Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

Spoiler free review!  I love it when a book gets me. When I can open it up and I think “oh, that’s something new.” and it sucks me in. Seraphina, Rachel Hartman’s first novel, had a very fun and very new concept for me. What if dragons and humans could live and work side by […]
