Michele Hauf captures your attention with vivid, powerful, sexy characters. If you purchased this book without a cover you should be aware that this book is stolen property. It was reported as "unsold and destroyed" to the publisher, and neither the author nor the publisher has received any payment for this "stripped book.

I read this in past,and was very happy to find it and order it again.
I have slogged through 397 pages of this miserable brick and haven't yet found a believable bit of plot.

Main character Seraphim is cardboard, too good to be true, too perfect to be real, and none of the challenges she faces in the book are believable in the least. She conquers 4 demons easily, two without even realizing they are demons, and the one who inflicts damage to her, she is easily healed and on to the next thing in a page or two. No suspense whatsoever. You never think she's not going to succeed on her quest, but you never really care, either. There's no depth here, no crisis of faith, no nothing. Occasionally the author throws in some words about "choosing faith over revenge" but other than a bit of throw-away dialogue, you don't get the impression that any of that is actually happening inside Seraphim's heart. Likewise her "struggle" between her maidenly side and her warrior side as to whether or not she's going to do the deed with the guy later on. There's a few words, a few trite misunderstandings, but all is much much too easily overcome, swept aside and True Love seems to win the day.

Her Squire is a sort of stereotypical Ichabod Crane cartoon coward with gangly knees. He has a shady past but is now completely good and trustworthy. Um, how about not....it would have been interesting if his cowardice or his past misdeeds & bad habits caused any problems for the group, but they never do. He stands with them against various horrors, and is a solid ally they can count on. He's a little weak, a little lazy, a little cowardly, but after a few bits of dialogue about how weak and cowardly he is, he proves strong and brave when push comes to shove. How dreadfully dull.

The love interest, Dominick whatsisname, is incredibly boring. 300 something pages in, I have no idea what he even looks like and I don't care. Purple eyes and some rocks sewn on his cloak (still no idea why they're there..I guess I'll find out eventually.) Apparently he rides a de horned unicorn, but the story hasn't come right out and said that yet. He's perfect in every way, there's nothing unlovable or nasty about him, even though the story alludes to him having been a mercenary...but for all that, he's just a wonderful guy who loves Sera right away and stands by her through thick and thin. Purple eyed boy scout. Those rocks on his cloak are probably enchanted merit badges. jeez.

I wish I was not the type of person who finishes a book once I've started it...I feel more battered and hopeless as I trudge through this literary wasteland than these people ought to, after fighting and killing 4 demons.
The year is 1433. Seraphim d'Ange is a young woman riding through France on a quest for revenge. The de Morte brothers attacked the d'Ange castle, killing Seraphim's family. Seraphim was raped, wounded, and left for dead. Now she is disguised as "the Black Knight" and killing off the de Morte brothers one by one. Two down, three to go.

All of this takes place before _Seraphim_ begins. Sera is now preparing to eradicate the third brother. She and her squire, Baldwin, meet a stranger on their journey, who joins them when it turns out that he has similar aims. The stranger is Dominique St. Juste, a handsome man with faery blood. Sparks fly.

Michele Hauf attempts an elevated, old-fashioned style, but breaks that tone with anachronisms: using "teen" to describe Baldwin, for example, and having people say "Really?" or "So?" The names don't help either. Not only are the names unsubtly symbolic, but they don't fit the place and time -- this is supposed to be set in the real, historical France, where it's unlikely that anyone was named Seraphim or Gossamer.

It may sound silly to quibble about anachronistic names when there are faeries and demons running around. When I read historical fantasy, though, I like to suspend disbelief and imagine that it really could have happened this way, but that the magical parts were "lost to history." It doesn't work when I can't believe the "realistic" aspects of the story.

I got about 100 pages into _Seraphim_; thus far there has been little plot development except for the unfolding of the backstory. Instead the book is focused on bickering and bantering among Sera, Baldwin, and Dominique, which is made confusing by head-hopping and (at times) too few dialogue tags. I finally gave up when Dominique started brooding about an anti-faery comment Seraphim made -- a comment she made to Baldwin when Dominique was not present. If a book is engaging in other ways, I can overlook errors like that, but in this case it was the last straw.
