Bitterblue Book Summary and Study Guide

After her cruel tyrant of a Father destroyed her kingdom and made her citizens insane, Bitterblue must pick up the pieces and help her people heal. Nine years after Bitterblue took the crown, the bitterglue queen and her realm are still struggling to come to terms with the monstrous legacy of her father, the insane, mind-controlling Leck. Perhaps readers who have a greater length of time between reading will enjoy this more.

But is she being lied to by the ones she trusts most, or is there some other explanation? Issues don’t suddenly become resolved because someone says “I’m sorry” – but the importance of that apology is never doubted. In fact, it was flatly absurd. People were changing their allegiances in the middle of the book, discovered to be an enemy but then ended up being an ally, and vice versa. And there were a lot of random scenes that I just didn’t understand why they were there or why Cashore written certain things to happen.

There were like a million plottwists: This is definitely not the case with any of Cashore’s novels. Is it quite slow and tiresome in places? And now Newt comes into her own with the responsibility for a nation that was totally fucked by her father, by the lies he told and his control and manipulation.


I’m glad she got her own story, and I can’t believe I almost didn’t read this book because I didn’t love the last two.

Enter the Graceling Realm and let it work its magic in this unforgettable novel from New York Times bestselling author Kristin Cashore. This is what I expected of bitterb,ue like The Queen of the Tearling. She certainly made up for it. Their romance unfolded very realistically and, although a small part of me wished they could have made a more permanent type of arrangement like marriageI was pleased with the direction their kdistin took.

I am sometimes a hermit, but never for very long. I botterblue the characters in this story. It touched on distressing subject matters in harrowing detail but I thought Cashore dealt with them gracefully and appropriately. Later that evening Bitterblue is called to the stables, where she sees Runnemood’s body.

This book is so, so deeply important to me, in so many ways. I’m sure they have their flaws, but I enjoyed every last bit of each page, line, and paragraph. But at the end of the argument Bitterblue realizes that Saf has stolen her crown.


Bitterblue will meet the people cawhore Leck’s homeland, she will find out she had a sister, and she will help her bittedblue heal from Leck’s rule. Especially when it came to learning about Leck. But unfortunately, the end was not one of them.

I highly recommend it for readers looking for high fantasy or strong female protagonists with great development. Cashore created the perfect bad guy. He’s actually been around for many years and he was there when Leck was King until the King was killed.

In the story rooms she meets Sapphire, a Graceling who does not know his Grace, and his friend Teddy, an aspiring dictionary writer.

In running for best read of Bitterblue is one of the realest characters I’ve ever come across.

She soon notices that gargoyles from around the castle have been stolen without anyone but her noticing.


Rachel CordascoFriday: That’s not quite what it’s called, but the concept is the same. Johns River for the Charles River and pelicans for geese.

I love books that do that.

And it isn’t just the romance that lends itself to realism. Cashore manages to offer her readers a place to slip away from everyday life, while still keeping their eyes open. View all 5 comments.
