Tess of the Road

Meet Tess, a brave new heroine from beloved epic fantasy author Rachel Hartman.

In the medieval kingdom of Goredd, women are expected to be ladies, men are their protectors, and dragons get to be whomever they want. Tess, stubbornly, is a troublemaker. You can’t make a scene at your sister’s wedding and break a relative’s nose with one punch (no matter how pompous he is) and not suffer the consequences. As her family plans to send her to a nunnery, Tess yanks on her boots and sets out on a journey across the Southlands, alone and pretending to be a boy.

Where Tess is headed is a mystery, even to her. So when she runs into an old friend, it’s a stroke of luck. This friend is a quigutl—a subspecies of dragon—who gives her both a purpose and protection on the road. But Tess is guarding a troubling secret. Her tumultuous past is a heavy burden to carry, and the memories she’s tried to forget threaten to expose her to the world in more ways than one.

Returning to the fascinating world she created in the award-winning and New York Times bestselling Seraphina, Rachel Hartman introduces readers to a new character and a new quest, pushing the boundaries of genre once again in this wholly original fantasy.

Why I’m Waiting: Rachel Hartman writes dragon novels that call to me. This one not only has a terrific premise, but that cover is so fierce!

  1. I have not heard of Tess of the Road until now, I have added it to my TBR. Indeed, I have an obsession with the words Fantasy, Dragons, Medieval and Kingdom; this book is a combination of them. I just want to have it right now.

  2. I love the cover of Everlife! What a gorgeous contrast to the other two books. It’s neat how there is no hourglass, just the half. I might binge-read the series when it is complete!

    I hope you enjoy these books when you get the chance to read them, ladies! Have a wonderful week. =)
