Fire Wins Award

Fire, the prequel to Graceling by Kristen Cashore won the 2010 Amelia Elizabeth Walden Book Award.

Fire is a human monster, so beautiful that she has to hide her hair for fear of attack by both raptor monsters and human men. She is able to enter other people’s minds and exert power over them. It is a tumultuous time in the kingdom, as various lords are preparing to overthrow the king, and Fire is drawn into the fray.
