Venom of the Serpent’s Cunning by LRW Lee

Andy arrives back in Oomaldee just in time to go after the Stone of Athanasia and save the King and Mermin. Andy and Alden make several discoveries along the way, including that King Hercalon V looked just like Andy when he was 15, making Andy suspicious that they might somehow be related.

My 10- and 12-year-old boys absolutely love the Andy Smithson series. As soon as we finished reading Venom of the Serpent’s Cunning, they begged me to buy the third book to read to them (which I happily did because I’m enjoying the series, too!). There is lots of action and adventure, but since it’s aimed at a younger audience, it’s not too intense (which is not to say it is not scary or sad at times, because it definitely can be!). I highly recommend this book and the whole series to middle grade kids on up. It makes a great read-aloud!
