Graceling – Kristin Cashore

Graceling is born with a rare skill, one which stops her living the kind of privileged life that one might expect the niece of a king should in the Seven Kingdoms. Able to kill a man with her bare hands since the age of eight, she effectively functions as a thug for the king and has no idea how her life is going to change when she meets Prince Po. With a plot and characterisation that strengthens as the novel progresses, Graceling follows Po on his mission to find his grandfather and discovers much about not only herself but also information which could endanger the very world in which she lives.
