This is a book I've been waiting for for literally years. I loved Graceling SO much that the time has dragged by waiting for this. Other fans of Kristin Cashore will feel the same, I am sure! Early reports on Bitterblue have been fantastic, so I am really looking forward to digging into my ARC when it gets here... *stalks the mailbox* Check out the Reading Lark review on the 19th April.
Info from Goodreads
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.
