Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Published: Orlando : Harcourt, 2008
In a world where some people are born with extreme and often-feared skills called Graces, Katsa struggles for redemption from her own horrifying Grace, the Grace of killing, and teams up with another young fighter to save their land from a corrupt king.
It took me a long time to read Graceling but I can tell you that it was definitely not time wasted. Graceling has got to be one of the best books I have read all year.
It is one of those books that have everything, action, drama, mystery, suspense, romance, and of course the biggest thing of all is the fantasy element.
I love fantasy and this book is definitely the perfect book for fantasy fans.
The characters were all really cool. I loved watching Katsa change throughout the book. I also loved Po, he is definitely one cool guy.
I loved the idea of some people having Graces. It's good to find out about the different people's Graces.
Overall, this book is completely perfect. The whole time I was reading Graceling I was thinking wow, Kristin Cashore is on the same page as Tamora Pierce when it comes to fantasy heroines.
With Graceling, I laughed, I got angry and there were times I felt like I wanted to cry. This book is definitely one you should read.
I recommend this to everybody, especially fans of fantasy. I guarantee that you will definitely love it.
