Inside this Book – At the center of the cathedral stood a model of Heaven called the Golden House. Its roof unfolded like a fl ower to reveal a human-sized hollow, in which the body of poor Prince Rufus lay shrouded in gold and white. His feet rested upon the House’s blessed threshold; his head lay cradled by a nest of gilded stars. At least, it should have been. Prince Rufus’s killer had de- capitated him. The Guard had scoured forest and marshland, looking in vain for the prince’s head; he was to be buried with- out it. I stood upon the steps of the cathedral quire, facing the fu- neral. From the high balcony pulpit to my left, the bishop prayed over the Golden House, the royal family, and the noble mourners crowding the heart of the church. Beyond a wooden railing, com- mon mourners fi lled the cavernous nave. As soon as the bishop fi nished his prayer, I was to play the Invocation to St. Eustace, who escorted spirits up the Heavenly Stair. I swayed dizzily, terri- fi ed, as if I had been asked to play fl ute upon a windy cliff. In fact, I had not been asked to play at all. I was not on the program; I had promised Papa when I left that I wouldn’t perform in public. I had heard the Invocation once or twice, but never be- fore played it. This wasn’t even my flute.
Inside this book –Seraphina PDF Book by Rachel Hartman – Orma had a scholar’s exemption from the bell, so few people ever realized he was a dragon. He had his quirks, certainly: he never laughed; he had little comprehension of fashion, man- ners, or art; he had a taste for diffi cult mathematics and fabrics that didn’t itch. Another saarantras would have known him by smell, but few humans had a keen enough nose to detect saar, or the knowledge to recognize what they were smelling. To the rest of Goredd, he was just a man: tall, spare, bearded, and bespecta- cled. The beard was false; I pulled it off once when I was a baby. Male saarantrai could not grow beards under their own power, a peculiarity of transformation, like their silver blood. Orma didn’t need facial hair to pass; I think he just liked the way it looked. He waved his hat at me, as if there were any chance I didn’t see him. “You still rush your glissandi, but you seem finally to have mastered that uvular fl utter,” he said, dispensing with any greet- ing. Dragons never see the point. “It’s nice to see you too,” I said, then regretted the sarcasm, even though he wouldn’t notice it. “I’m glad you liked it.” He squinted and cocked his head to one side, as he did when he knew he was missing some crucial detail but couldn’t work out what. “You think I should have said hello fi rst,” he hazarded. I sighed. “I think I’m too tired to care that I fell short of tech- nical perfection.”
