Book of the Moment: Graceling by Kristin Cashore

I just finished reading Graceling by Kristin Cashore this morning! The book is set in the times of Kings and Queens and their rule over the land. There are seven kingdoms and Katsa the main character lives in Middluns where her Uncle Randa is the King of the Middluns. In this book certain people have "graces" which really is a talent that is within them when they are born. Katsa has the grace of killing and she is used as a tool for her uncle so she can do his dirty deeds. But on a important mission she meets Prince Po, a Liened prince graced with the skill of combat. From there her life takes un expected turns as she learns of a secret that is dangrous to all seven kingdoms. Katsa  and Prince Po set off on a journey for something dangerous and even something Katsa can't even manage to kill...

I really enjoyed this book. If your die hard for books with princes and princesses yet with some kick ass action then read THIS! It's not always that you come across a book where the heroine is so strong and so comfortable in her own skin. This is a book for all those who want to disapear in a land of princes, adventure, love, and not just your typical romantic, back in the ol' days gig. Graceling is a fun book and is perfect for any kind of reader.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars!
