Graceling - Kristin Cashore Review of Graceling on my blog,Say It With BooksRating Graceling was really hard,I was torn between 4 and 5 stars and finally decided on 4 stars.In Katsa's world certain people had the Grace,something that's like a superpower(for the lack of a better term) sometimes the Grace was harmless sometimes it's quite the opposite.Basically what the Grace did was it took a normal skill and amplified it making it something that people admired and sometimes feared.The Gracelings could be identified by there mismatching eyes.Katsa,the protagonist is one such person and her uncle uses her Grace as a weapon.She hates herself for what she's capable of.Katsa is one of many favorite heroines-strong,witty,fierce and compassionate! “A monster that refused, sometimes, to behave like a monster. When a monster stopped behaving like a monster, did it stop being a monster? Did it become something else?”The world building was pretty good although it took a little while to get into the story at around 30% I was captivated.The action-packed plot,the great character development and the romance had me hooked.The rest of the characters Po,Bitterblue and Raffin were like-able.I loved Po with his silver and gold eyes-totally swoony! ;)Not many faults except maybe the ending felt a little rushed and Katsa was a little too anti-feminine(this added to the humor factor though).Overall I'd recommend it to anyone who likes feisty heroines,action and a little romance.Can't wait to get my hands on Fire and Bitterblue!“I'm not going to wear a red dress," she said."It would look stunning, My Lady," she called.She spoke to the bubbles gathered on the surface of the water. "If there's anyone I wish to stun at dinner, I'll hit him in the face.”
