The Frozen Sea

Books to the ceiling, books to the sky, my pile of books is a mile high. How I love them! How I need them! I'll have a long beard by the time I read them!

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

What a wonderful, beautifully written novel. And so original - the dragons in this world may have difficulties with emotions but they are by no means two-dimensional characters.

 

 

 

I just adore that black and white cover - it's gorgeous! And I think the way the city is represented is so accurate. The novel has such an old world, European feel to it. I also really loved the characters - Seraphina was so relatable, and Kiggs was rather adorable. I also loved the mentions of the mental garden Seraphina created for herself, and the friends who joined her there. 

 

The way it ended has me hoping that it will be a series - I don't think I could handle that ending if it is just a singular novel!
