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.
Teens and adults alike will love to creep down the magical streets of Seraphina’s city. I certainly did.”
—Maggie Stiefvater, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Shiver
