Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Title: Graceling

Author: Kristin Cashore

Published: Harcourt, 2008

Pages: 471

Summary: 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.

Review: I'm more of a science fiction fan but occasionally I enjoy a bit of fantasy.  I started out reading Graceling for a change and it started out a bit slow and I wasn't all that interested in it.  I wanted to give up but Rebecca, who adores this book, told me that I should keep going to give it a chance.  I'm glad she told me to because with Graceling the more I read of it the better it became.
The whole idea of Graces is something new and unexplored within the fantasy world and it just happens to be fascinating.
I loved Katsa and I loved Po.  I even loved Bitterblue.
Graceling is just a really awesome book and I think that everyone should read it at least once.
