Book Recommendation - Graceling

By Kristin Cashore

Here's the cover blurb: "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."

I was blown away by this book. Sucked right into Katsa's journey and struggles in a way I haven't experienced in a long time. This book isn't as intense as The Hunger Games, but it has a magic all of its own. It's a love story and a story of acceptance, of coming to peace with yourself.

It was an excellent read with astonishing world building. Kristin gives you just enough description to form the world in your mind without overloading you, which I love. I don't like to be overwhelmed with descriptions.

Verdict: Read it, you won't regret it.
