Review: Serafina And The Black Cloak by Robert Beatty

20 March, 2017 Book Reviews 7 [simple-rating stars="five-stars"]

I will confess that it’s been quite some time since I read a middle grade/young adult book, but perusing my children’s family night book fair, I came across this book. I read the back of it and noticed one thing. Biltmore. Living in North Carolina, a few hours away from the Biltmore, I thought it would be the perfect dive back into the wonderful world of innocence and fun. I wasn’t wrong!

Serafina and The Black Cloak is a wonderful start to Mr. Beatty’s Serafina series. I read this in two sittings and loved every minute of this read! Serafina’s character is wonderful and I loved following her along the halls of the Biltmore Estate. The story is filled with just the right amount of kid-friendly mystery and is perfect for those curious minds that love to seek out clues and solve the puzzle.

Serafina’s search for answers on the disappearances within the walls of the magnificently built estate, and the lovely story line, Mr. Beatty has just become my favorite author for books like this. I am already looking forward to reading book 2, Serafina and the Twisted Staff. If it’s anything like this book, it will be just as captivating and filled with tremendous doses  of 5 star worthy moments! Fantastically done, Mr. Beatty. Fantastically done.

      Thank you! I am excited to get my hands on the second copy….it’s all ordered via the Scholastics Book Fair at my child’s school but they ran out. So it’s paid for just gotta get it in! This is one series I can read again and again, I’m certain.

    I like a little mystery, but I could deal without the magical element. Overall, it seems like it would be a good read. What also drew me is I happen to know someone with the name Serafina.
