The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner | Book Review

The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner is among the best books I’ve read so far in 2016, debut or no. I suppose it is a bit premature to proclaim this already in March. However, there was something about Zentner’s The Serpent King that really spoke to me on a deeper level. This book is beautiful, […]
