Bitterblue  - Kristin Cashore, Ian Schoenherr The most complex one of the books of the trilogy and the one I probably enjoyed the most. I LOVED Bitterblue as a character, the numerous mysteries and riddles enfolding themselves and to be solved along each other... So many main and side characters I enjoyed! The writing was more fluid than in the other two books, and I savored the flow of the plot (which is artfully and inticrately woven). I just wish the love subplot had played out differently (Giddon, anyone?)
