Imagine... a vividly crafted world in which dragons and the veneration of saints figure prominently. Tight, evocative prose. A stoic, thoughtful, and wise heroine who just wants to make music, torn between the world of humans and the world of dragons. Now imagine that this story has been marketed to the young-adult crowd. Surprised? So was I! If you have a weakness for richly detailed fantasy, Seraphina will make you swoon. Give it a chance — even if you've never picked up a young-adult title before!
