Omg love! Interesting, really different, dragons, fabulous heroine. Some aspects of the plot were a little clunky, but still, love! I read it in a day. ( )

I loved the dragons in this book! The world was very unique and well developed. ( )

This was a reread. After absolutely loving [b:Tess of the Road|35046472|Tess of the Road (Tess of the Road, #1)|Rachel Hartman|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1503599285l/35046472._SY75_.jpg|53793345], I decided to go back to the roos of Godredd for the first time in four years. I have to say, it's better upon the reread but even bore that, I was very alarmed that I was the only person in four years to have taken this our from the library, including the person who gotten it out the first week before I did. This book is really good and original. So original in fact, that I did not like it upon my first reading because it did not have the epic sense of dragons I was looking for and instead gave them their own original characterization. Now I do have more of an appreciation for how the author considers what it would be like to live with dragon and war against them in a way I haven't read about, ever, I believe. This book a truly original and refr3eshing and I would recommend it to only the hardcore fantasy lovers. ( )

Seraphina has lived her life hiding the truth about who she is; a half-dragon. Her mother died in childbirth, and until that moment her father never knew that the woman he loved was a dragon in human form. Interbreeding is reviled, the products of such a relationship are despised abominations, sins made flesh. And so he hides that fact from all, even from Seraphina, until the truth breaks free.

She too tries to keep it hidden. She tries to keep her whole existence hidden in fact, out of sight and out of mind. But she is a gifted musician and when she becomes assistant to the court musician she can no longer remain overlooked.

I put off reading this book for a long time. I’m not sure if it was the cover or the fact that it uses a quotation by Chrisopher Paolini as a recommendation. But certainly I don’t like the UK cover. Look at it. Okay, the evil eye and the city wall background are fairly generic and do the standard job of letting you know that this is a mediaeval-esque fantasy. But the picture of Seraphina. I hate it. And I’m pretty sure she describes herself as having dark hair in the book. Not red. Also she goes to some effort hide her dragon scales, so you know, showing them off for everyone to see seems a little out of character. The US cover is much prettier, even if it is does echo Novik’s Temerarie series a tad too much.

And to use that quote by Paolini, who wrote such standard and by the numbers epic fantasy. That was almost enough to put me off. But I’d read so many positive things about it. And eventually I got around to reading it, in time for this year’s Once Upon a Time reading challenge. And I really enjoyed it.

In many ways it is a very simple story, well told. A coming-of-age story in many ways. Told in first person narration this is Seraphina’s story. Utterly and completely, the story of her coming to terms with who and what she is, with who her mother and father are, and what they went through. The typical teen story, albeit with the addition of dragons :)

And of course it is also a story about prejudice and could probably be interpreted in many different ways as being about an outsider in society, whether that society is that of Goredd in the book, or some real life place. Because some people will always find themselves, through no fault of their own, as thinking that they have something to hide, that there is something wrong with them. Seraphina gradually learns that she is who she is, and that some people may hate her for that, but she has to accept her own nature and she will find that plenty of other people will accept who she is too.

But it isn’t a book that tries to shove that message down your throat. That is simply the device used to move both Seraphina and the plot throughout the novel. It serves the story, rather than the story serving the message. An important distinction that means Seraphina never becomes preachy and annoying.

It is a well told story, very engaging, I will be reading the follow up when I can get my hands on it. And her dragons, although not totally unique, are fairly interesting and different enough from most of those I’ve read about to bring something a little new to the table. I particularly liked the memories that they could pass on and their interest in maths. The emotional detachment I hope gets investigated further, because it seems something artificially created. But that is for another book, hopefully.

Really really good. Unlike so much fantasy set in the Middle Ages, this creates a medieval world that feels real and textured and has the problems the real Middle Ages dealt with. And the heroine is just great - likeable while still being flawed, a strong personality without being a stereotypical kick-butt heroine. ( )

Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
I usually practiced smiling while I slathered my scales with goo, figuring that if I could smile through that, I could smile through anything. Today I really didn't have the time.
We were all monsters and bastards. And we were all beautiful.
(page 90)

"My faith should not come easily;
There is no Heaven without pain.
My days should never flutter past
Unnoted, nor my past remain
Beyond its span of usefulness;
Le me not hold to grief.
My hope, my light, my Saint is love;
In love my one belief."
(page 142-143)

The vagabond sun winks down through the trees,
While lilacs, like memories, waft on the breeze,
My friend, I was born for soft days such as these,
To inhale perfume,
And cut through the gloom,
And feast like a king upon peaches and cheese!
I'll travel this wide world and go where I please,
Can't stop my wandering, it's like a disease.
My only regret as I cross the high seas;
what I leave behind,
Though I hope to find,
My own golden city of peaches and cheese!
(page 144)

I'll ask my true love, and I'll hope she agrees,
How could she not, when I'm down on my knees?
My Jill, say you will, and don't be such a tease.
When it's time to eat,
I say sweets to the sweet,
My love, let your answer be peaches and cheese!
