Publisher's Summary

Decades ago, the High King of Sundolia waged a war that vanquished the Serpent clan and drove them out of the empire, reducing them to nothing more than legends spoken of in occasional frightened whispers. But they did not leave peacefully. Their parting gift included curses that now rest within the empire's soil, beneath the shade of its jungles, treading through the waves of its seas. Growing more and more dormant as the years pass under the rule of that increasingly tyrannical high king. 

Until Alaya - a young woman with a hidden Serpent mark who shouldn't exist - accidentally wakes one of them up. Then another. And suddenly she finds herself exiled from her adopted village and left with no choice but to seek the truth about her lost clan and the so-called curses they left behind. About her true home. About a power, stolen from the Serpent goddess herself, that is supposedly resting in that home. It is the sort of power that could help her overthrow a king, expose the lies he's told, and put a stop to his wars. 

The crown prince of Sundolia claims he wants to put a stop to those wars with her. That he only wants to help her find that power so he can undo the horrors his father has created. All they have to do is find a way to trust each other.

Saved by the Last Chapter

This was a SLOW story. I took a months long break just because I completely lost interest due to the pace. It starts off alright but then you just have to slog through the middle. All of the elements of intrigue are there but it some how lacks the urgency and tension required to hold a person's attention. I'm still a bit confused as to how/what her powers are but admittedly I spaced out quite a bit listening to this. After finally getting through to the end there's a bit of a cliffhanger and I'm far more tempted to move on to the next book than I would have thought.

Absolutely breathtaking

Totally loved this book. The world building was well done with the reader being transported to a brand new place full of Rooks, Doves, serpents and clan less people’s. The Empire is being led by a tyrant how can a group of four change there world for the better. Highly recommended.
