*Relationships are the centerpiece.
*The characters evolve in the course of the story in relation to each other and the plot. By the end of the novel I understood the changes. Rain and Coal mature from dependent slaves whose obedience or rebelliousness makes them appendages of their owners to thoughtful young nobles who take responsibility for the consequences of their decisions. Domrey's life story unwinds. He is introduced as a sop and dandy. Slowly his childhood and youth are revealed in the context of his interaction with Rain and Coal, fleshing out his motives and deepening his soul, ultimately uncovering his potential.
*Fantasy elements support development of the tight plot. Any magical prop that is introduced is integral to the story line. I have grown tired of mundane adventures that have a few magic tricks added to sell them in the fantasy aisle. In Seranfyll, even the Fantasia tired animated mop and bucket are participants in the story, more than just supernatural champions in the battles; they actually contribute to development of the individuals into a family.
*Look at my other reviews and see. If I say five, I mean five.

When I first started reading this book, I felt like I was in the world of Robin Hobb. Slaves, medieval landscapes, and all that jazz. I also immediately felt how real of a character Rain was. Her early tribulations in the book reminded me of A Series of Unfortunate Events--the poor girl just couldn't get a break.

As soon as Domrey Seranfyll was introduced, I was hooked with some serious barbs. When the enchanted nature of his house started coming into play, I pictured Beauty and the Beast and the barbs dug even deeper. Seranfyll and Daley's explanation of the enchantment and magic of her world were amazing. I first thought that this book was more of an epic fantasy but Daley makes it so believable that I think it is more like an urban fantasy--just, one that takes place around the time of the Renaissance (based on the 'newness' of the telescope).

Daley does an amazing job of building her characters. Rain, Coal, and Domrey are all very real and very engaging. Every extra wrinkle we learn about Domrey makes you love him even more, even with his eccentricities and Peter Pan complex (I want his bedroom!). The maturation of Coal was a wonderful story and at times I wish the book was told from his perspective, since he was such a strong secondary character and could have easily been a main.

There were definitely moments in the book where I felt I was drifting a little bit, but this is, by no means, the author's fault. When Rain was the primary focus without Coal or Domrey, I felt Daley was speaking more to a girl audience instead of me (male). When Domrey took the two of them to visit Valiance's homeland, I thought I was being inserted into My Little Pony for a moment. Fortunately, Daley does not dawdle long in girl-land and keeps the story moving.

Wow, I really loved this book. I was so drawn into the story, from the very beginning, I could not put it down. Each character was unique and had their own definite voice. I felt like I could take a walk (ok, a long walk) and go into this world and interact with the characters. I even teared up a little.

The author added an "author's note" at the end, something I may or may not read, but in this case it was a powerful message that really underscored the story. I would suggest this book to anyone but I think it would resonate especially well with early teens (9-14) girls as the story is told from a 13 yr old girls view. This is a story about freedom and would be great for sparking conversations with your kids.

(A few minor editing errors but so few it did not detract from the story)

Great Read!

ETA: this story has a real sense of Hope woven in and it has stayed with me so I felt I must mention it.

ETA: 9/1/11 my 11 yr old daughter read this book and she also loved it. It was great, the whole time she was reading she would come and tell me about what was going on and which characters she liked and we talked about different aspects of the book. We are both hoping for another book in this world.

I just finished reading the book Seranfyll by Christina Daley and let me tell you...I'm bummed. I'm bummed because now that I have finished the book I feel like I have nothing else desirable to read. The further I got into the book the more I didn't want to put it down. I have a habit of reading multiple books simultaneously but time and again when I had time to read I chose Seranfyll over my other options. Here is what I liked about the book. I liked the humorous eccentricity of Lord Domrey Seranfyll, the innate honor of Coal, and the unveiling of Rain's character throughout the book. Lord Domrey Seranfyll's peculiarity is comical and feeds my curious appetite to find out what made him that way. It was a pleasure to read about Coal, a man's man and a young man of character. What is more pleasurable than to see young men demonstrate acts of honor which is not common in today's media? I simply enjoyed following Rain's journey never quiet able to predict what she would choose or what would happen. I liked how the author includes a note encouraging readers to do what they can to put an end to acts of injustice that happen all over the world. She doesn't tell you what to do but asks you to do something. Plus the book is only $0.99! For these reasons I recommend you buy the book Seranfyll. It really is a great read.
