An edgy fairy tale retelling of “Snow White” set in the world of Kill Me Softly for fans of Once Upon a Time and Grimm.
If you want to live happily ever after, first you have to stay alive.
Viv knows there’s no escaping her fairy-tale curse. One day her beautiful stepmother will feed her a poison apple or convince her on-again-off-again boyfriend, Henley, to hunt her down and cut out her heart before she breaks his. In the city of Beau Rivage, some princesses are destined to be prey.
But then Viv receives an invitation to the exclusive club where the Twelve Dancing Princesses twirl away their nights. There she meets Jasper, an underworld prince who seems to have everything—but what he really wants is her. He vows to save her from her dark fate if she’ll join him and be his queen. All Viv has to do is tear herself away from the huntsman boy who still holds her heart. Then she might live to see if happily ever after is a promise the prince can keep. But is life as an underworld queen worth sacrificing the true love that might kill her? Faced with a possible loophole to her “Snow White” curse, Viv goes underground, literally, to find the prince who’s fated to rescue her. But is life safe in the Underworld worth the price of sacrficing the love that might kill her?


I just stumbled upon this. As in today. Lol! If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a sucker for retellings. Yes, I am. This one literally caught my eye among all the books I’ve checked today. The book cover is kind of cute (Though it has blood on it. Yeah.) and the rundown is so intriguing, I can’t even let this pass. I’m pretty sure this would be awesome. I just don’t like the idea of a possible love triangle. Really hoping there would be none or if there is, I’m hoping it won’t be annoying at least. Love triangles tend to be annoying right? Especially if it’s written poorly so I’m really hoping this book won’t be like that.
