Review

Shortlist - Governor General's Award - Children's Literature (2012)

“Full of grace and gravitas, Seraphina’s first-person voice is a welcome change from today’s snark-infested YA novels. Readers loath to turn the last page of this lush, intricately plotted fantasy will rejoice in the knowledge of next summer’s as-yet-untitled sequel.”
The Washington Post
 
“In Hartman’s splendid prose debut, humans and dragons—who can take human form but not human feeling—have lived in uneasy peace for 40 years. . . . Dragon books are common enough, but this one is head and talons above the rest.”
Kirkus Reviews, Starred review
 
“Hartman proves dragons are still fascinating in this impressive high fantasy. Equal parts political thriller, murder mystery, bittersweet romance, and coming-of-age story, this is an uncommonly good fantasy. . . . An exciting new series to watch.”
Booklist, Starred review
 
“Establishes Hartman as an exciting new talent. . . . There’s a lot to enjoy in Hartman’s debut, from the admirably resourceful heroine and intriguing spin on dragons to the intricately described medievalesque setting and emphasis on music and family.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred review

Seraphina makes dragons fascinating once again. . . . While the book is full of court intrigue and (sometimes literal) backstabbing, the prose itself is an absolute joy. It's thick and rich without being difficult to read . . . . Everything about the book feels really well-crafted… Not one sentence seems slapdash.”
io9.com

“Passion and musicality—those are the qualities prized by Seraphina, the fiercely intelligent, headstrong half-human/half-dragon heroine in Rachel Hartman’s debut novel of the same name. They also emanate from every element—from prose to plot—in this beguiling YA fantasy.”
National Post
 
“Beautifully written, well-rounded characters, and some of the most interesting dragons I’ve read in fantasy for a long while. An impressive debut novel; I can't wait to see what Rachel Hartman writes next.”
—Christopher Paolini, New York Times bestselling author of Eragon

"A book worth hoarding."
—Naomi Novik, New York Times bestselling author of the Temeraire series
 
"I love this book!"
—Tamora Pierce, New York Times bestselling author
 
"A wonderful mix of thrilling story, fascinating characters, and unique dragonlore."
—Alison Goodman, NYT bestselling author of Eon

"Characters I will follow to the ends of the earth."
—Ellen Kushner
