“Cashore's third book is full of intrigue, conspiracies, and secrets. Queen Bitterblue's rule is shadowed by her father's legacy of pain, fear, and torture. Believing that the only way to restore her kingdom is to face the past, Bitterblue delves into forgotten histories, stories, and altered memories in her search for answers. Deliciously thrilling and full of twists and turns -- plus a little romance, of course!”
