"Never go into the deep parts of the forest, for there are many dangers there, and they will ensnare your soul." Serafina has never had a reason to disobey her pa and venture beyond the grounds of the Biltmore estate.There's plenty to explore in her grand home, although she must take care to never be seen. None of the rich folk upstairs know that Serafina exists; she and her pa, the estate's maintenance man, have secretly lived in the basement for as long as Serafina can remember. But when children at the estate start disappearing, only Serafina knows who the culprit is:a terrifying man in a black cloak who stalks Biltmore's corridors at night. Following her own harrowing escape, Serafina risks everything by joining forces with Braeden Vanderbilt, the young nephew of the Biltmore's owners. Braeden and Serafina must uncover the Man in the Black Cloak's true identity…before all of the children vanish one by one. Serafina's hunt leads her into the very forest that she has been taught to fear. There she discovers a forgotten legacy of magic, one that is bound to her own identity. In order to save the children of Biltmore, Serafina must seek the answers that will unlock the puzzle of her past.

His attention to detail and descriptive language transport the reader to the Winter Garden, the woods, and the ancient grounds around Biltmore. Whether it is prowling the basement with Serafina, exploring the stables with Braeden, or discovering the elegance of the house Mrs. Vanderbilt, each and every room comes to life.
This is a must read for children, teenagers, and adults like! Many great life lessons sprinkled throughout! A true story of courage, hope, friendship (in many forms), and determination, Serafina and the Black Cloak is well on its way to becoming a timeless classic.
