  1. Barry Chant, author and teacher.

    Ian Miller’s novel Serpent Bearer, the second in The Emissary of the Oppressed trilogy is a pleasure to read. It combines fantasy, science, theology, human interest and cosmic conflict all in one captivating package. It is a well-written, exciting tale with plenty of gripping adventure, intriguing suspense and fast-moving action in a world whose qualities will fire your imagination. The characters reflect real-life passion, courage and frailty and the issues are universal. The ending will leave you anxiously looking for volume three.

  2. Lesley Turner, Author of Halfway to Justice and The Power of Forgiveness.

    Wow! I was eagerly looking forward to reading this book and was not disappointed.  It is a well-written, fast-paced, action packed page turner.  Serpent Bearer has everything you are looking for and more in a sci-fi/fantasy. Impressive.

  3. Morton Benning, author of Playing God and The Tale of Alathimble Spaide

    Serpent Bearer is a gripping continuation of Ian Miller’s trilogy. Where the first was a wonder-filled journey into a strange land, this second instalment is an infiltration behind enemy lines, and a desperate high-stakes rescue mission.
