|The long-awaited companion to "Graceling" and "Fire." Eighteen-year-old Bitterblue, queen of Monsea, realizes her heavy responsibility and the futility of relying on advisors who surround her with lies as she tries to help her people to heal from the 35-year spell cast by her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities.|
Set several years after the events in GRACELING, Bitterblue is now queen of the kingdom of Monsea, and the evil King Leck is but a distant memory. Bitterblue struggles to cope with her responsibilities as a leader, but is overwhelmed by paperwork and curious about her aides' constant reassurance that the kingdom is at peace. However, something still seems to be amiss, and Bitterblue feels she must explore the city to know more. In disguise, the young queen discovers that all is not well and that Leck's pernicious influence remains, wrecking havoc on the populace. Her wanderings put her in the path of two thieves who are essential to the kingdom's survival, and they will help Bitterblue save Monsea before it's too late. This is the third book in the Seven Kingdoms series.
Customer Reviews of Bitterblue
Eight years after Graceling, Bitterblue is now queen of Monsea. But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisors, who have run things since Leck died, believe in a forward-thinking plan: Pardon all who committed terrible acts under Leck’s reign, and forget anything bad ever happened. But when Bitterblue begins sneaking outside the castle—disguised and alone—to walk the streets of her own city, she starts realizing that the kingdom has been under the thirty-five-year spell of a madman, and the only way to move forward is to revisit the past. Two thieves, who only steal what has already been stolen, change her life forever. They hold a key to the truth of Leck’s reign. And one of them, with an extreme skill called a Grace that he hasn’t yet identified, holds a key to her heart.
