Book Review – Serafina and the Black Cloak – Robert Beatty…

“Never go into the forest, for there are many dangers there, and they will ensnare your soul.”Serafina and her pa have secretly lived in the basement of the grand old house on the Biltmore Estate, surrounded by dark forests, for as long as Serafina can remember. She takes the greatest of care never to be seen. 
But when children at Biltmore start disappearing, only Serafina knows who the culprit is: a terrifying man in a black cloak who stalks the corridors at night. To solve the mystery, Serafina teams up with Braden Vanderbilt, the nephew of the estate’s owners. Their search for answers leads them into the very forest Serafina has always been taught to fear. There, they discover a legacy of magic, long forgotten – until now . . .
I was given an ARC by Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
A really well written and beautifully told story. I don’t know if I would class it as YA, maybe more older kids/teens. Definitely a one off story.
A four out of five star read.
I’m profoundly grateful to Netgalley and Egmont Publishing for my copy.
