Review: Shadows on Snow by Starla Huchton
About the Book: 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.
Review: I was very interested to read this book when it was first introduced because I was curious about the idea of a “flipped fairytale”. What captivated me the most about this story was the writing; it is very descriptive and allows you to picture exactly what it being portrayed. The author has a wonderful plot being set in motion when she introduces the little boy in the barn taking care of the horses. It isn’t just any little boy…or a little boy at all. I enjoyed reading about Raelynn and her sisters. The family bond that they share is just absolutely amazing. I did find that the Prince was a little too love-stricken for my taste but the story is based on a heroine instead of a hero.
I must admit that this book took my mind for a spin! It was just MAGICAL. I recommend this book to all of my club members. Again, this is a story portrayed from Raelynn’s point of view; therefore, men may not enjoy it nearly as much as women. I am looking forward to the next in Starla’s series.
