Tess of the Road
Rachel Hartman
Expected Publication: February 27, 2018
Genre: YA Fantasy
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.
I love, love, LOVE the cover! I want to put it up on my wall in the living room. I want to make a bookmark, postcards, and stickers.

It's been three years since I've read Seraphina and I remember the rich and fantastic world-building. Always worth reading a show, not tell narrative.
