Review: Serpent Priestess of the Annunaki by Katrina Sisowath
ABOUT THE BOOK: The Annunaki on Nibiru lack precious metals, stones and minerals, which they desire, food on Nibiru is also running low. Their solution: establish a colony on a distant planet teeming with wildlife and vegetation. When the Annunaki discover they are ill equipped to labor under the harsh conditions found on Earth, they create a workforce called humans, a hybrid manufactured from their DNA and a species known as hominid.
The Serpent Priestess Ninkha and her husband Lord Enki are charged with this task, battling not only the challenges faced adjusting to life on Earth, but Enki’s brother, Enlil, as well. Will the humans live as Enki and Ninkha envisioned–able to learn, create and above all, reason? Or will they subjugate themselves to Enlil and his rule willingly?
At stake is the future of the Priestesses of Damuth, who, along with their serpents, service the Annunaki with their own blood, providing those who partake of the cocktail of blood and venom the ultimate in achieving a higher state of consciousness, along with youth, vigour and longevity. If Enlil, whose disdain of them is well-known, wins, what will happen to them?
To protect themselves and their descendants they form the ‘Dragon Court’, but is it enough? Serpent Priestesses or Witches, Gods or Demons, Aliens or Ancestors, Oppressors or Creators? Perhaps all of the above…………..
REVIEW: This story is Book One of the Dragon Court series. Priestess Ninkha and Lord Enki are married in Nibiru and then immediately rushed to a distant planet on a mission of discovery. With both being of royal families and the purest longevity, they are sent to this planet for one sole reason. The Annunaki race will soon whither on Nibiru due to lack of resources and minerals needed to sustain their race; their urgency to find workers that can tolerate the atmosphere and conditions of the new planet must be found. Every Annunaki is bonded with a dragon of the opposite sex when they are born, so Priestess Ninkha and Lord Enki travel to this planet with their bonded dragons in hopes to be the savors of the Annunaki people. When they arrive, they begin their research immediately…one discovery leading to another. Before they realize the potential damage that they have caused, they have created things that have never been imagined. Could their new creations lead to unwanted warfare or will they succeed in discovering their original desires of the Annunaki people?
My favorite character is the Serpent Priestess Ninkha. She is characterized as a strong-willed, courageous and desired woman who shows the gifts of her people with utmost respect. Her ability to move worlds with her actions is uncanny and ultimately captivated my attention. My least favorite character is Lord Enlil. While he was never provided a fair chance like his brother, the evil that spreads through his body, mind and soul can not be unnoticed. Some of his actions broke my heart and made me despise his character. The realization that this author was able to draw this much emotion from me, made me respect the story as the chapters passed. I recommend this story to those who enjoy Science-Fiction and Fantasy novels. There are definitely several of creative and original ideas that are mentioned. The whole world along with the descriptions entailed by the author is utterly amazing! The names are a little too much to bear at first, but the story does pick up which allows the reader to follow without incomprehension. I rate this book with five stars because it is very well-written, interesting, highly-creative, and original. I can’t wait to read the next in the series called The Doom of Undal.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Katrina Sisowath ,(1979–) British-American, born in Frankfurt, Germany. Grew up in South-east Asia and Europe, now lives in England. Mother of 2.5 children (dog thinks he’s human), experienced in making brownies.
On a personal level, Katrina is an avid book reader and loves mythology, history (preferably together), ancient civilizations and anything to do with occult ideologies and practices, combining them to create a blend of dark mythological fantasy called ‘mythdark’. Mages, Serpent Priestesses and the ‘real’ Gods, aka the ANNUNAKI(the prototypes for those we know today in the form of Greek, Roman, Indian and even the Biblical characters) are all found in the Dragon Court books.
