With the exception of the unnecessary romance, Graceling
is a pretty good book. I don’t normally get into books for young adults, but I enjoyed this one. I like the idea of people being Graced and what that entails, I really like Katsa and her personal convictions, and most of the other characters in the book are well-written, too. The storyline is good and made me want to keep reading when I should have been putting the book down. I’m looking forward to reading the other two books in this series. From what I gather, the other two books–Fire
–aren’t a continuation of the story in Graceling
, but are each about a different character from the story in Graceling
. If I understand this correctly, Fire
is the background story of King Leck, and Bitterblue
is about Leck’s daughter…Bitterblue.
I’d recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading young adult fantasy.Read my full review on Between the Covers...
