“A strangely addictive YA fantasy read. I really enjoyed Serpent! …Once the journey got going, I was hooked. I’m a huge fan of fantasy, and traveling in fantasy always seems to be the most written about. This, at least, wasn’t a boring journey. We meet Roy, who I knew from the start was hiding something. I was a fan of him, although I wasn’t ever sure if I could really trust him. Aria, for someone who so recently had her heart broken (in a two-year long courtship!), seems to overcome her sadness quite quick.
The end picks up the plot, and truths come to light. I enjoyed the dual PoVs, and thought they each had a strong internal and distinct voice. I liked how James cared for Aria even though she wasn’t his own by blood. . . . I did enjoy this enough that I marked the first to read, and I’ll be keeping an eye out for the third. The author has a firm voice when writing.” —Candace Wondrak
