Seraphina - Rachel Hartman I enjoyed this book. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was for some reason (and I have no idea what) it felt like something was missing. The story was exciting at times, and it also sometimes dragged. However, I couldn't put the book down which had me up until midnight to finish. I love it when books do that.

Honestly it didn't really feel like a YA novel. The characters were supposed to be about 16 but I kept invisioning about 21 or so because of their lifestyles and actions. Except for princess Glisselda; she definitely would have moments of acting like a teenager. Also, the vocabulary of the book was pretty advanced for a teen book in my opinion. There was even a lot of mathematics and politics that I had to take time to sort through.

I will definitely read the sequel... whenever that comes out.
