Snakecharm was not a bad book. In fact, I enjoyed it. I liked how the story was told from Zane's point of veiw so we got to know his past a bit more. I also was very interested in the Falcons...who seemed a bit arrogant (which, since they were supposed to be I guess, was good for the book)

However, the ending was a little too..well, I can't think of a way to describe almost seemed like Amelia just threw the ending on and left a bunch of holes for the reader to fill in. Maybe she did so intentionally, but it just did not sit well with me because it took away from the realism of the book (then again, it is about shapshifters and it can only be so real, but i'm talking about the characters here...

Overall, Snakecharm was good, but I still think Hawksong was better

Snakecharm was more than what I expected. The plot was very descriptive and you could visualize a lot. Sometimes a sequel isn't as good as the first book but Snakecharm lived up to Hawksong. After an almost fatal ambush Danica and Zane's hopes were almost jeopardized but then they found a way that could benefit both the avian and serpiente court. I would highly recommend it after reading Hawksong.

Snakecharm was a very good book. But I must say that after reading Hawksong, Snakecharm left something to be desired. The plot of this novel was fairly predictable, not something that I like in my books, and I found that it all came out honkey-dorry at the end. I don't mean to say that all novels need to be evil and grotesque in order to be good, but when everything pans out fine, with little or no consequence, it doesn't sit too well with me. It is the consequences and sad things in a fictional story that make it seem real. I found that there wasn't enough real emotions in this novel.

I also found that the descriptions of the characters left something to be desired. They just didn't leave me with the same wonderous feeling as Hawksong did.

All in all, Snakecharm was a good book (a bit short), but a good book. None the less, it was a step down from Hawksong.
