    Captivating but gruesome

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was a random pick and I certainly didn't know what I was getting into when I bought it. It was captivating, the characters well developed, and the story perfectly structured. I am a wimp when it comes to anything about children being harmed or mentions of rape. And there was a little too much mother harm for my liking. So I had to skim a lot of those parts but otherwise I loved it.

    Addictive read

    Do you love strong female characters, castles, fairy tales and well written dialogue? This book is for you. Kelsea, like Sleeping Beauty, is taken away to be hidden in a cottage in the woods for her safety. Her mother was Queen Elyssa, a sub par ruler. Kelsea has been hidden from The Red Queen (Alice in Wonderland reference?) but now must go to her kingdom and save it. Brilliantly written, with characters so vivid you will feel you know them. Mysteries are revealed as the plot thickens and a strange magic permeates it all.

    Queen of the Tearling

    Excellent 1st book and new author. I want to read more of her books. I felt connected to the characters. I enjoyed the story but was left wanting more background. I feel like I started a story halfway through. Maybe that's intentional. If so, I will be 1st in line to read the beginning and end. This feels like a middle. Cheers to this new author I admire greatly any person who can make fantasy feel real and ms. Johansen does this admirably!

    Hunger Games crossed with Game of Thrones

    I was pretty excited to read this book because the protagonist has the same name as me. However, while this book feels like a cross between The Hunger Games and the Game of Thrones series at times, I didn't enjoy the novel as much as I was hoping - the characters were pretty flat, the plot not particularly compelling, and the world-building confusing. Kelsea herself admirably fights for the rights of women and social justice causes on her journey to queendom, but sometimes she feels a little too self-insert to be interesting. Despite these complaints, I enjoyed the novel and look forward to the next one.

    Awesome Read!

    Great book, very well written. The characters can be likable and not at the same time...the hallmark of good writing. I am still left with questions, trying to guess what will happen next. Can't wait for the sequel!
