This world that Atwater-Rhodes has created is wonderful but the books are just too short and too fast-paced! On the other hand, there is barely any plot drag that current YA fantasies seem to have. Despite the Keisha'ra series being an MG - YA fantasy, the author's really good with her romance. I remember Hawksong being so sensual even though there wasn't anything extra in it - just good word choice. Not so much here. I kinda wish she would slow down a bit, a fantasy needs that, an ...more
I love how much you learn in this novel. In Hawksong, it was about the war, in Snakecharm, it's about the peacetime. And because it's ...more

Danica and Zane have achieved a lot in their aim of peace between the avains and serpiente. However, when Danica becomes pregnant, will the peace last long? Also, a falcon named Syfka comes and that causes more problems, so is the falcon just there to find their missing falcon? Or, is she there just to stir up trouble amongst their people?
Another supernatural book, however, this time it is about shapeshifters, again. Yay. \o/
As a second book o ...more
One thing I should add when it comes to Snakecharm is how well the author dealt with how the "inter-species" (in a way) marriage worked and the difficulties that came from raising a child of two cultures. Most books tend to sweep these conflicts under the Happy Ever After rug, it's always a nice treat when an author does not shy from these issues. Granted, it's fantasy, but these are also issues preval ...more
ZANE COBRIANA, COBRA shapeshifter, thanks the gods every day for Danica, his hawk pair bond, and the peace their union has brought to the avian and serpiente. Soon, Danica will have a child to carry on their royal line. But what should be a happy time is riddled with doubt.
Syfka, an ancient falcon, has arrived from Ahnmik claiming that one of her people is hidden in their midst. The falcons are more powerful than the avians and serpiente combined, and Syfka shows nothing but contempt for Zane
In Snakecharm, Zane takes the driver's wheel and guides us into the newlywed's life with his pair bond Danica. Bot ...more
Now, this issue may stem from the change in POV in the second book, as there's a possibility that Danica felt or thought about this and just didn't discuss it with Zane, but there's a huge what if that I think she should be pretty mad about that does ...more
First in the first book in this series the narations were mainly coming from Danica. I wish it could've stayed that way. In this book we are hearing Zane's voice and opions and frankly they all sound a lot like Danica ...more
Snakecharm is about Zane and Danica, who are shapeshifters. Zane is the protagonist, and is going to be the father of Danica’s unborn child, but many things keep happening. One thing is that there is a hidden falcon that has been exiled, among the ranks of the royal flight and Syfkla, an ancient falcon, has come for the hidden one. Another thing is that Zane and Danica need to figure out how to raise their child. It was the first chapte ...more
This story is told from Zane’s POV instead of Danica’s and I remember feeling excited when I first read this several years ago since Zane was one of my fa ...more
