Ocho años después de que la conociéramos en Graceling, nos reencontramos con Gravilla, ahora convertida en la reina Bitterblue de Monsea. Bitterblue es una monarca misericordiosa, pero no puede librarse de la influencia nefasta que su padre tuvo en ella en la infancia. Leck poseía la habilidad de alterar los pensamientos de todo aquel que tuviera cerca y eso lo convirtió en un psicópata. Los consejeros de Bitterblue, que han llevado las riendas del país mientras la Reina alcanzaba la mayoría de edad, creen que debería perdonar a todos aquellos que cometieron actos impensables durante el reinado de Leck y enterrar el pasado.Sin embargo, cuando Bitterblue comienza a salir disfrazada y oculta entre las sombras de la noche, se da cuenta del verdadero alcance que ha tenido en la población estar sujeta a las maquinaciones de un loco durante treinta y cinco años y de que la única manera de superar este largo y triste episodio es revisar el pasadoDos ladrones, que solo roban aquello que ha sido robado antes, cambiarán su vida para siempre: son ellos lo que poseen la llave de la verdad sobre el reinado de Leck. Y uno de ellos, poseedor de una gracia que todavía desconoce, también tendrá la llave del corazón de Bitterblue.

    Starred review from April 2, 2012
    When last seen, Bitterblue had been crowned queen of Monsea, after Katsa, the heroine of Graceling, killed her father, King Leck. (He had it coming.) Eight years have passed; Bitterblue, now 18, is in power, even as her counselors have attempted to sweep the wretched perversity of Leck’s reign under the rug. Bitterblue objects—not only because she thinks she needs to understand that history in order to lead but because she feels constrained by busy work that keeps her trapped in the castle. Spirited and frustrated, she dons a disguise, sneaks out, and quickly befriends a printer and a handsome thief. Complications, naturally, ensue. Her romance and growth into the role of queen are among the best parts of this sprawling story, which brings forward (but does not entirely resolve) plot strands from both Graceling and Fire. There are many pleasures—fans will welcome the return of Katsa and her lover, Po; Bitterblue’s court includes Death (rhymes with teeth), a dour librarian graced with the ability to read fast and remember every word. Once the narrative shifts from Bitterblue’s clandestine adventures in the city to her convalescence inside the castle, the story loses some steam, even as the sick nature of Leck’s abuses are unearthed. Nonetheless, devotees of the earlier books and fans of Megan Whalen Turner’s intricate political fantasies will relish this novel of palace intrigue. Ages 14–up.
