Last year I read Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder and I was obsessed with it. It has a Graceling by Kristin Cashore feeling to it, but better. Oh yes, I think it is better than Graceling. I'm not reading book 2: Scent of Magic and it is everything I was hoping for! I'm about half way into it right now and I can't wait for more reading time. I highly recommend this series.
