The only thing Katsa is sure of is that she no longer wants to kill.
What world-building there was in this story felt a bit lazy to me – the names of five of the seven kingdoms are just North, South, East, West, and Middle, with the spelling reworked a little bit I casuore, Wester? I was also a little confused by Po’s Grace. Far and above, Po’s people stood out, with their penchant for jewelry, their dark hair and gray eyes–their culture was nicely distinctive.
Review: Graceling (Graceling Realm #1) by Kristin Cashore
And who was the extraordinary Graced man whose fighting abilities rivalled her own? I was so happy when Katsa met Po! You should also know that I didn’t finish this book. Alas, Bitterblue is a princess, privileged in status, and again I find myself wishing Katsa’s power had reached out and perhaps changed the lives of others less fortunate for the better.
It’s not sufficient to just tell us that the two kings were cranky or having a bad day. You know the kickbutt heroine who is just totally kickbutt and doesn’t need no one, no way, no how, and yet loves and feels and hurts deeply and yet keeps everyone away because she is baaaaaad? Sure she recognizes that on her own, but at the pivotal moment when she decides to defy the king, it’s because her crush told her she can do it.
Graceling Book Review
The castle guard was a bit more complicated, because five guards defended his office. I feel as if I’ve come home.
Overall, the plot was exceptionally creative. I love modern stories with strong heroines who can stand up for themselves and don’t need to wait for prince charming to swoop in and save them.
The writing style bothered me the most when it came to scenes involving fighting.
The Cons Unfortunetely, the book doesn’t follow such a path. Set preferences to see our top age-appropriate picks for your kids. This may be highly disturbing to cat-lovers. I knew I wasn’t going to like the book when I picked it up.
And I have still never felt bored. Rdalm stuck with Katsa through plodding pacing, through unnecessary secondary character development, through a climax that was more of an anticlimax The World Itself The world of Graceling lacks nuance.
Graceling – Wikipedia
Young Bitterblue is a character that really stood out. As for being a “strong female character” – Katsa’s just another one of the cookie-cutter so-called SFCs that unfortunately riddle YA fantasy of late.
Is there a trend for names like this? She gets all tender-hearted when she hears about oppressed and abused people and animals far away but has no problem inflicting these things on people and animals around her.
I am so disappointed right now. Trivia About Graceling Gracel The only character who showed any signs of an actual personality was the girl’s maid, and she gdaceling wasn’t enough to make me slog through the remaining pages. View all 4 comments. She’s like my hero. Dec 21, Candi Stephenson rated it it was ok.
Katsa never plans on marrying, falling in love, or having children. It is a retelling of the King Arthur tale, set in a rgaceling world, but adds the elements of the Wells, the sinking of Lyonnesse, and industrialization to make a breathtakingly fresh and original world. Pretend that Katsa is actually a male character and Po is female. This is going to take a while, but stay with me.
How old is your kid? Horses are not machines, good god! Sheeshso to say all of that twice is completely pointless, unless the author really wanted to hammer home how much Katsa, her heroine, doesn’t understand.
They are complex and ever evolving.
