The long-awaited companion to the New York Times bestsellers Graceling and 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 ...

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is gorgeous storytelling: exciting, stirring, and accessible - SCHOOL JOURNAL

A WOW of a book. I HAD to know how it ended

There aren't enough words to describe how awesome this book is - ROMANTIC TIMES

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 - The New York Times Book Review

Brilliantly detailed and brimming with vibrant and dynamic characters - SLJ, starred review of Bitterblue

There 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

“Deeply disappointed.”

I must say I have enjoyed ALL of Kristin Cashore's books greatly to the point that I would wish I could forget them and re read them again. Being a big fan of her Graceling Series I was beside myself with... More

“A book for everyone”

I've seen a lot of people, particularly of the younger generation, asking for books that are representative of real people and I believe this, and the other books by Kristin Cashore, are those books.

“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
