Primeval Origins: Rise of Serpents is a work of action-packed science fiction penned by author B. A. Vonsik, and is the third book in the Primeval Origins Saga. Continuing the exploration of the concept of hidden history, wherein all the myths and legends of humanity once had real origins and actually existed, we once again encounter Nikki, the paleo-archaeology graduate, on her journey to discover the creation of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. In this instalment, the exploration turns to the deadly and dangerous snakes of ancient legends: the watchers of humanity who see the corruption and tyranny that is slowly choking the modern world.
Primeval Origins is a conceptually fascinating series which is certain to draw in readers who are interested in the world of mythology and its potential origins in ancient times. On top of this dramatic draw, author B. A. Vonsik writes with an epic atmosphere, calling up old echoing voices with their speeches, proverbs, and warnings as Nikki discovers the frightening reality of the Old Serpents. I found the plot as twisty and dangerous as the snakes themselves, with a well-balanced pace of thoughtful discovery and intense moments of adventure. What results is a superb story told with a cinematic eye for scope and detail, and a leading heroine ready to open her mind to all the possibilities that history has to offer. Overall, Primeval Origins: Rise of the Serpents comes very highly recommended for fantasy, science fiction and mythology fans of all ages.
