Details: Product Description

The beloved New York Times best-selling YA fantasy by Kristin Cashore is now available as a graphic novel, with stunning illustrations by award-winning artist Gareth Hinds.

Katsa is a Graceling, one of the rare people born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she lived a life of privilege until the day her ability to kill a man with her bare hands revealed itself during a royal banquet. Now she acts as her uncle’s enforcer, traveling the kingdom and threatening those who dare oppose him.

But everything changes when she meets Po, a foreign prince Graced with combat skills who is searching for the truth about his grandfather’s disappearance. When Katsa agrees to help him, she never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace—or about a terrible secret that could destroy them all.

With “gorgeous storytelling” (
School Library Journal, starred review) and characters “crafted with meticulous devotion” (
Kirkus Reviews, starred review),
Graceling is a beloved classic that has continued to resonate with readers for over a decade.

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-Throughout the Seven Kingdoms, individuals with two different colored eyes are Graced with unique talents. Blue- and green-eyed Katsa, King Randa’s niece, is Graced with fighting abilities, so the king uses her as a thug, but Katsa has started a Secret Council where she and others work for justice. When Prince Po, a silver- and gold-eyed Graceling from Lienid, comes to Randa’s court to find his kidnapped grandfather, he inspires Katsa to leave Randa’s service and discover the reason for the kidnapping-and the truth behind King Leck of Monsea’s reputation for kindness. Hinds’s graphic novel retelling is faithful to Cashore’s original story, honoring her world-building, characters, plot, dialogue, and description; his art brings the highly visual tale to life, from dramatic fight sequences and beautiful landscapes to details like a blush on Katsa’s cheeks and ice on her eyelashes. The Gracelings’ heterochromia is visually striking. Katsa and most Middluns people are white; Po and the Lienids have brown skin. As the characters change locations, Randa’s castle’s secret passageways and maps of the seven kingdoms are woven naturally into the story, helping readers follow the action. VERDICT This rich graphic novel adaptation should delight existing fans of the Graceling realm and attract many new ones. Highly recommended for all YA graphic novel collections.-Jenny Arch, Lilly Lib., Florence, MAα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Review

★ “This rich graphic novel adaptation should delight existing fans of the Graceling realm and attract many new ones. Highly recommended.”—
School Library Journal, STARRED review

“This gorgeous adaptation of Cashore’s bestselling novel maintains all of the action, suspense, and romance of the source material.”—
Booklist

“This is at its heart much more than just an adventure story: It is a story that looks at consent and power over others and a romance between two people dealing with the ways control over themselves affects the larger world—and their hearts as well…. An adaptation of a YA classic that is sure to draw in new fans.”—
Kirkus Reviews

“The action is terrific, the story is well-developed for readers unfamiliar with this world, and the ethical questions raised… are compelling and handled with nuance. The true heart of this version, however, are the illustrations themselves. Hinds trusts readers to find meaning in silences, sometimes pages long, and hover there, soaking in subtle gestures that tell the story as much as the fast-moving action scenes.”—
