Review:Hallowmere: In the Serpent's Coils by Tiffany Trent

Review of In the Serpent's Coils by Tiffany Trent

Corrine's parents both died in the Civil War. Now during the Reconstruction, Corrine somehow finds herself sent to Falston Manor-a girl's school. She also begins dreaming disturbing things. Before Corrine even realizes it she is caught up in a supernatural mystery-one that could take her friends.....and her own.....life.

I REALLY liked this book. I hadn't heard about them until a publicist at Mirrorstone pointed them out to me.As all of my faithful readers know, I am a real big fan of historical fiction. I am also a big fan of fantasy's and mysteries. So this book was like a marriage of all 3 subjects.

Ms. Trent is a wonderful writer-very vivid-but not to the point where you forget what a character was doing. Being a history Buff-I found the book to be very accurate but without loosing the feel of a mystic.

In Conclusion: A wonderful read for anyone-there's a little bit of everything in it and it has a wonderful cliff-hanger. I don't know if I will be reviewing the next 3 books of the series(and the ones succeeding those 3) but......I would LOVE to. This is a wonderful book and I encourage everyone to go and pick a copy up.


Now....................many of you are probably like "why is this review on a vampire blog? isn't this book about fairies?"

Spoilers ahead-don't go on if you don't want to be in on a major plot point



The Fey (or fairies) learned that by drinking human blood they could be immortal................sounds pretty vampirish to me. When the book says Fairies-it doesn't mean Tinkerbell- these are not nice fairies. and I figured, if you like vamps you must like other supernatural things-so thats why this is uphere
