Hallowmere #2: By Venom’s Sweet Sting, by Tiffany Trent (Mirrorstone, 2007)

With Falston School destroyed, and two of the legendary rathstones in the hands of the vampiric Unhallowed Fey, the Council of Elaphe decides to take the fight to the Fey. And so Corrine, Ilona and Christina, as well as their teachers and allies, travel to Scotland, where they can continue their studies and learn more about their enemies. As Corrine explores her powers, the Fey find new ways of striking at her, on sea, on land, and in her dreams. Ultimately, she’ll have to brave the heart of the Fey and face their Prince in a desperate attempt to balance things out. Tiffany Trent continues the Hallowmere series in this intriguing, atmospheric, dark fairy tale set on the high seas and in the moody moors of Scotland. My only complaint is that just when it gets good, it’s over and I can hardly wait for the next installment.
