Editorial Reviews

Review

"Son of the Serpent features a conflict of phenomenal proportions, characters that are richly developed and compelling, and a skillfully designed plot that keeps the reader turning the pages. I loved every bit of the narrative, especially the author's unique phraseology and clarity of expression." -- Readers' Favorite

"Son of the Serpent by Vashti Quiroz-Vega is a fantasy novel of vengeance and revenge told from the dual perspective of Dracul, the Son of the serpent, and Lillith, his mother.
Dracul arises in a cave and discovers that he's encased in a demonic body. He's filled with agony and confusion as he pieces together his memories to determine how he arrived there. In a painful and shocking epiphany, he realizes that he is the son of Lilith and that Lilith had tried to kill him. He vows to find out what happened and avenge himself. On this bloodthirsty journey, he faces death, destruction, and betrayal. People, encounters, and events further cement his determination for revenge. The author breathes new life into a host of fantastical characters, often from Biblical settings. Their lives and stories are familiar, yet enshrouded in darkness.
What I found most striking about the book was the depth of its darkness and morbidity. Vivid, gory scenes of slaughter left me uncomfortable, but totally engrossed. Lilith's sections were almost unbearable. Scenes of Lilith's cruelty towards others was always accompanied by a fascinating glimpse into her psyche. There's a lot going on in her and just a surface glimpse was enough to leave me mesmerized. It's been a while since I encountered such a well-portrayed and dislikable antagonist.
Dracul was just as well-written. His struggle to be good in the face of his own destiny was oddly inspiring. To fight where he came from, to whom he belongs, and the core of his being- his pain and loneliness were palpable. The ending was unexpected, but upon consideration, entirely perfect. Maybe it's not inherent to him, but it's clear that Dracul is a good creature.
The Biblical settings and references provided a whole new perspective on the worn-out stories. From angels to Cain and Abel, the otherworldly features heavily in this book- and not always in a favorable light. The Biblical events portrayed from a first-person and real-time perspective were super imaginative. I think it would be difficult to assign a genre to this book. Although it is set primarily in a fantasy world, the dashes of horror, romance, and the occult would make it an interesting read for nearly anyone. The world created by Vashti Quiroz-Vega is totally immersive. I was glad for the escape from reality and I would definitely visit again." -LITERARY TITAN

From the Author

Son of the Serpent is a Supernatural / High Fantasy sprinkled with Horror and Romance. This book is aimed at an adult audience (18+). There are scenes not meant for the faint of heart and some sexual content. 
"Son of the Serpent is the second entry in the Fantasy Angels Series by Vashti Quiroz-Vega, a tale of fallen angels and demons and one that explores the darkest part of our nature. This is a story with strong appeal to fans of the supernatural, with compelling characters and powerful spiritual themes. Dracúl wakes up lonely in a forest. The only memory he has is that of being the son of Satan. But he sets out on a quest to discover himself, to reconnect with others, a journey that will transform into an insatiable quest for revenge when he learns about the vilest of fallen angels -- Lilith -- the one with a dream so terrible it can sink the world. Dracúl and Lilith are set on a collision course that will shock the very foundations of existence. But can Dracúl tame the darker part of his nature and seek meaning?" 
-Readers' Favorite
***
"As Lilith and Dracúl pursue their quests, the author walks readers through the familiar stories of the Old Testament. Dracúl is present when Cain murders Abel. He seeks shelter among the beasts on Noah's Ark and witnesses the fall of Sodom and Gomorrah. And in this volume, all these terrible events are triggered by Lilith's pure malevolence. Quiroz-Vega deftly spins a fantasy that puts a new and intriguing twist on age-old biblical tales. It's a fun revision, with Dracúl popping in to rescue the baby Moses and Lilith overseeing the construction of the Tower of Babel. This Creation story, which incorporates so many fantasy elements, also crosses over into horror. The author doesn't shy away from detailing terrible acts of violence. She vividly describes Egyptian soldiers murdering infants, memorably portraying the "myriad of dead and mangled babies" who "floated downstream on the Nile." Familiarity has softened some of the horrors described in biblical stories, but Quiroz-Vega doesn't hesitate to bring the intrinsic brutality to the forefront. 
Complex and well-drawn characters round out a creative and horrifying fantasy." --Kirkus Reviews
