Return to Kristin Cashore's captivating Graceling Realm with a heart-wrenching tale set eight years after the events of Fire

Eight years have passed since the young Princess Bitterblue and her country were saved from the vicious King Leck. Now Bitterblue is the queen of Monsea, and her land is at peace.

But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisers, who have run the country on her behalf since Leck's death, believe in a forward-thinking plan: to pardon all of those who committed terrible acts during Leck's reign; and to forget every dark event that ever happened. Monsea's past has become shrouded in mystery, and it's only when Bitterblue begins sneaking out of her castle - curious, disguised and alone - to walk the streets of her own city, that she begins to realise the truth. Her kingdom has been under the thirty-five-year long spell of a madman, and now their only chance to move forward is to revisit the past.

Whatever that past holds.

Two thieves, who have sworn only to 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, who possesses an unidentified Grace, may also hold a key to her heart ...

Readers love Bitterblue:

'Bitterblue features a cast of well-written, compelling side characters, a hilarious appendix written by an actual character, a cast that is around 70% queer and 90% characters of colour, a f***ing glorious slow-burn mystery, a f***ing glorious character arc for a young woman in a tight space, and a narrative around colonialism that sticks out in my mind to this day. I cannot get past how much I adore this book' Goodreads reviewer, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

MEDIA REVIEWS

This is gorgeous storytelling: exciting, stirring, and accessible - SCHOOL JOURNALA WOW of a book. I HAD to know how it endedThere aren't enough words to describe how awesome this book is - ROMANTIC TIMESSome 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 - The New York Times Book ReviewBrilliantly detailed and brimming with vibrant and dynamic characters - SLJ, starred review of BitterblueThere are some books that stick with you for years, and Kristen Cashore's Fire is one of them. Thoughtful, steamy and completely original, Fire is YA fantasy at its absolute best - Sabaa Tahir, author of New York Times bestselling Ember in the Ashes on Fire

“Enjoyable”

I was disappointed after reading Fire as I found that book really hard to get into, but Kristin Cashore redeemed herself in this book. Like Graceling I found it hard to put down as I needed to know what was going to... More
