In a world where some people are born with extreme and often-feared skills called Graces, Katsa struggles for redemption from her own horrifying Grace, the Grace of killing, and teams up with another young fighter to save their land from a corrupt king.
  1. 333
    Els Jocs de la Fam de Suzanne Collins (librarymeg, saltypepper)
    saltypepper: The heroines' voices are very similar, maybe due to their similar response to the awful circumstances they find themselves in.
  2. 301
    Fire de Kristin Cashore (SheReads, Usuari anònim)
    SheReads: Prequel to Graceling about different characters.
    Usuari anònim: because you get the same different world paranormal thing and you get the romance and the good conquers evil
  3. 230
    The Hero and the Crown de Robin McKinley (Aerrin99, humouress)
    Aerrin99: Aerin and Katsa are both gifted women who struggle to find the line between respect and fear. Also, they kick butt.
    humouress: The way the heroines feel like outsiders because of their heritage is similar, as is the way the authors describe the way the heroines think.
  4. 211
    Alanna: The First Adventure de Tamora Pierce (francescadefreitas, helgagrace, espertus)
    espertus: Both Graceling and the Lioness quartet are stories of strong but vulnerable young women wanting to use their considerable powers for good and maintain their identity in the face of romance.
  5. 170
    Poison Study de Maria V. Snyder (deadbookdarling)
    deadbookdarling: Both are set in magical worlds, have strong female leads and a dash of romance.
  6. 170
    The Blue Sword de Robin McKinley (foggidawn, Aerrin99, humouress)
    Aerrin99: For stories that feature interesting and strong woman matched with equally interesting and strong men, with a dash of danger, adventure, and magic tossed in, try either of these books!
    humouress: The way the heroines feel like outsiders because of their heritage is similar, as is the way the authors describe the way the heroines think.
  7. 90
    Terrier de Tamora Pierce (notemily)
  8. 83
    The Thief de Megan Whalen Turner (notemily, C.Vick)

    Finnikin of the Rock de Melina Marchetta (alaskabookworm)
  10. 61
    First Test de Tamora Pierce (foggidawn)

Unique premise. Well-paced. Likeable, yet fallible characters. Satisfying plot and ending. Leaves you wanting a sequel ( )
  Lunarsong | Jul 3, 2022 |
I thoroughly enjoyed the story.
It's wholesome and without sugar sweetness at the end. It feels real enough to exist just outside our realm. And I like the idea of Graces - even with all the bad things attached.

And I honestly don't understand people going on about the feminist agenda and empowerment of women. I just don't. Maybe I lack some solid education in literature to spot what is wrong with this outstanding story?

The main character is a woman. A woman with a unique Grace. What's wrong with that? Not every woman loves dresses. And there is nothing wrong with teaching girls how to defend themselves with and without weapons. And in truth, I was relieved that there was such a non-traditional approach to marriage. I don't really see how institutionalised marriage can help keep people together. But maybe that's just me.

This is a good story and, personally, I see nothing wrong with it. ( )

Great new take on traditional fantasy. Love the characters and couldn't put it down! ( )

Lady Katsa is the niece of King Randa, but more importantly, at least to Randa, is that she's a Graceling--one of the people born with a special power. Katsa's Grace, showing itself at an uncomfortably early age, appears to be killing. Randa has her trained in all the fighting arts, and then uses her as his enforcer. When a prominent subject, or someone he's trading with, or others anger him, he sends Lady Katsa, along with Armsmaster Oll, and Lord Giddon, to deliver his message. Katsa is the one who delivers the painful, or sometimes fatal, part of the message. It's not a job she likes, nor do Oll and Giddon. They don't see any way to stop doing the bidding of the king, but on their own time, they're doing something else--organizing missions to use their skills, resources, contacts, and Katsa's Grace, to help people who are being unfairly abused.

They do this through an organization they call the Council, and their latest mission is to rescue an elderly prince of another kingdom, being secretly held in yet another kingdom. He's a harmless old man of no obvious political importance. They do rescue him, and learn that he, too, has no idea why anyone would think he was worth kidnapping. In the process, though, Katsa encounters a young man not much older than she is, who is also a Graceling. She doesn't learn who he is, until they are back in Randa's kingdom.

The unknown Graceling also arrives at Randa's court, He's Prince Po, from the kingdom the newly-rescued elderly prince is from--though Katya, Oll, and their other allies are hiding the man, not telling Randa about him. He's Po's grandfather, and Po wants to get him home to safety, but is persuaded by the argument that as long as they don't know why he was kidnapped in the first place, he's not safe if too many people know where he is.

What follows are two strands of conflict, the search for the perpetrator of the kidnapping (it wasn't the king who was keeping him locked up in secret, who was doing that because he was being paid), and the growing conflict between Randa's demands on Katsa and her own values. They're both going to come to head, and it will change a lot of lives. Along with these major strands, Lord Giddon is in love with Katsa, but in some important ways doesn't understand her at all. He's a good man and shares a lot of her values, but it's simply incomprehensible to him that Katsa is serious about never marrying and never having children. There are other conflicts, and other excellent, interesting, and loyal characters, and brave and tough, and very young, princess, and the development of the characters I've named and ones I haven't is wonderful.

I found this story completely absorbing and satisfying. Worth mentioning: It's a young adult novel, but some might want to be warned that there is one sex scene included.

Recommended.

I bought this audiobook.

I wasn't hugely impressed with this novel. It's engaging and raises some interesting questions about power, ability, and responsibility, but the resolution of the various conflicts feels abrupt. ( )

In a world of gossip girls, it is perhaps refreshing to have a teenage heroine who cuts off all her hair because it gets in her way; and Kristin Cashore’s eccentric and absorbing first novel, “Graceling,” has such a heroine. Katsa is tough, awkward, beautiful and consumed by pressing moral issues
