Seraphina took the literary world by storm with 8 starred reviews and numerous “Best of” lists. At last, her eagerly awaited sequel has arrived—and with it comes an epic battle between humans and dragons.
The kingdom of Goredd: a world where humans and dragons share life with an uneasy balance, and those few who are both human and dragon must hide the truth. Seraphina is one of these, part girl, part dragon, who is reluctantly drawn into the politics of her world. When war breaks out between the dragons and humans, she must travel the lands to find those like herself—for she has an inexplicable connection to all of them, and together they will be able to fight the dragons in powerful, magical ways.
As Seraphina gathers this motley crew, she is pursued by humans who want to stop her. But the most terrifying is another half dragon, who can creep into people’s minds and take them over. Until now, Seraphina has kept her mind safe from intruders, but that also means she’s held back her own gift. It is time to make a choice: Cling to the safety of her old life, or embrace a powerful new destiny?
Seraphina was one of my favourite reads of last year. It took me by surprise and completely blew me away with its plot and host of characters. I've already devoured the novella, The Audition, and can't wait to get my hands on the next instalment of this series. If you haven't managed to pick Seraphina up yet, then make sure to before Shadow Scales release. You absolutely have to read the novella too. The novella gave even greater insight into the characters and made me care for some of the characters even more that I had from the book itself!
