Synopsis (Found on
Hai has always been an outsider. With a falcon mother and a deceased cobra father, she is considered a mongrel by most, an ally by some, and a friend by few. Hai's broken falcon wings are a painful reminder of the life she once led on the island of Ahnmik. And here in Wyvern's Court, the avian and serpiente royal family keep their distance, refusing to acknowledge her cobra bloodline. They know that Hai's magic is so volatile, she can barely control it, and images of the past and future threaten to overwhelm her.

When Hai's cousin, Oliza Shardae Cobriana, abdicates the throne of Wyvern's Court, Hai has visions only of destruction: the serpiente king Salem, dying in her arms; the dutiful guard, Nicias, unable to save a generation of children; and Wyvern's Court engulfed in flames.

Now Hai will do anything to protect her new home - even if it means betraying the very people who need her most.

My Review: 

Ok. This book was weird and confusing. I didn't like the character of Hai. She evoked no emotion from me except dislike. I could have cared less if she had died during the book (which she didn't). Half the time I didn't even understand what I was reading and had to reread the same passages over and over. There was too much myth in this book that got slammed into its pages, that should have be delved out throughout the course of the series. The constant visions that Hai has are confusing and start to get a little bit annoying. And when Hai declared herself Queen of the serpiente? Oh no I was not happy . I really did not like how the author portrayed Zane and Danica during that scene or how their people reacted to them. I loved them in Hawksong and Snakecharm and to see Rhodes crap on them upset me.

By this book I was just reading it to see how the series ended. The last three books of this series just wasn't up to par with how Amelia Atwater Rhodes writing and stories are. She is such a good author and I love all her other books but these just weren't as amazing as the other ones. I really like the first two book of this series "Hawksong" and "Snakecharm" and I think she should have stopped this series with those two books. That's just my opinion.
