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.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

With the skill of Rumpelstiltskin himself Starla Huchton spins the straw of the original Snow White story into epic fantasy gold. I haven’t plowed through a book like this in a good while, even reading one handed at times! (While cooking you pervs!)


“They are calls to action, meant to send the chosen on journeys of great importance.”
 

A gender bending twist on Snow White, it really has aspects from several classic tales and does a good job laying down some foundation for more stories in the same world. If that proves to be the plan I know I’ll be first in line to read any others that come along!

While a good chunk of this book would easily pass for squeaky clean YA, there is an underlying theme that alludes towards some dark and adult aspects. Read it first before deciding if it’s appropriate for your youngster.


“Soon I would either be dead, or a princess. I wasn’t sure which one terrified me more.”
 

Another theme that runs through the story is one of female empowerment. The seven sisters, especially Rae kick butt and take names with the best of them while putting the Prince and the boys club in their place!

Great story with a lot of heart, action, adventure, and strong heroines that’s good for most ages!

A simple man with complex tastes. He's able to leap genres in a single bound, enjoying a wide variety of books. A lover of multiple fandoms he's always willing to Boldy Go hunting Horcruxes as long as The Force is with him. And for some reason decided that doing this bio in the third person sounded better. But in all seriousness, I promote books and authors that interest me. I love covers and blurbs that catch my eye. And love to get lost in a forest of words.
