Very, very high. I mostly get books I've already read, this was one of the minority that I had never read. Excellent plot, likable characters, and it certainly creates a hunger for the next book! I can't wait.
I found this book by originally searching for Justine Eyre. She has a very small part in this book, and Mandy Williams does a great job narrating the larger part
What lies under your skin?
Well written, well plotted, amazing characters and very well read, definitely worthwhile!
Seraphina is a fantastic and flawed character and is surrounded by a number of others. The villain to the story was relatively easy to guess but the story isn't really intended as a murder mystery.
When she first remembers. The last talk with Lucien.
No, in the middle was a bit slow, the second part is better!
Its a great story, but I like more romance developing. The best part is the magic world it sets in. She is clever, but she makes dumb decisions...
Live naked, eat anything, feel no shame and kill monsters.
I did not get bored and the story was not foolishly predictable. Searching for a new author and new book is like eating everyflavorbeans, sometimes you get something good but alot of times you get earwax. This story was hot chocolate.
The battle between Phina's uncle and grandfather. Fruitbat was like a little half dragon Ninja.
I am looking forward to the next book.
Definitely one of the best books I've listened to all year, the narrator was great and the story was fresh and new.
I liked the uncle the best, he was very dry and witty which I guess is common for a Dragon in Seraphina's world.
If I had the time, sure! I listened to it over about 3 days while doing a bunch of filing at work, and it's pretty much the only thing that kept me sane during that time.
I have not read the print version but now that I have heard the audio edition, I would probably just listen to it again instead of reading the book.
Seraphina make me think of Kristin Cashore's books, Graceling and Fire, as they are also about a young woman with special abilities living at a palace and taking part in secretive, covert affairs.
I liked all the characters. Mandy Williams has a nice and interesting voice that is great for performing books.
I try to pace myself with audiobooks to make them last, but there were definitely times that I listened for an extra long time because I couldn't stop and had to find out what happened next.
Yes, the characters and the details were well made up and well written.
The pace. It didn't hurry to get to the fun/action, but didn't feel long either.
a very good fantasy. I never was much into dragons, but this book changed my mind
One of my top 5.
Graceling series and Cybele's secret.
I loved that they changed readers for Seraphina's mom it really added to the whole experience.
The story is brilliant. It's exactly what I look for in fantasy. Original and captivating I loved it to pieces.
The narrator did a great job. Very very happy about this book. I can't wait for the next.
I didn't realize this was a children's book until I was 1/2 through and I searched online for other similar books to read (because I was already worried about the separation anxiety I would experience when I finished it). This isn't just a well written story - it has depth and emotional complexity. I would say its in my top three books of the year (and I'm at 76 right now). I'm hoping for more from Seraphina by the same readers!
