Blurbs for The Bitter Kingdom!



I am so, so pleased to finally be able to share a couple of amazing blurbs for The Bitter Kingdom, the third and final book of the Fire and Thorns trilogy, which will be released on August 27, 2013.

“What’s a blurb?” you ask. It’s when someone Important or Influential reads something and likes it enough to say an Official Nice Thing about it. Like an endorsement. Except not paid. Unless you count undying gratitude as currency. Which I do.

Anyway, two authors whom I respect immensely, both as writers and human beings, have said Official Nice Things about The Bitter Kingdom, and here they are:

“What a conclusion to a spellbinding trilogy! The Bitter Kingdom cements Rae Carson as one of the best fantasy authors to grace the shelves. I love this series to pieces, and so should you.”

 – Marie Lu, New York Times best-selling author of the Legend trilogy

“The perfect conclusion to one of the most brilliant modern YA fantasies on the market today. Readers will love this whole series, and while I didn’t want to leave Elisa’s world, The Bitter Kingdom hits all the right notes. This is YA fantasy as it should be.”

– Beth Revis, NewYork Times best-selling author of the Across the Universe trilogy

Aaaahh!!! *flail* Marie Lu and Beth Revis!!! I’m so excited and grateful and blown away. Thank you so much, ladies.

To celebrate, my publisher will be giving away an advance copy or two of The Bitter Kingdom tomorrow. Stay tuned…
