In The Star of the Serpent, two astrologers see a very strange star while studying a beautiful night sky. After telling other people about it, they realize only they can see it. They confront a rabbi, who tells them it is a sign of the Messiah. The rabbi tells them to travel to Jerusalem to find this newborn king. While the astrologers travel to Jeruselem, the wicked King Herod is on the hunt to annihilate this new king. Will these astrologers find the Messiah in time to save him from King Herod's wrath?
This book is full of shocking and exciting turns, and it really kept me on the edge of my seat. I love the clever title and synopis of this book, but the cover in my opinion is not very attractive. Another thing I do not fancy in this book is that it is a bit confusing to read. Overall this book is very good, which is why I give it four out of five stars, and recommend it to ages 11 and up.
