“Do you really believe people can go inside this thing? How would that even work?” But as Emmet, carrying the Tólfandlit, brushed against Nomi, who had her finger on the scroll’s green serpent symbol, suddenly the siblings were falling through a gaping hole in the floor. First there was only wind and darkness . . . but then came a soft orange glow.
Join Emmet and Nomi as they are pulled into an ancient quest where they are called to exercise more courage and faith than they ever could imagine—unlocking secret riddles and following the path of the Serpent Slayer.
The Serpent Slayer and Scroll of Riddles is a time travel adventure with a twist—middle graders will discover biblical, theological themes as they travel through God's Word. By placing the characters into Bible events, Champ Thornton and Andrew Naselli show the Bible is far from being a boring book full of instructions and reveal life-changing truths readers will never forget.
