I very much like the idea behind The Serpent. Claire North is a brilliant mind. Her ideas so far have all been incredibly unique.
The Serpent is a story about a young wife who is swept up into a game where the pieces are real people, the board is the city of Venice, and the moves have real implications on world events.
I did not enjoy the writing style of North. Its very dry. It hardly ever moves with a passion. You can tell that North has no knack for writing itself. She does though have a knack for ideas. The idea here saves this story from total loss. I'd recommend this novella if you are wanting to explore something new. Its short. Its a great idea. And once you are done, your left with some new thoughts.
