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.
Annotation:
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.

Praise

"[D]evotees of the earlier books and fans of Megan Whalen Turner's intricate political fantasies will relish this novel of palace intrigue." (starred review) 04/02/2012

"Some authors can tell a good story; some can write well. Cashore is one of the rare novelists who do both. Thrillingly imagined and beautifully executed, BITTERBLUE stands as a splendid contribution in a long literary tradition." - Gretchen Rubin 05/12/2012

"Cashore's characters may inhabit a land where bizarre superhuman powers are common, but it's her down-to-earth interest in how people work that captivates." - Sonja Bolle 06/24/2012

"Cashore's imagined world is brilliantly detailed and brimming with vibrant and dynamic characters." 04/01/2012
