Sophie Briggs and the Raging Serpent

Sophie Briggs and the Raging Serpent

The last semester of classes for Sophie Briggs at The School of Roots and Vines is racing to the end. A confrontation and battle with the Serpent, Azdaja, is fast approaching.

The legendary Thicket Hall is dying and no matter what the Defenders do, they can only slow the ancient tree’s death, not stop it.

Could its end lead to a new beginning?

If the Defenders can defeat the Serpent. Then death can lead to new life.

Graduation, a wedding, a death, a rebirth, and an even bigger surprise await Sophie, Marcus, and the Defenders.

Will they be able to put an end to Azdaja for good and use their powers to replant Thicket Hall in time for the next students? Will the School of Roots and Vines survive?

About the Author
Martha Carr

with Michael Anderle

Okay, I'm a late bloomer who's a big DC comics fan and spent my childhood summers on the Jersey shore in the U.S. but have had a weird wanderlust to live in different parts of America ever since. That's enough about me. Need to feel inspired today? Looking for something to make you root for an ordinary hero? I'm all about that in everything I write.

I love a good tale that makes me wonder about things and I love a story even more that leaves me feeling inspired or like I'm capable of doing more than I realized. That's my goal with everything I've ever written. Some of the stories I tell involve twisting, turning thrillers and others have a lot of magic.

There's something to be said for getting lost in another world and coming out the other side feeling a little better about yourself or the possibilities in front of you. That's basically the best part of life in a nutshell, no matter what kind of story I'm setting out to tell.
