Meet Tess, a brave new heroine from beloved epic fantasy author
Rachel Hartman. b>
In the medieval kingdom of Goredd, women
are expected to be ladies, men are their protectors, and dragons get
to be whomever they want. Tess, stubbornly, is a troublemaker. You
can't make a scene at your sister's wedding and break a relative's
nose with one punch (no matter how pompous he is) and not suffer the
consequences. As her family plans to send her to a nunnery, Tess yanks
on her boots and sets out on a journey across the 'southlands, alone
and pretending to be a boy.
Where Tess is headed is a mystery,
even to her.
'so when she runs into an old friend, it's a stroke of luck.
This friend is a quigutl--a subspecies of dragon--who gives her both a
purpose and protection on the road. But Tess is guarding a troubling
secret. Her tumultuous past is a heavy burden to carry, and the
memories she's tried to forget threaten to expose her to the world in
more ways than one.
Returning to the fascinating world she
created in the award-winning and New York Times i> bestselling
'seraphina, i> Rachel Hartman introduces readers to a new
character and a new quest, pushing the boundaries of genre once again
in this wholly original fantasy.
