Seraphina, by Rachel Hartman -- this appears to be a first novel. If I ever write a first novel that's as good and well balanced and well paced and well plotted (mostly, some tiny problems there when you really think about it) and has such interesting characters and interesting world as this -- a fascinating take on dragons...I will be very happy. As it is, I'm sort of jealous.

Fortress of Ice, by C. J. Cherryh -- so, suddenly in 2007 Cherryh decided she wanted to write about children/young adults caught up in her usual political plots? (Deliverer, the first Foreigner book with the young atevi Cajeiri as a point of view character, was also published in 2007.) But really, I love Cherryh's children/young adults, Elfwyn and Aewyn here and Cajeiri in the Foreigner books...but I missed the level of complicated in politics that previous books had. There was more personal plot, and I'm not sure the personal plot worked as well as the politics as a mix with the mystical sort of magic in these books, either. (I ended up a bit confused by the ending.) But that might just be me.
