A Brief Summary:
Running away from a stepmother that wants to kill you is completely understandable. However, when you're the heir apparent things get a little more complicated. Meet Essie, aka Snow, she has lived most of her life on Thundra a cold mining planet. Where she spends her days stitching her drones, and fighting to earn credits. Once Dane crashes on her planet her simple life is gone, now she has to decide if she's going to face her heritage or run and hide again.
I loved this book! A brand new take on Snow White. No longer purely a damsel in distress, Essie can fight, code, and just generally take care of herself. I also enjoyed the take on prince charming. A once one dimensional character is now a fully fleshed man that you can really root for.
The fact the the mining drones were a call back to the dwarves was adorable. I particularly liked Dimwit, the call back to Dopey. Dimwit tries to be helpful but has a tendency to muddle things up. He's a super sweet comic relief character.
All in all I loved this book. It pays homage to the original, while managing to develop a story all it's own. The characters are dynamic and unique. Best of all no damsel in distress! She can handle her self beautifully and it's wonderful!
