Prince Raffin was her only friend growing up.
She is a member of The Council.
She kills and tortures people for her uncle, King Randa
With prodding from Po she contemplates the real meaning of her Grace. Genre: Fantasy/ Romance Bitterblue King Lecks's daughter
The Princess of Monsea
She escaped her father. Setting The story is set in a fictional place called the seven kingdoms. Importance! In the story King Leck/ Monsea and Lienid is cut off from the rest of the seven kingdoms. Major Conflicts Katsa with herself.
Battle with Leck. "Not much was known about the Monsean court. King Leck was well liked by his people and had a great repuatation for kindness to children, animals, and all helpless creatures." Chapter Two (pg. 19) Irony "The seventh kingdom was Monsea. The mountians set Monsea apart from the others, as the ocean did for Lienid." Chapter Two (pg. 19) This was going to come back and nip Katsa in the back. Symbols and Themes Reaccuring theme of even the strongest can be weak. I suggest this novel to a teenage and young adult audience. Mostly because the main characters are teenagers and they are trying to find who they really are. Also, having to face the expectations of those around them. http://kristincashore.blogspot.com/ http://www.gracelingrealm.com/ GOOD the fantasy aspect
the love story
the strong feminine heroine
the plot twist at the end BAD Difficult to follow at the beginning.
Katsa is a little to stubborn. INTERESTING The eyecolor of the Graced.
King Leck Recommendations What is a Graceling?
