Fairies can be downright dangerous In the Serpent's Coils marks the debut of Hallowmere a dark edgy historical fantasy series that teens won't be able t In the Serpent s Coils was a scary fairy story set in post Civil War America We meet the main character Corinne as she wakes up in her uncle s house with no idea how she got there Soon she is told her mother died of a fever that almost claimed her own life leaving her an orphan since her father was lost in the battle at Petersburg Corinne s Uncle William is stern and after she defies his strict rules too many times he packs her off to Falston Manor a girls reform school Falston is everything her life in Maryland with her parents was not The teachers are stict the food is bad and the girls are locked into their rooms when they aren t in classes The book slows here for awhile despite Corrine s numerous nightmares filled with fairies and witches and her discovery of love letters a monk sent to a nun in the 1300s But the plot picks up again Corinne is trapped at this harsh boarding school She believes the fairies or Fey to be her friends and the witches and their captain her enemies But among the students and teachers who is there to trust While this book isn t completely original it is enjoyable and often compelling The story is like a nightmare in many ways with the prison like Falston Manor mysterious cloaked figures that are always there always watching and sinister adults who don t believe you re in danger I wouldn t call this book fast paced but it was good I couldn t help comparing it to A Great and Terrible Beauty because the stories are similar a brooding boarding school a Victorian era setting disturbing magical goings on and a band of misfit girls who join together Libba Bray s A Great and Terrible Beauty is the better novel but I still reccomend this first installment in the Hallowmere series

Live at Falston Manor Corrine thinks she's escaped the danger stalking her Instead the dreams grow stronger just as girls begin disappearing from school In the Serpent s Coils is the first book of the Hallowmere series my most recent forray into fantasy novels with truly cheesy cover art Although I read Tiffany Trent s debut in record time I had the feeling throughout that I d somehow traveled this road before Maybe it s just that when you get stuck on a specific genre and I ll admit I ve read uite a few books along this same vein lately they all seem to run together But this book reminded me so strongly of Libba Bray s Gemma Doyle books it was sometimes confusingIn this introduction to the Hallowmere series we meet the young heroine Corrine The novel opens with Corrine awakening from the augue swamp fever in post Civil War Washington DC Her father never returned from serving the Union army and her battlefield nurse mother has died of the same disease that sickened Corrine Orphaned she is sent to live with her estranged uncle William who informs the 16 year old that he has no use or affection for children and basically to stay out of his way Corrine is a curious and bright girl so she uickly gets herself into trouble by meddling in Uncle Williams affairs and losing a precious artifact As punishment she is promptly sent away to a reformatory school for young ladies south of the Mason Dixon line More prison than school her new home is filled with less than friendly classmates strange teachers and haunting visions and dreams that begin almost immediately upon her arrival Corrine spends this first book of the series learning about the history of the war with the Fae her role in the battle against the unhallowed and of the Fairy Prince s strange fascination with her Overall I enjoyed the book but I wouldn t call it a must read I plan to read the rest of the series because I happen to have them on hand but I m not BURNING to know what happens next I d call In the Serpent s Coils a pleasant if somewhat predictable journey over familiar literary territory Fans of Libba Bray or Melissa Marr s Wicked Lovely series will enjoy Trent s take on the friends under the hill and if nothing else it s a uick read that doesn t reuire a lot of brainpower Sometimes that s the formula for the perfect literary escape
