it was amazing
bookshelves: to-read

Bitterblue is the companion novel to Kristin Cashore’s Graceling and Fire. Before I write more, you should know that it is paramount (in my opinion) that you read Graceling before Bitterblue. The structure of characters’ relationships and setting are based on a foundation built in Graceling. In Bitterblue, we read an intricately woven story that stands on Graceling‘s foundation and it’s strength holds these characters together when you think everything in their world should be crumbling!

I am extremely impressed with the maze of story lines that Cashore guides you through as you read. Biterblue is eight years older and working diligently to rebuild her kingdom after, her father, Leck’s treacherous reign. Like any young queen, Bitterblue struggles with who she is and what she wants to be. The entourage of advisors, old friends, and new friends help Bitterblue accept her past as well as face her future. I was so happy to read about Po, Katsa, and Giddon again. And, if you can believe it, I loved reading about new characters like Saf, Teddy, and Hava even more.

If you liked Graceling, you will love Bitterblue! And, if you haven’t read Graceling, you need to go out and get it, then go get Bitterblue on May 1, 2012! Bitterblue gets 5 books on the bookshelf! You can see a video review at http://bookshelfbanter.com/2012/02/07...
