Publisher: Dial

Summary (from Goodreads):
Eight years have passed since the young Princess Bitterblue, and her country, were saved from the vicious King Leck. Now Bitterblue is the queen of Monsea, and her land is at peace.

But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisers, who have run the country on her behalf since Leck's death, believe in a forward-thinking plan: to pardon all of those who committed terrible acts during Leck's reign; and to forget every dark event that ever happened. Monsea's past has become shrouded in mystery, and it's only when Bitterblue begins sneaking out of her castle - curious, disguised and alone - to walk the streets of her own city, that she begins to realise the truth. Her kingdom has been under the thirty-five-year long spell of a madman, and now their only chance to move forward is to revisit the past.
Whatever that past holds.
Two thieves, who have sworn only to steal what has already been stolen, change her life forever. They hold a key to the truth of Leck's reign. And one of them, who possesses an unidentified Grace, may also hold a key to her heart...

Can you guys believe that the long-awaited release of Kristin Cashore's Bitterblue is almost here? Just think, in a few more months, we can all finally get our hands on a copy! I'm so excited for the release of the book! There's definitely not enough YA fantasy available to read that can match the awesomeness of The Seven Kingdoms novels. I've already re-read Graceling and finally got to reading Fire in anticipation for Bitterblue
