One Line Summary: Katsa kicks some major booty!
What a refreshing book! This is one of the best new fantasy concepts I've read in awhile! The concept of Graceling is kind of like mutants but set back in time to a different land. If you are graced then your eyes will change to different colors at a certain age and it's up in the air what "grace" you'll be blessed/cursed with!
The main character is Katsa and her grace is killing. How is she able to be a compassionate and loving person even when her grace is the art of killing? I just loved her and admired her throughout the whole book. She learns so much about who she is and how to control her grace for the help of others. She was strong and yet had so many flaws. I think more books need some strong female characters, especially for youth and this one hits the mark.
