Pinborough's retelling was well done. I enjoyed the internal thoughts of the evil queen. They gave a strong show of why she was so feared and unliked by the people. Confident Snow White was also enjoyable, giving her a different disposition than the usual meek, helpless girl we see in the original. The twist was so well played that my jaw did a slow motion drop. Having enjoyed this as much as I did, I look forward to reading Pinborough's other books in this series.

Different spin on a familiar story...some of them amusing. But there were shifts in tone that i found jarring, as though the story had suddenly gone from the fairytale world to a contemporary settimg.

I enjoy the retelling of the old classics, this was interesting right up till the ending. What ever is wrong with this author I can't imagine, but in a very small space she managed to leave any element of a happy ending in ruins. Snow returns to her suspended state courtesy of the Prince who turns out to be a slimy little puke, the poor dwarfs are scheduled for assassination (again the Prince) the evil Queen wins and so on. About the only element the author has over looked is she could have had the King (who has been off to the wars) pick up syphilis while on campaign and return demented. I full well realize that I'm giving away the ending debacle, plot spoilers I believe they call it. I do this as a warning to any reader who might be considering reading this. As for the author, she ought to be sealed up in a barrel of pickle juice for a hundred years!
