Book Cover

Graceling the graphic novel written by Kristin Cashore and Gareth Hinds

Expected publication: 16 November 2021

Publisher: Clarion Books

From Goodreads:

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.

Why I Can’t Wait for this book:

After recovering from my shock that Graceling was initially published over ten years ago – how old am I?? – wait, I’ve been blogging on the Moonlight Library for nearly ten years! – I am still really excited to  read this. While Graceling wasn’t my favourite book in the series – that was Fire – and I read the first two books before I started blogging, I am really looking forward to seeing this artist’s interpretation of an incredible story that takes place in visually stunning scenery.
