Summary

Once upon a time, a dark evil crept into my kingdom, stealing my loved ones and the happy life I knew. The world turned against me, and I swore to become stronger, to keep myself safe.

Once upon a time, there was a handsome prince, hair dark as ebony, skin as pure as the freshly driven snow, and I became the only one who stood between him and death.

Once upon a time, our stories intertwined, and now, healing my heart may be the only way to save us all from the evil that threatens to destroy what little we have left.

My Review

5/5 Stars

This is the most brilliant rewrite of Snow White I have ever come across.

I never thought about what would happen if the genders were swapped, but this was awesomely different than anything I could’ve imagined. I think my favorite part about this was that it wasn’t a love at first sight retelling but instead a real relationship formed between the Prince and Rae.

This story is studded with tons of interesting aspects like witches, magic, and love. This is definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of fairytales.

Also, the narration was wonderfully done. The narrator was able to create a wide range of voices that made it easy to distinguish between characters.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
