"... the story does more very quickly, and is very dark and twisted. The characters are deep and enchanting, and I do hope to read the rest of the books that will be forthcoming. This fairy tale is one that will keep readers up at night, enthralled in the tale, just as I was." 4.5 stars, Top Pick, Night Owl Reviews Dec 2013
From the Author
I'm so excited to have The Dark Huntsman out and available for readers. Twisting a fairy tale is always a challenge, you have to pick and choose which elements to save and which to throw out. I decided to keep the essence of the Snow White character's penchant for walking into situations someone else might stay out of. Trina Mac Elvy is struggling with learning how to be a fighter, but she's still young and prone to mistakes. She wants to trust Logan-common sense tells her not to, but her heart is increasingly telling her to take the risk.

The reader is immediately drawn into Logan’s story from the first sentence with the fact he is trying to remember where he was. He’s cold, aching, the light hurts his eyes, and he doesn’t know what he is doing. From there on Logan never stops hurting or aching except when he is knocked off his feet when he comes across the naked witch the evil queen has sent him to kill.
Trina MacElvys, the heroine, a young witch with the goal of saving her family line, is not match for the full blooded faerie, Logan, who instead of killing her carries her off. Trina’s wild ride begins with Logan’s abduction and never ends throughout the book. In some cases she is too inexperienced in the life of sorcery which puts both she and Logan in trouble.
The rest of the cast of characters is composed of faeries of various sizes, trolls, and gnomes. They all are involved in Logan’s and Trina’s pursuit of finding meaning in life and love. The surprise is how the love comes about. To find that out you have to read this sizzling romance.
Weaving the story of snow white with one of political intrigue, and two people who refuse to fall for each other kicking and screaming all the way into doing just that made for fun reading. I finished the book, and promptly bought book two.
