I was given a free copy of this book as part of the blog tour for The Seraphina Series

Seraphina's Initiation was an excellent follow up to the first book in the series, Seraphina's Awakening! I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, much more than the previous one. Looking back, I think the first one was a major set up novel, and this is where all the action begins!! Seraphina's Initiation picks up right where the last book left off, and it just takes off

Seraphina’s Initiation

Seraphina’s Initiation is book two in the Seraphina series and another awesome book by Sheena.

As much as he wants it to stop there does not seem an end to it. When Jack experiences the supernatural world, he becomes engulfed in the light that it omits, it also causes him to double over while trying to regain hi

Seraphina’s Initiation is the second book in the Seraphina series by Sheena Hutchinson. The author has really supercharged this instalment. It is full of action and excitement, in fact I felt that the first book laid all the groundwork to prepare us for this book. The story is a fast paced and enthralling second addition to the series- Ms. Hutchinson seems to be really hitting her stride now and I am intrigued by the storyline and where the story seems to be headed.

Seraphina's Initiation is book two in the Seraphina series. After reading book 1 you are captivated and will want to keep reading more and more about these characters. In this second book we read more about Seraphina and Amanda and also Nate. seraphina starts having these dreams but not just dreams more like nightmares as she is trying to work all this out. Lucifer pays her a visit to make things even more complicated. As She begins to learn more and more about herself while her man-gel starts t ...more

I've been waiting for this book and it certainly didn't disappoint. This book is kind of a preclude to the big show with Lucifer in the next book. We get to see Sera almost get comfortable in her skin with the help of Nate and to a certain degree, Jack. I love how the author has written this series. I'm definitely ready for the showdown in the next book. Sera will be a sight to behold, that's for sure. ...more

I really liked this book, it was a perfect sequel to the first book. It moved a bit fast but it was intense and really interesting. I was hooked right away, which is not surprising since I loved the first book.

I loved watching Seraphina grow and learn about her powers. We also learn more about her and how she became the way she is now.

There are some awesome plot twists that I found interesting.

I received book 2 in exchange for a honest review.

After reading book 1, you are compelled to keep reading into book 2. The Initiation picks up exactly where the Awakening leaves off. I love stories about good vs evil, angels vs the devil. This story definitely lived up to my expectations from book 1. The characters were very likable and it was easy to picture what was going on, even when strange things were happening. As we found in book 1, Nate became a fallen angel when he saved Sera from dyin

I was sent both books and I have to say I loved this series. First off Nate is dreamy. There isn’t another word that fits him so well. No one man should be that perfect though, and he has his faults. He isn’t used to humans and their emotions. And when he saves Seraphina he becomes an fallen angel. He is pretty bad ass though. Now Seraphina is an angel already, somehow, we still haven’t figured that one out, but Nate gave her his blood to keep her from dying and that is when her angel side woke ...more

This such a solid, well written series! I love the genre and am always on the lookout for something new and so I found book one Seraphina: the awakening and devoured it in one sitting. Much like I did this one tonight, it's fast paced with shorter chapter length which I always love. I even enjoyed the point of view shifts with some chapters, typically I'm not a fan of this literary device but with this author she totally makes it work within the story so it feels organic and exactly how the stor ...more

I started reading this one and I had to stop myself from reading and message Sheena to tell her how much I was laughing about some of the character interactions.
We pick up right where book one leaves off and we have Nate and Sera really working hard to fight the evil that is taking over the town. Sera learns about herself, about her powers and she learns more about Jack.

She's still trying to adjust to life as a demon slayer, a woman with new looks and new powers, and her guardian angel Nathaniel must begin training her.

Here´s my quick review::

The book had its own story. I felt like it was a unique story that hasn´t been already written. I´ll admit that I felt like it was going to fast and couldn´t absorb what was going on, but it held my interest. The characters were always doing something new and surprising. I already can feel that this is going to be a great series and I really recommend it to ... everyone.

I am truly enjoying the character Seraphina, she is strong while simultaneously learning more about herself. I love strong women lead in books and this book I was no disappointment.

It picks up exactly where the Awakening leaves off. Readers will learn more about her, Nate, and Jack. I was not bored with the bad guys either. Another fast paced must read in one sitting, losing sleep book. I cannot wait for book three.

Seraphina’s Initiation Book 2 in The Seraphina Series by Sheena Hutchinson should be read after you read Seraphina’s Awakening. It will make so much more sense to read it in order.
For a relatively short book (only 188 pages) this book packs so much punch. It’s the continuing story of Seraphina Cross and the metamorphosis into her destiny. This is the story of good vs evil, angels vs demons, reality vs perception, awakening vs denial and finally it is the story of a girl learning who she really i

This is book two in the Seraphina series. It picks up where Seraphina’s Awakening ends. This one is a much faster paced novel. The good thing is the characters continue to grow. Seraphina learns more about her powers and what she can do. She still questions everything and sometimes doesn’t trust herself. Nate plays a bigger role and turns into the all time protector, showing Seraphina how to protect herself and fight if necessary. Jack makes an

Seraphina’s Initiation by Sheena Hutchinson is the second book in The Seraphina Series. I have not read the first book in this series but I did not find this to be a hinderance. The author did a good job introducing the characters without having to do a complete character profile. There were a few moments that I felt a little lost, as if I was missing some information that would have been explained in the first book.

Seraphina's Initiation is the second book in the Seraphina Series and it is just as riveting as the first. This picks up where we left off in the first book and it just doesn't stop until the very last word. For me, this was a great look into the very heart of our humanity. There is a depth of character so plainly displayed here that it felt almost too raw, too real. That's not to say that this book didn't have its light hearted side to it as well.

Seraphina’s Initiation (The Seraphina Series Book 2) by Sheena Hutchinson was a fast pace, action packed follow up, that had me hooked.

This is the second book in the Seraphina Series, and I will tell you, this book is everything I wanted the first book to be. Unpredictable, constantly moving plot, well developed and still growing characters, Twist, turnes, and pure action, made this book not only better the the first, but it beat it out of the water. I'm glad I stuck with this series.

I started reading Seraphina’s Initiation by Sheena Hutchinson and quickly realized that I needed to retract and read Seraphina’s Awakening. And boy was I glad. I would have been completely lost. So my suggestion is that you do not try and read this as a stand-alone.
