I feel like there are a lot of books about dragons but this book proves that the subject can still be just as fascinating. I listened to Seraphina by Rachel Hartman and feel in love with the world that was created here. This book has it all- intrigue, interesting characters and a wonderful setting. I was sad to have it end but was so excited to hear that the author is very busy writing the sequel now!


Seraphina lives in a world where dragons and humans have signed a treaty to live peaceful among each other. Dragons can change into human form but they are still very different as they don’t understand human emotions, religion, and art. The truce between the humans and dragons is shaky after 40 years, and now the head of the dragon’s is coming for a visit. As tension, secrets, and murder all pile up around her, Seraphina just wants to be unnotice and work on her music in the castle. That is not to be the case though as she might be the only one that can keep the treaty in place! With the the help of the royal family, the unearthing of her own secrets and the bravery of love, Seraphina has an adventure in the dragon world that keeps readers wondering what could be lurking around the corner while also keeping your heartstrings on edge!
