Summary ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Robert Beatty Robert Beatty ↠ 8 Review Summary ☆ Serafina and the Black Cloak 108 Звукът приближаваше все повече докато в един момент силуетът с черния плащ стигна до покоите на БрейдънСпря Не помръдваше Сякаш ги усещаше от другата страна на вратата Знаеше че са в стаятаСерафина чуваше дишането му Усети противната воня която се носеше от плаща и проникваше в стаята през процепа на врататаЧерният плащ започна да се приплъзва бавно Чу се зловещото му потракване Дръжката на вратата се завъртяНикога не сте срещали момиче като СерафинаНа дванайсет тя е дребничка за възрастта си дявол. Review also found at Serafina is a 12 year old girl who lives in the Vanderbilt mansion called the Bilt Estate with her pa Well they don t exactly live there properly They secretly live in the basement and no one knows she exists Her pa is the maintenance man and never really told her about where she came from or who her mother was until a man in a black cloak comes and children start disappearing So this is probably not exactly Young Adult and geared towards older kidsyounger teens but it s a solid fantasy tale about an unusual girl who is than she appears and who ends up saving the day of course I liked Serafina Even though she didn t really know anything about herself she was strong and still followed her instincts At first I was annoyed with her dad but I ended up understanding why he did what he did and besides this is for a younger crowd so you have to kind of not analyze things too much For example and I don t think this a spoiler but Serafina only wore large man shirts tied at the waist with an old rope or belt and for an adult it s like come on she could have gotten some hand me downs no matter how poor they were But it makes for a certain charm and adds to who Serafina is She cares about catching rats than what she is wearing and her pa is too busy fixing machines in the Vanderbilt s basement I could emotionally relate to the idea that some people resonate with animals and nature than other people and Serafina meets a kindred spirit who is like her in that respect This isn t a complicated book but it s cute and well written for its target audience Gorgeous cover though am I rightBuddy Read with the Saucy Wenches group in July 2015

This was kind of disappointing I don t know what I was expecting but this book was very slow While I was learning about Seraphina and her life at the start it was interesting but then the story almost completely halted It was just description after description and I was getting bored The characters were one dimensional and didn t seem very authentic The story was uite predictable but it wasn t a horrible story I might read the next one as I m willing to give it a chance but I ll see

I saw the book trailer for this and thought Hmmm Fascinating I want to read thisTurns out that trailer is pretty much the abridged version of the entire storyI d 25 this puppy It s not bad but I ve come to expect better from Disney Hyperion I had some problems as a grown up readerThe first thing that bothered me speech patterns are all over the place especially for Serafina who hops between uneducated vernacular she calls horses hoof stompers as if she had to make up her own word for them because she didn t know what they were despite the fact she s well read and she apparently spies on people all the time including the people around the stables to contemporary sarcasm Oh great If I can t see I m gonna get lost for sure p 133 to new age envisioning The wolf doesn t know I m here I m one with the forest I m camouflaged and silent Other characters display some of this as well but not to the same extent as SerafinaAnd then there was the problem of stereotyping female behaviorchokengtitiktitikchokeng 166 171 huge problem I m going to ask you a uestion she said All right he said softly sitting up in his bed When you look at me what do you see Braeden went uiet and did not answer The uestion seemed to scare him What do you mean When you look at me do you seedo you seea normal girl Clara Brahms is different than Anastasia Tostonova and you are different than both of them he said We re all different in our own way I understand what you re saying but am I She faltered She didn t know how to ask it Am I strange looking Do I act strange Am I some sort of weird creature or something It stunned her when he did not reply right away when he did not immediately deny it He didn t say anything at all He hesitated For a long time Every second that went by was like a dagger in her heart because she knew it was true Serafina looked at Braeden and she spoke very softly not sure she wanted to know the answer to the uestion she was about to ask Was it like that when you met me I don tI Would you just as soon I go she said uietly trying to understand No it sit s hard to explain Try she said praying that he wasn t just abut to tell her that he felt nothing for her and just wanted to be alone When I met you it wasdifferent he said I wanted to know who you were When you ran down the stairs and disappeared I was frantic to find you again I searched all over every floor I checked every closet and looked under every bed Everyone else was looking for Clara Brahms may God be with her but I was looking for you Serafina When my aunt and uncle decided to send me away to the Vances I pitched a fit of temper like they d never seen before You should ve seen the look on their faces They had no idea what had gotten into me Serafina smiled You really didn t want to leave Bilt that bad Still smiling she took a few steps forward and sat on the edge of the bed beside him You have no idea how my heart leapt when I saw stupid old Crankshod shaking the daylights out of you in the porte cochere he said I thought There she is There she is I can save her Yes you are different Serafinavery differentmaybe even strange like you sayI don t knowbut His words faded and he did not continue But maybe that s all right with you she said tentatively thinking she understood him Yes I think it s what I like about you he said and there was a long pause between them So we re friends she said finally her heart beating as she waited for his answerNow the overly dramatic writing irked me but that s because I m old and bitter Writing aside here s what I uestion after moments like the one above Serafina is a partially feral basement dwelling child who is well read but stays hidden during the day and catches rats in the Bilt Estate at night We know there s something different about her we just don t know what She s only been exposed to culture via books and has gleaned whatever social knowledge she has from spying on people around the estate Given all that why is she acting like a couette around Braeden fishing for compliments on her looks and wanting to be reassured that she s not weird Why does she differentiate between male and female roles Does this all come from the books she s read She s learned nothing but patriarchy and emotional manipulation Why did it have to go this wayAt the end reinforcing the problem I can t say I understand everything that happened but I do know a hero when I see one You mean heroine Mrs Vanderbilt saidBecause only men can be heroes you see Females have their own term and it s meant to convey less amounts of heroism because we all know that when you add ine to feminize a word you ve just cut its potency in halfNow remember these reactions are coming from a place of being sick of girls getting short shrifted for doing what would be considered awesome if a boy did it This is not the reaction pre and early teens are going to have when reading this storyAs a book for kids it is fun suspenseful a little scary a little romantic and fully adventurous I ve been recommending this to the 8 15 crowd all summer long my cousins especially after they visited the Bilt EstateIt s not a bad book even though I didn t like the writing It s appropriate for its audience and I think it will be well received It s just thatmaybe expect to have a talk about euality afterward
