Synopsis

The kingdom of Goredd is populated by humans and by dragons who fold themselves into a human form. Though they live alongside each other, the peace between them is uneasy.



But when a member of the royal family is murdered, and the crime appears to have been committed by a dragon the peace and treaty between both worlds is seriously threatened . . .



Into this comes Seraphina, a gifted musician who joins the royal court as the assistant to the court composer. She is soon drawn into the murder investigation and, as she uncovers hints of a sinister plot to destroy the peace in Goredd for good, finds herself caught desperately in the middle of the tension.



For Seraphina hides a secret - the secret behind her musical gift - and if she is found out, her life is in serious danger . . .

It’s coming up to forty years since the peace treaty between Goredd and dragons was signed. Seraphina, the newly appointed musical assistant to Viridius at the palace, is preparing for the huge celebrations to mark the anniversary, which will b e attended by Ardmagar Cormonot, the leader of the dragons. When Prince Rufus is murdered, and all evidence points to a dragon, fear of and prejudice towards dragons is dialled up several notches. Seraphina somehow manages to find herself involved in the investigation into Prince Rufus’ death, and getting close to Prince Lucian Kiggs, the Captain of the Guard. But Seraphina has secrets, and drawing anyone’s attention could put her life in danger. How can she help solve the murder and stay to the shadows? An absolutely gripping, wonderful high fantasy!
