Waiting On Wednesday No. 159: The Fate of the Tearling, by Erika Johansen

This is a weekly event hosted by
It showcases future releases which
we book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!!

Here's my choice for this week!

The Fate of the Tearling
(The Queen of the Tearling, Book 3)   
Hardcover, 416 pages
HarperCollins Publishers
November 29, 2016
Fantasy, Young Adult Fiction

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.

Why I'm waiting on this one!

This is  definitely a most unique fantasy
series, which I have just found out
about!  Of course, I want to read it from the 
very beginning. The concept is
new and original, while the fact that
there's a strong heroine involved
is a HUGE plus to me!
I'm very much intrigued!!


What do you think of my choice?

come check out your pick(s)!


  1. I am ALL for a strong heroine! I have to look this series up too! Here's mine:

    1. Hi, Verushka!

      YAY for strong heroines!! You definitely need to look up this series!!

      Thanks for commenting!! :)

  2. Can you believe I own the first 2 on my Kindle, my husband bought me the first one for Christmas, and I STILL haven't read them. I love the cover on this one and I might as well wait until it comes out before I even start it now. I know they are filming a movie because they have cast Emma Watson as the lead. I at least need to get it read before that happens. Great choice!

    1. Hi, Barb!

      Yes, I can believe it, because I'm in the same boat! I have SO many great books I haven't started yet....

      How nice that your husband gave you the first two books for Christmas! You could start reading them now, but then, as you say, you might as well wait until this one is released.

      What GREAT news, that Emma Watson will be the lead in this movie!! I really like her; she's a TERRIFIC actress!! And she's an activist for gender equality, too!! Thanks for letting me know! That motivates me even more to start reading this series!! YAY!!

      Thanks for the GREAT comment!! :)

  3. I haven't read any of this series either. I hope you enjoy reading all 3 books! Thanks for stopping by My WoW earlier.

    1. Hi, Sandra!

      Oh, I know I'll enjoy all 3 books! I hope you do, too, when you read them!

      You're very welcome for my visit to your your WOW! Thanks to you as well, for commenting back!! :)

  4. I cannot wait to read this book as well! I don't like this new cover scheme for this book at all, but I cannot wait to see how the story ends. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous week, Maria. :)

    1. Hi, Alyssa!

      I'm so glad you like this one, too! I'm even more excited, now that I've found out, thanks to Barb (see her comment above), that EMMA WATSON will be playing the title role in a new movie!! YAY!!!

      As for the cover, I do like the huge, aqua-colored jewel, as well as the decorations at the top and bottom. But you're right about the color scheme -- the background color doesn't go with with the jewel's color AT ALL. But, as you say, the story is what we want to find out about!

      You're very welcome for my visit to your blog! Thanks for commenting back, and I hope you have a fabulous week, too!! :)
