I finally understand the rave reviews for this book. Gosh.I've never really read fantasy and this book just blew me away. Seraphina is so beautifully written and the world of Goredd is wonderfully crafted. I fell in love with almost all of the characters, especially Seraphina and Kiggs. Pardon me while I recollect my thoughts as I can't seem to type coherently, how much I love this book and its wonderful characters. And dragons!
