Audio Book Review: The Silver Serpent by David Debord

The Silver Serpent (The Absent Gods, #1)The Silver Serpent by David Debord
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This felt like the starts of a journey to find who they are.

We have 4 young adults who are of the age to start adulthood. But... they have other ideas about what they want to do compared to what their parents say they are to do. And with the news Oskar shares about a big tournament for champions announced to happen in their little village with the Prince present, Shanis and Hierm are excited to enter. However, when the Princes guards and many others are in town for the competition, one guard gets an idea to have his way with a young girl. Shanis helps Khalyndryn and the four young adults go on the run, fearing what would happen to them with a princes guard killed.

This leads them to find two "merchants" and join them on their mission... to find the Silver Serpent.

As they embark on this journey, these four young adults along with the two new friends learn more about themselves, the kingdom, and countries around them. They learn about friendship, love, and who they are.

This story does have a feel of young growth to it as I listened.

The audio version was nice, though the names are so, so close to the same that it's hard to tell who's name it being said. There was a few times I thought Larris was mentioned instead of his brother's name, and vise versa. This makes it hard to follow at times when talking about family. Other than the names, the audio was nice.
