Benson has no fear when it comes to putting her characters in painful situations. With two shocking events early on in the book, she brought tears to my eyes. Calliope has always been a strong character and I feel like I've gotten to know her more in this third book. The development of the plot is so fast-paced and I'm excited to find out what happens to Calliope next. This book is a storm of emotions, with twists and turns of the forest in Hell it had me laughing out loud on the bus one moment and crying on the pages the next. It's not often I read as I walk down the street (I'm prone to walking into lamp posts, even when I'm looking where I'm going) but I couldn't put this book down.

Serpent's Storm is the third book in Amber Benson's Calliope Reaper-Jones series. Calliope (Callie to her friends) is back but she faces the toughest challenge yet to try and save her family and herself from some dangerous enemies some of whom may be a lot closer than she thinks.

If you are new to this series I really would recommend that you read the Death's Daughter and Cat's Claw before picking up Serpent's Storm. Amber has also included enough of Callie's back story so that the reader would be able to follow the story. However you will get a much greater sense of who Callie is and the journey she has taken this far if you read the previous two novels first.

The success of the series has been Amber's ability to blend her rich vision of the afterlife which incorporates many religious and mythological figures but does so without insulting anyone's beliefs or cultures. Instead it celebrates them and incorporates them into a unique and original world which has its own rules and customs. This combined with believable characters with their own personalities, Calliope the heroine of this series is the best example of this. She may have a powerful birth right but that does not make her invincible or perfect. Indeed like all of us she has her talents, strengths, vulnerabilities and doubts.You won't always agree with the decisions she makes but at the end of the day loyalty and her sense of humour shines through and you can't stop rooting for her. One of the things I enjoyed the most when reading Serpent storm was to see just how much Callie had developed as a person from when we first meet her in Death's Daughter. Serpent Storm has a much darker tone than in the previous two novels in the series, as death strikes close to home and relationships are stretched to breaking point.

First off - I kind of liked books one and two of this series. They were a fun ride. But this third book is beyond a mess.
Secondly - do not be fooled by the ten five star reviews already listed for this book. I had a look at these so called 'reviewers' and at least five of them have only ever reviewed one or both of Amber Benson's books. Very suspicious - maybe her fan club.
Okay - so lets get down to the problem with the book - the main character, Calliope. She's annoying, irritating, self absorbed, selfish, inconsistent, jumps to wild (really stupid) conclusions when presented with evidence. I seriously did not remember her being this annoying in the first two books. Calliope even knows she's being a brat, selfish, inconsistent etc, and often references her own actions but does absolutely nothing to change her behaviour - it is beyond maddening and makes it a really hard book to slog through. I've come to a grinding halt at the 50% mark and not sure if I can dredge up enough energy to keep going. I expected this character to grow, mature and evolve but she seems to be going backwards.
Tread very carefully when approaching this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have very little in common with Calliope Reaper-Jones. I am the reverse of the shopoholic - the idea of going clothes shopping fills me with rabbit-in-headlights horror. I seriously love cats. I am not the heir of the Grim Reaper. This is not the sort of book you would think I'd relate to, but I pretty much gobbled up all three of these books with gleeful abandon. Why? Because the characters are so likeable, the story is so well written and, well, it's a lot of fun. I'm about as likely to start trawling the fashion bargains as I am to start hanging out with Cerberus in Hell, but I like to see through Calliope's eyes, and have come to think of her as one of those friends who gives me a real break from my usual preoccupations precisely because she is so unlike anyone I'd normally socialise with.

Why should you read this? Because you'll be rewarded with snarky dialogue, sympathetic characters, startling twists, genuine emotion and probably the hottest sex scene I've read (and that was somewhat badly timed in my work canteen). If, like me, this seems to be a little off your usual beaten track and out of your comfort zone... well, don't be a chicken, you might just make a new friend.

It's rare that you find such fast-paced stories, but Amber manages to keep up the non-stop action all the way through this book. SS takes up a much darker and more serious tone than the previous books, but don't worry, there's still plenty of humour to keep you laughing. Calliope may be one of the greatest examples of how a chicken can become a heroine (How did they get such a bad rap anyway? Has no one seen 'Chicken Run'!). I strongly recommend the whole series and can't wait to read the next one.
