I absolutely loved being lost in this world and I can't wait until I can go back to it with the sequel! The characters were complex and endearing, the plot mysterious and compelling, and the world building fantastically detailed. My heart broke for Seraphina as she lived with her secret and the guilt of having to hide it. The political intrigue was exciting and I appreciated the way they tried to solve their problems through diplomacy. The dragons reminded me of Vulcans with their insistence on reason and distaste for emotion. I'd give this to fans of traditional fantasy and dragons. Lovers of math, music, and outsider stories will enjoy it as well.
