Beschreibung

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 listeners will remember long after the narrative ends.

Kritikerstimmen

"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 best-selling author of Eragon)
"A book worth hoarding, as glittering and silver-bright as dragon scales, with a heroine who insists on carving herself a place in your mind." (Naomi Novik, New York Times best-selling author of the Temeraire series)
"Seraphina is strong, complex, talented - she makes mistakes and struggles to trust, with good reason, and she fights to survive in a world that would tear her apart. I love this book!" (Tamora Pierce, New York Times best-selling author of the Beka Cooper series)

Hörerrezensionen

Hilfreichste

Wunderschöne Fantasy-Story, tolle Protagonistin

Rachel Hartmanns Drachen-Fantasy-Geschichte ist wunderbar geschrieben und von Mandy Williams sehr schön und in einem für Ausländer gut verständlichem Englisch gesprochen. Ich bin schon sehr gespannt auf den nächsten Teil, der leider erst 2015 kommen soll.
Der romantische Part der Geschichte ist kein bisschen kitschig geschrieben, sondern einfach nur schön. Vor allem lebt das Hörbuch von seinen einzigartigen Charakteren, die toll Portraitiert werden und für die die Sprecherin immer genau den richtigen Ton trifft.
