Don’t miss the highly anticipated third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Serafina series: SERAFINA AND THE SPLINTERED HEART (On Sale July 4, 2017) by Robert Beatty, a dark middle grade historical fantasy series with a thrilling mystery, unique setting, and a bold, lovable heroine.
Something has happened to Serafina. She has awoken into darkness, scarred from a terrible battle, only to find that life at her home, the historic Biltmore Estate, has changed in unimaginable ways. Old friends do unthinkable things and enemies are all around. A mysterious threat moves towards Biltmore, bringing with it violent storms and flooding that stands to uproot everything in its path. Serafina must uncover the truth about what has happened to her, and find a way to harness her strange new powers before it’s too late.
Accessible storytelling with heart, Beatty’s writing grabs the reader immediately, and the high stakes and gripping mystery will keep them hooked. With an instantly loveable heroine, Serafina’s courage, pluck, and quirk—as well as her longing for friendship—make her impossible not to root for.
With a frightening premise and lurking danger reminiscent of Coraline and A Tale Dark and Grimm, SERAFINA AND THE SPLINTERED HEART is just dark and scary enough to keep readers on the edge of their seats and is filled with history, mystery, and magic.
