Review: Snow White Lies by Sarah J Pepper
ABOUT THE BOOK: “Evil poisons everyone. Period. Our mouths water when we sink our teeth into what we have always craved. Surrendering to our desires by biting off a delectable piece of the forbidden fruit is nothing more than a meager confession: Poison tastes sinfully sweet. #SnowWhiteLies”—Confessions of the Big Apple Debutante, by blogger Miss Snow White.
REVIEW: Snow White Lies is twisted. It is dark and immensely rewarding. When I first saw what this story was going to be about, I couldn’t wait to read it. Miss (Snow) White, is the heir to a substantially large company called White Industries. Her income doesn’t stop there though! She has other companies that make even more than White Industries does, allowing her to prosper as the most well-known face in the world who has connections with everyone, even the Seven. The Seven are a band of evil, corrupt, and malicious group of dwarves who work for the Queen. They have given their servitude and found an unnamed man who fits the bill of a perfect Harlot’s Assassin AKA the Huntsman, the number one target being Snow White. How many times can she escape the Queen and the Seven? What deeds must be done before she can no longer claim innocent anymore? My favorite character in this twisted novel is the Huntsman. He is driven by the Seven to do their dirty work, mainly assassinations and he is quite good at it. Every kill darkens his soul; however, he can’t escape the past with memories of a red-headed woman. This was his first kill, the one that bound him to the Seven for eternity. Throughout the decades, he has remained as vigilant and precise with his promise to extract his revenge. I also loved several other characters, including Miss Snow White herself since she portrays a great stride of independence. She is smart, devious and careful with her planning, even though the world may see her as a wealthy snob with no regard for anyone else. I can’t forget to mention that she is the world’s biggest smart-ass to boot. When death comes knocking on her door, she is torn between fear and passion. Fear for her life because she hasn’t yet accomplished her dire goal and passion for the one that was sent to bring her limp corpse back to the jealous Queen. In my opinion, Snow White Lies is a fantastic read. I recommend this story to those who enjoy reading mystery and paranormal suspense. I really enjoy how this author took the original Snow White fairy tale and warped it into her own intriguing version. I will look forward to more written by this author and will have to go back and read the other two in the series called Twisted Fairytale Confessions.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: I specialize in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn’t only filled with hugs, kisses, bunnies, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn’t always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn’t mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?
Sarah J. Pepper lives in South Dakota with her real-life prince charming. At a young age, she fell for paranormal books and now incorporates that genre with romance that thrives in the hearts of us all. When she’s not storytelling, she’s most likely biking, hoarding chocolate, or taking a bubble bath.
