Seraphina - Rachel Hartman A beautiful exploration of self, forgiveness, and cultural differences. SERAPHINA reminded me of PEGASUS and GRACELING, and this comparison is meant in the best possible way. The world building was interesting without being alienating, and Hartman developed her characters without forcing any villain too far into caricature. I'm very interested to see how the love interest works out. I don't know if Hartman downplayed the love triangle as Seraphina is young, inexperienced, and not anticipating hurting a friend, or if that was just to gloss over the issue for a later book, but I'm looking forward to finding out. I've already got a list of people I need to pass my copy on to, I can't wait to share this book.
