Waiting on Wednesday (96)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.   

This week, I'm waiting on:

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Release date: July 10, 2012


Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty's anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high.

Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen's Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints of a sinister plot to destroy the peace, Seraphina struggles to protect her own secret, the secret behind her musical gift, one so terrible that its discovery could mean her very life.

In her exquisitely written fantasy debut, Rachel Hartman creates a rich, complex, and utterly original world. Seraphina's tortuous journey to self-acceptance is one readers will remember long after they've turned the final page.

I think this sounds very promising! I love books about dragons and I liked the prequel.

Another book I'm waiting for with great anticipation:

The cover was just revealed and I can't wait to find out more about The Indigo Spell. I'm guessing that it is Eddie on the cover with Sydney and Adrian?



  1. I'm really excited about Seraphina too-dragons!!!! I've heard the beginning is kind of slow but that it then picks up so I hope I can stick with it.

  2. Great choice

  5. Oh, Serpahina sounds amazing. I've been seeing it around, but didn't bother to read the synopsis. Now that I'm a fantasy high, this sounds amazing!
