Wow, I cried, cheered and laughed all my way through this book. I haven't read a fantasy novel this good in a long time. I was so intrigued by Seraphina's character. She showed bravery, quickness, and ability to stay true to who she is. Seraphina had me from the beginning of thefirst chapter, making me fall in love with its world. I had to take my time and let this novel engulf my mind with the details that Hartman has created. I wanted more pages by the time I was finished. I am so looking forward to the next one.
