From the Author
Blood and Snow is a reinvented fairy tale told from the point of view of Snow White. There are many differences between the original story and Blood and Snow. One is that the story is told in current day in the Salem, Massachusetts. Another is instead of seven dwarves there are seven hot guys. The biggest difference is that there are vampires.

-I feel like the character Snow should be a little older. Maybe eighteen, but not fifteen. It just doesn't seem to fit that well. I still think her home life and abandonment issues would have survived a slight age bump. However, it is what it is, and it's not a deal breaker by any means. (The covers are gorgeous, but they suggest an older heroine, which made Snow's age a bit of a shock at first.)
-The main character's name. It is actually Snow White. That was really hard for my brain to grasp for, like, the first two volumes. But I eventually got over it and it just became part of the character.
-Volume one, BLOOD AND SNOW, is not a whole book. It just stops. There is no wrap up or lead-up to a big cliff-hanger. Had I only purchased volume one and got to this point -I won't lie- I would have been hot-damn pissed. NOT because of the length. Because, rather, I would have wanted to know immediately what was happening in the storyline and it would have killed me to wait. So, note to future readers, buying the volume 1-4 pack is best because you will want to read them in one sitting. (Or two, as was the case with me.)
-There are some odd comma placements happening. I won't lie. But they are not spontaneous. They won't jump out at you from a dark ally with a shiv. There is a pattern, and it is really not that distracting once you get into the rythm.
Workman knows how to tell a good story. I have never been one for fairytales, but the BLOOD AND SNOW series adds enough vampire action -which I adore and could never live without- and original ideas to create a rich world with characters that readers can't help but care for. Seriously, not once did I daydream about bludgeoning a character to death. They all bring something to the plot, especially Christopher. I have a cougar crush on Hunter Christopher.
So is this worth your time? I don't know, but it was sure as hell worth mine. So much, in fact, that I'm going to purchase volume five as soon as I finish this review.
With all of the recent Snow White hype, THIS is the original spin that should have been in theaters.
1) Wished I had known B4 starting how short each segment was.
2) There are a few editor errors that made me stumble, and go back to make sence of it. (but honestly, I've always enjoyed seaching for errors...to see how many,if any I can find)
3) the "aka" 's should be kept to a minimum..."Christopher, aka Chace, aka my Hunter".......maybe once per book, would be enough.
1) Refreshing...I have a pretty good imagination…so for me its nice to find an Author who does not write in a way to suggest her readers dence...
The flow of conversation is Not often interrupted with He/She said's...and when it is, its to note the infliction..."He whispered" "I gumbled, but aloud I said…" and to me thats refreshing.
2) I've read where a few people think that alot of the scenes could have been flushed out better…….I think if it were, it would take away from the fast paste of the story.
3) Sometimes, not always, but with a book like this...I really like how the author lets the readers use some of thier own imagination with the story...to let the characters grow from book (or volume) to book...Not every person in a story needs everything told about them up front...its nice to learn new secrets as the story unfolds.
4) So glad the fist few chapters are not full of re-caps...as so often happens with a series.
5) Lastly, WOW...WOW...WOW...Classic FairyTail Story meets A Vampire Story (that already has a nice twist to it) and this series is thier Love Child…And, as if that wasnt good enough… its fast paced, page turning, dramaticlly funny,sexy, hot and steamy passion (that's still suitable for the average 16, 17 year old (at least in my opinion)).
!!!LOVED IT...CANT WAIT FOR THE NEXT INSTALLMENT!!!
