    It was kind of boring There was nothing terrible about this book but like the snow and ice imagery so prevalent throughout the book it left me cold This book portrays itself as a feminist fantasy modeled after Frozen and The Bloody Chamber I have not watched Frozen and I don't know what The Bloody Chamber is What it did remind me of was Snow White and the Huntsman with a magical twist We get to see things fro

    Like no fairytale retelling I have read beforeSnow White is my least favourite fairytale Where other people see beauty and purity I see simplicity and oppressiveness So it’s a good thing Melissa Bashardoust has written this feminist retelling of it in which powerful women are not solely represented as villainous characters and where choices truly can be madeI hope you’ve noticed how many original fairy tal

    As many of you may know I’m a huge fan of subersive retellings A retelling focusing on Snow White and her stepmother always sounded fabulous to me especially with feminist themes And thank goodness it didn’t disappoint This is really all I want out of fantasy; developed characters interesting subversions of done before tropes and sapphic girlsIn terms of retellings this is one of the imaginative ones I

Frozen meets The Bloody Chamber in this feminist fantasy reimagining of the Snow White fairytaleSixteen year old Mina is motherless her magician father is vicious and her silent heart has never beat with love for anyone has never beat at all in fact but she’d always thought that fact normal She never guessed that her father cut out her heart and replaced it with one of glass When she moves to Whitespring Castle and sees its king for the first time Mina forms a plan win the king’s. This was an entirely magical book of 1 glass 2 snow 3 epic women and 4 extremely bad hair days Which is relatable honestly because I put my foot down when these fairy tales can just have wonderful ueens smiting galaxies and never getting so angry at their hair they just want to cut it all off 1010 for hair relatability BUT ACTUALLY this book is about than hair In fact it s not about hair shut up Cait why do you even do this It s a Snow White retelling that has some amazingly original plot twists to the old and it was GOOD I was a bit lulled to sleep with the lack of plot but I was soooo impressed with all the epic girlpower and how it really really zoned in on family loveFAMILY LOVE IS GREAT I love my family too I did not sell them online last week so I could buy books I did notSMOL LIST OF EXCITING THINGS ABOUT THIS BOOK it is a ueer retelling so yas for ff romance the stepmother and princess do not mindlessly loathe each other their relationship is complex and ends up falling into direness but it s actually about a motherdaughter relationship that s rocky but still full of love the way the old Snow White story was incorporated was great features fun magic like people with hearts made out of glass and girls created from snow gorgeous map basically full cast of grand women not all white tooSMOL LIST OF DISAPPOINTMENTS there s very little world buildingactually none there is like no food no one eats around here i m hungry the king was hugely creepy and ughgughg it was a seriously slowIt s also VERY character driven so don t expect a wild frolic in blood and steel with dwarves There are actually now dwarves Or apples IDK either mate but I m glad it deviated a lot from Snow White 01 because this made it so much engaging I actually did struggle a lot with how plotless it was for the first 50% All that seemed to be happening was the king was fluttering over his daughter Lynet and telling her how much like her mother she looked and how much he loved her for itwhich is SUPER CREEPY MATE BACK OFF It didn t go into dubious territory however I just hated the king And Lynet was Too Precious Too Fragile to do anything so she was a bit of a passive character to read about She wanted to She just was like protected with 54 rolls of bubblewrap If bubblewrap had been inventedBut the themes of friendship and family were bestttt And I loved Lynet s growing relationship with the local surgeon girl Nadia They were super sweetI also found the book really just downright magical It felt inspiring to read like all the magical things happening just made me super glad fairy tales exist 3ALL IN ALL Definitely a lovely retelling with admirable women and great magical catastrophes Don t do drugs kids don t do magic don t eat bad fruit It was a little too slow paced and rambly for me And I wished there was world building But I still liked it

Heart with her beauty become ueen and finally know love The only catch is that she’ll have to become a stepmotherFifteen year old Lynet looks just like her late mother and one day she discovers why a magician created her out of snow in the dead ueen’s image at her father’s order But despite being the dead ueen made flesh Lynet would rather be like her fierce and regal stepmother Mina She gets her wish when her father makes Lynet ueen of the southern territories displacing Mina N. I received an early copy of this book from Netgalley but that does not change my feelings on the book overall I went into this book with little to no actual plot knowledge I knew it was a retelling of Snow White I knew it was being marketed as having feminist elements and I had an inkling that the Snow White character would be ueer These things are all accurate to the story but they in no way to justice to the plot characters and heart of this bookLynet and Mina are remarkable characters Princess Lynet has been forced every day to grow up an exact copy of the mother who died before they ever met Mina has been an outsider her entire life first in the village where she grew up and then in Whitespring where she meets a King and hatches a plan to at least be respected even if she could never be loved Their relationship together is the driving force of every element of the story The depth with which the motherdaughter relationship of the Snow White and the Evil ueen is dealt with is compelling and occasionally heart wrenchingOn both a story level and a meta level Lynet and Mina are characters whose ability to define themselves on their own terms has been taken away On a story level their fathers both manipulate and control their daughters to become who they are expected to be But on a meta level Lynet and Mina have become archetypes without any control they are the Princess and the Evil Stepmother But neither of them is willing to accept any of these definitions that have been put on them any longer The story is deeply about agency and about self definition about relationships and the power to control your own connections to others in your life Is is about especially the viability of female relationships and about how even with the men in their lives trying to control how they relate to one another the connection between these women has the power to go beyond that controlI could honestly gush all day about how excellent and complex the motherdaughter relationships in this book are but I ll try to talk about other stuff now Suffice it to say I sobbed through the final paragraph of this book because it just brought everything I ve already explained to a conclusion incredibly wellThe other best part of this book in my opinion is the subplot of Lynet having a crush on another girl Lynet spends a lot of the book confused about her feelings towards Nadia the new surgeon in the castle This is absolutely a subplot not central to the story but I thought it was handled remarkably well and I loved the twists they went through together throughout the book I also thought that the power imbalance between them was handled in a way that helped make their relationship much stronger as the story went on Beyond that though they aren t named or in than one scene there is a very small scene with a wlw couple where they are clearly in a relationship in a public place and there is no mentioned homophobia or feeling that they are anything less than accepted by the community at largeMy only real problem with this book came with the pacing There is a lot about this book that feels slow and peaceful which I enjoyed a ton So weirdly my complaint isn t that this book needed to be faster but that it could have taken a bit time with certain plot lines I think there should have been periods of time that were allowed to go slowly especially later on in the story I know that the plot has to constantly keep moving but I think if those moments had been stretched out some of the reveals would have had impact Other than that I thought this book was incredibly atmospheric and magical in a much understated wayThis book was magical complex romantic and fascinating It was driven by female characters taking control of their stories and destinies and I absolutely loved it Seriously this book is not to be missed
