Set in a world where some people are born with a Grace - a unique, sometimes uncanny, gift - this is the story of Katsa, whose Grace, demonstrated at an uncomfortably early age, is for killing. This makes her a perfect tool for her uncle, King Randa. But Katsa chafes at the way she is being used - and even more at the injustices she sees around her. Then she meets Prince Po, who has a Grace to match hers... perhaps.

Featuring FCA favorite Chelsea Mixon as Katsa, and sensational newcomer Zachary Exton as Prince Po, the most fascinating and praised fantasy debut of 2008 now springs to life in a sensational full-cast recording. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " This book has its moments, but it was slow. I was always waiting for something to happen, something MORE. And then when something did happen, it wasn't exciting. I never had strong feelings of either interest or disgust - I wasn't pulled in. I found it an okay, mostly boring read. "

    " A pure fantasy book that caught my imagination and kept me thinking about the book even while I wasn't reading it. I would recommend this book to my friends. "

    " Amazing book! I fell in love with the two main characters. This book could have stood alone, though then I would have missed everyone terribly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 1/13/2014

    " I was not sure if this was a book that I would enjoy reading, but I got caught up in the story line and intrigued with the characters. I found it easy to read and I am happy that I was along on Katsa and Po's adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ceej | 1/6/2014

    " I liked it a lot. I usually don't do so much romance and the writing style is different than my favorite authors, but it was a great book with a total kick-butt MC and a lot of action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cora Linn | 12/18/2013

    " 3.5 but I'm in a generous mood so rounded up. Not the best book out of the three, but still worth a read and very enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith Main | 10/13/2013

    " Absolutely adored this book, and Katsa's journey. It was one of those one-in-a-hundred books that captures you and never lets you go. I was upset that the book had to end..Very well written, comedic and over-all lovely. Highly recommended :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris | 3/23/2012

    " Amazing, I loved the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce, but Graceling is my new favorite. Katsa is so much like Alanna, but at the same time stronger and a more likeable character. I loved this book and can't wait to read more of Kristin Cashore's work! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teri | 2/19/2012

    " the end it was perfect "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon Cannarella | 11/7/2011

    " This book conveyed a very strong female character. She would not allow herself to be put behind anyone. Cunning and survival was what the couple did best. To have a Grace and to constantly fight not to be owned or controlled. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reenee | 8/3/2011

    " really liked it. It was so realistic for a fantasy novel =3 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 5/24/2011

    " Fantastic fantasy book with a awesome strong female character that people can admire. While some of the details in the book may be more modern, this is a great tale of romance, love, and finding out who you really are to defeat all odds "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pernille | 5/24/2011

    The ending was quite good, a little disappointing but quite cute. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/24/2011

    " Katsa is a beautiful, strong, and inspiring character and the others that surround her are just as great. The story is wonderful and creative. I will forever listen to the book recommendations of 7th graders. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cloud_9 | 5/22/2011

    " Very good book, although I have to say the ending confused me a bit so I had to read it several times. After I understood it I found it rather depressing.

    All in all, a good book even if the end could have been better "

    " Ok, I read the whole thing yesterday. I did not want to put it down. I loved the strong female character and the development of her abilities. I also loved the way the plot changed and developed. Fabulous story. I highly recommend it!!!I can't wait to read her next book "Fire". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LauraW | 5/21/2011

    " I liked this, but I am just a tad less convinced by the full cast audio version. The narration and the voicing has just a bit too much self-conscious story-telling quality to it. I am not quite able to put my finger on it. "

    " Loved the plot, hated the writing. "
