Prepare to be mystified once again as Serafina returns in Serafina and the Twisted Staff!

Have you ever felt that you might be different to those around you? That there’s something a little extra special about you? That’s exactly how Serafina, the 12-year-old star of this best-selling book series story feels in this thrilling tale. 

When we first met Serafina in the spine-tingling book Serafina and the Black Cloak, she had been secretly living in the echoey basement of the grand Biltmore Estate where her father worked. When children started dissapearing, Serafina teamed up with the estate owners” nephew, Braeden Vanderbilt, to search for answers in the deep, dark mysterious forest… 

Fast forward three months and Serafina is no longer having to stay hidden in the basement, and is struggling to adjust to her new life upstairs in Serafina and the Twisted Staff.


Every night, she visits her mysterious mother in the forest, eager to learn more about the pumas that live there. But Serafina is torn between two very different worlds – she”s too wild for the Biltmore”s beautifully dressed ladies and formal customs, and yet too human to fully join her friends in the forest.

When Serafina is attacked by vicious wolfhounds that seem to be under the control of a sinister figure in the woods, she realises that a new evil threatens to destroy everything she cares about. To defeat this powerful foe, she must search deep inside herself and embrace the destiny that”s always awaited her…

Will she be able to save the day? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
