Last year, I returned to the 'Graceling Realm' world and didn't understand the series's second installment. After finishing 'Bitterblue,' I understand it, and I am very fond of it. I am also glad to read about old beloved characters as Bitterblue, Katza, Po, and even Fire.
We know that Leck was an awful king to his kingdom, people, and most unbelievable to his own wife and daughter. In the third installment, Bitterblue has to rule a kingdom suffering for thirty-five years of her father's ruling and rebuild and fix everything. Bitterblue doesn't know who she can trust and who she shouldn't.
The characters in this world, particularly this book, are.. something else. Not perfect, no, and complicated, stubborn and bratty and self-sacrificing, so many things. But they are so much themselves, in their choices, their mistakes, their tragedies, in their missteps even with one another, I cannot help but love them.

Potential Triggers (that I'm aware of): Mentions of torture and rape. Injury/violence. Suicide and thoughts or suicide. Dead parents (before the novel) and some grief. ( )

TW: Rape, suicide, child abuse, animal abuse, torture

The conclusion to the Graceling Realm trilogy. I've been impressed with how the trilogy handled each book - each stands on its own merit and there's no nonsense cliffhangers or overly-drawn out plotlines to force it into a trilogy format. Because of this, its not absolutely necessary to read this book if you already read the other two....but because of this, Bitterblue is good enough that you should read it anyway.

I want to start with the extreme content. This is a novel about dealing with your demons, confronting your memories, and figuring out who you are. For the characters, this means a lot of heinous, evil events - Bitterblue's father was both a mind rapist and 'regular' rapist, a torturer of adults, children, and animals, and a murderer. While he is dead and gone, his impact lingers - both his sycophants and victims abound in court and both groups are trying to manipulate Bitterblue, to the detriment of the kingdom. The book never, ever goes into explicit detail. Its not Saw: The Novel. But that doesn't make it any less horrifying. If anything, like with true horror, the snippets you DO get ("He was curious if the Graceling's power was in the eyes...) spin up even worse in your imagination as you fill in the blanks. While I agree its necessary for plot and characterization, and I admit its well done....its not an easy read in those moments.

The book has 3 distinct acts or arcs. The first involves Bitterblue sneaking out into the city to learn more. This part was perhaps the weakest as it is doing a lot of setup and relies the heaviest on fantasy tropes. The second arc involves the theft of the crown and the discovery of the encrypted journals. This might seem like two separate arcs, but they are linked heavily in theme and symbolism. Its much stronger, but the pacing slows considerably and would have benefited from tightening up. The final, shortest arc is the rapid resolution of the stolen crown and encrypted journals, and the introduction of Fire and other folk of the Dells. This last felt a tad like a victory lap - its not a perfect and idyll epilogue the way of Harry Potter, but its definitely a 'mostly happily and functional ever after.' Which I'm fine with - it was fucking earned.

There is romance in this, and what could be thought of in the most generous case as a love triangle, but its a background note, not the focus of the novel. Bitterblue doesn't obsess over romance or marriage, and develops a host of personal relationships over the novel. While the one with Saf was sweet and realistic, even when they argue/fight, the one that got to me the most was between her and Death. It evolved so expertly from antagonistic and distant to a caring, respectful alliance. There's so little angst its hard to believe this is a young adult novel.

Its not perfect, but its pretty damn good. ( )

Was recommended by a friend. Have not read the first two, just this one and I really enjoyed it! There were some parts that were like, all right wrap it up. Nonetheless, entertaining and nice fantasy world ( )
