Waiting on Wednesday : Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted at Breaking the Spine.

Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore

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

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.

Why I want to read it :

  • I enjoyed the author's writing style immensely in both Graceling and Fire
  • I want to know what happens to Katsa, Po and Bitterblue after the events in Graceling
  • Bitterblue sounds like she's going to grow up to be another extraordinary person
