Item Description...
Seraphim, the mysterious six winged creatures that circle the Great Sapphire Throne of the Most High, have never left the heavenly realms- until now. Intrigued by an ancient mystery, Quon, a Seraph youngling, becomes the first of his race to leave their natural habitat, the Cloud of Fire in the Seventh Heaven. His fantastic journey to search out the answer he seeks will lead him to the earth, and into the first Seraph-Human relationship. While befriending two runaway orphaned children, a series of unexpected events entangles them all in a sinister plot of dark sorcery. Ultimately, solving the mystery of his quest not only reveals a shocking revelation, it will involve the unsuspecting Seraph in a cosmic battle against evil, to save the city, and his friends.

The Seraphim Diaries  Aug 27, 2007
The challenge of a first book in a series is how to hook readers and provide the foundation for what is to come in this and future books. Though her story gains momentum later, L. Ellen Gardner only succeeds moderately with these two tasks at the beginning of her tale. I would have started with the twins, Amanda and Charlie, sneaking out of the orphanage. Instead the author revels in the hierarchy of The Great Three-in-One to explain why a lovably loopy, dragon-like angel, Quon, is allowed travel to earth in order to understand "the mystery of the redeemed." The plot needs to kick in first before we care about this rather elaborate explanation of its context.
I grew up on C.S. Lewis, so the idea of dressing the mystery of Christianity in child-story form seems natural enough, but it's only half way through this book that the characters (both Quon and the children) experience need of redemption in a way a young reader might identify with. And even then it involves symbols of good and evil--blinding light and dark shadows, a majestic voice versus a snake like monsters--that will seem a bit shopworn, even to fourth graders. The author uses convincing dialogue, gives affectionate names to animals (such as "hollywobble" and "jiggywilbur") and is so engrossed with the narrative she is weaving that we genuinely want to believe it is real. There's also a very sweet ending. I have to add one thing that I have never said in any other review: Over the time I was reading this book I had very pleasant dreams at night.

In this land of iridescent arches of pink pearl inlaid with solid gold calligraphy or the unfriendly places of the city where children should never go (where men "in old torn clothing dug through the stinking garbage dumpsters looking for treasures--or a place to sleep.") the amateurish illustrations that mark each chapter of the book are negligible. However, the visit to a Black church and Amanda's need to "belong" convey unexpected psychological depth. I found this segment moving. The Reverend Joseph's sermon, which follows that chapter, at first seems overly preachy but proves to be excellent foreshadowing of the climactic battle that ends the book. And Quon promises to return.

In terms of characters, story and theme there are plenty of elements to build on here. I am hopeful future books in this series, free of the burdens borne by this one, will do just that. I too believe in redemption.
