The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I took longer to read this than I would have preferred, but I wanted to give this novel proper attention instead of binge reading. I like the development that Kelsea can see Lily’s experiences. In the beginning I thought that this was unnecessary, but it wasn’t just that Kelsea had access to her thoughts, but also the fact that other things were changing for Kelsea. She’s dangerous and she’s cutthroat, and she is always in control and self-sacrificing. Kelsea is awesome. Full review on Around the World in 80 Books!
