Shadow Scale

By Rachel Hartman

Release Date: March 10, 2015

 

About the Book


In her Morris Award-winning and New York Times bestselling debut, Rachel Hartman took our breath away with an utterly original alternative-medieval world full of dragons, Seraphina. This novel took the literary world by storm with 8 starred reviews and appeared on numerous “Best of” the year lists. Now Random House Children’s Books is proud to announce the release of SHADOW SCALE (Random House Children’s Books / On Sale March 10, 2015 / $18.99). At last, Rachel’s eagerly awaited sequel has arrived—with 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?

I love how they can sometimes have special elemental powers, such as ice, fire, ect.. These are powers I would like to have as well, and I want to be able to fly on one too

I love that dragons have such unique personalities depending upon the story they're in. For example, I think the dragons in Seraphina have such fascinating personalities!

I love the idea of Dragons. The amount of possibilities that comes with writing about a dragon. You can make them appear like a hybride or you can go dragon like in Eragon.

The best thing about dragons is that they come in all shapes and sizes and colors, yet they're all so magnificent and powerful and strong. Dragons are fierce and beautiful.

Gotta say my favorite thing about dragons is the amount of leeway you get when creating them. They're just such versatile fictional beings.

Dragons are basically massive, flying, fire breathing lizards and I think that's pretty cool! Plus, I've always wanted to fly on the back of one.
