Det handler den om:
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, punnishing 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 …

Min mening:
Jeg havde utrolig svært ved at blive fanget af den i de første 150-200 sider. Ikke at den ikke var spændende, men der var bare et eller andet, der gjorde at den havde rigtig svært ved at fange. Men da den så fangede mig, gjorde den det også med manerer.
Jeg kan rigtig godt lide Katsa, at man har en pige/kvinde der kan slås, og klare sig selv. Jeg kan også rigtig godt lide, at kærlighed ikke kunne redde dem alle.
Der var nogle små ting, jeg ikke rigtig kunne forstå, men det vil jeg ikke nævne, da det kan ødelægge det, for dem der endnu ikke har læst den.
Der var mange puslespil, som eskalerede helt indtil slutningen. Dog brød jeg mig ikke om, Katsa og Po´s slutning.
Men alt i alt en rigtig god bog, da den først kom i gang.
