Just a quick review - I like to do book reviews in under 100 words. Rapid fire reviews, anyone?

Graceling is slow to start, but finishes strong and brilliant, right on target. Katsa is a difficult protagonist to love, but you do come to accept, if not worship, her by the end. And Po is a hero worthy of the ages.
I'm not sure it's my pick for 2010, but I can see why it's garnered so much respect.
