Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly even hosted by Breaking the Spine which showcases some of the upcoming releases we are eagerly awaiting.This week i'm sort of waiting for Snow White Sorrow.
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 talks 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.
So I'm going to be completely honest and say that going to read this books for two reasons.
Reason # 1.
This reminds me of Anna Dressed in Blood and The Immortal Instruments. For real looks at the blurbs.
This book: What he finds instead is a beautiful monster girl filled with rage and hurt 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.
Anna Dressed in Blood: What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home .And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.
See my reasoning? Also check this out.
This book: He looks like an Angel but acts like jerk...He is a Dreamhunter. One of the few in the world who can hunt and kill immortal demons.
The Immortal Instruments: Okay so let's see...Jace was a total jerk(even though we all loved him let's face the truth he was a terribly, arrogant jerk.) Oh and Jace was a Shadowhunter who had the rare ability to hunt and kill demons and guess what? Loki has the ability to hunt and kill Demons also, I mean what a shocker!
Also I mean look at her tattoos remind you of anything?( Just look down if it doesn't.)
LOKI!!!!!! Tell me that when you read the main characters name you didn't think about this guy. I mean I have no idea what the guy looks like but every time I think about him I think of him as a younger version of Loki. ( well maybe a less evil version of Loki that isn't trying to take over the world and enslave human kind.)
So yes I am reading this book because well I feel like it has elements from really good books either way I think this book is going to either be really good or really bad...hopefully it will be the former. Anyway tell me what you guys think.
