We start off with the ever elusive rich girl Snow White whom does run parallel in loving animals, but that is where it seems to end. She is quite snarky, and I really enjoyed her sass. We switch through past and present when dealing with this story. The author does a good job setting up for the very end. Yes, before you ask there are dwarves, however these dwarves are not very nice for the most part. Of course we have The Nameless Man aka The Huntsman. He is going through some trials himself trying to get past a few things so he can just live out his days normal. I will sadly say that him and Snow White did not have very much interaction with each other even though the whole premise was surrounding them both.
There are also quite a few other players on the board in this tale. Without spoiling the whole thing I bet you can take a guess who they are.
In all I thought the writing was fantastic and the story line very clever.
I wasn't too sure what to expect when I started this book, I've never read anything by Sarah J. Pepper before. That said, this definitely wasn't what I expected. I don't mean that in a bad way, of course, but I've read a lot of retellings before so I went in with assumptions of how this would go, and I was definitely wrong.
Snow White Lies is not your mother's Snow White. It's a contemporary, new adult, urban fantasy-esque book that turns the familiar tale we all know on its head. There's familiar characters, such as Snow herself and the dwarves, but they're twisted into a whole new story. In this book, Snow is a blogger and good lord she is sassy. I loved it. She's a strong character and I liked watching her story unfold. I was never really quite sure what directions this book was going to take, which made it engaging and hard to put down. This is a darker retelling that has gritty/dark themes throughout the book, which helped to hold my attention.
I'd definitely read more of Pepper's work based off of my experience with Snow White Lies. I think grown up fans of fairy tales will eat this one up, and another chunk of readers will pick it up for the cover art alone. Fans of urban fantasy, as well as darker stories, I think would also enjoy reading this one.
I was provided a copy in exchange for my honest review.
Nivea 'Snow' White is the young heiress of her father's empire, but also of his drug dealing secret business. After his death, she takes the reins and tries to survive under the randar of the city's villains, the Seven Dwarves and their Queen. Add a handsome, dark, mysterious guy who lets her know that he's going to kill her sooner or later and you have your Huntsman.
"You are the Queen's property until the fairest harlot whose skin is as white as snow and hair is as dark as night is sacrificed by your doing. Be warned. Lies spew from her blood-red lips, but she will give you a worthy epithet."
This is a dark, twisted retelling of Snow White, so if you think that you'll be reading just a modern version, think again. It's not a 'love and flowers' kind of read. This story had a lot of mystery, suspense and adventure, so if that's what you're looking for, this might be for you.
I probably belong in the minority here, but this book didn't work for me. I wish it had, but sadly I must have missed the mark. I was very excited when I read the blurb and thought 'A dark retelling of Snow White? Hell yes!'. When I read the prologue, I was amazed and so intrigued, because it literally starts with a bang.
"We would be no good for each other but fate didn't care. Our destinies were interwined."
Sadly, there were so much information and so many names and facts that I nearly got drowned in them. I got so confused that I didn't know who was who. I was trying to decipher what was going on. Who should I be suspicious? Who was good and who was evil? I was so confused that I really felt stupid for not being able to understand.
I'm sorry, but this was probably not my cuppa, it wasn't because the writing was bad, because I liked the flashbacks and the characters were interesting, but somehow I struggled to understand this book and I didn't enjoy it as much as I wished I would. Since there are so many positive reviews out there, I think this is a case of "It's not you, it's me."
PS: I really appreciated the personal note by the author: "I do hope you find your prince charming, even if he's a book boyfriend." Thank you! <3
