Inside Book Jacket
Katiyana Whyte's world is only as big as the apple orchard she was raised on. She can never leave the home where she grew up under the careful eye of her uncle Barney. But when life at the orchard suddenly becomes dangerous and her childhood friend Jeremy begs her to flee, Kat finds refuge in the Fluttering Forest with seven dwarves.
Meanwhile, the queen of Mayhem, an evil sorceress, learns through her magic mirror that the daughter she believed to be dead, still lives. Enraged, she sends a servant to kill Kat, the princess of Mayhem, but Kat finds protection in a spell that causes snowstorms whenever she is in danger, giving her the nickname Snow Whyte.
In the wonderfully imagined Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem, nobody is quite who they seem. Full of romance and adventure, this is the magical tale of Snow White as you've never read it.
4 of out 5 stars. I was instantly taken with this story. I loved the narrator (I won't say who he is for spoiler reasons, but you find out early on). I really enjoyed seeing each character through his eyes. The Queen was awesomely evil. She truly was a wicked queen, and written very well. Queen Radiance (as she made her subjects call her) stole the show. There are so many twists in this great story, and lots of fun surprises. Kat is a sweetheart. I enjoyed how her little dwarf friends loved her , and how she loved them. Jeremy was an unexpected surprise, and his story is so cool! Again, many twists that are very enjoyable.
