I instantly gravitated toward the character of Evan, who is likable and jumped to life from the written page. When he is suddenly taken 500 years back into ancient ages, he must try to understand why and decide how to help on this unusual quest that he has been assigned. The friends he makes along the way are well-formed so they are anything but boring and do enhance the storyline as well as telling us more about Evan through their conversations with him. When Zeus came into the story I was alre ...more

This book introduces you to Evan Chronis, architect. He has strange and suffocating dreams - way too realistic for comfort. And how does he get his life back?

With Search for the Golden Serpent, Luciana Cavallaro has created a well-crafted suspense story that takes a modern architect into the past and/or mythology - against his will. It is a very compelling read that draws you close to Evan and his quest. Luciana Cavallaro introduces the characters with care, integrating them in the plot, you wan

In Luciana Cavallaro's Search for the Golden Serpent (Mythos Publications 2015), Evan Chronis (aka Evandros by the Greeks), a world-class architect, has built his business on a foundation of always finishing projects on time and on budget. When he is contacted by Zeus to save Mount Olympos (no spelling error), he thinks someone is playing games with him. When he passes out and wakes up almost twenty-five hundred years in the past, a time when the Olympian gods ruled, he is sure he's being fooled ...more

[Full disclosure: I was contacted by the author and provided with an ebook in exchange for an honest review.]

I’ve read quite a few of Luciana Cavallaro’s previous works so I was pretty excited to read Search for the Golden Serpent. The only problem was that she had previously only published short stories and I was a little worried about how she would transition into longer works like this one. After all, a 354 page novel is not the same as a 40 page short story. Still, I was more than ready to g

Caveat, the author very kindly sent me a free advance copy of her book for me to review. I loved it so much I have since purchased my own copy to support the author and I'll probably also buy the printed version when it hit stores and read that as well because I have found there is a vast difference between electronic and paper reading.

Search for the Golden Serpent is an historical, mythological, fantasy quest on an epic scale.

The plot is completely plausible. Fantasy and

I’ve read “Accursed Women” by Ms. Cavallaro, and absolutely loved her fresh, lovely writing style, so I wouldn’t miss a chance to read this one. But I could never imagine what a ride the author would take me on this time!
First of all, I loved the whole time-travel aspect, it helps the readers easily connect with the protagonist, Evan, who gets thrown back in time and is given a dangerous task by ancient Greek gods themselves. The character development is magnificent, from the point of Evan thin

I just barely got settled onto my reading chaise for the evening & started reading a few pages of Luciana's first chapter when I perked up instead of relaxing further, because Luciana definitely doesn't skimp on historical or visual details wherever she can input them to further aid the reader's immersion into her creative body of work.

You get to know each & every character on a personal level, yet not enough to out-guess them, or know their every thoughts. There's still enough wonder &a
