The highly anticipated next book in the New York Times bestselling, award-winning Graceling Realm series, which has sold 1.3 million copies. For the past five years, Bitterblue has reigned as Queen of Monsea, heroically rebuilding her nation after her father's horrific rule. After learning about the land of Torla in the east, she sends envoys to the closest nation there: Winterkeep--a place where telepathic foxes bond with humans, and people fly across the sky in wondrous airships. But when the envoys never return, having drowned under suspicious circumstances, Bitterblue sets off for Winterkeep herself, along with her spy Hava and her trusted colleague Giddon. On the way, tragedy strikes again--a tragedy with devastating political and personal ramifications. Meanwhile, in Winterkeep, Lovisa Cavenda waits and watches, a fire inside her that is always hungry. The teenage daughter of two powerful politicians, she is the key to unlocking everything--but only if she's willing to transcend the person she's been all her life. *This audiobook includes a PDF containing a cast of characters.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With the action of Graceling, the political theater of Fire, and characters from Bitterblue, this title has something to offer all Cashore fans.” School Library Journal
“Delicately, inexorably plotted, this is a captivating novel of action and ideas…[and] Cashore achieves it largely through characterization.” Horn Book (starred review)
“[A] gripping tale of spies, romantic tension, and moral dilemmas…[A] magnificent addition to the series.” Shelf Awareness (starred review)
“Xanthe Elbrick, narrator of two other audiobooks in the Graceling Realm series, here uses tone, mood, and accents to distinguish characters and transition between settings…Elbrick subtly shifts between fantastical elements like tender, empathic sea creatures and telepathic foxes to realistic characters and situations…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
