Skye Callahan-Blaire’s World: Serafina

Blaire’s World is a shared world set of 7 books. They are all based in the world that Anita Gray created with her book Blaire, but they can all be read as a standalone. There may be some mild spoilers to Blaire or Blaire 2, but you don’t have to have read those books in order to read the Blaire’s World books. They don’t have to read in any particular order. However, I highly recommend reading the Blaire books, just because I think that they are great books. Six of the books are coming out on 2/26, but Demetrius will be coming out later in the year, for personal reasons.

Serafina is Skye Callahan’s offering to this universe, and I was very impressed with the character.

So, here’s how it works. Sera has been trained by Jorge to be his little spy. His training hasn’t been nice. In fact, I think that Sera and Blaire could commiserate a lot, they have a lot in common. She “failed” in her latest mission. Of course, things that were totally beyond her control happened, but when your boss is a total lunatic like Jorge, then he has his own version of failure, and apparently, her actions counted. Fucker.

Then, Jorge sends her to Canada for a job, but doesn’t tell her what she’s supposed to do. All she knows is that she gets an outfit to wear and is told to be ready to leave in 15 minutes. She hits a party, and everything goes wonky.

This story is all told from Sera’s POV, which is different to the books I’ve read so far, since they have been told from both POVs. I think that it works well for this one because we really need to be in her head. I think adding Galeno’s POV into the book when Sera is already dealing with all the stuff that she is dealing with would have muddled it up. I also think that it might have ruined the flow of the story because I think that we needed to discover Galeno the way that Sera did. It was really organic and natural that way.

I wasn’t always sure of what to make of Galeno, but that’s because Sera didn’t, and that was a really interesting way to meet the MMC of the book.

OK, I had to have the bathtub, because there was a really hot scene in the bathtub, so there you go.

Alright, that’s all I have to say today. Go check it out! Happy reading!
