Queen Bitterblue must heal a broken kingdom still suffering from the cruel, twisted reign of her late father, King Leck. Flanked by seemingly untrustworthy advisers and a messy Queen Guard, Bitterblue soon finds out that some people will kill to hide the truth of Leck’s rule, and that alliances are sometimes formed in the most unlikely of places.
Meticulously detailed and overwhelmingly brimming with characters, subplots, and betrayals, Bitterblue is intensely disturbing in some areas, heartwarming in others; overall, it’s an emotionally loaded novel that may be too weighty for some to power through to the end, especially when it comes to the translated ciphers. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon
