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. 311
    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
  2. 344
    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.
  3. 220
    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. 221
    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
    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.
  6. 170
    Poison Study de Maria V. Snyder (deadbookdarling)
    deadbookdarling: Both are set in magical worlds, have strong female leads and a dash of romance.
  7. 100
    Terrier de Tamora Pierce (notemily)
  8. 83
    The Thief de Megan Whalen Turner (notemily, C.Vick)
    C.Vick: While different in essence, I think Turner's Attolia books have a similar feel to Graceling.
  9. 61
    First Test de Tamora Pierce (foggidawn)
  10. 50
    Finnikin of the Rock de Melina Marchetta (alaskabookworm)
  11. 40
    Uprooted de Naomi Novik (cransell)
    cransell: Both excellent YA fantasy with strong female characters and great world building.
  12. 30
    The Singer of All Songs de Kate Constable (bbrux)
    bbrux: Young woman on an adventure to discover her hidden talents.
  13. 30
    Cinder de Marissa Meyer (justjukka)
    justjukka: Protagonist is relegated to third-class citizenship because of her gifts and must overcome prejudice.
  14. 31
    Throne of Glass de Sarah J. Maas (luna_lovegood)
    luna_lovegood: Exactly as kazhout said "strong, beautiful, intelligent, and sassy." Plus, badass and good heart.
  15. 53

    hairball: Young women rebelling against their prescribed role.

This was a really good book. It's hard to make an assassin a really sympathetic character, but I liked Katsya, and I really liked Po. I like that their solution is tailored to them. I like the villain twist, and the well-crafted political ins and outs. The book did seem to end quite suddenly, but I believe there are more. Certainly the third book is about at least one of the characters. In all, quite an enjoyable read, and I look forward to more by this author. ( )

I like the first 2/3 of Graceling a lot. The main character is badass. There is a moment in the book where she feels betrayed about something and I really empathized with her. I like how Katsa and Poe interact with each other, and I think the world is interesting.

However, the last third of the book is kind of strange. The relationship between Katsa and Poe takes a very unnatural turn, and the book gets kind of preachy and forced. ( )

OMG, Fantastic! I stayed up all night...had to finish. Compelling, great world-building, strong complex characters... more later. ( )

A very refreshing young adult novel with an atypical female lead. Katsa is a Graceling, a person born with a special enhanced ability (not a super power persay, as they are more mundane abilities; referred to as a Grace), and evident by having eyes of two different colors. Katsa's Grace is for fighting and her uncle the King uses her as his enforcer. Katsa is a smart woman, can easily beat or kill anyone who comes against her and desires none of the trappings or roles for the women of her country. She can take care of herself, and frequently is the one doing the rescuing. This a good book for young girls, and a good alternative for a genre which can be filled with princesses needing rescuing or focused on marriage. ( )

1. That scene in Randa’s throne room when the king’s like “I’ll kill you” and Katsa goes “mm no” and he’s all “

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
