I had such high hopes for this novel… I am sad to say I am disappointed with it. It started off well, and I thought it had a bright future as a favourite of mine. And that quickly changed. I didn’t feel any attachment to any of the characters, I didn’t care about their fate’s and I didn’t really get any threat from the Red Queen despite her being described as a huge threat!
I won’t say it’s not worth the read, because I did enjoy it when I started it. I really did think that I was going to enjoy the novel, but for me it just fell flat! I found myself just bored during the last 20% of the novel. Not only that, but I did think that it picked up! I posted an update saying that overall I was excited to see how the story ended and what the next would have install… and not 2% later I had changed my mind completely and was bored again.
Don’t take my word for it. Read The Queen of the Tearling, go into it with an open mind. Because who knows, you might find something that actually speaks to you, you might enjoy it. But it wasn’t for me.
