Pre-Order and Giveaway: Serpentine by Cindy Pon

Pre-Order and Giveaway: Serpentine by Cindy Pon

Today we are happy to be part of the pre-order and giveaway opportunity for Cindy Pon's novel SerpentineYou can find a message and more information below!


Meet Cindy.


Cindy Pon is the author of Silver Phoenix, named one of the top ten fantasy novels for youth by Booklist. She lives with her husband and two children in San Diego, California.


Cindy says, "Serpentine is a book of my heart. I knew from the start that I wanted to write a story that focused on a strong female friendship. As an author, I wanted to concentrate on the dynamics of relationships--their complexities and joys--and how they shape my heroine's own journey to self-discovery. What if you woke up one night and your lower half had changed into a serpentine body? What if you were told that you were half-demonic and a temptress of lore? What if who you thought you always were was nothing like you turned out to be? Serpentine is a coming of age story like none you have read before."



Now meet Cindy's book!


Inspired by the rich history of Chinese mythology, this sweeping fantasy is set in the ancient Kingdom of Xia and tells the coming of age story of Skybright, a young girl who worries about her growing otherness. As she turns 16, Skybright notices troubling changes. By day, she is a companion and handmaid to the youngest daughter of a very wealthy family. But nighttime brings with it a darkness that not even daybreak can quell. When her plight can no longer be denied, Skybright learns that despite a dark destiny, she must struggle to retain her sense of self – even as she falls in love for the first time.

"It always gives me such joy to share my art, so I have decided to give away a brush painting card with every pre-order copy of Serpentine through Mysterious Galaxy. (One card for each copy ordered.)
