Seraphina took the literary world by storm with 8 starred reviews and numerous “Best of” lists. At last, her eagerly awaited sequel has arrived—and with it comes an epic battle between humans and dragons.
 
The kingdom of Goredd: a world where humans and dragons share life with an uneasy balance, and those few who are both human and dragon must hide the truth. Seraphina is one of these, part girl, part dragon, who is reluctantly drawn into the politics of her world. When war breaks out between the dragons and humans, she must travel the lands to find those like herself—for she has an inexplicable connection to all of them, and together they will be able to fight the dragons in powerful, magical ways.
 
As Seraphina gathers this motley crew, she is pursued by humans who want to stop her. But the most terrifying is another half dragon, who can creep into people’s minds and take them over. Until now, Seraphina has kept her mind safe from intruders, but that also means she’s held back her own gift. It is time to make a choice: Cling to the safety of her old life, or embrace a powerful new destiny?

“Beautifully written, well-rounded characters, and some of the most interesting dragons I’ve read in fantasy for a long while. An impressive debut novel; I can’t wait to see what Rachel Hartman writes next.”
—Christopher Paolini, New York Times bestselling author of Eragon
 
“A novel that will appeal to both fans of Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series and Robin McKinley’s The Hero and the Crown.”
—Entertainment Weekly
Award-winning Rachel Hartman's newest YA is a tour de force and an exquisite fantasy for the #metoo movement.

"Tess of the Road is astonishing and perfect. It's the most compassionate book I've read since George Eliot's Middlemarch." --NPR

In the medieval kingdom of Goredd, women are expected to be ladies, men are their protectors, and dragons can be whomever they choose. Tess is none of these things. Tess is. . . different. She speaks out of turn, has wild ideas, and can't seem to keep out of trouble. Then Tess goes too far. What she's done is so disgraceful, she can't even allow herself to think of it. Unfortunately, the past cannot be ignored. So Tess's family decide the only path for her is a nunnery.

But on the day she is to join the nuns, Tess chooses a different path for herself. She cuts her hair, pulls on her boots, and sets out on a journey. She's not running away, she's running towards something. What that something is, she doesn't know. Tess just knows that the open road is a map to somewhere else--a life where she might belong.

Returning to the spellbinding world of the Southlands she created in the award-winning, New York Times bestselling novel Seraphina, Rachel Hartman explores self-reliance and redemption in this wholly original fantasy.

En un reino mágico y sombrío en el que humanos y dragones conviven con una paz inestable, Seraphina es una música joven y talentosa que acaba de entrar en el coro de la corte. Allí, las intrigas políticas son el pan de cada día. Poco después de su llegada, una noticia atraviesa los muros de palacio: un miembro de la familia real ha sido asesinado. Inmediatamente, los cimientos de esa fachada de paz se resquebrajan.

Para investigar el crimen, Seraphina se alía con el perspicaz Lucian Kiggs, capitán de la guardia real. Pero todo el mundo tiene secretos, y ella no es una excepción: lo que oculta haría que la condenaran a muerte.

«Impresionante, maravillosamente escrito y con personajes bien definidos. Sus dragones son de los más interesantes que he visto en la literatura fantástica. No puedo esperar a leer lo próximo de Rachel Hartman». Christopher Paolini, autor de Eragon

«Tanto a los adolescentes como a los adultos les encantará deslizarse por las mágicas calles de la ciudad de Seraphina. A mí, desde luego, me encantó». Maggie Stiefvater, autora de Temblor / Los lobos de Mercy Falls

«¿Crees que lo has leído todo sobre dragones? ¿Crees que es un tema que ya no da más de sí? Seraphina hará que cambies de idea». Rick Riordan, autor de Percy Jackson

«Un libro digno de atesorar, tan brillante como las escamas de un dragón y con una heroína que permanecerá para siempre en la memoria del lector». Naomi Novik, autora de la serie Temerario

«Leer esta novela es como caer por la madriguera de Alicia y no querer salir jamás». Voice of Youth Advocates

«Una novela única». School Library Journal

«Espectacular». Booklist

«En este debut espléndidamente escrito, humanos y dragones (capaces de adoptar forma humana, aunque no sentimientos humanos) han convivido en una paz inestable durante 40 años (...) Los libros sobre dragones son muy comunes, pero el resto no le llega a la suela del zapato (o a la garra) a Seraphina». Kirkus

«Hartman da un soplo de aire fresco al explotado recurso de los dragones en la ficción». Washington Post

«Seraphina consolida a Rachel Hartman como un fascinante nuevo talento».Publishers Weekly

«A una idea original y repleta de acción, súmale una historia de amor gradual, música medieval y conspiraciones políticas (...) El resultado es el debut sobresaliente de una autora a la que no debes perder el rastro». Horn Book Magazine

«Seraphina es una cautivadora e innovadora novela fantástica que, a través de los problemas entre dragones y humanos, hace una alegoría de los prejuicios reales a los que todos debemos enfrentarnos». Bookpage
