The most memorable moment is at the end of the story and to speak of it her would be to give some of the surprise away, but the characters interact in a most heartwarming way.
Fabulous, they both conveyed the emotion of the moment beautiful and offered a lovely contrast to one another.
Dragons, Music, Royalty and Mystery, what more could you want!
This book is so interesting partly because it's a new mythology, I love a new world, new rules! Each character is beautifully crafted and I am so glad a follow-up is due!
This book was great. It was well written, had interesting characters and character development, had great worldbuilding.
It definitely took me into a world I have never been and had me completely immersed.
The story was not predictable. It had great twists and turns.
The protagonist wasn't annoying in the least, and the antagonist wasn't ridiculous and unbelievable.
I definitely recommend this one.
Beautiful writing. funny. smart. delightful with serious societal issues like race and gender laced into the plot in a flawless way. Love the narrator.
Beautiful narration and a wonderful story. Enjoyed by our whole family, including our children. The story was first rate and I look forward Rachel Hartman's next!
I was mesmerized by this story! Hartman has created a fantastical world of humans and dragons that would do very well in a HISTORY classroom. Seriously! The trials and tribulations that groups such as Native Americans, African-Americans, and Hispanic Americans have faced - such as racism, segregation, and forced removal - blossom in this story. It was so touching yet so very relevant to what young people need to understand about what our country (US) has done to those who are "different" from the people in power. Beyond the social aspects, it was an intriguing story in itself. Highly recommended to readers of all ages.
I listen to Audible books in the car on my commute. This is one of the books I couldn't stop listening too. The story starts out a little vague and confusing but comes into focus over the first few hours.
Seraphina's character came to life so vividly that I felt the strong emotions as if they were the result of something happening in my own life. The story is excellent, and the narrator is one of the best I've listened too.
I will definitely be looking for more Rachel Hartman books.
I loved the setting and the logic of the way the author blends religion and fantasy. Its a rich and full world. Seraphina sucked me in and took me far away to a wonderful world. This book reminds me of Curse of Challion by Lois McMaster Bujold, but for teens.
This is a mature book - well worth the read for adults as well as teens.
I am going to buy copies for all the teens I know.
Sephronia's uncle - he is a very unique character. He reminds me of Spock.
The fact that the music comes alive in this book makes it far richer than just the printed words. I think everyone should listen to this, even if they have read it already in print.
I did cry and laughed as well!
I can't wait for the next book in the series!
Very, very high. I mostly get books I've already read, this was one of the minority that I had never read. Excellent plot, likable characters, and it certainly creates a hunger for the next book! I can't wait.
I found this book by originally searching for Justine Eyre. She has a very small part in this book, and Mandy Williams does a great job narrating the larger part
What lies under your skin?
Well written, well plotted, amazing characters and very well read, definitely worthwhile!
Seraphina is a fantastic and flawed character and is surrounded by a number of others. The villain to the story was relatively easy to guess but the story isn't really intended as a murder mystery.
When she first remembers. The last talk with Lucien.
No, in the middle was a bit slow, the second part is better!
Its a great story, but I like more romance developing. The best part is the magic world it sets in. She is clever, but she makes dumb decisions...
