Seraphina lives in a world where humans and dragons live with an uneasy peace.  Some of the Saar live among humans in human form, but dragons are not humans; they are logical, mathematical, and they generally despise humans and their emotions.

The people of Goredd are preparing for the anniversary of the peace treaty and the arrival of the Ardmagar, leader of the dragons.  Amidst the bustle of the preparations, Seraphina senses something is amiss.

Seraphina has spent her life in hiding at the request of her father, but now that she has a position as assistant music mistress in the palace, it will be difficult to keep a low profile.  In a world were people hate dragons and dragons hate people, she is what the impossible, the thing no one wants to believe exists.

To make things worse, she is having completely inappropriate and irresponsible feelings for the man who just happens to be a prince and engaged to be married to the girl who is third in line to the throne.

Now Seraphina must keep her secret while she guards her heart and tries to uncover a dangerous political plot.

I love this book!  It's one of the best fantasies I've read in ages.  It's smart, complex, and compelling.  Fans of Christopher Paolini's Eragon series will love it!

You must read Rachel Hartman's debut novel.  You don't want to miss out on this one!
