From the critically acclaimed and bestselling author of Seraphina comes a piercing new fantasy adventure that champions our resilience and humility.

MIND OF THE WORLD,
OPEN YOUR EYES.
 
At the bottom of the world lies a Serpent, the last of its kind.
Finding the Serpent will change lives.
 
Tess is a girl on a mission to save a friend.
Spira is a dragon seeking a new identity.
Marga is an explorer staking her claim on a man’s world.
Jacomo is a priest searching for his soul.
 
There are those who would give their lives to keep it hidden.
And those who would destroy it.
 
But the only people who will truly find the Serpent are those who have awakened to the world around them—with eyes open to the wondrous, the terrible, and the just.
