Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman

3 gnomes and a gnome hat out of 5 gnomes
The beginning has a weird set up but I guess it’s a good way to go into what happened in the first book/recap it all. It just kind of threw me for a bit of a loop and took a while to get back into the story.
That was quite a twist on a love triangle that you don’t see every day. I think I would have liked to see more of the future of everything.
Seraphina’s search and struggles lead to meeting some really fascinating characters. The different half-dragons were really full of surprises.
There was kind of a messy feel to it all ending wise and some of the characters I feel really weren’t discussed enough I just want to know more about the various half-dragons.
Overall this was pretty great, not what I expected at all though. There is an epic fantasy feel to it all. I wish it had talked about more how the world changed overall. I really really wanted to know what happened with all the quigs.
