Summary

From the critically acclaimed and bestselling author of Seraphina comes a piercing new fantasy adventure that champions our resilience and humility.

MIND OF THE WORLD,

OPEN YOUR EYES.

At the bottom of the world lies a Serpent, the last of its kind.

Finding the Serpent will change lives.

Tess is a girl on a mission to save a friend.

Spira is a dragon seeking a new identity.

Marga is an explorer staking her claim on a man’s world.

Jacomo is a priest searching for his soul.

There are those who would give their lives to keep it hidden.

And those who would destroy it.

But the only people who will truly find the Serpent are those who have awakened to the world around them—with eyes open to the wondrous, the terrible, and the just.

Critic reviews

"Wonderful, instantly immersive and deeply affecting."—The New York Times

“Hartman deftly reflects our own world’s worries in this adventurous fantasy, but always with an eye toward hope and healing…. This is a much-needed book.”—Booklist, starred review

“Hartman’s inclusive world grapples with questions of sovereignty and colonization, religion, and gender in ways that both reflect and comment on our own world…. A compelling duology closer."—Kirkus Reviews

Wonderful

Just wonderful. I didn’t want this sequel to Tess of the Road to end. The writing is delightful and I thought the narration was spot on.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
