This is the second book in the Kingdom of the Serpent trilogy which started with Jack of Ravens.

This is the second book in the Kingdom of the Serpent trilogy which started with Jack of Ravens. Where the first book was a meander through history, this is a flat out gallop around the world. It picks up where the first book ends and the synopsis above covers enough of the plot. The pace never really lets up and you get a real sense of urgency for the characters and their tasks.

The population is unaware, mesmerised by the Mundane Spell that keeps them in thrall. With a small group of trusted allies, Jack sets out to find the two 'keys' that can shatter the spell. But the keys are people - one with the power of creation, one the power of destruction - and they are hidden somewhere among the world's billions. As the search fans out across the globe, ancient powers begin to stir. In the bleak North, in Egypt, in Greece, in all the Great Dominions, the old gods are returning to stake their claim. The odds appear insurmountable, the need desperate ...This is a time for heroes.

Having travelled through time in the previous book of this series, Jack Churchill and his cohorts now travel the world meeting the Old Gods, while also searching for two keys (people) who will destroy the Mundane Spell that is keeping humanity mesmerized and unaware of the approach of the end of life.
Across the continents meeting, battling and sometimes being aided by the Old Gods: the Norse, Egyptian, Greek and Chinese pantheons who are not always sympathetic to humanity's suffering.
In the Tuatha De Danann otherworld there is treachery and conflict between the different courts of the golden ones, as the Void slowly gathers it's black army. All of your favourite characters, both heros and villains play their part, with a few surprises along the way.
It's full of small triumphs, strange characters, surprising betrayals, some dry humour and fast paced action.
Chadbourn manages to keep the feeling of menace as a constant driving force, it'll keep you reading and wanting more.
Excellent fantasy writing and will make you eager for the final book "Destroyer of Worlds".

Great series and great book. If your a fan of either modern fantasy or folklore this series is for you. For a proper backstory, start with The Age Of Misrule series, then dark age series. The kingdom of the serpent is the third series in the sequence. Each series has three books for a total of 9. By far my favorite series

Chadbourn is the new master of dark fantasy. Very imaginative with characters one can relate to. A highly recommended read!

I have read the whole series and it just gets better with every book. Chadbourn is a genius writer. If you love mythology, this is an excellent series to read.

This series is one of three from the same author--please go out and read the other two trilogies because it is great fantasy with lots of questions about life, love, and how we treat the earth we live on.

Jack Churchill has finally come home after his adventures in time (see Jack of Ravens). However, the world he returns to is not the same world he left when he began his epic adventure. Evil has deployed the Mundane Spell to control people unaware what is happening to them.

Jack enlists trusted friends to help him locate the two keys that can destroy the Mundane Spell. However finding the keys is nearly impossible as the keys are two people who could be anywhere on the globe. He and his team search for power of creation and the power of destruction that can nullify the Mundane Spell. At the same time, the ancient gods, used to human adulation, are awakening.

The second Kingdom of the Serpent fantasy (eighth in the overall saga) is a fast-paced thriller in which the hero learns the Thomas Wolfe lesson that you can't go home as the home you left no longer exists though in Jack's case the Void remains the prime villain. Loaded with action, fans of the trilogies will enjoy the adventures to liberate the world at a time when old dangers arise. Although it helps to read Jack of Ravens in order to know Jack, a brief introduction enables fans to skip the previous entry. Mark Chadbourn provides a terrific middle book that has a complete storyline yet also sets up the final novel.

Book 2 picks up where book 1 ends. Luckily for those that haven't read the first book (or have a short attention span) if you read the first part "The Final Age" you will be caught up on what came before and the entire necessary back story. Doesn't take long and is very compact, so don't let the idea of needing to read this part first scare you. Then you get into the meat of the tale. You get to visit different cultures (and there gods - no minor thing there!) and find out what happens if the old gods wake up. I don't know about you, but some of the things those old gods were supposed to have done would scare me silly. As the title suggests, there are correlations found in the Burning Man arts festival and the old Celtic burning man. You meet Coyote, Raven, get judged by the Egyptian gods, trapped by the Norse gods, meet Sky father and of course Puck, the Libertarian , Lugh and Rhiannon make return appearances. Let's not forget the Final Train, or what spurned or betrayed love will drive people to do.
