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.

4.0 Badass Librarians
I won this book in a Netgalley contest and enjoyed it more than I expected to. The book features badass librarians who travel to parallel universes to steal books, and the adventures a certain librarian has along the way. There is sort of an Indiana Jones vibe, mixed with the fantasy elements of Ser...

3.0 Seraphina (Seraphina #1)
Wow, I honestly don't know how to describe this one. I was expecting a more 'typical' combination of YA and dragons. What I was NOT expecting was:-political intrigues-royal drama-tending gardens of the human mind-serious fangirling over art, with the emphasis on serious-dragons with Asperger's syndr...

4.5 Dragons and Intrigue!
So I picked up this book because it's sequel came up as "Books like Red Queen" and I wanted to read the first book so the second one made sense. And yes you need to read the first to understand the second. This book has a lot going for it, strong main character and strong female secondary characte...
