This review is from: The Serpent in the Glass (The Tale of Thomas Farrell) (Kindle Edition) I bought this for my 11 year old
Daughter for Christmas, for her new Kindle. Tad slow to start but she finished it in 4 days and is looking for more by this Author.
I have started to read it too and love the way this appeals to both Kiddles and Growed Ups alike. Highly recommended.

This review is from: The Serpent in the Glass (The Tale of Thomas Farrell) (Kindle Edition) Had this book recommended and
decided to give it a go. Although aimed at younger readers it's suitable for adults, too. The story is well constructed and the
characters come to life in such a way that you care what happens to them. As the previous review stated, the beginning could
be considered a little slow, but I have it on good authority that the second edition is addressing this issue and will reach the
more engrossing part of the tale faster. The book ends in such a way as to be complete whilst still leaving scope for a sequel
should the author wish to write one (I hope he does!)All in all, well worth the read and an excellent way to begin a writing career.
More please! :-)

A Delightful Read!, March 1, 2012 By Donald B. Anderson (author)
This review is from: The Serpent in the Glass (The Tale of Thomas Farrell) (Kindle Edition) Darren Andrews has written a
delightful tale that is well-told. The Serpent in the Glass is engaging, fun, meaningful, and is the kind of tale I love to see my
children enjoy. The Serpent in the Glass is entertaining to me as an adult, and left me wishing other books in this series were
already available so I could continue the saga. I look forward to more of about Thomas Farrell from Darren Andrews.
