Graceling is about a realm of 7 kingdoms that each hosts a king, who is fighting to keep on his thrones. Instead of using regular armies, they will use gracelings, people graced with different abilities. Now, Kasta is graced with killing. She discovered her gift when she was 8 and killed a grown man by accident, from giving him a blow he would never wake up from. Since then, the king Randa has used her as his personal thug.Then, one night on a rescue mission, Kasta runs into a Liened Prince Greening (aka Po). They become friends and help each other in all sorts of ways.
Graceling is a beautifully written book, a unique story you won’t stop reading until it’s over. It is a fantastic fantasy book for young adults, and for people looking for a swing of adventure and love. The plot of the book is so exotic it has made it to my top 3 in my booklist! If you enjoy this book, you could have even more adventures of this fairytale land, one you will never reach except through Kristin Cashore’s trilogy, Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue.
