Fairy tales seem all the rage these days, but what sets this novella apart is that these ladies actually have personalities. What bothers me about traditional fairy tales is the characters are underdeveloped pawns that go about doing things with the audience not understanding any of the character' motivation (like in the movie Snow White and the Huntsman, Snow White "exists" but has no personality). But in this book, this Snow White is clever, determined, with a little bit of self-hate going on because she understands people only see her for her beauty. While Snow White's characterization was great, I definitely related more to Rose Red's character. Rose Red suffers from a bit of an inferiority complex when it comes to her sister, but she is fiercely loyal and very brave. I felt she was the emotional driver of the story, and I found myself looking forward to reading the chapters from her point of view much more than Snow White's POV. This seemed intentional because the book opens with Rose Red's POV. I was not a huge fan of the switching POVs all the time because I liked Rose Red a lot, but I understand the author's need to do this to move the plot forward. Overall a great novella with a lot of emotion, depth, and courage.

This was a very different take on the traditional fairy tale of Snow White as we know it. While it is a short story, I enjoyed the take on it so much I wished it was a bit longer as it needed more character development/ depth and background. Because it lacked such, to me, it felt a bit rushed. (or maybe that was just me craving more). A few noticeable grammatical errors were also present. Still an enjoyable quick read!

This short novel is a retelling of Snow White. The premise is that Snow White and her sister, Rose Red, live in a little town in the dark forest. Their town is special because a bunch of roses grow there. Every year there's a festival of Roses where travelers come to see the spectacle and traders come to buy the roses. As you might expect, things don't all go to plan this year and Snow White and her family end up in trouble. The magic was an interesting twist-- SPOILER: Snow White and her sister both are witches. Snow White has ice/water magic and Rose Red has fire magic. So in addition to figuring out the mystery, they have to keep the townspeople from realizing that they have these powers. The world was intriguing, with a good mix of fairy tale elements and new ones. It was a fun read that went by quickly.

Snow White and Rose Red is a vivid story of magic and intrigue that borrows elements from the Snow White tale. It's well written, with clean pretty prose that reminds me of the writing in The Hunger Games. In fact, I would argue that this story has more in common with that series than it does with the fairy tale source material. The descriptions of Rose Red's village are evocative and interesting in a way that recalls Collins's sketch of District 12. The world, however, is entirely different, with its own dynamics and rituals. The story is fun and engaging, and I like the characters (my one big gripe being that Snow White hates being beautiful a little too much). This is a quick, pleasurable read, and it's worth checking out if you like a little fairy tale magic.

I actually found I couldn't finish this one, which was a bummer. The premise was unique, and the vision was fresh. I enjoyed the development of the characters. However, the author bounced viewpoints from Rose to Snow often (which was important, and not the issue!) The editing was overly sloppy, and some parts of the story had the wrong character perspective mistakenly left. It made for quite a bit of backtracking as I read to remind myself whose eyes I was supposed to be viewing the passage through. Sadly, not being able to just flow along as the tale unfolded was too distracting, and I lost interest. Bummer, again, because the writing and creativity certainly wasn't missing with this author and this book. ***none of my reviews are paid for.

I have never read a fairy tale. That's not true. A couple years ago, I downloaded Beauty and the Beast. I loved it. That was the only one. I don't remember reading them growing up. My knowledge of fairy tales comes strictly from Disney movies. I think it's one of the reasons I am in love with the ABC show Once Upon a Time. It's awesome to see my beloved Disney characters come to life. Now, you may wonder why I would choose to read Snow White and Rose Red: The Curse of the Huntsman by Lilly Fang. Well, because I was curious about written fairy tales and well, this ebook was free on Amazon.

Not knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised by this short novel. It was different and interesting. It was also unlike anything I have read before. I loved that Snow White has a sister, Rose Red. I love that both sisters live with their mother. I love that she is teaching her daughters to be strong, self-reliant women.

I loved all the characters involved especially Rose Red and the Huntsman. Rose was a strong willed, adventurous girl whose middle name should have been Moxie, not Red. Always in her sister's shadow, she was a bit disheartened but did not fault Snow. She loved her sister. The Huntsman was everything a dark romantic hero should be. Mysterious, callous, courageous, caring, protective. There were a few twists in this story, all unexpected by me. My favorite (of course) dealing with matters of the heart. What I really enjoyed the most in this fairy tale was how the sisters helped each other. They relied and supported each other.

I know I will search out other retold fairy tales in the future. Especially if they are as well thought-out and written as Snow White and Rose Red: The Curse of the Huntsman . I really enjoyed it.
