“Seraphina (Seraphina #1)” by Rachel Hartman
Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Fantasy
Summary from Goodreads:
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.
Greetings to Swathi from Give Me The Books.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I love books. Well, that’s probably obvious since I blog about them. It all started with Harry Potter, when I was 7, and my parents made my read them. Before that, I used to think reading was an arduous task, but Harry Potter changed that for me. That’s why I’m such a huge Harry Potter geek. One of my most prized jewelry possessions is a Harry Potter bracelet I bought off Etsy. My phone case is the Marauder’s Map. So it’s fair to say that I’m obsessed. But mainly, I like to read young adult books. I like paranormal, fantasy, contemporary, dystopia, and I’ll occasionally venture out of those genres, but that’s mainly what I review.
How did you end up here in the world of book blogging?
One day, I was walking, and I thought “What if I made a blog about BOOKS?” It just sort of came to me like that. Then I wrote up a introduction post and my first official review, and bam! Give Me The Books was born. I have blogged on other blogs before, but Give Me The Books is exclusively for books.
