SUMMARY ☆ GWAIRSOFT.CO.UK ✓ Scott ODell

Serena Lynn age seventeen turns down an appointment to serve England's King James I at court in order to follow her beloved Anthony Foxcroft across the sea to the newly founded. Oh dear I re read this book because I loved it when I was in 4th or 5th grade and I picked up a dollar paperback at half price books This book isn't good I think I must have liked it as a kid because the adventure is interesting Our protag Serena follows the man she is in love with to the new world gets shipwrecked in Bermuda ends up in Jamestown and then because she is the same age as Pocahontas is asked to solicit her help for the colony All of that sounds good but all that is missing is any kind of compelling dialogue socio historical context characterization description or tension

REVIEW Serpent Never Sleeps

Serpent Never SleepsColony of Jamestown But their ship loaded with much needed supplies founders in a hurricane wrecking Serena and Anthony in Bermuda By the time they make their way to Jamestown t. The plot is a bit jumpy but the history and the descriptions of Bermuda and the New World as well as the sea voyage are rich and alive The characters and their hardships are believable though Serena much of the time was merely an observer I was mostly disappointed with the book's summary on the cover which says that Serena's view of Anthony Foxcroft would change It doesn't She suffers many hardships but her emotions are only described through her actions which at times makes her seem like an unfeeling character The other characters are similarly described but as the story is not told from their perspective it doesn't matter Overall I enjoyed the book and its connection to history O'Dell obviously did a lot of research and though the story started slow for me the last half made up for it I recommend this book to O'Dell fans and to those who enjoy historical fiction
