Waiting on Wednesday (3)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where you show case an up-coming book that you just can't wait to get your hands on! So, without further ado... 

    by Rachel Hartman
"Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty's anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high.
Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen's Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints of a sinister plot to destroy the peace, Seraphina struggles to protect her own secret, the secret behind her musical gift, one so terrible that its discovery could mean her very life."
After hearing amazing things about this book from Liz at Midnight Bloom Reads and Misty at The Book Rat, I just had to check it out.... And doesn't this book sound so AWESOME?! It's been a while since I've read a high-fantasy novel, and I think I know where I'm going to get my fix. I watched the trailer for Seraphina earlier today (here), and I absolutely LOVED it! I can't wait till this book comes out so I can get my hands on a copy of it to read!

So excited!

What are you guys waiting on this wednesday? :)
