Review: Seraphina is a pollical court interior fantasy. Not much in the way of action goes on. There is a mystery but its low key. It a bit of a slow read but the chapters are short.

There is nothing new to dragons turning into people in fantasy books. I have come across a few books and some short stories. The dragons in this world are arrogant at times. They are like: poor puny humans. Without us, you wouldn't have advanced math, philosophy, and art.

It makes sense how some humans and dragons don't get along. The dragons suppress their human emotions that is probably why they are arrogant as well.

The narration is spectacular. I read some of the books for I have a copy and the writing is beautiful. I have said before in another review that the audiobook can help determine if the writing is good or not.

The plot does take a while before it gets going otherwise this is an enjoyable read where the story and
