Snow Whyte & the Queen of Mayhem by Melissa Lemon ~ Review




Katiyana Whyte’s world is only as big as the apple orchard she was raised on. She can never leave the home where she grew up under the careful eye of her great uncle Barney. But when life at the orchard suddenly becomes dangerous and her childhood friend Jeremy begs her to flee, Kat finds refuge in the Fluttering Forest with seven dwarfs.

Meanwhile, the queen of Mayhem, an evil sorceress, learns through her magic mirror that the daughter she believed to be dead still lives. Enraged, she sends a servant to kill Kat, the princess of Mayhem, but Kat finds protection in a spell that causes snowstorms whenever she is in danger, giving her the nickname Snow Whyte.

My Review:
I love Melissa Lemon's books and Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem doesn't disappoint.  Once again one of the classic fairytales is brought to life in a unique and unexpected way with twists and turns that capture the imagination of the reader.  I was captivated from the beginning and could not put this book down until I had read to the very last word.  A well-written piece of fantasy and imagination that is definitely worth reading.  But don't expect the same classic story, this one is as different as the classic Snow White was from her stepmother.
