Waiting on Wednesday: Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman

Waiting on Wednesday was hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. This meme spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

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.
