Product description

Product Description

High fantasy and romance mix with adventure and magic in the first of Lara Morgan’s Twins of Saranthium series.

For two thousand years, the serpents of Salmut and their riders have kept the people of Saranthium safe — but the pact between human and serpent is failing. Rogue serpents are attacking villages, and rumours abound that the banished god of the serpents, Azoth, has returned to resurrect his empire of slavery.

Orphan, thief and survivor Shaan works in the serpent yards of Salmut and wakes from dreams of blood and death. The surprising discovery that she can speak with Nuathin, the oldest serpent of the yards, brings her to the attention of sept leader, Balkis. Handsome, arrogant and seductive, Balkis is also a man with powerful and dangerous alliances and Shaan becomes the target of the city’s most feared arms men: The Faithful.

Meanwhile in the deserts, a young man named Tallis defends his clan against rogue serpents, driving them off with supernatural force. When he faces becoming an outcast because of his power, the truth of his birth is revealed and he embarks on a journey to understand the strength locked within his mind.

Drawn together, Shaan and Tallis become ensnared in the resurrection of an ancient conflict, but on whose side will they stand — that of the serpents or the people?

Flying dragons, a city by the sea, a heroine whose troubled dreams are just the start of things to come...how could I resist reading this one?

Shaan is easy to sympathise with and I quickly became caught up in her tale. The men in her life all have their own secrets as they want something different from or for her - but none seems capable of keeping her out of trouble. Yet she doesn't seek trouble out - more often than not, it finds her.

Morgan's fantasy style is more about the characters than detailed description of their world, yet she left me with clear impressions of every different place her characters visited - beautifully done.

I really enjoyed this story - but I felt the ending left too much up in the air (pardon the pun). I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of the series - I only wish I'd found it earlier.
