Graceling by Kristin Cashore. Amazing book that I COULD NOT put down (I read it in two days). It's about a land of seven kingdoms, where babies born with two different colored eyes are "Graced" with a special talent, from super strength to mind-reading. It's a superbly written book for Cashore's forst novel. I can't wait to read the prequel "Fire", and the sequel "Bitterblue".
