On her nineteenth birthday, Kelsea Raleigh must come out of hiding. As the rightful queen of the Tearling Empire, she faces assassination attempts from her enemies and cruel judgment from her assigned guards on her journey to the keep. Kelsea must learn to govern a kingdom of people that she is only beginning to understand, and she must do so while surviving the Red Queen of Mortmesne’s jealous wrath. This book is the exciting start to an epic trilogy. Plus, rumors are that our very own Hermione Granger, Emma Watson, is set to produce and star in a film adaptation in the coming years.
