An early return of a beloved, groundbreaking series that transformed the fantasy market. This will be the shortest gap between books in the fourteen year history of the series.
Graceling: the Graphic Novel comes out in November. Expanding formats will grow the audience.
Winterkeep debuted on the NYT series list. The Graceling audience remains loyal.
A gripping story of betrayal and survival. Cashore twists her plot with characteristic daring, combining all the series’s beloved fantasy qualities with a riveting humans-against-nature story.
Cashore’s trademark unforgettable characters. Kristin’s heroic characters demonstrate the empathy, hope, and kindness that make readers want their stories to never end.
Political and social complexity. Bitterblue continues to evolve as a monarch while Hava forces her to confront the injustices that persist in Monsea.
The blue foxes are back. The telepathic blue foxes of Winterkeep play a key role in Seasparrow.
A new narrative style. Hava has been an important character lurking in the shadows since she was introduced in Bitterblue. In Seasparrow, she will be the series first-ever first-person narrator.
"I may be biased, as Cashore has been my self-proclaimed favorite author for over a decade, but this book quite literally made me sob at my desk at one moment, so longtime (and newer-to-the-series) fans will be extremely thrilled."—Buzzfeed
"Seasparrow is a cathartic story, one that allows its heroine to understand how much she’s been through and how much she needs....I hope there’s more Hava yet to come."—Molly Templeton for Tor.com
"Cashore never shies away from showing the charming mundanities of the everyday and the brutal realities of the harshness of wilderness and emotions as well as exploring how enduring trauma shapes a person and a kingdom.... A harrowing, rewarding tale of survival."—Kirkus Reviews
"Cashore's Graceling books have hit bestseller lists and kept readers fascinated for almost 15 years. This fifth installment promises the same."—Booklist Reviews
