Book # 13 Young Adult (Mature Audiences)
In this world some people are born "graced." From the time she was little, Kasta has believed she was born with a killing grace, which is put to use by her uncle the King. Kasta finds small ways to fight back against her fate to be her uncle's thug, but when she meets Po, a prince from a different land, he forces her to see everything she does differently, including her grace. Together Po and Kasta must face a bigger threat than her uncle, a king graced with the ability to make people believe his lies. Kasta is one of my favorite characters. This is my third read of this book and I enjoyed it again.

I enjoyed A Dragon's Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans. I adored - loved - must get a copy of A Dragon's Guide to Making Your Human Smarter. Told from both Winnie and Miss Drake's points of view, Winnie starts school and makes friends and enemies under the watchful eye of Miss Drake. But that doesn't stop Winnie from getting into trouble.
