FEATURED BOOK: Son of the Serpent by Vashti Quiroz-Vega

Our featured book is a Dark Fantasy novel about angels and demons, but with a different angle.
In SON OF THE SERPENT, the son of Satan does not know who he is.

When he finds out... will he choose Good or Evil?

In Son of the Serpent, award-winning author Vashti Quiroz-Vega crafts another fascinating glimpse into the dark, compelling world of fallen angels and demons, revealing more about their untold stories.

The war in heaven might be over, but the ambitions of the fallen angel Lilith reach far across the roots of history. Will there be a being powerful enough to stop her evil influence before the destruction of mankind?

DracĂșl knows he is the son of Satan, but the rest of his memory has been taken from him. Alone and frightened, he awakens in a forest, beginning a quest to piece together who he is. The world he encounters is cruel, but he yearns to belong and find companionship. With each step he takes, another missing piece of his memory falls into place, revealing a truth that is ever more troubling . . .

A truth that will turn his quest for meaning into one fueled by the hot-blooded thirst for revenge. A truth that leads him to Lilith, the most wicked and ruthless of fallen angels and one he soon will have every reason to hate. His quest will consume him, perhaps ruin his life, but somehow DracĂșl is determined to find both belonging and vengeance—to be good, in spite of his evil nature and the dark secrets that haunt him every step of the way.

** For mature readers


"Quiroz-Vega strikes again with this sequel, whose genre is so original that it's hard to describe. It's an altered creation myth, yes, but encompasses more territory than strictly biblical. I think I won't even attempt to sketch the plot, except to say expect the unexpected. There is no way even the most jaded reader could predict the plot twists in Son of the Serpent, and the many callbacks and connections to the standard versions of the familiar, ancient myths."

"This author is unafraid to explore the dark side whilst still allowing her readers a small measure of hope to offer a brief respite from the raw edge of ‘Lilith’."
