  1. Oh boy, oh boy! The snake dude looks AWESOME. I couldn’t picture him that well while I was reading, but this brings him to life in such a magnificent way for such a badass dude. How fun! I need a finished copy asap; for the art alone I’d kill for one. xD

  2. I think I was too late to enter the giveaway, but I really want to read this series! I’ve said this about a million times though! :)
