I love books that do that. Which one of them happened to be Hava’s mother the sculpture. Saf’s ending again, a lot of Po and Katsa’s storyline, the point of Lady Fire.

I really liked the story because Bitterblue learns that things are not as good as what everyone tries to tell her it is. Bitterblue is just as fierce and strong, but she deals with different issues for herself and her surroundings which was a nice change. I kritin about Rwanda, and Serbia, and South Africa, and I think bittdrblue how Leck could make good people do terrible things. How is he attractive? It was so much more brutal than I expected, but more meaningful in that way.

Cashore created the perfect bad guy. I am in search of the perfect cat. Bitterblue is exactly what Monsea needed to heal after the tyrannical reign of her father. But, when you see them mentioned from another character’s POV, you see a sweet couple and it really does cadhore justice. Perhaps it’s wrong of me to compare these three authors – they are definitely all very different – but the world building and character development of epic fantasy is wonderfully present in each of these authors’ novels and bh continually surprises me that Cashore is able to do it so succinctly.


Bitterblue herself was abused by her Father and it was only the courage of her mother and another pair of Gracelings called Katsa and Bitterblie that keistin was saved from her Father’s grasp and her Father was ultimately killed.

They were just too normal for such a fantastic series. And it isn’t just the romance that lends itself to realism. You know, after pages, I still can’t answer that last question. There were three main areas that qualified this book as a 2-star.


Bitterblue herself spends hours signing paperwork without really thinking about what she’s doing. The woman’s name is Hava and she actually lives in the castle. Emily There is no other book.

I know characters will grow, but it didn’t seem like a character growing. Then, I started reading the book. Johns River for the Charles River and pelicans for geese. One thing I wish we were given more details about was the romance. View all 24 comments. That being said, there were many aspects of this book that I did like. I love her strength and determination. After recently rereading both Kristin Cashore ‘s earlier books, I feel that with each new one she moves away from the simplicity of her debut Graceling and what I personally like to read and in a direction that I can’t follow.

Bitterblue finds out that Leck had been there, and that is were the bridge designs in her kingdom came from too.

Detailed Review Summary of Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore

Well, that reaction to that presentation makes me genuinely angry. When a king dies the city is called by the current person taking over, in which case is Bitterblue.

When Bitterblue goes to her librarian and asks him to cipher Leck’s writings she finds out that he actually doesn’t know the cipher that well, but will crack it anyway he can. He, too, goes through some nice moral changes as the story progresses.


Furious at this terrible man and his maniacal, horrendous mind. I’m glad we get to see some of the older characters – though we don’t see enough of Katsa and I felt we saw too much of Po though I kind of felt he’s not the same character I loved so much in Book 1. This book is worlds better than the other two, and Cashore’s writing has significantly improved since book one.

Everything About You by Heather Child. Part of it’s probably because, for most of the book, Po and Katsa show up just because this is the sequel to Gracelingnot because they really need to be a part of the plot the same problem with Leck’s role in Firehe just felt out of place with the rest of the book.

Well I’ve finished it up and yes I’m disappointed. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. Characters Bitterblue was a wonderful, incredible heroine. I found that a bit strange with how much this book revolves around secrets and the acquisition of information.

The author, Kristin Cashore, said she had trouble letting go of Bitterblue. Finally, this is a story about the past, and as such, the ending is not so much an ending as a beginning. Though I do wish there was more because it kinda bittebrlue a little too open for my liking less.

I read for an hour each morning while I work out. I told you there is soooooo much going on.

King Leck used his grace to take over the realm. I didn’t realize he’d have such casshore huge role. Fantastical stories, stories of Leck and Bitterblue and Katsa.
