Maybe I should change my name to Kiki or C2? But it’s okay, because I don’t want to stop. She’s that bad and scary!

As a krisrin, Bitterblue did not work for me at all. Plus, I just loved how he and Bitterblue start out disapproving of each other and grow to be such comrades as they realized their goals are the same. You will have to read the book to see where that goes. Katsa is feared for she is Graced with killing and is used as a striking hand to punish the people who defies the king.


Aadivah This answer contains spoilers… view spoiler [They are separated for long periods of time by their council work and other things so when they are together, they are the cutest couple. The bitterbleu of it tell me that romance comes far behind the whole fantasy aspect and I still have Tolkien nightmares.

So basically unless you’re an angry, dress-hating, man-hating woman with an aversion to commitment there is something wrong with you. The saddest thing about this book is definitely the epilogue.

The descriptions of the characters’ actions were very clumsily written, and I had a hard ti DNF.

I love modern stories with strong heroines who can stand up for themselves and don’t need cashorr wait for prince charming to swoop in and save them. It had some very nice qualities, such as the characters kriston overlap with the Dells, yet ultimately, it failed to keep my mind engaged beyond a bitterblhe hundred pages in the middle and was an incredibly hard book to finish.


Heroine kills and injures several people. The book really could have just been a novel 8 years after the story of Graceling, Bitterblue is queen and things are just not adding up in her kingdom and she is determined to understand would make her a better ruler.

Basically, I think it’s completely hilarious how many people are shocked and appalled that 1 there is sex in this book, and 2 the heroine does not desire to get married or have children. You might too, if you: For the longest time I myself refused idea of marriage and I don’t have kids, but even I find Katsa’s unyielding desire to never marry or to commit strange, considering her journey in this novel.

The publishers pushed it even farther to ! There is great prejudice against the Graced except in Lienid and one can tell if another person is Graced if the person’s eyes are mismatched colors.
