Serafina and the black cloak

By Robert Beatty

ISBN:  978-1484709016

Disney-Hyperion 2015


“Never go into the forest, for there are many dangers there, and they will ensnare your soul.”

What a grand trailer with obviously plenty of thought put in to its production. I love the atmospheric music running through the trailer as it creates a moodiness that makes me just want to dive right in. The cover of the book is also one that immediately catches the eye with its Gothic type mansion and silhouette of a young girl . It has already been voted number one Middle Grade Book of 2015 on Goodreads.

Serafina and the Black Cloak is a spooky mystery-thriller from Disney Hyperion about an unusual girl who lives secretly in the basement of the grand Biltmore Estate in 1899″. For years Serafina has remained hidden in the basement of the Estate where her father works. She moves in and out of the hidden doorways, unseen and unheard. She does as she is told and keeps away from everyone but soon children begin disappearing and it becomes clear to Serafina that she must do something to find them. Following clues and a terrifying man in a black cloak, Serafina risks everything to find answers. I really am looking forward to reading this book.
