A White So Red by Krystle Jones

A White So Red by Krystle Jones
A retelling of a classic fairytale (Rated PG-13)
(Five Prince Worthy Heart Flutters)
Book Summary
Seventeen-year-old Snow’s life changed forever the night her stepmother, the Queen, sent her huntsman to cut out her heart. Fleeing for her life, Snow runs to the Silver Forest, a place as dangerous as it is enchanting, and begins an adventure she could never have dreamed.

With no one at her side but a rowdy band of carnivorous dwarves and an arrogant, rogue prince who’s too handsome for his own good, Snow must confront the challenge that’s been laid before her: Kill the Queen, and take back the kingdom that should have been hers.
But if she is to succeed, Snow will have to tap into a powerful, ancient form of magic, one that may have been sleeping inside her all along.

My Review
Does this remind you of the movie Snow White and the Huntsman?  Yeah, only because it’s a retelling of the same classic fairytale.  Other than that, the resemblance dies.  This story beats on its own with twist and character traits of Snow, the Queen, the Huntsman and the Prince which differ than other retellings.
This story takes the classic tale and adds true magic to it.  Making it the magical fairytale it was always meant to be.  The dwarves weren’t your goofy or “grumpy” bunch that sang in the woods and wanted nothing for the best for Snow White.  Save that for Disney.  This isn’t.  This tale is darker yet it’s remains firmly YA.

Romance is not the main focus of the story.  However, romance is there and most importantly, it’s there when needed.
Overall, this story is well worth a read.  Enjoy.  I know I did.
