Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
Series: Seraphina, Book One
Page Amount: 467, US Hardcover Edition

"Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty's anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high.

Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen's Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints of a sinister plot to destroy the peace, Seraphina struggles to protect her own secret, the secret behind her musical gift, one so terrible that its discovery could mean her very life.

In her exquisitely written fantasy debut, Rachel Hartman creates a rich, complex, and utterly original world. Seraphina's tortuous journey to self-acceptance is one readers will remember long after they've turned the final page."

My Thoughts:
 Not going to lie, I wasn't in love with this one at first. The medieval wording and all the terms to remember made it difficult for me to understand. However I found myself not able to put this down.Rachel did a fantastic job with this debut novel!! Its only the second dragon book I've read. I really loved Seraphina, Prince Lucian and Princess Glisselda, Orma. The whole dragon storyline.

Truly amazing!!! You should read this, right now!!

I want the sequel admittedly!!

5/5 stars, READ IT NOW!! Happy Reading, Ashley
