Publisher's Summary

The frost creeps again...
Taught the sword from childhood, Shanis Malan's only dream is to be a soldier, but a woman cannot join the Galdoran army. She thinks her dream has come true when Prince Lerryn hosts a tournament in her town, but circumstances snatch her from her home and carry her into the midst of a quest for a legendary artifact that can save the world from the minions of Tichris the Ice King. Join Shanis and her friends on a perilous quest for the Silver Serpent.
Hugo Award-winner Ron Miller calls The Silver Serpent "A superb story told believably and unpretentiously by a superb new author." The Asgard Oracle calls The Silver Serpent "A gripping epic fantasy in the tradition of Robert Jordan, Raymond Feist and David Eddings."

narrator ruins story

I am giving this book 2 stars because the story is pretty good. The characters are thin but lets face it most sci-fi or fantasy does not have well drawn or very believable characters. If I had read this I might have given it 3 stars. The narrator is so bad he defies description. Some of the voices he uses are so phony and jarring the action comes to a screeching halt. His pronunciation of many words is giggle worthy. He doesn't seem to know the difference between such words as dingy and dinghy, deprecate/depreciate, tinge/tingle, etc, etc, etc. Do yourself a favor. If the story interests you read it and supply the voices in your own mind.
