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."

Well what a surprise

After reading the blurb I was a little sceptical but couldn’t find anything else to tickle my fancy. I was pleasantly impressed by this tale and I’m now looking forward to working my way through the rest in the set

I liked it.

That was very good. Its a great story. The Indian intrest provides a change to the usual outcomes and the story is full of interest.
I liked it a lot.
I am looking forwards to more like it in the future.
