Serpent's Storm is the climax in Callie's character arc. At the beginning of Death's Daughter (the very first Calliope Reaper Jones novel), Callie could easily be classified fallible, avoidant, confused and overall...a scared chicken that would run away at anything abnormal. She hid in her apartment for hours when she saw a "beasty" for the first time in the lobby of her apartment building. Through the span of the books, Callie's personality has shifted. She has learned to think for herself, take destiny by the bullhorns and make her own path. Now in Serpent's Storm, the same girl that cowered in the face of mild danger stands up and unites people of all different shapes, sizes, breeds and beliefs in order to over take hell and stop the Devil and her sister from destroying Death Inc. Callie still has a lot of growing up to do, but she truly is a role model for young girls who are still trying to figure out who they are. Callie doesn't like everything she must do, but she does it because it is the right thing - not because it tickles her fancy.
- Samantha Ridgway
The downside of Callie's new life? She seems to be back at square one with the battle between good and evil. Now unable to know who to trust, and who's playing her like a fiddle, she finds that sometimes you have to make temporary alliances to further yourself in the game. She plays a rousing game of chicken with her immortal weakness as she finally learns what hers is, and is taken by surprise when it's discovered that a well trusted family friend and ally has been playing on the enemy's team pretty much the whole time.
Benson, once again, successfully intertwines the mythology from the past books with some Japanese water mythology which gives this book a whole new depth. The loose ends are seemingly all tied up. Guess we'll have to wait to see what the next book holds!
The only irksome critique I could give "Serpent's Storm" was the hint of amateurish writing in describing aspects of heaven and God. This reader was very close to being offended by Benson's attempt to rewrite parts of the bible. Overall, most readers will enjoy "Serpent's Storm".
So, go ahead, hit add to cart and get started!!!!!!!!!!
