Seraphina is Rachel Hartman's teen fiction breathtaking debut, and it has already inspired a fan following amongst esteemed fantasy authors and fans, and hit the New York Times bestseller list!

to do or not to do? that's the problem.
quoting from sun tzu, if you don't have a chance of winning even though you have poured your best efforts, don't go to war. better retreat and better prepare yourself.

"An epic fantasy." -- Entertainment Weekly
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.
"With every book [Amelia Atwater-Rhodes] surprises me with the intricate details of her world." -- Jeanne
The rich stew of the author's creations --SingleEarth, vampires, shapeshifters, Tristes, the Bruja Guilds --are at full boil here in the story of two 20-ish young women trying to out run their very different pasts, and figure out where they fit in and who they might become. Each has landed in a more 'normal' place, and each wonders if, like a tattoo that can't be covered up, they can ever really fit into 'normal.'
Or is it? Gretchen and Will are still haunted by the memories of the night the Sirens were destroyed--Gretchen because she can't remember what happened and Will because he doesn't know how to tell Gretchen what he saw. He doesn't even understand what he saw, but he does know now that Gretchen is more than what she seems, more than a human girl. And at the same time, he is more in love with her than ever.
Gretchen knows there's something wrong, too. She feels like an alien in her own body, but she doesn't know why. And she feels a presence stalking her at every turn. Have the Sirens returned to Walfang? Or has some other force come to claim her?
