Overview

Beauty…

Is the illusion the Queen cannot live without. It drives her to dark deeds beyond the imagination of those beneath the spell of her charms. Leaving ruined kingdoms in her wake, a dire prophecy before her–and one chance to conquer her fate.

Youth…

Is the only chance Fortulla has to escape the grim fate that awaits one branded as a servant of evil. She longs for the chance to grasp hope and happiness beyond the curse of her existence.

Innocence…

Is the child whose existence could change everything. A princess whose life is threatened by a darkness beyond her understanding; her destiny intertwined with good and evil.

First Bite reweaves the classic story of Snow White from the perspective of its diabolical villainess, one of the greatest in fairy tale lore. Told with the backdrop of magic, mystery, and centuries-old pagan lore, the story of a desperate Queen and an innocent princess is connected to a servant girl’s secret past. As the evil prophecy ripens, their fates merge in an ending only a Magic Mirror could forsee.

Writer Laura Briggs steps outside her usual sweet romance genre and pairs with her fellow indie author for their first full-length independent novel, adding a slight touch of romance to a fantasy tale of suspense.

    Amazing retelling of snow white

    To date: this is the best adult retelling of snow white but it does not stop there. Possible birth of the vampire legend. Whether its free or not get this book and begin your journey through these fairy tales that are masterfully retold on an adult level. Ms Briggs is a true master of story telling and i am so excited to read what she pens and begin my own journey through the dark twisted fairy tales i loved as a child and now as an adult.
