Evan and Claire Jones are typical teenagers, forced to go with their parents to yet another boring museum . . . that is, until something extraordinary happens to make their day a little more than interesting. After following a strange little creature into a closed exhibit, Evan and his older sister, Claire, discover the Serpent's Ring, one of the magical relics formed from the shattered Mysticus Orb. Purely by accident, they have awakened its powers and opened a portal to Sagaas, land of ancient gods. Before the siblings can comprehend what has happened, the Serpent's Ring is wrenched from Evan's hand by an enormous flying fish and flown to Aegir, the Norse god of the sea. Evan and Claire, accompanied by a band of unlikely heroes, must retrieve the Serpent's Ring before Aegir uses its immense powers to flood all the lands on Earth. For Middle Grade readers and higher Fans of: Percy Jackson Series, Harry Potter Series, The Hobbit, and The Chronicles of Narnia Series.
I saw this book on Amazon one day and downloaded for free but never had a chance to read it. I have noticed this book around on blog tours and have always wanted to read it. I even entered a few giveaways to try and win the 1st and 2nd book. Never won, so when the H.B. Bolton contacted me via email I was so excited that we wanted me to read her series I was really looking forward to reading and now I was getting the chance. Was I disappointed? Nope this was a fantastic read, one that I plan to make…yes make….my son read. I think he would really enjoy and as much as I did.
Evan and Claire have a great brother & sister chemistry. I loved how much they grow throughout the book. I loved the world build and the story. I don’t have a lot of knowledge of Norse mythology so I had to look a lot of people up. I think I needed a little more explanation on who each person/god was. Once I figured them out I really enjoyed it, I actually loved them underwater, That entire part of the book was my favorite.
I gave the Serpents Ring 4/5 stars, It is a wonderful read filled with action, adventure, humor and a lot of fun. Can’t wait to read the next one in the series.
Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my review
Hope you have a great day and Happy Reading!
