Happy Book Birthday, Cindy!
SERPENTINE is a sweeping fantasy set in the ancient Kingdom of Xia and inspired by the rich history of Chinese mythology.
Lush with details from Chinese folklore, SERPENTINE tells the coming of age story of Skybright, a young girl who worries about her growing otherness. As she turns sixteen, Skybright notices troubling changes. By day, she is a companion and handmaid to the youngest daughter of a very wealthy family. But nighttime brings with it a darkness that not even daybreak can quell.
When her plight can no longer be denied, Skybright learns that despite a dark destiny, she must struggle to retain her sense of self â even as she falls in love for the first time.
âVivid worldbuilding, incendiary romance, heart-pounding action, and characters that will win you overâI highly recommend Serpentine.â Cinda Williams Chima, best-selling author of the Seven Realms and Heir Chronicles fantasy novels
âSerpentine is unique and surprising, with a beautifully-drawn fantasy world that sucked me right in! I love Skybrightâs transformative power, and how she learns to take charge of it.â ~Kristin Cashore, NYT Bestseller of the Graceling Realm Series
âSerpentineâs world oozes with lush details and rich lore, and the characters crackle with life. This is one story that youâll want to lose yourself in.â ~ Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of Legend and The Young Elites
