Review: Seraphina

Seraphina
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So I picked up this book because it’s sequel came up as “Books like Red Queen” and I wanted to read the first book so the second one made sense. And yes you need to read the first to understand the second.

This book has a lot going for it, strong main character and strong female secondary characters. There is next to no girl hate in here and what is there is regulated to a few lines on one part of the book. The only drawback to this is the amount of violent woman death. Thankfully two are dead before the story starts, Seraphina’s mother and Lars’ mother. Another dies due to being poisoned. While the death of men remains low, one is stabbed, two are beheaded. One before the story.

So what about diversity...
