"For anyone who loved the Lightning Thief books, or Lost Hero by Riordan" Roby ~ Kindle Book Lending Club
You won't be able to put this one down.This is a book so good that even though I'm 17, me and many friends still love reading it. It is still age appropriate for younger readers yet still hooks in older readers. BUY IT!"You will NOT be disappointed!" Nick Logan ~ Kindle Book Lending Club
I just got done reading the book! Awesome plot and a few surprises in it! The characters are fantastic! Sara is a major player in this book, but, there are others that are just as important as her, or, even more important. I cannot wait until movie is released!"Suspenseful and amazing!" KHead ~ Kindle Book Lending Club This series is suspenseful and amazing! It was good and well written, in my opinion. The only problem is that you have to wait another year to watch the movie and with Shein's creative mind it is heart wrenching to stand the wait. I thoroughly recommend this to young readers
"...an entertaining and engaging story..." -Neil Buchanan, Starburst Magazine
There's an innocence to Serpentauria that proves hard to resist. Serpentauria serves as an excellent gateway for children into the problems facing nature and also manages to remain a fine adventure to boot."As entertaining and fast-paced as this book is, there's also a strong underlying message" Sean Dodds - Archaic Arts Magazine)
A blend of South American mythology and present-day science fiction... it brings to light many of our important societal and ecological issues in the world today. ...Highly entertaining.
From the Author
I want to stress this is a work of fiction and we have played with source myths and legends to fold them into a story that while we hope is entertaining--also contains something we believe strongly in and hope will resonate with all who read this book. We need to cherish and protect our world's living treasures--animals and plant life. We have lost so many and so much through ignorance (which is understandable, to a degree) and greed (which is unconscionable). We must do better and eliminate both.

The illustrations in this book, by William Watts of Windward Design, are actual prototype planning drawings for the construction of a real place and facilities. Since these are actual large-scale drawings readers are not going to be able to read the small print and some of the legends on some of the pictures. We invite you to go to either the ArkWatch or Adducent websites (to see larger color versions of these drawings.
Our plan is to build a real Serpentauria; a special place where best practices are used to protect animals and educate people about conservancy and the study of nature. Answers to some of our most challenging health issues can be found in nature. Studies and research that largely go unknown to most of the world are making tremendous strides in this--we just need to do more.
The ArkWatch Academy mission you'll read about at the end of this book is real. It is something we believe in and will work to manifest and promote to the world. There is magic in all of us: humans, animals and plants. We just need to believe and nurture it for all to share in the wonders our world contains.
Certain ideas presented here about Paleo-DNA, the genetic material of extinct animals, were first articulated by Charles Pellegrino, based on the research from of George O. Poinar Jr. and Roberta Hess, who formed the Extinct DNA Study Group in Berkeley, California.
