Title: Vanity’s Brood

Series: House of Serpents #3, Forgotten Realms

Author: Lisa Smedman

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars

Genre: Fantasy

Pages: 320



Arvin must rescue Karell before she gives birth. At the same time, he must prevent Sybil from freeing the Serpent God and becoming its Avatar.


My Thoughts:

The maundering end to this trilogy.

Arvin pretends to not know which way he wants to react for most of the book and the reader is expected to go along and then act surprised when he makes it.

The romantic angle between Arvin and Karell is milked for all it is possibly worth. Arvin’s heritage is revealed and that makes everything ok between him and Karell.

Glad I read this, but definitely not worth buying the hardcovers, unlike some of Smedman’s other Forgotten Realms works.
