Review: Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty

Serafina and the Black Cloak - Robert Beatty


Serafina and the Black Cloak is the first book in the Serafina trilogy. Serafina is determined to rescue the children taken by the man in a black cloak. 

Plot 5/5: A good mystery that kept me guessing.

Characters 5/5: Interesting characters who I grew to love, and others I disliked quite a bit.

World building 5/5: This story is set in the Biltmore Estate and the surrounding areas. I had never heard of this place, but after reading this story, I would love to visit.

Pacing 5/5: The pacing was fairly quick, with slower parts here and there.

Writing 5/5: The author's writing is very good, and the story telling kept me entertained.

Overall 5/5: I really loved this story. It's a mystery, but also a story of acceptance and finding out who you are, where you're from, and where you fit in. 

Favorite Quote:

"Our character isn't defined by the battles we win or lose, but by the battles we dare to fight." - a grave marker in a cemetery.

Favorite characters: Serafina, Braeden, Gidean, and Waysa.
