I am always on the prowl for new fairytale retellings and I have always wanted to read Page’s gargoyle series so when I saw she had a new book coming out that was a retelling I was happy dancing at the opportunity to read The Last Huntsman. Hands down, The Last Huntsman is easily one of my favorite fairytale retellings, most certainly my favorite having to do with the Snow White story most definitely. This had everything I had hoped it would have, and even some things I did not expect and it was wrapped up in an easy to read, engaging package. This is not the Snow White that you know, instead we get the Huntsman who is actually an assassin with a heart of gold buried very deep inside, and a girl who can see anything through the mirror but is not an evil queen. I seriously blew through this story in one day, only stopping briefly to pretend to adult because I had to know how it would end.
I found the story to be incredibly romantic, even while only like one kiss and maybe one hug even took place, I felt the slow burn of their romance, the exchanges eye contact and subtle touches that were so chaste. I really hate insta-love (usually- unless a werewolf mate bond is involved) and this was the perfect amount of tension and character development that I needed. And yes I did just spend time talking about romance, but I am not sure I would classify this as a romance story. It whole heartedly was an action/adventure that just so happened to have a romance that made me giddy (Think The Princess Bride vibe here where the adventure was the biggest part of the book but you still rooted for the couple to get together and defeat the villain.) As a side note, there were some every dark topics in the story such as sexual assault, torture and murder yet when I was reading I did not feel like I was bogged down by the darkness or despair, instead I was caught up in the fast pace of the plot and the magical potential.
In case you can't tell, I absolutely loved The Last Huntsman, it was the perfect mix of romance, action and fairytale in a standalone story (not that I wouldn't love another book in this world with my new favorite characters). I now need to get my hands on all the other books by Page because she has made a true fan out of me!
A story based vaguely on what would happen to the Huntsman, from the story Snow White, when it is discovered that he disobeyed orders. The Huntsman is ordered to kill the princess and he can't, he is then thrust into the darkness, hiding from the emperor. Ever finds him, wounded and weak, and hides him till he is stronger. Ever has been posing as a boy, hiding from the emperor as well. She has a magic the emperor wants, and he will kill anyone to get it, even his daughter. After a few days, sparks fly between these two, and they are on the hunt together, to kill the emperor before he can get them.
I love this book, it was easy to follow without being boring. No loose ends, and no cliffhanger, but left vaguely open for a sequel.
