Title- Wander Dust

Series- Seraphina Parrish Trilogy # 1

By- Michelle Warren

Publication Date- November 30, 2013

Genre- YA/Fantasy/Time Travel/Romance



Ever since her sixteenth birthday, strange things keep happening to Seraphina Parrish. Unexplainable premonitions catapult her to faraway cities. A street gang wants to kill her, and a beautiful, mysterious boy stalks her.

But when Sera moves to Chicago, and her aunt reveals their family connection to a centuries old, secret society, she’s immediately thrust into an unbelievable fantasy world, leading her on a quest to unravel the mysteries that plague her. In the end, their meanings crash into an epic struggle of loyalty and betrayal, and she’ll be forced to choose between the boy who has stolen her heart and the thing she desires most.

Wander Dust is the breathtaking fantasy that will catapult you through a story of time, adventure, and love.




First, I want to commend Ms. Warren on the great visuals that were available to use in this post. Absolutely amazing.

Okay, my review. While I’m not a fan of the tense in which Wander Dust is written, I was completely blown away by the story and the strong prose. After one book, I am a fan. Michelle Warren has a great gift for story telling. Add to that, her amazing covers and the drawings you see in this post (I don’t know if she drew them or not, but I don’t care. She gets extra points for them), and I’m absolutely hooked. Wander Dust is an amazing story of time travel, but it doesn’t tell it’s story through the time travel. That is to say, it doesn’t get hung up on making the travel a literary device. It’s part of the story. And I like that. I like it a lot.

For being YA, it didn’t feel like YA. I love that. It’s so refreshing not to find teenagers acting like teenagers.

I try not to mention grammatical errors unless they are really really prevalent. In this case, if there were any, I missed them because I was sooo into the story! I read this book in a day. I couldn’t get away from it! I just wanted to keep going and I cannot WAIT to get into book two of this series.

Ms. Warren, you are on my list. =)
