A sequel to Graceling, this book takes place 8 years later. Bitterblue has been queen of Monsea for some time, struggling to undo the evil that her father wrought throughout the country. Her duties seem to consist of mountains of paperwork, pardoning those influenced by Leck’s powers and the occasional appearance at court. Spending days at work, indoors with only her aging advisors around her, who seem to go blank mentally when she mentions her father, wears upon her. So she starts to sneak out and visit her city. She visits the amazing bridges her father had created. Underneath one, she finds a story room where there is warmth, drinks and stories are shared. It is there that she meets Saf and his friend Teddy, two thieves who only steal what is already stolen. As the queen learns about her city, she discovers strange things, puzzles that add to the questions she already has. It is this that she has to solve, if she is to be the queen she needs to be.
