he medieval kingdom of Goredd is a place where humans and dragons live and work side by side, while tensions simmer just below the surface. Those who are both human and dragon, like Seraphina, take great pains to hide their identity. As Seraphina is reluctantly drawn into the politics of her world, she struggles to unite her community just as she does the warring identities within herself.
Shadow Scale is less a sequel than it is another stage of development: it outgrows Seraphina and sheds it like a skin.”
Teens and adults alike will love to creep down the magical streets of Seraphina’s city. I certainly did.”
