Graceling

graceling2

Holy crap this book was amazing! I was so hooked and hated to put it down. Graceling has done what only one or two other books have achieved this past year: worked its way to my Top 10 List!

Katsa is born with one green eye and one blue eye. In this world of seven kingdoms, when a child is born with two different colored eyes they are Graced. The Grace is different for each person. For Katsa, she is Graced with being an expert killer (not a well received Grace eh?) Her uncle, the king, uses her to kill and torture those who’ve wronged or angered him, or just to make an example of people.

While out on a mission, Katsa meets Po, a Graced prince from a far kingdom. She never expected her life to change from meeting him, nor does she expect to learn truths about her Grace.

A horrible secret is discovered about a King of another kingdom. This secret could destroy all seven kingdoms. Katsa must do everything in her Grace to make sure it doesn’t happen.

Along the way, everything she knows about herself changes.

If you liked Hunger Games, I think you’ll like this book, and vice versa.
