L. R. W. Leeabout this book: "This series has everything a kid could want, action, adventure, magic, excitement and mystery!" - Erik Weibel, This Kid Reviews Books (Erik is 12)
Venom of the Serpent's Cunning is the continuation of L. R. W. Lee's well-received debut novel Blast of the Dragon's Fury and the next offering in this seven-book Andy Smithson allegorical, fantasy, adventure series for middle graders.
Andy Smithson returns to the land of Oomaldee to retrieve the second ingredient needed to break the 500-year-old curse that plagues the land. He has run-ins with kappas who attempt to drown him, discovers new powers as he plays Oscray, is attacked by vicious pixies, and battles a new foe, a Bellicose, conjured from the darkest magic with instructions to kill him.
If that's not bad enough, the Stone of Athanasia that keeps the King and Mermin alive eternally, is stolen, leaving them gravely ill. Andy must choose between obeying the specific directive he has been given to collect the second ingredient, or retrieve the stone and save those he loves.
• "LRW Lee has constructed a wonderful world full of adventure, daring deeds, and remarkable action tempered with the right dose of humor. This wildly addictive series will entertain middle grade students, who, like I, will anxiously await the release of book three."
— Sue Morris, Kid Lit Reviews
• "There is a strong good versus evil theme underscoring the plot making it a clean story with no bad language but lots of exciting action and suspense. If you adore fantasy books with a medieval theme including knights and dragons, this story definitely fits that bill."
— Wayne S. Walker, Home School Book Reviews
