Cover Reveal - Bitterblue (The Seven Realms AKA Graceling #3) by Kristin Cashore

Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
May 1st, 2012 from Dial

I saw this on PW today and here is lo down:

The novel, which has an announced first printing of 200,000 copies and clocks in at a hefty 576 pages, picks up eight years after Graceling,with Bitterblue now 18 and the reigning queen of Monsea. Cashore says the story constitutes more of a companion than a strict sequel. Graceling fans, however, will likely be thrilled to learn that the heroine of that book – the different-colored-eyed Katsa – returns in Bitterblue, as does her lover, Po.

Other characters from Graceling appear, too, most notably (and unavoidably, since he is Bitterblue’s father), the nefarious King Leck, the only character who appears in both Graceling and Fire.

DIES! I love the bit about the three keys and my mind is spinning trying to figure out what it could mean. I asked about this at ALA and they said...."It's coming." That was all I needed to hear. I am a huge fan of Graceling. I came to the story late, just this year. I listened to it on full-cast audio and it was amazing. One of my favorite audios ever! I'll be running towards the Penguin booth on the first day of ALAMid12!

  1. Yeah! I can't wait to read this one!

  2. I CANT WAIT TO READ THIS BOOK. ::deep breath:: I have been waiting so long!

  3. I can't wait. Just ordered Fire with my fall preorders. Her books get great cover art too.

  4. Awesome, I was starting to worry that they'd never publish it. :)

  5. OH WOW! I barely even look at cover reveals but I'm having palpitations right now because I was so so so scared they weren't going to put this book out! I'm SO EXCITED to see it, finally!


  6. OOOOOH! How exciting. I can't wait. :) Thanks for sharing.

  7. OH MY GOODNESS! I'm so excited! :D I can't wait to see more of Bitterblue, Katsa, and Po; it's been so long since Fire was published...

  8. Beautiful cover! I have not yet read Graceling, but my mom recommended to me and gave me a copy of it a few months back. I did not realized it had a sequel and now a third installment to its series. I'm excited and am going to bump it up on my to-read list. (As well as add the other two book to my list.)

  9. I'm in the middle of reading Graceling right now...well beginning yes I am in the beginning of reading Graceling right now so I am even later than you in getting into this series. I am enjoying it so far, I always love me some high fantasy. And I am happy that Bitterblue finally has a US cover because that means the UK cover can't be far behind right? Right? xD.

  11. Ooh, I'm so excited about this one as well! I've been waiting and waiting and waiting for what seems like years now. Anyhow, the cover is epic and I seriously can't wait to hear more about it. :)
