Waiting On Wednesday: The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

     Happy Wednesday, party people! This is my first time joining the WoW fun! So very exciting for me! :) So for my first ever WoW, I am shining the spotlight on The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. Here's the Goodreads synopsis:

     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.

Eeeek I am so excited for this sequel!! I somehow didn't get around to reading The Queen of the Tearling until just this past month or so, which just seems silly to me in hindsight. But the good thing about waiting so long is that my wait for the sequel is that much shorter! The expected publication for The Invasion of the Tearling is 6/9/15, which is just around the corner.
