Mini Reviews – 2 Short Stories

Snow White’s Revenge

31732237
Published – 12 July 2016

Review Notes:

  • A short story retelling of Snow White’s classic tale.
  • Here she is portrayed as a strong, independent lady, who wants revenge for her family and land, after the evil Queen takes over.
  • She is imprisoned at a young age by the Queen, then escapes and that’s where her adventure begins.
  • There is some character development, but because this story is short, the pace makes development hard.
  • You also see a bit of magic in this tale.
  • Romance is also a small part of this story and I had hoped to see something new here,  but the essence of the classic tale was prominent in the plot.
  • I’d love to see where Casey takes the tales in the future.

Keep an eye out for her other novels:

Review Notes:

  • A beautiful tale about family, friendship, love and loss.
  • There is some element of magic here, although you do not expect it at the start.
  • This enhances the plot, rather than distracting the reader, in an unexpected way.
  • Couldn’t put this book down.
  • Symbolism is a huge part of this story.
  • We get subtle hints of the lessons the main character needs to learn.
  • The ending to this exceptional tale gave me chills!

Creativity is my passion, and I have been told that my soul is old, and my body young... Dunno if that is true, but... Anyhoe, gonna start with book reviews, and hauls of the new books I acquire. Maybe if I am better with this blogging thing, I'll expand...
