Jeg er altså bare ikke ret meget til tegnede covers, de siger mig bare ikke rigtig noget. Altså er jeg heller ikke helt over the moon for dette her. Selvom dragen er ret flot tegnet og farverne er fine, så er det bare ikke rigtig et cover for mig. Men historien derimod, uh! Jeg har ikke læst den første bog endnu, men åh jeg vil gerne! Bogen skulle udkomme engang i 2015, og der er vist ikke planer om en bog 3 endnu.
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.
In her exquisitely written fantasy debut, Rachel Hartman creates a rich, complex, and utterly original world. Seraphina’s tortuous journey to self-acceptance is one readers will remember long after they’ve turned the final page.
