I freaking love this book. LOVE. IT.
There are dragons. I love dragons. LOVE THEM*. Yet these dragons are utterly unique to this world that Hartman has painstakingly created. The world building in this novel is incredible, especially in regards to dragons and their complicated history with humans.
Seraphina is a fantastic heroine. She’s a wonderfully complex character and an excellent narrator. She had me captivated from the very first page. The story is wonderfully paced and has a bit of everything: action, intrigue, magic, music and romance.
Everything about the book feels purposeful. It’s a beautifully crafted first novel and I’m so excited for the next one in the series – give it to me now!
