This story kept me reading into the small hours of the morning. Gripping story, with a good development of characters, I grew fond of Raven, the female protector who is as much a mother as she is a warrior.
I felt C. N. Lesley expressed the Drakkens’ pain well with the telling of Connor’s mishap, Cooper’s struggles to become a man and in Rosella’s coming of age learning compassion in a harsh and horrible manner.
Their world is not an easy one with conflict waiting around every bend. Serpent of the Shangrove is a story which will also reflect today’s times and bring into our world, food for thought. After all, most people will find preferable to learning any lesson we encounter along the way in a more tasteful manner—prevention being the ounce we can take. Well done!
