Review in 75 Words or Less: Graceling completely blew me away. The characters, the world, the plot... all of it was pure magic. Ms. Cashore and her world are unique in a way that surprised me. It was full-bodied and complex, but not difficult to understand or follow. Readers are presented with an elaborate tale that is easy to get swept away in. And that is only part of what makes Graceling so unforgettable.Final Verdict: Graceling is an astounding read. One that I wish I had not put off for so long. It is a breathtaking world filled with fantastic characters, romance, and plenty of adventure. You will not want to miss this fantastic tale.
