{Synopsis} –What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?

Sixteen year old Loki Blackstar is no Prince Charming. His mother is a ghost. His only friend is a red Cadillac that sings to him through the radio. He looks like an Angel but acts like jerk. No wonder he has been banned from Heaven, which is the least of his troubles. Loki needs a job to pay for school and support himself.

Still, Loki has a rare gift: He is a Dreamhunter. One of the few in the world who can hunt and kill immortal demons in their dreams so they never wake up again.

When Loki is sent to kill a sixteen-year-old vampire girl the locals call Snow White Sorrow, he is pulled into a magical but dangerous world. The locals believe the monster to be Snow White.

The real Snow White… living in the ruins of an ancient castle in a small town. She is described as horribly beautiful, terrifyingly enchanting, and wickedly lovely.

What he finds instead is a beautiful monster girl filled with rage and hurt, who has an epic untold story to tell of things such like why the Brothers Grimm altered the fairy tale, who the Evil Queen really is, where the mirror came from, and who possessed it.

Snow White has killed every person who has dared come near the castle where she once lived with the queen. Mysteriously, she lets Loki live, and whispers two words in his ears; two words that will change his life forever.

{My Thoughts} – The main character in this book is Loki Blackstar. He is a half – angel that has been banned from heaven. He is a fascinating character because he is brought back to the ordinary world after being shadowed and left with no recollection of who he is or his past. His main goal throughout the book is to kill vampires in order to be accepted back into heaven which he has been lead to believe is his home. However, when he is unable to meet the quota of ninety-nine dead vampires by his sixteenth birthday he is then approached with a solution to his problems. The solution is that he should kill Snow White the Princess of Sorrow and her death will equal that of his goal. He accepts this quest which leads him down odd roads and allows him to meet new people that he begins to like. However, you must read the book if you want to know if he fulfills his quest or not!

This book is wonderfully written, thought provoking, it has it’s happy moments and sad moments as well as many funny moments. It is a must read for anyone who enjoys reading different takes on the fairytale legends or myths.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
