Rise of the Snake Goddess (1)Book Title: Rise of the Snake Goddess (Samantha Knox #2)

Author: Jenny Elder Moke

Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

Release Date: June 7, 2022

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Mystery

Synopsis:

Samantha Knox is back for another adventure in this 1920s female-driven mystery-adventure series!

Sam Knox’s second adventure takes her to the island of Crete, just off the coast of Greece, where she discovers the ancient Snake Goddess’s golden girdle in the depths of a cave shrine that has been buried for decades. After having been belittled by her archaeology professor throughout her first college semester, Sam knows this triumph will prove her worth in the field, but before she can take credit for the find, the girdle is stolen and the island is hit with a series of earthquakes that don’t feel quite geological.

Soon Sam, Bennett and Jo are embroiled in a wild hunt―one that takes them to tiny island shops, a glamorous auction party and a near fiery death―to find the girdle before someone can use it to raise an ancient goddess from her slumber. The final battle features gryphons, a labyrinth, the minotaur of legend and lots of snakes. Lots.

My Top 5 Reasons to Read Rise of the Snake Goddess

Before I dive into my top five reasons, I want to add how much I love this series. I loved the first book, Curse of the Specter Queen, and I’m really looking forward to more Samantha Knox adventures. Jenny Elder Moke does such an amazing job with this series! I’m so excited for more people to read Sam’s next adventure and fall in love with her thirst for adventure all over again. 

  1. I would describe the Samantha Knox series as Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft meets National Treasure. Need I say more? 
  2. Sam is so knowledgeable and brave, but also has those feelings anyone may have, especially during college: doubt, envy, and the feelings of being unworthy.
  3. Joana, Sam’s best friend, is such a fun and hilarious character, and just like the first book, she shines in the sequel.
  4. I love that Moke shows beautiful, heartfelt moments between Sam and Bennett, but I also love how she showed obstacles the couple needed to overcome, which made their relationship so realistic. 
  5. There’s not a single thing I didn’t love about Rise of the Snake Goddess – talk about adventure, friendship, romance, and mystery! All the best elements to make a book an entertaining and page-turning read!

My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
