Serafina and the Black Cloak (Serafina, book 1) by Robert BeattyFirst of all, the cover is absolutely beautiful. Second of all, I actually enjoyed this story. Very often, I plunge into the pages of a popular novel and find myself unimpressed by its contents. But Robert Beatty has impressed me with the first novel in his Serafina series. Not only is he a good writer, but Beatty paints a fantastic backdrop for his story's heroine: year-old Serafina, deformed, golden-eyed and nocturnal, a "creature of the night. Set in the world of Asheville, North Carolina, Serafina and her father secretly live in the basement of the grand Biltmore Estate. Serafina's adoptive father, the estate's mechanic, cautions his daughter to never be seen by the Vanderbilts or their guests, and to never go into the deep parts of the forest.
