i could not be more thrilled that Serpentine has been
chosen as a Junior Library Guild Fall Selection!! in addition,
we received a glowing Kirkus review:
“The economical narrative conjures an entire world, drenched in color and texture and scent, rich in evocative mythology and heady action, and filled with vivid characters. Skybright makes a refreshing heroine, both fiercely loyal and eminently practical, ready to exploit her supernatural powers while insisting on her inherent humanity.”—Kirkus Reviews
and a *starred* review from School Library Journal!!
“This coming-of-age story takes readers on a fantastical journey through friendship and Chinese mythology. YA fans will love Pon’s storytelling ability and the immersion into a world filled with love, danger, and fantasy. VERDICT Readers will be begging for a sequel to find out what happens to these intriguing characters.”—Jessica Strefling, US Court of Appeals, Federal Circuit Library
i’m doing a great pre-order campaign through my
favorite local indie book store, Mysterious Galaxy! if you
order Serpentine now through them, you can get a signed
and personalized copy ready to ship around the 9/8 release date.
in addition, you can choose one of my brush art cards as a gift
with each copy purchased! (while supplies last.)
in this way, i can share my art with my readers (which i LOVE
to do) while supporting my favorite bookstore at the same time!
so if you’re interested in buying Serpentine, please consider ordering
through the link above! thank you!!
