Many changes have taken place at Wood Rose Orphanage and Academy for Young Women while Carolina and Larry were on their honeymoon in Frascati, Italy, on the Granchelli farm. The newlyweds have been given a larger bungalow; Ms. Alcott, niece of the founder of Wood Rose, and Mrs. Ball, assistant to the headmaster, have moved into a bungalow together; and Jimmy Bob, caretaker and night watchman at Wood Rose has moved from his family home down the road a bit into a small bungalow on the orphanage property with his hound dog Tick, as well as his new cat and her litter of kittens.

Summer is coming to an end and the F.I.G.s will soon return to the universities to complete their special projects. They are starting to feel anxious, and the coping mechanisms they have used their entire lives are starting to work overtime. Dara’s thoughts turn to an unknown language, possibly from another world; Mackenzie focuses on the relationship of math to music; and Jennifer keeps hearing the note of B flat minor and is drawing dark swirls on her canvas board.

 My Review: 

Seraphim's Song was another pretty good read for young readers by Barbara Casey. It is, also, the fifth book from her The F I G Mysteries series, I have only read one other book from the series and I believe each book can be read as a stand alone. It seems like enough information is given to keep readers up to date and feel as though they are not lost or missing anything from the previous books. It was fun for me to catch up with the F I Gs (Females of Intellectual Genius) to see what they are up to in this new adventure. I actually felt as if I was part of the F I G myself. I wanted to keep reading to see how the mystery is solved. There were a few scenes that were a little slow but it quickly picked back up and kept me intrigued to see what was going to happen next. This little journey was fun, entertaining and engaging. 

I am giving Seraphim's Song four and a half stars. I still would love to read the first three books in the F I G Mysteries series to find out what happened previously, as well as, hope there will be a sixth addition to it. I believe teen readers who enjoy mystery and suspense will want to pick this one up. 

I received a paperback copy of Seraphim's Song from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.


  1. Amy, thank you so much for your wonderful review of The Seraphim's Song and your interest in The F.I.G. Mysteries. My best to you and your bloggers. ~Barbara
