“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.” -Goodreads.com
For me I’m always hesitant to read books that involve dragons because it is very much a hit or miss for me (most times a miss).
But thankfully I ended up loving Seraphina so much! The only part I didn’t like was when I finished it I didn’t realize my copy had 50 pages of bonus material in the back… So the whole time it was getting close to the end I was loving it even more because I thought there would be 50 more pages to it, and there wasn’t.
An also bonus is while I was on Goodreads I saw there is going to be a sequel!! Which I’m so excited about since I was slightly disappointed with the ending. And also getting to get back into this world… I love it 🙂
