From Doug George-Kanentiio, editor, columnist and author from the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation:
“Crown of Serpents is a compelling novel deeply rooted in the history of the Six Nations Iroquois. It takes place in contemporary times with fully developed characters and a powerful narrative; its author is well versed in the complexity of modern Iroquois life. Far more than a simple mystery the book follows the path of Tony Hillerman’s Navajo based novels by providing the reader with remarkable insights into the culture and traditions of the most influential Native nation east of the Mississippi.”

From Dennis Money, Chairman, Seneca White Deer, Inc., Canandaigua, NY
“Karpovage crafts a story rich in intrigue, history, folklore, and the mystery of the white deer. His myriad of subplots and personalities keeps the reader entranced and on edge, begging for more.”
