Our Review of The Silver Serpent

I had absolutely loved this series and by the looks of it, I believe that this was a finale which is sad because I was actually starting to get deep into this series. It gave me all kinds of Nancy Drew vibes and in a good way. It was nice to get into a light and fun sleuthing journey but one that didn’t sound too kiddish. That my friends is an art. Technically it’s a middle-grade book…right? but the way it has weaved the plot makes it very interesting and doesn’t feel too middle-gradey. if you get my drift. That is the reason why I kept falling for the series over the course of three books

I loved all three books so much that I keep returning to the author’s page to see if there are any more books in the series. I loved getting into this book and not having to take out my pencils and crime boards to track everything. It is simple enough to follow yet twisted enough to keep you excited. So I could get in read and finish a quick sleuthing in a matter of hours and feel absolutely having read something exciting

The book as said, is very easy to follow. All three books yes definitely has a continuation aspect but even so, each book takes up a different plot in each of its book and therefore in my opinion can be read as a standalone and cookie crumbs are there to keep you in the loop with what happened in the previous book.


In conclusion, I would say the series is amazing and a quick cozy amateur sleuthing but fun and interesting all the way. I really wished that there would have been more books in the series. If you are looking for a quick, light and a bit of young Nancy Drew style read, this is PERFECT!
