Bitterblue is now queen of Monsea, still under the influence of her father Leck, a violent psychopath who altered minds. Her advisers want to pardon evildoers and forget everything, but she sees the past holds fast. Two thieves, who only steal what has been stolen, hold the truth and change her life. One, his Grace skill unidentified, has a key to her heart.Why: While it has been a couple years since I last read Graceling and Fire, I quite interested to see how Kristin Cashore ends her epic fantasy series. I'll probably end up borrowing this from the library before I get to buy it, but either way, I cannot wait to read Bitterblue.
