Graceling-Kristin Cashore

Gracelings, recognized by different colored eyes, have special abilities. Katsa's grace,which her king has employed, is the ability to kill. Could the silver and gold-eyed prince with a mysterious grace tame Katsa?
Kirkus Reviews summed it up this way: "In a tale filled with graphic violence and subtle heartbreak, gentle passion and savage kindness, matter-of-fact heroics and bleak beauty, no defeat is ever total and no triumph comes without cost."
