Dina's family set family set off in desperate flight, trying to escape Sezuan's snare. But soon, with nowhere else to turn, Dina must learn to see through her father's deceit and use her own gift against him.

Reviews for The Serpent Gift (#3 Shamer Chronicles)

The series as a whole is in good standing alongside Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy and C. S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia. -- Booklist, starred review The term 'page-turner' is often used, but not always justified. It is deserved here, tenfold. I really, really couldn't put the book down. -- School Librarian The most original new fiction of this kind ... thrilling and thoughtful. -- The Times Spiced with likable characters and an intriguing new magical ability - eagerly awaiting volume two. --Kirkus This novel stands on its own and offers a satisfying conclusion even as it provides an intriguing setting and mythology for future adventures. -- Publishers Weekly An absorbing and fast-paced fantasy/mystery bursting with action and intrigue. The only question is: when will the next one come out? -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
