5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Adventure Awaits the Daring Reader!
Serpentauria. The name alone grabs your attention and makes you think… What’s that? The answer isn’t easy and it isn’t simple but when reading Serpentauria: Ark of Extinction you feel like you are part of that world. 11 year old Sara Tsvetkov’s mission to help save and preserve the world’s endangered species and her families special role in protecting wildlife is a whirlwind adventure that readers of every age will enjoy.
The author does a fantastic job of interweaving fact with fiction and injecting just the right amount of mystical imagery and ideas to not only keep the reader guessing, but to keep the pages turning!
As the author of the Young Adult novel, Towering Pines, I love reading fiction that is geared for the younger reader but doesn’t treat them like children – Serpentauria does that and more. This book has all the pieces to be the next big thing in young adult popular culture, and it puts them together nicely.
