Last year, I read both Graceling and Fire by Kristin Cashore, and I was blown away by these amazing stories. When I learned that a third book based on the character Bitterblue was in the works, I was thrilled, so I waited for news of its release. And I waited. And waited. And waited some more. Finally, thanks to Bookshelves of Doom, I received some much anticipated news yesterday. Not only does Bitterblue have a release date (May 1, 2012), it also has a cover! Check out the coolness below!
According to Kristin Cashore’s blog post on the book release, both the cover color and keys have special significance. Apparently, this book takes place eight years after the conclusion of Graceling, and Bitterblue is the queen of Monsea. For more information about Bitterblue, you can also check out this article from Publishers Weekly.
I am so excited that I’ll finally get to read Bitterblue’s story! At an estimated 576 pages, I know this will be a hefty read, but I fully expect to devour it in no time. The wait is nearly over!
