I know I say this about a lot of books. But this book was amazing. I loved Graceling and Fire, and didn’t really think she could do it again, but she did.

Bitterblue picks up eight years after Graceling, and hence the title, Bitterblue is queen of Bitterblue city. On the surface, everything looks perfect, but Bitterblue soon sees that the influence left by her psychopath father, Leck, is still strong in the city. In disguise, she goes into the city to hear the old stories of the time of her father in hopes that she will learn some valuable information. The story twists and turns as she learns more and more about the people that lived under her father and his reign. There is also the inclusion of Po, Katsa, and even a few characters from Fire. Read it and let me know your thoughts!
