Goredd: A kingdom where dragons and humans live side by side. Theirs is a relationship fraught with friction and hostility, however; and tensions mount when the heir to the throne is murdered, presumably by a dragon. The situation is especially dangerous for Seraphina, a human-dragon crossbreed, when she is dragged into the investigation of the prince's death.— Mayan, Tattered Cover Teen Advisory Board member

“Here is a new and original voice that will set the Dragon genre on its ear! Seraphina has an incredible musical talent, one that she must not flaunt in case she draws attention to herself. For Seraphina is no ordinary girl; she is a half-dragon living in a human world that despises all dragons. In this lush world full of secrets and intriguing characters, readers will completely lose themselves. An exciting book!”
