Reviews

★ "This rich graphic novel adaptation should delight existing fans of the Graceling realm and attract many new ones. Highly recommended." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"This gorgeous adaptation of Cashore's bestselling novel maintains all of the action, suspense, and romance of the source material." -- Booklist

"This is at its heart much more than just an adventure story: It is a story that looks at consent and power over others and a romance between two people dealing with the ways control over themselves affects the larger world--and their hearts as well.... An adaptation of a YA classic that is sure to draw in new fans." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The action is terrific, the story is well-developed for readers unfamiliar with this world, and the ethical questions raised... are compelling and handled with nuance. The true heart of this version, however, are the illustrations themselves. Hinds trusts readers to find meaning in silences, sometimes pages long, and hover there, soaking in subtle gestures that tell the story as much as the fast-moving action scenes." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Gareth Hinds adapted and illustrated Cashore's groundbreaking fantasy debut Graceling, bringing her rich fantasy world to life with stunning visuals. . . . .I love how Hinds weaves in fantasy maps and world building elements in and among the art." -- Book Riot
