Book Review: Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

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.

IMG_1373I love this book! I mean there’s dragons in it who doesn’t love dragons especially dragons that are this cool there needs to be more YA books about dragons. There’s also cool well developed side characters whom I ’m exited to see more of in the next book,  Seraphina is a wonderful heroine, the world is classic fantasy with an extremely interesting and unique twist and my favorite thing about this book.

I have a few problems mostly with the beginning it isn’t as well written or paced as the rest of the book and it does take a few chapters to get into the story its just not the best introduction to the story or the world it feels like your thrown into everything, other then the first few chapters the book is great I even liked the romance and Ive been very picky about romances lately but this one wasn’t so cliche and there was no insta love. I normally have trouble getting through high fantasy but while this took me awhile to read it wasn’t to long, and it wasn’t as slow as most high fantasy’s . This book is amazing overall the next one was set up wonderfully and should be even better.
