Waiting On Wednesday (30)



Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine. For this week's Waiting On Wednesday I chose *drumroll* Snow White Sorrow by Cameron Jace

Expected Publication:October 30,2012Delayed
What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?

Sixteen year old Loki Blackstar is no Prince Charming. His mother is a ghost. His only friend is a red Cadillac that talks to him through the radio. He looks like an Angel but acts like jerk. No wonder he has been banned from Heaven, which is the least of his troubles. Loki needs a job to pay for school and support himself.

Still, Loki has a rare gift: He is a Dreamhunter. One of the few in the world who can hunt and kill immortal demons in their dreams so they never wake up again.

When Loki is sent to kill a sixteen-year-old vampire girl the locals call Snow White Sorrow, he is pulled into a magical but dangerous world. The locals believe the monster to be Snow White.

The real Snow White... living in the ruins of an ancient castle in a small town. She is described as horribly beautiful, terrifyingly enchanting, and wickedly lovely.

What he finds instead is a beautiful monster girl filled with rage and hurt, who has an epic untold story to tell of things such like why the Brothers Grimm altered the fairy tale, who the Evil Queen really is, where the mirror came from, and who possessed it.

Snow White has killed every person who has dared come near the castle where she once lived with the queen. Mysteriously, she lets Loki live.

  1. Retellings are a bit of a hit or miss with me. Haven't read any really good ones in a long time. This one has a great cover and sounds good so hopefully it works!
    My WOW

  2. Oh, no. A book you are waiting on has been delayed? I hope it's not a long delay! I look forward to hearing more about this one. I love Grimm stories, but I'm not too experienced with retellings.

  4. Delayed?!? Whaaaaa???? I added this one to my TBR as soon as I saw someone else add it on GR. I'm iffy on retellings, but I'll always give them a chance. And I really want to take a chance on this one! Halloween would have been perfect for a release date, too! WHY NO RELEASE NOW, BOOK? :P
