I’ve been a huge fan of Robert Beatty’s Serafina series since the first book came out, so you can imagine how excited I was when Robert Beatty books contacted me and asked if I would like to be an advanced reader for the fourth book in the series. This means writing an honest review on goodreads and Amazon, the Amazon one I will post after the book’s official release (July ninth).

Serafina and the seven stars follows Serafina, now a teenager, as she continues to watch over Biltmore estate as the

Robert Beatty has a gift of language and he shares that gift in his outstanding Serafina series! His young heroine has been tasked as the guardian of Biltmore Estate and in every book, Beatty creates a new, sinister villain and requires Serafina and her friend Braeden to use not only their unique gifts, but their intelligence and Biltmore’s impressive library to conquer each foe. In “Seven Stars,” Braeden is gone to New York for school and the peace on the estate does not seem genuine to Serafin ...more

I am always so excited to get the email letting me know that I will be an advanced reader for a Robert Beatty book.

I have loved this series since the beginning. And this book is an excellent addition to the first three. I always worry about getting involved in books that are in a series because I am afraid that they won’t be as good as the book that sucked me in; I had nothing to worry about here.
This book continues the excellence of the first three with a story that is just as compelling as t

Serafina and the Seven Stars is set in the 1900's at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. Although a fictional story one can visit the Biltmore Estate and find some of the places and things Serafina has seen or went to in the story. Serafina is always ready to defend Biltmore Estate and her friends against any enemy or dark force that may appear on the estate. An exhilarating and exciting book that keeps readers wanting to find out what happens to Serafina. Definitely will be a #1 b ...more

Such a great read! Loved the continued adventures of Serafina and all the other characters. In the previous books in the series, the Biltmore Estate has been the setting, but in this book the Biltmore is a main character! I'm going to have to go back and re-read, because I read it so fast to find out what happens! I love the inclusion of fantasy and magic and am already looking forward to the next in the series! I think the books get more and more intriguing with each new continuation of the lif ...more

Robert Beatty is a master wordsmith and this 4th installment of one of my all-time favorite characters did not disappoint. In fact, I’d dare to say it’s my favorite in the series! I was turning pages as quickly as I could to find out what would happen next. The creativity and the suspense created with the villains was incredible. I truly loved this book and cannot wait to highlight it in my 5th grade classroom with our “First Chapter Fridays.”

Written by my daughter, Kate Kilcoyne, who received an advance reader copy:

I loved Serafina and the Seven Stars! It is my favorite book in the series so far! There were some exciting new characters, and I loved getting to know them. Serafina is always so strong and courageous, and we get to see her face some new challenges. The storyline really brought me in, and I read the whole book in one day. It was AMAZING!!!

This book was very exciting and adventurous. I like how he included her half sister and half brother in the beginning of the book. Beatty added some fun interesting characters. It had some violent and gory parts, but overall it was a great book. Robert Beatty did it again with another amazing novel!

This is probably my favorite of all the Serafina books! Beatty has definitely started to “grow” the content of his books with his readers. It is super suspenseful and has some really great twists and turns; especially when you find out who the “bad guy” is. I have loved watching Serafina and Braeden grow during these 4 books and this one did not disappoint.

Such a fun read. The writing keeps you on your toes, wanting more. Each new challenge, followed by a moment of relief, gets immediately ratched back to a new tension and excitement. Love Serafina and the interrelated animal creatures. Really an exciting world worth coming back to again and again.

Robert Beatty has done it again with his newest Serafina book. 4th in the series, Serafina and the Seven Stars doesn't disappoint! I wondered where he would take us on this adventure with Serafina and her friends and family. Still based at Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC. Being a pass holder for many years at Biltmore Estate it's great when Mr Beatty give us facts about the house and property.It was hard to put down.

Serafina and the Seven Stars is book four in the Serafina series. This one begins with Serafina being the guardian of the Biltmore and she must protect the people and the house of Biltmore. She has moved upstairs to live among those she protects.
While she takes her job serious she starts to doubt her abilities with Brayden being away. She must protect the house but can she???

Returning to the elegant Biltmore Estate in the beautiful western North Carolina mountains, Robert Beatty has written another exciting page-turning book. We find Serafina out in her catamount (shape-shifting) form with her half-siblings. Even though there had not been any sinister activities around the Estate in a long time, Serafina had uneasy feelings because something "was always wrong at Biltmore". Being the "Guardian of Biltmore", she was always on alert.
That afternoon, the arrival of many
