Book Review: Blood and Snow by RaShelle Workman
"Lips red as rubies, hair dark as night. Drink your true love's blood, become the Vampire, Snow White."
EVERY THOUSAND YEARS THE VAMPIRE QUEEN SELECTS A NEW BODY, ALWAYS THE FAIREST IN THE LAND, AND THIS TIME SHE'S CHOSEN SNOW WHITE.
Snow white lives in Salem, Massachusetts with her dad, stepmother, and her cat, Gatsby. Her entire life she's been teased for her fairy tale name, and the fact that her seven best friends happen to be guys whose names begin with the same letters as the seven dwarves.
Blood and Snow starts with the instantaneous lure with charmingly dynamic characters. The story is fun, smart, and romantic. Just the way I like it. I enjoyed Workman's writing style and our heroine's bestfriend-voice feel. Great job! There are certain parts that felt a bit inconsistent to me: the house next door to Snow is a mansion on a huge piece of land while hers is small--unless they're out in the country, but I didn't get that feel; her parents are away at St. Barts while their home has mismatched furniture as if they live on a low income. Being a novellette, there are a few elements (hottie Chace for example) that were covered only once, but since it's part of an ongoing series, I have that to look forward to hook me further. Kudos to the author!
I'm excited to read more of the Blood and Snow series!
