About the Author


May 2012

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. 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 35-year spell of a madman, and the only way to move forward is to revisit the past.
