Here is a book I have been waiting for since 2009. It you haven't read any for Kristin Cashore's books you should pick them up as soon as possible. Bitterblue is due out May 1st so you should be able to fit Graceling and Fire in before then. This is one of the best YA authors I have encountered in the past years. If you give her a chance, I know you'll fall in love too.
