Shadow Scale - Rachel Hartman

At the end of this book, the author writes, "This book was a beast to write."

I can believe it. 

I have waited YEARS for this book having fallen in love with Seraphina more than seven years ago. Shadow Scale may have been a beast to write, but it was a glorious beauty to read.

I always say that there just aren't enough books with dragons. Well, this fills my need. It will yours too.
