I should give it four stars if just because Snow White, in this fairy tale, is not some helpless princess waiting to be rescued by Prince Charming. She is strong, fearless and pretty much ready to take anything on to reach help and avenge her father's death. When she learns that her childhood friend, William, and his father, an ally of her father's, managed to escape when Ravenna, the evil queen, took over the land, she breaks away from the dungeon where she has been locked up in order to reach them.
Eric, the Huntsman, has been struck by tragedy and is led to the Dark Forest to kill Snow White by an impossible promise. His journey is one of the better parts of this book- regaining his pride and strength after all that mattered to him had been taken away and he had become a self-destructive drunk.
I don't want to give away too many spoilers.
Will Eric become Snow White's true love? Or will that fall to her childhood friend, William? Will she escape or will Queen Ravenna have her heart cut from her chest, cementing Ravenna's eternal youth and power? Will she be able to win back her Father's kingdom, destroying Ravenna's evil hold over everyone?
This is no Disney fairy tale. There is lots of bloody violence and dark magic. There is also love, valor and true courage portrayed here.
My biggest disappointment with this book is that there was a lack of character development. Snow White's character was fairly well developed, as one would expect- but Eric had so much more potential and I wanted to see more of William.Read more ›
The novelization offers some background information on Ravenna and her brother Finn -- apparently her coup against Snow's father was in retaliation for his attack on her family. Interestingly enough in the film there is no sense that Snow's father was guilty of this crime, no concept of a blood-feud, but it does add an interesting contextual shade to the Snow/Ravenna relationship. The novelization also (thankfully) white-washes at the least the incestuous overtones between Ravenna and her brother Finn, explaining away their almost "mystically" close relationship as a result of their mother's powerful curse.Read more ›
