I have been waiting sooooo long for this book!!! I finally got my hands on it. Here is the goodreads description:
I love revisiting the world that Cashore has created. And I really loved the little illustrations in this book. The maps... and the section pictures. This story is extremely long though. I was very surprised how long it was. There was way too much going on. Sometimes I was confused.
I know that this book is supposed to be able to be read as a stand alone but I would not recommend that. You should for sure read the other books first. I just feel like the reader will lose some of who's who if they skip the other two. Also... it had been soooo long since I read Graceling and Fire that I had forgotten a lot about what happened in those books and had to wikipedia them.
This book goes in depth about figuring out Leck and what he did to his people. But I hated how much Bitterblue was pushing everyone. She would not let up!! Eventually we are introduced to one of my most favorite characters Death and his cat. I really loved him. The covers for this series are beautiful!! I am having trouble getting the pics next to each other. I have been trying to find a program out there that can put several pictures into one JPEG. Can anyone help me??
