Whew! It’s finally Friday. I don’t know about you, but this week has felt long…maybe it’s because it’s my first week back from vacation. Anywho, I’m thrilled to bring you my favorite K character today. K is for…
Katsa from Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Katsa is a killing machine. Because of her Grace, she can kill anyone with her bare hands. While the Graced are often set apart, Katsa is even more isolated; her uncle uses her to do his dirty work, and her fearsome reputation doesn’t match her heart. When she finally defies her uncle, Katsa starts a chain of events that might not only save herself, but the kingdom as well.
I love Katsa. She’s strong (physically), but she’s all tangled up emotionally. Katsa’s greatest strength is ultimately in allowing herself to be vulnerable, something a lot of readers can resonate with.
