Seraphina by: Rachel Hartman
Seraphina is a delicately woven tale, full of breathtaking music, sacrifice, and a heroin’s struggle to find belonging in a world turned against her. The book sweeps its readers into a whirlwind of romance, fear, love and hate while simultaneously incorporating a strong theme of music with every turn of its pages. One of my favorite characteristics of the book is how personal the author makes everything. With every experience our heroine went through, the emotion was always there. It was as if the reader was standing just feet away from the characters peering into their lives, experiencing everything with them while still keeping the suspense and rapid pace that is such an appealing asset of the book.
