Search for the Golden Serpent – Book One

Book 1: Servant of the Gods series

Evan has been having some very strange dreams.

The Perth-based architect dismissed an unexpected phone call from an entrepreneur in Greece, asking him to restore his family home, as the ravings of a crank. Until, that is, the dreams begin, each more vivid than the last. A dream encounter with a mysterious character called Zeus sees him catapulted back in time to 500 years before the birth of Christ. Evan finds himself quickly embroiled in a plot to prevent the birth of Christianity, an unwilling player in an epic struggle between the old gods and the new, fighting for his life.

“So well constructed is this novel I often found myself experiencing every event along with the main characters.” Goodreads Reviewer

“One of the things I absolutely loved is that Luciana Cavallaro has clearly done her research. She so vividly describes past cultures that we very rarely read about in historical fiction that you feel like you’re really there.” Goodreads Reviewer

“I’ve read “Accursed Women” by Ms. Cavallaro, and absolutely loved her fresh, lovely writing style, so I wouldn’t miss a chance to read this one. But I could never imagine what a ride the author would take me on this time!” Amazon Reviewer

“Search for the Golden Serpent is a historical, mythological, fantasy quest on an epic scale.” Amazon Reviewer

“I highly recommend reading this novel that not only whisks you away into adventure, but it also vividly shows the mystique of ancient civilizations and religions. This novel is particularly a delight for those who love mythology and the hero’s adventure.” Amazon Reviewer

“This story is beautifully written, the scenes rich and vividly choreographed, the characters and places intricately and beautifully detailed. You get the sense you are along for the ride on this Odyssey, and you had better hang on.” Amazon Reviewer

“Luciana Cavallaro’s passion for ancient history reflects in her vivid descriptions of ancient times and its people. The high-stakes narrative moves forward with momentum and the story arcs grow and intersect in satisfying ways.” Amazon Reviewer

      So do I 🙂 I was inspired by the works of Homes and wanted to write stories where the gods play with people’s lives.
      It’s curtrently under edit and trying to get an agent for it but if no joy I will publish it as an e-book. I will keep you posted. Thanks for commenting. 🙂

    I’ve always loved Mythology and found that the alleged links – deep and archetypal – to basic human psychology are scientifically provable facts. I’ve been following the blog for a while. Will most certainly continue doing so.

      Thank you very much Ana! I also believe mythology is more than just great storytelling, it is the basis of human nature and needing to learn about themselves and the world around them.
      Thank you for your insightful comment 😀

    The fascinating thing is: I’ve drawn on mythology (Greek and Roman) in The Blacksmith, related to human potential. There are Core Mars or Venera people, to give an example. And one of the most fascinating connections to your post: There’s a character who goes by the name of Hector too 🙂 I guess this is another proof that Carl Jung knew what he was doing when he described the collective unconscious. From your posts I see you’re a highly cultivated author, which I deeply respect. God bless you!

      You are too kind Ana, thank you for the compliment. I do think mythology resonates with many people and some more than others. 🙂
      I am looking forward to reading your excerpts on your blog.
      Thank you Ana.
