The Reflections of Queen Snow White – Book Review
A fascinating idea!
The author develops a sequel story to Snow White fairy tale.
Snow White is probably one of the most well-known and beloved stories of all time. I doubt that there is a single child who doesn’t know her tale.
Also, the author presents us with a Snow White that has come of age and is currently in a deep state of depression, mourning the death of King Charming, that happened one year before.
But the time is for joy, as their daughter, Princess Raven, is about to get married.
Trying to escape from her guests, Snow White ends up in a tower where she finds the magic mirror.
The mirror reveals Snow White’s most intimate feelings to her in a process that leads to reflection and ultimately some decisions that will change her attitude.
From feeling sorry for herself, after seeing her true strength through the mirror, the queen recovers from her state of sadness and goes back to a normal life, supporting her daughter in this celebrated moment of her life.
Although this is a sequel to Snow White as seen by the author, this book is not just another fairy tale; The theme is more adult oriented.
Nevertheless, the work is a great fantasy book that I recommend to everyone that likes well-written fantasies.
The author was too kind to send me a copy for an uncompromised book review.
