Book Review: Seraphim Falling by Stephanie Bwabwa

Seraphim Falling is the first of the three Seraphim Resistance Prequels set in the world of Elledelle. I consumed this book in one sitting, and I can’t wait to read Angel in the Shadow Court!

Titaia Scarlethorn Angelfyre is getting ready for her coronation to become the Seraph of Flames, one of eight Saerels, the highest ranking angel selected to protect Elledelle and all of her angels. Escorted by her soulmate, or Soulu bonded mate, Cinder, and accompanied by her family, Titaia enters the fire palace. There is dancing and celebration, and rightfully so. But before Titaia can take her oath, the darkness of legends attacks. She is driven to make an unthinkable choice in order to save the angels of Elledelle – “Herein lies the tale of how the end began from the beginning.”

WOW! This plot-driven story is action-packed with vivid detail. I love the connection I felt to Titaia, Cinder, and her family, especially Zaza, in so few pages. I love the imagery depicted within the descriptions – I could picture everything as it was happening – I do hope the world of Elledelle becomes a Netflix series! I mean just look at the cover below!

There were a few moments, not suggestive situations, per se, but implied suggestive thoughts and feelings by characters. Because of this, I would suggest this book to older YA readers.

A story of sacrifice, loss, and hope, this is one that you will want to add to your TBR (to be read list). Overall, I rate Seraphim Falling 4.5/5 stars! I really am excited to read book two of the prequels, and I expect to continue to love the story as it continues to unfold. I highly recommend this novella to mature YA readers who enjoy unique fantasy worlds.
