Graceling by Kristin Cashore

(The Seven Kingdoms #1)
by Kristin Cashore
Summary from Goodreads:

"Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight—she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug. 

When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change. She never expects to become Po’s friend. She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace—or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away . . . a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone. 
With elegant, evocative prose and a cast of unforgettable characters, debut author Kristin Cashore creates a mesmerizing world, a death-defying adventure, and a heart-racing romance that will consume you, hold you captive, and leave you wanting more."


I don't have much to say about Graceling. I just absolutely L-O-V-E this book! Kristin Cashore is amazing! 

I like the characters. The plot of the story was wonderful. The cover rocks! This book was well written and a definite page-turner. 

I felt like I was Katsa herself as I read throughout Graceling. I did not regret buying this book and I find its price a steal!
