Book Review - Graceling

Graceling (The Seven Kingdoms, #1)Graceling by Kristin Cashore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Really good story.

Katsa is a Graceling, someone who has a super skill and is identified by having two different colored eyes. The skill can be something minor like being able to hold your breath for a long time but Katsa's skill is killing. Her Uncle, one of the kings of the Seven Kingdoms, uses her to scare and punish those who defy him.

Working with others, Katsa forms the Council. A group determined to protect the people against the unjustness of their rulers and others, the Council helps free an old man from captivity. Looking for the old man is Po, a Prince from another Kingdom. He's soon in the Council and he and Katsa join forces to save a young girl.

Cashore has created an interesting, medieval world and populated it with real characters. I enjoyed the book quite a lot.
