As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she's destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the hart that could change the fate of everything ... including Snow's return to the world she once knew."



Way i am waiting.... 


I recently read "Dorothy must die" by this author and it was great!
Paige really manages to put a new and interesting and wonderful spin on well known and loved stories. 

I personally not the biggest fan of Snow white -the original or almost all retellings, the only expectation of that rule was "Stitching snow" which i enjoyed because of its very unique writing and story overall and the great spin the author took to the story. 

I am just excited to see what this first book in a new series brings, and since it is said to be a "breathtaking first volume" where "the story of how Snow becomes a villain, a queen and ultimately a hero" begins, i just really, really want to see what kind of great spin Paige can bring to this fairytale. 

I also kind of always love books where the good guy becomes a villain. And then a hero. I am a sucker for that book trope. Usually always love it and basically have to read every book that states that. 

So i can not wait!
