一個集體記憶被扭曲的國度

一個尋找真相與走出傷痛的奇幻故事。
 
  在這個由七王國組成的奇幻時空,
  少數人擁有超乎常人的神奇稟賦,人稱「恩典」。
  孟汐王列克的恩典,是以語言操控他人,讓人們相信他的謊言。
  他焚毀書籍、扭曲歷史、不讓人民識字。他以此恩典控制他的王國。
  列克亡故後,年僅十歲的碧塔藍繼位成為女王,
  八年後,她原以為列克對王國的負面影響已隨時間淡去,
  但某一晚她偷溜出王宮,才漸漸發現,她的王國並不如她所想像。
  這個國家,所有人都不對勁。
 
  在王城內,列克的種種是眾人絕口不提的禁忌,
  而在王城外,他的故事卻是夜晚說書館最熱門的話題。
  她身邊的大臣們,一被觸及前朝創痛就情緒崩潰,
  擁有過目不忘恩典的圖書館員,日復一日默寫還原著被焚毀的書籍……
 
  而她在說書館認識的兩個年輕人……
  一個印刷店老闆,夢想著完成一本《真相之書》,還原王國被扭曲的記憶;
  另一個則意圖不明的跑去偷盜王城城牆上的石像鬼。
  他們教人們識字、用文字記錄傳統、尋找失蹤人口與失物,
  卻不斷遭到神秘勢力的獵殺……
 
  事實上整座王城,依然隱藏著許多列克王留下的祕密,
  充滿狂想的藝術品、隱藏各式密碼的彩色都城、滿佈密道與暗房的王宮,
  絕版的書籍,父王的暗號,母親的刺繡,童年時的故事書,原來都是以密碼記載的歷史。
  在這個依然被怪物陰影籠罩的世界,
  她必須從中一點一滴拼湊出事情的真相,並且設法讓王國的傷痛癒合……

Enter the Graceling Realm and let it work its magic in this unforgettable novel from New York Times bestselling author Kristin Cashore.
When Queen Bitterblue took the throne of Monsea, she was a child, and her advisers ran the kngdom for her. Now she is beginning to question their decisions, especially how they handle the legacy of her father Leck, who who ruled through his Grace--a special talent for mind-altering--and his taste for darkness and violence. Bitterblue needs to know Monsea's past to lead it into the future, so she begins exploring the city sreets at night, disguised and alone. As she does, she meets two thieves, who hold a key to the truth of Leck's reign. And one of them, with a Grace that he hasn't yet identified, holds a key to her heart.

Bitterblue is a gateway to the Graceling Realm that braids together magic, memory, and romance.
