New Release! Serpent of the Shangrove #ASMSG

Copper is now a fully grown Drakken, but despite his magical abilities, he is shunned and shamed by his pure-blood kin.

Wandering despondent in the wilderness, Copper discovers a portal that reminds him of his lost crèche mate, left behind when the Drakkens fled their ancestral home. Knowing the portal will only remain open for three short days, Copper cannot resist the challenge to bring the lost maiden to safety, and prove himself worthy of his breed.

But the other world is not what he and his kin expected. The peoples are hostile, the Angressi emperor has not forgotten his grudge, and something is killing Samara Maidens.

In this eagerly anticipated sequel to her bestseller, Darkspire Reaches, CN Lesley transports us back into the world of Drakkens, of Connor and Raven, and of their son.

Deep in the Shangrove—a dark place that feeds on creatures of magic—a new evil is growing, waiting for the perfect mate.

Picking up where Darkspire Reaches left off, Serpent of the Shangrove will keep you glued to its pages as the son of Raven and Connor plunges back into the world they fled in a daring but ill-fated attempt to rescue the hatchling he can not forget—the one who was left behind. Unprepared for combat against what he will find, it will be up to Copper’s mother and father to rescue him from his own valor. None of them would have guessed that sorcery and entrapment will leave one of them begging for death before the rescue attempt is over. The hopes of all are fragile, and the complexly-woven trap can not be defeated solely by honor and courage. It will also require self-forgiveness, sacrifice and compassion. The reader will not be disappointed as C.N. Lesley’s unforgettable characters join together to rise to the challenge.

Copper, grown son of Conner and Raven, is not accepted for who and what he is. He has feelings for Rosella, but the pretty girl scorns Copper’s mixed blood. Raven worries about the spoiled girl, wishing she could attack the brat with a swarm of insects. She follows Conner’s advice, leaving Copper to fight his own battles.

Despite the challenges that he faces, Copper is determined to do the right thing. Sometimes it’s difficult to know exactly what that is.

C.N Lesley continues to hold readers in thrall with the fantasy masterpiece Serpent of the Shangrove, sequel to Darkspire Reaches. It was great to see Kryling again. The little firedrake has his good and bad sides, but managed to lodge himself in my heart anyway.
