#BookReview: Serafina and the Splintered Heart (Serafina #3) by @BeattyAuthor @DisneyHyperion #Giveaway

Welcome to the first post of today. I am so sad to see this series end as I just found it but man did it end with a bang. Check this one out!  
 
The storms are coming....Something has happened to Serafina. She has awoken into a darkness she does not understand, scarred from a terrible battle, only to find that life at Biltmore Estate has changed in unimaginable ways. Old friends do unthinkable things and enemies seem all around. 
A mysterious threat moves towards Biltmore, a force without a name, 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. 
With only days to achieve the impossible, Serafina fights to reclaim herself as the Guardian of Biltmore, friend of Braeden, daughter of her Pa, and heroine of the Blue Ridge Mountains and all the folk and creatures that call it home. 
In the epic third installment of Robert Beatty's #1 bestselling series, Serafina takes her rightful place among literary champions as she battles fiercely to defend all she loves and become everything that she is meant to be.





Robert Beatty lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina with his wife and three daughters who help create and refine his stories. He loves to explore the grand Biltmore Estate and the darkened forest trails where his novels take place. Mr. Beatty's Disney-Hyperion novel "Serafina and the Black Cloak" became a New York Times Bestseller the first week it was launched and remain on the list for 20 weeks. He writes full-time now, but in his past lives, he was one of the early pioneers of cloud computing, the founder/CEO of Plex Systems, the co-founder of Beatty Robotics, and the chairman/CTO of Narrative Magazine. In 2007, he was named an Entrepreneur of the Year. When asked about the inspiration for his book, Robert said, "Serafina's journey grew out of my desire to write a story about an unusual and heroic young girl for my three daughters."




I am so very sad to see this series end already. Especially since I just found the wonder that is Serafina. This book was so good I couldn't put it down and I read it right along with Royal Bastards.  If you not a middle grader thats ok if you love fantasy you will love this one. Robert Beatty has created one of the best stories that I have ever read.  

This one picks up after book two and it starts out with a bang! It pulled me in by the throat and man it didn't let me go for one bit. The pacing in this one was fast and it worked out perfectly.  All the characters blend together to create one killer title that I just couldn't let go of.  Every once in a while I find a title that just blows me away and this year its this one. Everything comes to a head in this one and Serafina has to see it to the end. I loved everything about this one and I know that if you choose to pick it up you will as well. Don't let this one slip through your fingers. 


In the end this series has been one of the best that I have read. And although I thought this was the end I have been happily surprised to find out that it isn't! The author is writing a new series with a new character named Willa. The new series is also set at the Biltmore, but is later in time.  I have to tell you I can't wait to get a release date and I can't wait to pick it up!
