Release date November 29, 2016 NO MAJOR SPOILERS Oh wow I d totally give the first 85% of this book 5 stars ALL the stars It was so incredibly good But then the last chapter made me want to chuck this series out a window and give it 2 stars So I m going with 4.5 stars overall.This was by far the best book in this trilogy I started this last night thinking I would just check out the first chapter and then I was finished by 2 a.m.There wasn t a single part of the story or any character I didn t ca [...]
14 Dec 16blog This book propped up the series for me What I would otherwise consider an okay, but could ve been better two star debut trilogy is now a solid three stars.The questions I addressed in my review of the previous two books, particularly concerning the powerful necklace where it came from, what exactly were its powers, and why it only worked for Kelsea, where thankfully answered by the end of this book The answers, although fairly exciting and contributive to the worldbuilding and over [...]
Alright, I d put off reading this for a long time, because I kept reading review after review about some sort of a wonky ending I loved both of the other books, and I just couldn t seem to bring myself to ruin it if Johansen decided to pull a Divergent on me, you know Ok, so this was the second time I d checked the book out from the library, and I almost let it go back againbut at the 11th hour I decided to grab my nuts just go for it.WHOA I m so glad I did Talk about an interesting ride This wa [...]
For me, I didn t like the ending at all I don t even know what to say I mean, I loved the first two books and there were parts of this book I REALLY loved Like what went on with the Red Queen, but there wasn t much of Pen or Fetch in it We do go back in time when Kelsea has her visions and see how it all started That part was kind of cool I m just not happy with the ending, that s all I got I m just not happy but I guess we can t win them all I am glad there are many out there that loved the who [...]
I AM SO ANGRY AND UPSET RIGHT NOW.2.5 stars.This series is so important to me, let me put that out there I am so invested in this world and have been waiting for this finally for a while.I have really enjoyed reading 80% of this novel IT WAS BRILLIANT BUT BUT BUT The last 20% has ruined it for me personally.Reason for such low score ENDING WAS A COP OUT SO MANY QUESTIONS LEFT OPEN IT ALL GOT WAY TO COMPLICATED IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME This last book was disjointed.i could literally cry.I LO [...]
1 The Queen of the Tearling 2 The Invasion of the Tearling This, I think, is the crux of evil in this world, Majesty those who feel entitled to anything they want, anything they can grab I honestly feel like I don t know how I feel about this series There is so much good in this series, and such a strong sense of feminism, which brings up a lot of important and not commonly discussed topics the need for birth control and women to be able to protect themselves, rape culture, child abuse, human tr [...]
Maybe it s a 3.5 but I can t decideI m so so so deeply sad right now This has been one of my all time favorite series and I think the first two books are masterpieces, but this one just stumbled and fell on the ending It could have ended any other way and I think I would have been happy, but this ending is one of my ultimate pet peeves in terms of fictional worlds It frustrates me like nothing else does and I can t get over it The rest of this book stands up with the series There are still new c [...]
I put a lot of pressure on the conclusions of series Most readers do Annnnnnnnd Erika Johansen did not disappoint and wove a beautiful 3rd book and ending to this series The Fate of the Tearling deserves 5 5 starsThe ending was a bit of a moment I honestly did not expect that ending There were things I wanted from the conclusion of this book that I did not get Yet I must remind myself that the book itself was astonishing It brought the best elements of the previous 2 books The ending, although n [...]
Maybe it s just me or maybe the author has just gotten better and better with each installment I had some slight issues with each one but as they came along, all my questions and concerns got resolved Was I slightly annoyed at just how strong the young queen became, so quickly Maybe But practically everything else that happened in the tale supported the conceit and all the other characters drew me in, and in the second book all those concerns went away as I was drawn into the visions of the past [...]
well, that was not what i expected but i loved it nonethelessre to come later, maybe DEAR WORLD I NEED THIS.WHY DON T I HAVE IT YETE WORLD IS UNFAIRLLLLL THE GRABBYHANDS ALL OF THEM.
The Fate of the Tearling ties up the series nicely All questions of the founding of Tearling, the shadow and Mort are answered.And we also learn all of the secrets of the Fetch Finally For three long centuries William Tear s dream sunk further and further into the mire No one in the Tearling could even see Tear s better world any longer, let alone muster the courage to dig for it pg 6, ebook.The path isn t easy Kelsea questions herself every step of the way Maybe we aren t capable of being satis [...]
2 stars Just know that I gave 5 stars to the other books of this trilogy, so WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH ERIKA JOHANSEN If you follow me usually you must know by now that I always try to be constructive in my reviews Even when I did not like a book Fortunately it does not happen often Either I m pretty easy to please either I choose my reads wisely, take your pick.But right now, I m so fuming mad it will be really difficult to tame my anger and try to write something that could be us [...]
