Wihni’s people have maintained their hidden ways of life for hundreds of thousands of years. All she has wanted is to live a life honoring the Old Ways in the seclusion of her sacred lands.

Sionn was born to a people that blend their extraordinary existence into the modern human world. All he has ever wanted is to live a normal life.

Before the team can come together, their defunct group begins to unravel from the core. Everywhere they turn, danger abounds, leaving more questions than answers.

Will they be able to unite a force that can be trained to save the world? Or are they doomed from the start?


Serpent of time, the first installment of the unwritten series did a good job in introducing the reader to the wonderful worlds created by Shelton fox. The vivid description in the book paints pictures of backgrounds, personalities in the mind of the reader. The book is interesting all through, when you’re not eager to see what happens next, you’re busy absorbing how the scenes are painted by fox with words.

It did more than just that, it tells a great story of the adventures of sionn to Iilediiaya and whinni to the human world. This is what made the serpent of time my favorite book in the series yet.

I was advised to read the brotherhood of assault first; that I would enjoy the story more but I feel, if you’re the type that like continuity and consistency in a story, you should start with this one first. I had a lot of “oh, so that’s what happened” moments and “oh, that’s why that happened” moments which were interesting but I still would have loved the book if I read it first. This book is a well crafted project. I highly recommend it.
