Kristin Cashore's YA fantasy Graceling trilogy—Graceling, Fire, and last year's Bitterblue—have been optioned for film, according to Variety. The rights have been purchased by the same companies behind the first Vampire Academy series film, Blood Sisters, which is currently slated for a 2014 release.
Graceling and its companion novels are set in a world where individuals with special powers—called Graces—are set apart from their fellow citizens with mismatched eyes, and each book revolves around a different heroine (Katsa, Fire, and Bitterblue, respectively). In book 1, Graceling, the strong and skilled assassin Katsa meets her match in another Graced fighter, a prince named Po, and together they help to rescue a young princess (Po's cousin, Bitterblue) and her kingdom from its dangerous ruler.
Have you read the Graceling trilogy? Looking forward to seeing it brought to life on the big screen? Who would you like to see cast as Katsa and Po?
