“Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight — she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme, and in her case horrifying, skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug. When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change.
She never expects to become Po’s friend. She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace — or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away… a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.”
I have to say that I wasn’t expecting the book to be this good when I first started reading. There were certain parts that I felt were too much description when in a previous part of the novel it was described and didn’t need another description. I really like Katsa she was a very interesting character and I don’t feel like I have another a book with a character similar to her so I applaud Kristin Cashore’s originality. I also really liked Po. Bitterblue was my favorite though I think because even though she is little she is very perceptive and observatory and also that she wants to protect herself and want to learn how, instead of just relying on bodyguards.
I really like Katsa because she is such a strong woman, she doesn't allow the king to control her and steps up to protect others. Also, when the times comes to part ways with the king, when she couldn't before she, she does and tells him that if he ever tries anything with her again he is going to regret it.I really love that she stands up for her.
"On one side of the border lies the modern world: the internet, homecoming dances, cell phones. On the other side dwell the ancient monsters who spark humanity's deepest fears: dragons.I have to say this is going to be one of my favs for the year. Its sort of a Romeo/Juliet with out the love but just a friendship. It is also like Aragon, in the learning to ride although Kay doesn't get the special powers when she rides Artegal.
Seventeen-year-old Kay Wyatt knows she's breaking the law by rock climbing near the border, but she'd rather have an adventure than follow the rules. When the dragon Artegal unexpectedly saves her life, the rules are abruptly shattered, and a secret friendship grows between them.
But suspicion and terror are the legacy of human and dragon interactions, and the fragile truce that has maintained peace between the species is unraveling. As tensions mount and battles begin, Kay and Artegal are caught in the middle. Can their friendship change the course of a war?
In her young-adult debut, New York Times bestselling author Carrie Vaughn presents a distinctly twenty-first-century tale of myths and machines, and an alliance that crosses a seemingly unbridgeable divide."
Pretty much the book is about how humans are afraid of dragons and how they are willing to start a war and the only human who has talked to a dragon in a really long time is Kay and how she may be able to stop the war with Artegal at her side. If she able to talk to him. Lesson to learn: Don't be afraid and hate something that you don/t understand.
The shadowghosts are talking to her. The only way to let them free is to cut, cut, cut them free.
