[I was generously provided a free copy by the author in exchange for an honest review]

I really liked the way the plot was woven. And the reality of first-love experiences and second chances. But the thing is, I thought the protagonist was a little childish, and her tenor wasn't that of a typical 20 year old girl- woman. She was a little overreacting at times, which was unpleasant. But of course, I can't judge the whole story depending on that one aspect.

I'm pretty sure I detected a noticeable ch

After reading Sapphire I was waiting rather impatiently for a sequel. I knew that there had to be a something more to these characters lives, especially Aria's. This book was everything that I waited for and more! It kept me on my toes with action, excitement, and of course a very nice touch of romance. I honestly could not put it down, and even missed a couple meals without any realization of the time. I was sucked into Asteria and the mystical oceans with no hesitation, and am so excited to go ...more

3.5/5.0

Aria is an astounding character. She has charisma, daring, and creativeness in tight situations.

General rating: ★★★★ (4 stars)
Diversity rating: ★☆ (1.5 stars; POC (not 100% sure but I thought Roy was black), semi non-western world, this book is really hard to rate)

When I get a request to review from an author, I am always very hesitant because sometimes you get really strange review requests in your inbox. However, with this book, I just had to say yes because it sounded great!
First of all, you do not need to read the first book in order to read this book! The first book follows the story

I received this book from the author Sarah Fay Olson for an honest review.

After a few chapters in i messaged Sarah as i was already in love with the story.

This is the second book in the series and I haven't read book one but that doesn't matter. The story flows so well that you don't feel like your missing out on book one. Though i will now read it.

Princess Aria is due to marry Lord Thomas in a few months. Excitement for a royal wedding is being celebrated throughout the Kingdom until Aria walks

A strangely addictive YA fantasy read.

I haven't read the first in the trilogy. And when I began reading it, I didn't even know it was a book two. I could tell there was some past stuff going on with Aria's parents, but I thought it was maybe another book series. For once, not reading book one was not a deal breaker for me, and I really enjoyed Serpent!

At first it was a little slow - finding Thomas doing some bad things with someone who isn't Aria (not a spoiler, since it happens in first 10%),

I sped through Serpent in a few days, so most people probably will too. I tend to have a short attention span with books, but not with this one. It was a little slower in the beginning, but I found the extra background helpful. It's been awhile since I read the first book. I think you could read this book without reading Sapphire first and not be confused. I'm going to not give anything away, but I kept wanting to yell at Aria concerning some of her decisions. I will admit she is young, and this ...more

This book followed the story of royalty, but what I loved that the author added elements of adventure, some defiance, and love of family and special ones. Though it was partially predictable, I still throughly enjoyed it, as I constantly wanted to read it in any spare moment. I have not read the first book in the series, but it was mainly unrelated. I extremely recommend this book to anyone to loves books that focus on royalty, adventure, and romance. Great job Sarah Olson!!! I look forward to r ...more
