Seraphina’s Vengeance is the third book in the Seraphina series by Sheena Hutchinson. The author has really upped the ante with this instalment. It is full of action and excitement. The story is a fast paced and enthralling. I do recommend reading the first two books before starting this one, as this isn’t a standalone, there is a bridging story that continues with each new instalment. You will need all the information from those books in order to follow and enjoy this story to the fullest extent.
As we discovered so far, Seraphina (Sera) has been thrust into a world of Angels and Demons, where good vs evil- she has made some startling discoveries, not only about herself and all that she is capable of- but also of the ‘world’. We learn all this along with her- how she has come to this point, why she is the way she is- and learning all about her powers, and trying to come to terms with everything in the process.
A year has passed since Sera’s transformation, and a year since the clash with the demons. It may seem quiet, all too quiet, but Sera has a feeling that is all about to change. She is proven right, when her best friend goes missing. Amanda’s Disappearance wreaks havoc with Sera’s feelings. All she can think about is vengeance. Hate and anger consume her- and darkness begins to take hold. This puts a strain on her relationship with Nick, as she pushes him away. But along the way she loses herself, decisions are made, and leads to a major error in judgement. What will happen? Will she come to her senses? Can she ‘undo’ the damage caused?
I really loved how much Sera (and Nate) developed as characters, not just in this book, but through the series. The world building and paranormal/fantasy elements in the story were masterful. This is definitely my favourite of the series, so far.
I am looking forward to the next story, where I think Sera is set to face the ultimate test- “Seraphina’s Revolution” (Book #4) coming soon! Can’t wait!
Thank you, Ms. Hutchinson!
