Seraphina (Seraphina, #1)Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“How dare the world be beautiful when I was so horrifying?”

Oh wow, this is truly a beautiful and wondrous story. A new take on dragons that's entirely original and told in such a breathtaking way that it will cling to your mind for a long while. It's a story that has it all, an outstanding cast of characters and compelling story line. It contains mystery, action, humor, bittersweet romance and friendship, each in equal balance.

I loved everything about this, an incredible fantasy, utterly breathtaking. The characters were flawless, you either loved them or loved to hate them each one was so independently entertaining it's hard not to love them all. From Seraphina the incredibly brave heroine, to Prince Lucian Kiggs heartthrob and hero to Orma.. can i just say how much i loved Orma? I do hope he gets more page time in the next book!

I didn't know much about Seraphina before i started reading it, just the blurb and i am so happy that i went into it spoiler free! It beat my expectations into the ground! Therefore i will not go into the plot i will only say that i cannot say enough good words about this book and highly recommend this to all, not just lovers of fantasy but to all book lovers.

Hartman's writing style is captivating and uniquely beautiful, all i can do not is wait for Shadowscale, the second installment to the series, as patiently as i possibly can, my fingers are itching for it!

“We were all monsters and bastards, and we were all beautiful
