Volume 1 in the BLOOD AND SNOW series. Each volume is novelette length.
“Lips red as rubies, hair dark as night. Drink your true love’s blood, become the Vampire, Snow White.”
EVERY THOUSAND YEARS THE VAMPIRE QUEEN SELECTS A NEW BODY, ALWAYS THE FAIREST IN THE LAND, AND THIS TIME SHE’S CHOSEN SNOW WHITE.
Snow White lives in Salem, Massachusetts with her dad, stepmother, and her cat, Gatsby. Her entire life she’s been teased for her fairy tale name, and the fact that her seven best friends happen to be guys whose names begin with the same letters as the seven dwarves.
Everything changes on a trip into Boston, where an unseen stranger bites her, and she’s transformed into something not quite human.

Buy the book on Amazon
I got this book while it was a free giveaway on Amazon. I wasn’t sure what to expect at first, because I’m just not into the whole vampire thing as everyone else seems to be and I tend to avoid it whenever possible. But I got it. I put it on my Kindle along with about 500 other books I have yet to read and then last night, I was like ‘meh,’ *shrug* ‘why not’ Well…
My first mistake: not reading this book sooner!
My second mistake: not seeing just how many chapters were actually a part of this story!
There is only 46pgs in this book. 46. If that’s not a teaser, if that isn’t just torturous after delivering such an unbelievable plot, I honestly don’t know what is. It’s kind of like being suspended from a tight wire, hanging over a chasm of alligators, broken needles and acid (do not ask how all those things co-exist in the same chasm, it just does), expecting your crew to come save you and then… nothing. You’re just left dangling there like a worm on a hook, feeling stupid for wearing your leather tights because now it’s beginning to chafe.
So, we meet Snow. Snow is sweet, shy and clumsy. She has one best girl friend and seven best boy friends and no parents to speak of (her mother is dead and her father remarried to a figurine-collecting wicked witch and they go traveling, A LOT). If you haven’t connected the dots yet, well, it’s Snow White, vampire style!
Aside from being super shy, Snow is also super unaware that she is gorgeous and her seven buddies are veering for her attention. Unfortunately for six of them, she already has her eyes set on one of the brothers, Gabe.
Gabe is awesome! The guy is like all things snuggable! He’s witty, charming and he doesn’t hold back telling our darling Snow White that he thinks she’s the best thing since chocolate cake.
Then, like any good twisted fairytale story, we learn that there is a queen who wants Snow for her notoriously evil plans. It’s all growing thick and knotted. Me likes, a whole bunch! Then, the author stole my book, hit me upside the head and ran away. I’m pretty sure she was laughing. It was all very mean. So now, I’m going to go badger her until she finishes Blood and Snow 2: Revenant in Training (Blood and Snow #2)
So, in conclusion:
Will I read the next book? WHERE IS IT?!!? GIVE ME!!! *calms down* *clears throat* yes.
Will I tell my friends about this book? Yes.
Did I enjoy it? Yes.
