Title: Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)
Author: Kristin Cashore
Published Date: October 1st 2008
***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Kristin Cashore’s bestselling, award-winning fantasyGraceling tells the story of the vulnerable-yet-strong Katsa, a smart, beautiful teenager who lives in a world where selected people are given a Grace, a special talent that can be anything from dancing to swimming.
Katsa’s is killing. As the king’s niece, she is forced to use her extreme skills as his thug. Along the way, Katsa must learn to decipher the true nature of her Grace… and how to put it to good use. A thrilling, action-packed fantasy adventure (and steamy romance!) that will resonate deeply with adolescents trying to find their way in the world.
This ebook includes a sample chapter of BITTERBLUE.
I slept through this release. Why! I didn’t know of it, but I was doing a search on pinterest about books like Sarah J Maas and found out about the Graceling series. Looking on my YA shelf, I spied that I had all 3 in the series so I dove right in!!!
In this YA Fantasy, we meet Katsa, the King’s niece and his hit man (or his heavy). This is a task she is not thrilled about but seeing as her Grace (skill that she or any graceling excels in) is killing, her Uncle has strong armed her into the task. She has many reasons for staying. One she doesn’t know where else to go and of course her beloved cousin, Prince Raffin.
Then one day, out on a secret mission away from the King, she meets another Graceling, “graced” with fighting skills! Po soon changes her whole world!! Landscapes change and we meet more characters you will grow to love and some that you will just despise.
This book is multi-dementional, dynamic and an utter thrill to read. My emotions flooded me and I got the feels just like I did reading the Throne of Glass series!!
I can not tell you enough ~ ADD THIS BOOK TO YOUR TBR!!! 5 stars and a tip of my Nerd Girl hat.
