There’s still plenty of time to sign up for July’s book club. This month we’re discussing Graceling by Kristin Cashore. If you like quality fantasy stories featuring female protagonists that kick butt, you will love Graceling.
These covers are the UK version and the US version. Which one do you like better?
Read this description from Goodreads:Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight—she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug. When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change. She never expects to become Po’s friend. She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace—or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away . . . a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.
I’m such a huge Graceling fan that I went to see Kristin Cashore speak when she came to Seattle in May. Here I am with the author. I was a little star struck!
