ARC Review: Serpents by Logan Fox. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Serpents by Logan Fox

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I tried to forget about them, but they never forgot about me.

The first day I arrive in Cinderhart, my innocent stroll through the woods is interrupted by a gruesome murder.

I see everything, including the savage boys who commit the crime.

Then they see me.

I run but they catch me, torture me, and vow to kill me if I breathe a word about what I saw.

Now their evil smirks torment my every waking moment.

The feel of their hands constantly ghosts over my skin

And their devilish eyes haunt my dreams.

I’m desperate to move on, to stop living in fear.

I force myself to forget about them, and our dark secret.

It works for a while.


Until I see them again.

Knox, Mason, Silas.

The Serpents of Cinderhart Academy.

They stalk the halls of my new school, untouchable overlords.

They’re worshipped like divine beings, yet everyone fears their wrath.

I’m trapped inside Cinderhart Academy’s walls with them. At their mercy.

But I’m not the same girl they tormented in the woods.

I have nothing left to lose.

If they keep forcing me into their twisted games, I’m going to play to win.


Dark and Disturbing!

The heroine: Nim – After traveling with her parents to a friends mansion for their college reunion, Nim gets lost in the nearby woods and sees something she shouldn’t. The three young men involved, scare her into staying silent.

The Hero(es): Knox, Mason & Silas – They are known as the Serpents of Cinderhart Academy. They rule the school and nobody will cross them, especially not a girl who shouldn’t even be attending the prestigious and secretive school.

The story: Nim’s life gets crazy after the trip and she has more to contend with than what she saw that day. She is working at a club called Purgatory (see “Heaven” by Darcy Rose and “Hell” by J.L. Beck & C. Halllman), when she gets word that she got into college with full tuition paid at Cinderhart Academy, the school her parents attended when they met.

The Serpents have secrets and murder is just one of them. They all find themselves attracted to Nim but they are determined to make her life miserable. This is an extremely dark new adult bully romance and there are a lot of triggers in this book which many won’t like. I generally like dark books but there were a few scenes in this book that I found disturbing. Though despite that all, I can’t wait to see what happens next.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.

  1. Sounds like a very interesting dark romance here. I like bully romance, but sometimes it can be really intense. Will look into this one when I am in the right mood for it.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it.

    • I liked it and plan to read the next book. Though there were disturbing parts like dubious/non-con and one guy slapped the heroine more than once. I didn’t like that at all, but I want to find out if these guys somehow redeem themselves. I am not sure they can.
