Five strangers are drawn together from their individually threatened lives. The 'Otherworlders' are quested by Divine Intervention to seek and destroy the source of an instability that may destroy the very world they've come to: post-cataclysmic Bu'Kre'Nunkt.
While they search for clues they must learn to adapt, survive, and deal with the culture clash of each other.
This book is the first in the series chronicling the adventures of the Dhuras Protectorate. As this "Insidious Epic" begins, the Otherworlders navigate a magically possessed topiary garden, several miles of giant-insect-ridden farmland, and the sprawling city at its center.

[Source: Amazon.com By littlevoice] As explained in the preface, Micah Holmes's novel `Tyme and Yon Serpent: Serpent's Tail' is based on an obscure Role Playing Game. If you're not an RPG player, don't let this put you off. Holmes consciously and gleefully borrows from a wide range of fantasy tropes and famous works to create this fast-paced homage to the genre. Seasoned fantasy fans will spot the sly take on the footnotes in `Jonathon Strange & Mr Norrell', a nod towards `The NeverEnding Story', a wink at Gollum from `The Lord of the Rings', a Terry Pratchett reference, and probably many more that I'm not even aware of. There is magic. There is sword play. There are even zombies. This is a fun read aimed squarely at fantasy aficionados which could easily have YA crossover appeal.
