Snakes aren’t the most intelligent creatures on the planet—domestic snakes especially. Anyone who has kept one as a pet can tell you; even eating—one of the most basic things a creature can do—can be challenging for them. It’s a miracle that they survive at all!

But what if they weren’t quite that stupid? What if they were as smart as people? They’re so drastically different from us physically… how would that difference in perspective manifest in their personalities? Furthermore, what if mice—the

A really fascinating read. I thoroughly enjoyed the setting and many of the characters - though I did confuse the names of some characters at times. I did see a few of the plot reveals coming before they happened; though the biggest revelation I had predicted wrong.
This was definitely an inventive story. Great immersion, and yet didn't need to go into long explanations about how the serpent's society works. Definitely recommended for someone who likes their fantasy a little different.

Disclaimer - I was given an advance copy of this book to review, but opinions are my own.

Sookahr is a young snake just coming into what would be the human equivalent to adulthood within his community within the burrow of Serpentia. He's tasked his career, which he's been assigned like every other, but something has always told him that he was meant for more.

Book 1 gets you acquainted with the main character, Sookahr, and his world of Serpentia. There will be snake-based terminology used, but not

I loved this book so much. Both the world and the characters drew me in right from the start and I couldn't put it down. This book is like nothing else I have ever read. I am a huge lover of snake so getting to read a book with snakes as the main characters is what first drew me in. But it was amazing characters themselves and intriguing plot that kept me glued to this story. This book really does have so much to offer a variety of different types of reader. With its amazing characters set in a ...more

Beautiful writing! A must read that will leave readers craving more! I’m not even a snake person but this story truly captivated me. I know nothing of snakes or their habitats, but I didn’t get lost while reading this story that centers around a whole systematic society of snakes. Instead, I was able to dive right into a truly interesting tale where snakes are destined into certain career paths all alongside their designated mouse companion. The main character seemed a little naive at times, but ...more

This book's creative and interesting world quickly pulled me in. Sookhar's point of view offers a great look at the caste system of the Burrow. He's not very high up, but he's high enough to give readers a look at how things are from various sides. He has big dreams and its easy to sympathize with his frustration but also to see his imperfections and prejudice as well.

The serpents of the book felt very much like snakes, not simply human characters with a scaly skin as I've seen happen in other

First of all, this demonstrated to me some top-of-the-line world-building. This society of psychic snakes and their rodent servants, with its rigid hierarchy (built even into the tunnels that compose the setting) and dogmatism, intellectually seems very far removed from everyday experience, but I had no trouble understanding and inhabiting it while reading this book.

And somehow, on top of all of this world-building sits an intricate, twisting plot, with conspiracies and betrayals and hidden agen

Fast paced. Great world building. An interesting take on snakes and the world they live in. Humans are always giving their pets human emotions, why not actually write a book with talking, thinking snakes. I myself dislike snakes, I don't care where they are at in the eco system. The story was well written and fast with plenty of action. ...more

Never before have I read a book about a main character being a snake. I gotta say, while reading it I felt like I was the snake. The detail in how he moved and felt is amazing.
