Braeden has been sent off to school in New York and Serafina keeps feeling as though something bad is about to happen at Biltmore, but it’s just a hunch. When the start of hunting season on a magical night starts a chain of events that brings strange creatures to the grounds of the estate, no one is safe. Serafina knows she has to protect Biltmore and the people in it, yet she can’t do it alone. A strange girl named Jess helps where she can, and Braeden’s return comes just in time. Even so, it will take all their resources to defeat the threat.
Serafina and the Seven Stars by Robert Beatty is another page turner in the series about a girl who changes from human to panther when needed, and the boy who has a special bond with animals. As expected, there’s lots of action and adventure, and there’s also weaving in of magical tales and myths to create a fast-paced story that entertains to the last page.
Beatty keeps the series going in a way sure to satisfy fans of the series. It’s great for readers aged 9 to 12 and up.
