Seraphina

CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • 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.
    Publisher
  • In this first of two planned books, Hartman creates a world simultaneously strange and familiar. Her dragons are as magnetic as her human characters. Teens will readily identify with Seraphina’s conflicting desires: to please her family or to make her own future.
    Shelf Awareness
  • 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
  • Hartman creates a rich story layered with intriguing characters and descriptive settings. This unique novel will surely appeal to fans of Christopher Paolini’s “Eragon” books and wherever readers enjoy fantasies.
