head. That being said I went into this book thinking it took place in one time period only to get completely turned around by the middle and realize its the future not the past. I dont think that is made clear enough in the beginning of the book and really think it would make the reading smoother if it was clarified.
Another thing I noticed is that while I am totally invested in the characters by book 2 the lack of backstory really stifles them and doesnt show much about who they are. Like Fetch for instance he is basically a mysterious shade we know nothing about except the queen is half in love after one brief meeting. I fully admit this book had me hooked I didnt want to put it down and read it all in a day, but like all honeymoon periods it came to an end and I was left with a nagging since of confusion. I also want to caution that while I thought this would be more young adult its more adult that say Hunger Games and should be read with that in mind.

3.0 su 5 stelle Enjoyable but not mind blowing 12 luglio 2016
Di Justus Pendleton - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This was a pretty fun read, considering its size. At over 600 pages, I still finished it quickly. The book does a few things quite nicely but has just plenty of faults, which knock it down a few stars. It is good "beach" reading but it isn't the kind of book I'm going to run out and recommend to all my friends.

The good: That it starts out with Kelsea as queen. There's no long prologue of her as the serving woman. No two-books-worth of a fight for the kingdom.

There is no "big evil". I mean, sure, the Red Queen is a bad guy but it feels like a political thing than an a supernatural thing. More like fighting Hitler than Satan.

The point of view doesn't jump between dozens of characters. Yes, there are few chapters showing us a few other characters. But I'd say 80% of the book is focused on Kelsea's point of view. I'm tired of sprawling fantasy epics that have a different character POV every chapter.

The bad: Kelsea's companions all fall into place too easily. They're all too perfect. Pick a random woman out of the crowd to be your handmaiden? Yeah, she's got the ability to see the future. Choose a random meek priest to perform the coronation? He'll be the only priest in the world with a similar fetish for historical books. For someone who was raised in a shack with no human contact, Kelsea is remarkably lucky at picking her companions.

The bad guys are ridiculously bad. A bit of grey would have made things more interesting. Not only did the Regent steal her throne. But he also is into slavery. AND he has bad taste in art.

Not only is the handmaiden's ex-husband abusive...but he's ALSO a pedophile.

Kelsea has a number of "visions" that act as convenient deus ex machina to propel the action. She has a vision of villagers shackled into slavery and sets out to free them. Why didn't she have a vision of the people plotting that a few days in advance? Well, we needed a rousing action scene at the end of the book.

Overall, things just go too easily for Kelsea in this book. All her friends are perfect. All of her decisions work out well, no matter how impetuous or thoughtless. Even when she disappears for a week to go save the villagers, her kingdom seems to tick along just fine without her.

I don't want all of my fantasy to be grimdark but I think things could have been a bit more difficult for Kelsea.

The Queen of the Tearling is the story of Kelsea, daughter of Elyssa, and now that she is of-age, she is the new Queen of the Tearling. Mace and the Queen’s guard show up at her adoptive family’s house to bring her back to the Keep, where she will take over the duties from her uncle, the King Regent.

This story is slow. It moves so slowly. You could probably cut out half of it and not lose any relevant plot points. Normally, this genre of fiction has me itching to read just one more chapter, just one more page, before bed, but I only felt relief after finishing a chapter. That’s another thing: this 630 page book only has 14 chapters, so you’ll definitely want to tuck in before you start reading a chapter. It felt like this story was just a long introduction to the subsequent books (there are 3 in this series). However, all of the backstory, world building, and plot moving was tedious and boring. I hesitate to call the climax of this book a climax, because it was a short lived “battle” with a magical ending. Yawn.

Kelsea is an interesting character, and I’m not sure that I even liked her. She grew up with her foster parents, Carlin and Barty Glenn. Once her mother had died, she was sent to live with them to learn how to be a Queen and to grow up before she became of age and became the Queen. Growing up in this isolated cottage, Kelsea only ever interacted with Carlin and Barty. I had a very hard time buying into the fact that, even though she’s only ever talked to two different individuals, she doesn’t seem to lack any social skills. In fact, she even flirts with one of her captors a bit! How can a person with limited human interaction experience just go straight into commanding people as a Queen and flirting with pretty men? It’s unbelievable, and took me out of the story.

Kelsea has a little bit of character development, but not enough to make me feel for her. The only extraordinary things that she does throughout this whole book come from her magical necklaces, not from something she actually has done. She can’t fight, and she can barely make decisions about her kingdom without looking to Mace (captain of the Queen’s Guard).

I thought The Fetch was an interesting character; he is a notorious thief, whose face no one has ever seen. He’s always up to trouble, appears in surprising places, and seems to know a lot. I was craving more time with The Fetch, to see what he is up to, but there wasn’t enough of his character in the book.

Overall, I was unimpressed and underwhelmed by this story. It seemed like it was all an introduction to a real epic story, except this was 630 pages of introduction. There is not enough conflict, emotion, or drive to make me want to continue reading the story.

5.0 su 5 stelle Fantastic debut! 3 dicembre 2016
Di Jayelle - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Born to rule a kingdom she knows nothing about, Kelsea is raised in exile. On her nineteenth birthday, she must journey back to New London and claim her mother's throne as her own. Hunted by assassins hired by the Red Queen of Mortmesne who wants her dead at all costs, Kelsea must decide who to trust and what she has to sacrifice to save her kingdom.

A thrilling, epic journey showing one young woman's courage to do what is right and not what is easy. The world building and character development in this book blew my mind. Kelsea is a strong, yet naive woman thrust into ruling a kingdom she knows little about. All she has is herself and her Queens Guard.

The Tearling is a vast land of varying landscapes. From forests to deserts, it is a magical world held under the threat of invasion from Mortmesne.

A definite must read for lovers of fantasy, Queen of the Tearling is an epic adventure you won't want to miss.
