Mirror, mirror… Steady-paced and affecting… Loved this retelling of Snow White. Okay, I’m not trying to write a line, that’s just how I felt about book.
Blurb (in my words)–
The Crystal Casket is second book in series ‘Cursed Fairy Tale’. It is standalone book and can be read in any order.
As everyone knows, once upon a time, there was beautiful princess named ‘Snow’, beautiful white as snow; an evil stepmother who locked her in the prison of castle. She ran away from castle when she discovered evil intention of stepmother and took shelter in the house of seven dwarfs. That’s it… here ends the similarity.
In this retelling, Snow is princess of Fae kingdom and she is possessed by an uncontrollable demon. She is locked in prison by her father and stepmother. Step mother is evil, of course, but living in a fancy of being hero of the kingdom, wants to save it from princess, and wants to kill her. Snow runs away from castle in hope of getting rid of her demon and queen with a wish to live. During her runaway she meets horseman and makes deal with him which is going to change everything. Will she able to get rid of her demon or find out a way to control it? What happens when her stepmother finds out her whereabouts? Is she going to survive from her demon and stepmother?
There’s also a poisonous comb, poisonous apple, a prince, and spirits. But everything in author’s style.
