without a doubt, this book deserves all the stars in the universe.

“You can defend your kingdom, or you can defend your people, Majesty. You don’t have the manpower to do both at once.”
“People are more important than land.”

Holy shit, this book may have taken me 57 years to read(okay, maybe 5 days) thanks to my lingering and unwanted flu, but this had me hooked from the very first page and I never wanted to put this down!
Someone save my soul because I'm low key dying right now.

I absolutely adored where this story was heading and the split stories between the past and present was just so damn good.
Like holy shit that ending like what the fuccckkk. I legitimately read that last sentence and felt utterly shooketh.
I'm still having heart palpitations right now and my palms are still perspiring profusely.

If you're yet to pick this book up, I highly suggest you do so, but please be mindful that this book depicts mental & physical abuse and rape. Although I thought those parts of the book were very important, it's also quite confronting and real.

Those topics aside, I think Queen Kelsea, the main protagonist is an utter ruthless bad-ass and I would give my left arm to meet her. Seriously.
I cannot wait to pick up The Fate of the Tearling and consume every inch of that story.

I love this series. It has become my very existence.

I know what you mean! I have so many books that I’ve read before I signed up to GR! So many have missed out on reviews hahah.

I can’t wait! I’m going to break it up with a few stand alone then pick up the last one! I’m so excited!
