FINALLY! The (VERY) long awaited cover of Cashore's Bitterblue has been released! The book was originally scheduled to be released in April 2011, however it was then postponed until September of 2011. The release date has again been delayed until May 1st, 2012. For fans of Kristin Cashore's Graceling, and Fire, Bitterblue will be a companion novel tying the afore mentioned books together.
Tidbit from Cashore's blog:
"Book 3, tentatively titled Bitterblue and currently in progress, is a companion book to both Graceling and Fire and takes place in the seven kingdoms eight years after Graceling. Bitterblue will tie all three books together in some way. Bitterblue is the sixteen-year-old protagonist, and Katsa, Po, Giddon, Helda, and other characters from Graceling will be part of the fabric of the book. Plenty of fighting still to come!"
