i really hate that my first review is a negative one but i really need to share my feelings on this book. queen of the tearling is about kelsea a nineteen year old girl who has been in hiding for basically all her life and comes back to the tearling to claim her throne. kelsea arrives in the tearling to find it in really bad shape do to her mothers rule. her aim is to fix what her mother had done but it will not be easy because of all the people out to kill her including her uncle.
i felt as if this book is extremely over-hyped. it was very slow paced and i was bored most of the time, i had to force myself to finish this book. the characters in this book are well constructed but even this fact did not keep me interested. i loved kelsea because she is a strong young woman who wont let anything get in the way of what she wants to achieve. there was a hint of a romance but nothing really happens and i think that was one of my main issues with this book.
