Publisher's Summary

From the magical mysteries of India to the gaslit streets of Victorian London, Mercedes Lackey's unique departure from her Valdemar series follows a young woman doctor as she searches for the secret behind the sorcery in her blood.


What the Critics Say

"Mercedes Lackey returns to form in The Serpent's Shadow...."This story takes place in the London of 1909, and is based on "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." Lackey creates echoes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, pays affectionate homage to Dorothy Sayers's Lord Peter Wimsey (who plays an important role under a thin disguise), and turns the dwarves into seven animal avatars who masquerade as pets of her Eurasian heroine, Maya."

Magic abounds.

A good story with strong characters. My only misgiving, but only a very miner one, was the story seemed, to myself at least, to be very slow in places. But still a recommended story.

Quite a decent reader, which is extremely important. The only beef i have is that the woman reading the book seems to think that the Irish doctor in the book is actually Jamaican. I have never heard such a bad 'Irish' accent. Really.
