In a world where people born with an exceptional skill, known as a Grace, are feared and exploited, Katsa carries the burden of a skill even she despises: the Grace of killing.

She lives under the command of her Uncle Randa, King of the Middluns, and is expected to carry out his dirty work, punishing and torturing anyone who displeases him. Breaking arms and cutting off fingers are her stock-in-trade. Finding life under his rule increasingly unbearable, Katsa forms an underground Council whose purpose is to combat the destructive behaviour of the seven kings - after all, the Middluns is only one of the Seven Kingdoms, each of them ruled by their own king and his personal agenda for power.

When the Council hears that the King of Liend's father has been kidnapped Katsa investigates ... and stumbles across a mystery. Who would want to kidnap him, and why? And who was the extraordinary Graced fighter who challenged her fighting skills, for the first time, as she and the Council rushed the old man to saftey?

Something dark and deadly is rising in the north and creeping across the continent, and behind it all lurks the shadowy figure of a one-eyed king ...

    This book has you from the moment you start till when you finish the last page, characters subtle and yet relatable, hidden and yet not. They speak to you, and draw you into their world. Thrilling and captivating, once you read this book you will only want read more. Beautifully written, sensitive, with a strength that shines through, able to show the nature of humanity and bring an idea of what truly tests the heart and soul.

    I love the idea of having a Grace. Kristin has done really well in making people with a Grace sound convincing. This story is really well written with lots of action and emotion. I can't wait to read book 2 and continue following the lives of such exceptional characters.

    Love, love, loved this book. Very engaging and I couldn't put it down until I was finished. I did find that the action plays out rather quickly towards the end, could have been a little longer. But still, a great read.
  • Great read
