En un reino mágico y sombrío en el que humanos y dragones conviven con una paz inestable, Seraphina es una música joven y talentosa que acaba de entrar en el coro de la corte. Allí, las intrigas políticas son el pan de cada día. Poco después de su llegada, una noticia atraviesa los muros de palacio: un miembro de la familia real ha sido asesinado. Inmediatamente, los cimientos de esa fachada de paz se resquebrajan. Para investigar el crimen, Seraphina se alía con el perspicaz Lucian Kiggs, capitán de la guardia real. Pero todo el mundo tiene secretos, y ella no es una excepción: lo que oculta haría que la condenaran a muerte. «Impresionante, maravillosamente escrito y con personajes bien definidos. Sus dragones son de los más interesantes que he visto en la literatura fantástica. No puedo esperar a leer lo próximo de Rachel Hartman». Christopher Paolini, autor de Eragon «Tanto a los adolescentes como a los adultos les encantará deslizarse por las mágicas calles de la ciudad de Seraphina. A mí, desde luego, me encantó». Maggie Stiefvater, autora de Temblor / Los lobos de Mercy Falls «¿Crees que lo has leído todo sobre dragones? ¿Crees que es un tema que ya no da más de sí? Seraphina hará que cambies de idea». Rick Riordan, autor de Percy Jackson «Un libro digno de atesorar, tan brillante como las escamas de un dragón y con una heroína que permanecerá para siempre en la memoria del lector». Naomi Novik, autora de la serie Temerario «Leer esta novela es como caer por la madriguera de Alicia y no querer salir jamás». Voice of Youth Advocates «Una novela única». School Library Journal «Espectacular». Booklist «En este debut espléndidamente escrito, humanos y dragones (capaces de adoptar forma humana, aunque no sentimientos humanos) han convivido en una paz inestable durante 40 años (...) Los libros sobre dragones son muy comunes, pero el resto no le llega a la suela del zapato (o a la garra) a Seraphina». Kirkus «Hartman da un soplo de aire fresco al explotado recurso de los dragones en la ficción». Washington Post «Seraphina consolida a Rachel Hartman como un fascinante nuevo talento».Publishers Weekly «A una idea original y repleta de acción, súmale una historia de amor gradual, música medieval y conspiraciones políticas (...) El resultado es el debut sobresaliente de una autora a la que no debes perder el rastro». Horn Book Magazine «Seraphina es una cautivadora e innovadora novela fantástica que, a través de los problemas entre dragones y humanos, hace una alegoría de los prejuicios reales a los que todos debemos enfrentarnos».

Nothing will ever mystify or challenge the Wonder. He masters entire libraries and languages with little effort. No equation, no problem is too difficult to solve. His casual conversations with ministers and philosophers decimate their vaunted beliefs and crush their cherished intellectual ambitions. The Wonder compels obedience and silence with a glance. His mother idolizes him as a god. Yet no one is more hated or alone than the Wonder. This is the chilling tale of Victor Stott, an English boy born thousands of years ahead of his time. Raised in the village of Hampdenshire, the strangely proportioned young Victor possesses mental abilities vastly superior to those of his fellow villagers. The incomprehensible intellect and powers of the Wonder inspire awe, provoke horror, and eventually threaten to rip apart Hampdenshire. Long recognized as a classic of speculative fiction but never before widely available, The Wonder is one of the first novels about a "superman." J. D. Beresford's subtle and intriguing story of a boy with superhuman abilities paved the way for such noted works as Philip Wylie's Gladiator and A. E. van Vogt's Slan
