This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In this riveting sequel to the national bestseller The Queen of the Tearling, the evil kingdom of Mortmesne invades the Tearling, with dire consequences for Kelsea and her realm.
With each passing day, Kelsea Glynn is growing into her new responsibilities as Queen of the Tearling. By stopping the shipments of slaves to the neighboring kingdom of Mortmesne, she crossed the Red Queen, a brutal ruler whose power derives from dark magic, who is sending her fearsome army into the Tearling to take what is hers. And nothing can stop the invasion.
But as the Mort army draws ever closer, Kelsea develops a mysterious connection to a time before the Crossing, and she finds herself relying on a strange and possibly dangerous ally: a woman named Lily, fighting for her life in a world where being female can feel like a crime. The fate of the Tearling —and that of Kelsea’s own soul—may rest with Lily and her story, but Kelsea may not have enough time to find out.
In this dazzling sequel, Erika Johansen brings back favorite characters, including the Mace and the Red Queen, and introduces unforgettable new players, adding exciting layers to her multidimensional tale of magic, mystery, and a fierce young heroine.

Fantastic... Engrossing! This fantasy/ sci-fi hybrid is original and spectacularly written. Ms. Johansen writes characters instantly recognizable and surprising without cliche. And the flashbacks to before the Crossing adds great tension and interest. I devoured the first two books and cannot wait until the next.
Sorry, this sequel was a kind of a bust
I read the first book and thought it was pretty good. It held my attention throughout. But this sequel just didn't live up. Why did Johansen decide to make Kelsea turn pretty? I liked her better when she was ugly. Plus really, the magical stuff just gets ridiculous after a while. If someone has magical powers , they can always invoke magic to beat their enemies. Don't bother with this sequel.
I loved this book. The suspense was very amazing. There were so many things that shocked me and intrigued me like the Red Queen is related to Kelsea. When Pen and Kelsea had sex 😮😮😮 Love. I still can't wait for the next one, I need to know who Kelsea's father is. In the book it said it was a Tear descendent, so it could be William Tear. I hope that Lily gets to see her sister . I really want Pen and Kelsea to work. Can't wait for book 3
