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
