The Bitter Kingdom

The Bitter Kingdom - Rae Carson 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 what YA fantasy should be.
