D.M. Andrewsabout this book: This is a book about an eleven-year-old boy who has no idea who his parents were. As the story continues, he finds out more about them, and more about himself. Myth and magic permeate the storyline as it reaches its final ferocious and moving scene...
The Serpent in the Glass was initially inspired by the legends of Avebury in Wiltshire, England. It is also influenced by the author's love of Irish and British myths and legends.
The book is aimed at the 9-12 age group, but is written so that all ages can enjoy it.

Highly recommended whatever your age (I am 54)I was recommended to read this book by a friend and I am glad that I listened to her. I thought at first it would be a poor Harry Potter imitation; it is not, it is original and difficult to put down. I read it in one sitting. I found it very interesting and I eagerly await the next in the series. I do hope that there will be one soon.
