A dark epic fantasy inspired by the tale of Snow White, from C. J. Redwine, the author of the Defiance series. Perfect for fans of A Court of Thorns and Roses and Cinder.Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She'll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol's father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic of his own—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman—and bring her Lorelai's heart.But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn't going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.

3.0 The Shadow Queen
I'll be honest, this probably isn't a book I would have normally went out and purchased, however, I received an ARC of 'The Wish Granter', book #2 in the Ravenspire series, and sequel to 'The Shadow Queen' and I was intrigued enough to give the series a try (great marketing by Balzer + Bray). I opte...

4.5 Review: The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine
Unexpected in all of the best ways. I picked this up because I basically read as many fairy tale retellings as possible, it's my preferred genre. And it works as a retelling of Snow White, but also as a standalone fantasy novel with extremely solid world building. As a matter of fact, it's some of t...

2.5 Audiobook Review: The Shadow Queen (Ravenspire #1) by C.J. Redwine
My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com. Let me start out by saying that I’m not a huge fan of young adult books. I do read them, but I’m pretty picky about it. So when I say that I didn’t love this book, it is very likely a “it’s not you, but me” issue. I ha...

3.0 The Shadow Queen
This Snow White re-telling involves a magic wielding, fugitive princess battling the evil queen with the help of seven dragons, a mind-linked bird and a mind-linked huntsman/king/dragon. It's a little different, to say the least. Lorelai and her brother Leo are on the run from evil queen Irina, ...

I received this book in an Epic Reads giveaway.I actually really enjoyed this book. It was a creative retelling of a fairy tale that has been told many, many times. But I think Redwine's adaptation was pretty unique and I like the direction she took it, especially in regards to some of the weirder/c...
