Fantastic Fantasy!!!!

Serpents Rising (Eve of Redemption, #3)Serpents Rising by Joe Jackson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again, Joe Jackson does not disappoint. The Eve of Redemption series has been amazing and his third installment is my favorite so far. Serpents Rising is filled with political and religious intrigue, familial challenges and strains, and some amazing revelations that I did not see coming. Karian Vanador continues to be an amazing heroine, but especially in this book as she has to step into new roles and face challenges she never has before, while the truths she has known throughout her long lives are turned upside down on her. Her growth throughout the story was both touching and realistic. Jackson writes a wonderful cast of characters and you can’t help but feel- love, hatred, respect, curiosity- for each new one he introduces, any yet he still manages to build and develop his older characters too. I really enjoyed having the characters from the first book play a larger role in Serpents Rising. The world building in Eve of Redemption is masterful, the depth and detail is beautiful and intricate and yet as a reader you don’t get lost in it. And supporting it all is a fascinating story line. I could not put this book down. I cannot wait for the next one!!!!
