Most of the reviews I’ve read that have been against Bitterblue being the main character, I have found that almost all of the readers feel this way because they want to know how Po and Katsa ended.

I know the book had more to do than just the romance, but it was disappointing how little he was in the book. I grew up in the countryside of northeastern Pennsylvania in a village with cows and barns and beautiful views from the top of the hill and all that good stuff.

She certainly made up for it.

Graceling fans, prepare to be conflicted. Graceling and Fire were among my favorite casnore about 5 years ago, but sadly I didn’t remember a lot about them when I started this one. The only thing I got from it was the extent of Leck’s evil doing. If they are going to leave me this distraught, ready to cry, then I’d rather not.

Audiobook Comments Read by Xanthe Elbrick and no complaints there! I truly wish my expectations had not been so high for this one. I love Queen Bitterblue so much!
