Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good read In the Serpent's Coils definitely was not my favourite book. Not only that, I would never recommend this book to anyone else because of the lack of substance in the story and the severely undesired content contained. Things like witchcraft taken to a lot more of an extreme than Harry Potter made me feel repulsed and truly disgusted. In addition, the overall story had no substantial plot or meaning to it, and was utterly deceptive to the point of being frustrating. The author took the concept of foreshadowing and mystery to such an extreme that throughout a good 90% of the book, I had absolutely no idea what was going on. That being said, In the Serpent's Coils wasn't entirely a waste. There were some good parts that are definietly worthy of note, including the author's skill in eloquency, and the amount of effort evidently put into writing the book. Despite the sketchy content, there were parts that had me hooked and simply would not allow me to tear my eyes from the page. Having noted that, I still would not recommend this book to teens and tweens and would suggest a certain amount of discretion for parents planning to buy this book for their kids. I would give this book 2 out of 5 stars.
