Bitterblue from Graceling is all grown up, a queen with her own land to rule. Since she was ten, she has reigned over the kingdom of Monsea with the help of her father, King Leck’s, advisors. But she wonders about everything-her memories, her mother, her father, and what life is like outside the castle walls. Then, everything goes wrong, and it is up to her to fix it, especially when her crown is stolen. Every trail she follows leads back to her father, the one of whom her memories of are altered by her father’s Grace. She knows she must find out where her father came from and what he was, before it kills both her and her kingdom.
I loved this book, mainly for the depth of the plot-I won’t ruin it, but it’s AMAZING! I don’t think that you would have read Graceling and Fire to understand Bitterblue, as it does a good job of explaining itself. It truly is an enjoyable book for any reader.
