Katsa lives in the Middluns, one of the 7 kingdoms of the world she lives in. If you have 2 different colored eyes, like Katsa, you develop a supernatural power called a Grace. After Katsa accidently kills a family member she dislikes without even thinking about it, she figures out that her Grace is the power to kill. She is trained to serve the king by punishing his enemies.
While resuing a former Linnid king from another kingdom, she meets a misterious Graceling Linnid Prince with the Grace of combat skills. She later discovers that Prince Po is looking for his grandfather(the former king) and they get to know each other really well. Katsa decides to boldy quit working for the king and goes on a quest to find which king kidnapped Po's grandfather. They narrow down all the possibilities, and it all points to King Leck. Is he guilty? Why would he kidnap Po's grandfather? Hm....you just need to read it!
I love this book! You'll love it too if like books like The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. Out of a scale 1 to 10 with 1 being the worst, I give this book an 11!!!
