I feel really excited and fortunate today because I’m hosting a giveaway in partnership with Disney-Hyperion !!
Believe it or not I’ve been sworn to secrecy by the author himself Robert Beatty not to give ANY spoilers in my review of his latest book Serafina and the Splintered Heart, the last book in his Serafina series.
I can say that you have to go and get this book immediately. Robert Beatty is a skilled storyteller weaving local lore, history, while giving a perspective of his characters that I’ve never ever encountered in a book before. As you might imagine, I read a lot of books in a year. It’s hard to believe that this is a third book in a series. It could easily be a stand alone and the unique perspective Robert writes it from had me turning the pages so fast I nearly won an award for speed reading. Through out the last few years as each Serafina book has been revealed, she has become a neighborly friend. I live just two hours from her stomping ground and each visit to the Biltmore Estate has me seeing it from Serafina and Braeden’s perspective. What a great gift writer Robert Beatty has given us.
Here’s a little bit more about the book:
Serafina and the Splintered Heart
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.

The Scoop on…
I invited you to come a visit the Biltmore Estate where all three of the Serafina books take place. We have beautiful mountains and I can think of no better book adventure than to grab your Serafina books and GO TO THE HILLS.
The Biltmore Estate is the most beautiful home in a America. Built at the turn of the 20th century by George Vanderbilt. His home boasts 250 rooms and a 175,000 sq feet a fine incredible living. Not only is the house exquisite but the grounds are stunningly beautiful and then the view of the mountains on top of that.
We make many seasonal pilgrimages to Biltmore every year. They have restaurants with good local regional food that make children very happy. They also have places you can stay at a variety of price levels and beautiful hiking and biking trails. It is a perfect place to take yourself and the family.
