This book was a great read but it was quite long- about 480 pages.
Katsa is a girl with a Grace. A Grace is basically an innate ability that allows a person to excel at a certain task. Katsa has the killing Grace.
She is ordered around by her uncle, who sends her to do his dirty work. Katsa doesn’t like it, but she hates getting on her uncle’s bad side even more. Katsa also dislikes using her ability to torture innocent people. But she does. Without questioning it.
Until Po comes along. Po is a prince from a neighboring region. He has come to visit for work, but instantly recognizes Katsa as another person with the Grace.
When Po and Katsa meet, they instantly clash. Both have a strong attraction towards each other, but also an immediate wariness. When they get a chance to fight, it is a draw, and Katsa is secretly thrilled that she has met her match for her Grace. However, Po tells her that not all is as it seems, and that she must learn to control her weakness, anger, before it gets the better of her, and allows people to provoke her.
When Katsa’s uncle chooses to exploit her weakness once more to send her on a mission, her response may not be the expected one.
Will she listen?

I loved Graceling!! I read it a few years ago, but I remember adoring it.
You should definitely read the next two as well- I just finished Fire and I loved it!! Thank you for visiting my blog!
I read Fire and Bitterblue after I read Graceling, and I absolutely loved them as well! I hope you enjoy Bitterblue just as much!
