4 out of 5

Danica and Zane have achieved a lot in their aim of peace between the avains and serpiente. However, when Danica becomes pregnant, will the peace last long? Also, a falcon named Syfka comes and that causes more problems, so is the falcon just there to find their missing falcon? Or, is she there just to stir up trouble amongst their people?

Another supernatural book, however, this time it is about shapeshifters, again. Yay. \o/

As a second book of series, Snakecharm was very well written, but I like the first book a lot more than this one. It’s not as good as the first book, but it is still a good book to read. The plot of the second book is still a little common, but that doesn’t make it any less special. This book has suspense, romance, betrayals, and shapeshifters. Finding shapeshifter books, just on their own, are rare, so that makes this book even more wonderful.

I just love the main character Zane and Danica, but unlike the first book there is hardly any clashing between them. Also, the way all the characters develop in this book is great, but they could have grown a little bit more than what they did. The descriptions and events are also very well done, but a little bit more about how the other characters look like would have made it a little bit better. Also, unlike the first book, the narrator for this one is Zane, not Danica.

Even though the plot is typical — two separate group at war, two people characters marry to stop the war, peace comes, the ruler gets pregnant, but then the heir issue comes up — you should go ahead and read this book/series. Though, like I said before, I didn’t really like this book. I like how the main characters are still Zane and Danica, but not how the focus is not completely on them. To me, it would have been better just to end it with the first book, and not this one. I just hope the other books in this series don’t ruin how I view the series right now.

Anyways, go ahead and read the book, even though it doesn’t have the same spark as the first one.