3.5 STUPEFYING STARS Hatred is easy, and lazy to boot It s love that demands effort, love that exacts a price from each of us FUCK NO I refuse to believe this THAT was the big revelation after 2 entire books and 400 pages of building up my anticipation No Just no I will never forgive you for this, Erika Johansen That entire last chapter was such a big letdown, I m left speechless That chapter just never should ve happened, honestly I was so prepared to give this book 5 stars after that immense b [...]
Original Review on BitchyFantasy bitchyfantasy.wordpress 2 Spoilers for the whole trilogy Seriously, spoilers This has been the weekend of great cultural experiences I finished The Fate of the Tearling, and I saw La La Land I ve been through an emotional roller coaster with both, so I don t know if my review will make much sense Honestly, my reviews never make sense, but I like to imagine they are endearing Both book and film took me to another plane of human existence, and I will forever be gra [...]
Actually me upon finishing this book All those writings and quotes from the first book that foreshadowed the greatness of the Glynn Queen the woman who saved and revitalized the world That was bullshit What even was the point of this series I ve been furiously angry about the ending of books plenty of times before, but at least they were endings to the same story I started reading This isn t even that This is Johansen either not knowing or not caring about figuring out how to get her story to th [...]

Lady, if you don t wake up, I m going to have you baptized In spite of the love I bear to the first two installments in this series, I almost didn t read this book Right after finishing the second one, I voluntarily got myself a spoiler of the ending and didn t like it at all and so, a story I used to love acquired kind of a sour taste But as the bitterness went away, my adoration for this world remained ultimately untouched, and now here I am I am so glad I didn t give up I will always think of [...]
1.5 5 StarsThe first 92% of this book was amazing There were parts I was unsure about, but over all it was a 3, perhaps even 4 star book Then that last chapter happened and I have NEVER been disappointed in my entire life That was not an ending, that was just the easy way out I have never hated an ending than I hate this one, and I now feel like giving it two stars is being generous Urgh I wish I didn t waste my time with that ending Maybe I ll post a detailed review later.
This book doesn t even have a title yet but I know it will outshine the two before it It will be amazing
I loved the series but the ending seemed like an anti climax after such a big build up
Would you expect any less Wow.
The series is worth reading my heart aches at the ending, but I am content now but i wasn t sure initially about how the story line wrapped up The writing is clear even if the plot isn t always straightforward but all in all i loved it.
This one GIF sums up everything I m feeling about this novel10 28 15 There s a title ANDa synopsis
It wasn t bad but had a different feel to it than book one and two I really loved book one It was so awesome Book two was good also and added new characters that were great to read about but this one added new characters which was not an issue and just took a different turn than most would expect The ending was alright but not as great as I expected after falling in love with book one Overall, it was an intriguing trilogy with some incredible world building and fascinating characters I am glad [...]

WHAT THE STUPID HELL She should have made us wait even longer for this book so she could come up with a proper ending befitting the entire story that came before this Stupid This is so stupid I was enjoying myself so much You can see the story arc leading up to some weird possibility of this ending, but I spent the last 30% of the book trying to think of other routes it could take ANY ending would have been better I would have been happier if she had pulled a Veronica Roth and just killed her of [...]
EDIT 8 February 2018It s been 5 fucking day s and i m still thinking about this book My god, someone save me.4 5 starsCan you hear that It s the sound of my heart being ripped from my chestIf you want to feel pain so great you feel like you re going to crumble into tiny fragments, just read this series The butterfly effect deals in the tendency of infinitesimal variations to amplify over time You never play around with history, because the change you thought you were making for the better is lik [...]
4 stelline e non 5 solo perch il secondo libro di questa trilogia resta il mio preferito.Ho amato molto questo ultimo capitolo, e penso che sia una degna conclusione Kelsea resta la mia preferita, insieme a Lazarus Ho apprezzato molto anche Lily e Katie ed ho adorato leggere del passato dei Tear Ci sono alcune incongruenze di tempistiche pi che altro e colpi di scena che mi hanno fatta arrabbiare, ma non ne ho dato molto conto visto il finale Mi mancheranno, ma sono contenta di come sia andata a [...]
That Fuh lipping Ending That style of ending just so happens to tap into one of my biggest personal pet peeves with storytelling tactics THE GOOD1 This book is the definition of broken and flawed characters Every one Buh roken and flawed 2 Phenomeal writing Strongly disagree with it being shelved or marketed as Young Adult because there is a heckuva lot of violence and language and mature themesbut boy, oh boy, was it terrifically mature writing.3 Fantastic maturation of our secondary characters [...]
