I’m still talking about Seraphina when asked about what I’ve read this year, though I finished it several months ago. It was outstanding to me on multiple levels. I made a list of what I found in the book.
- music theory
- and more
Well as you can see, it made me think on several levels. I mostly agree with this review. It’s a bit long, but very accurate as to how I experienced the book. (True confession: I read both books and agree with their take on the second book too.)
A big part of this review is the expansion on Rachel Hartman’s ability to portray Seraphina’s mind work — what’s going on in her head. This is a fascinating aspect to the book and raises it above normal for this genre in my estimation.
Thank you for reading!
