Hello!! More reviews? Why not! Today I’m going to be reviewing ”The Shadow Queen” by C J Redwine which I was kindly sent a copy via Scholastic! (Thank you!!!!)
This is basically a retelling of Snow White. And if like me you loved the Lunar Chronicles and are left wanting more then pick this up!!!
It centers around our main character Lorelai a powerful enchantress who must kill the wicked Queen who took the Ravenspire throne and killed her father. To kill the Queen she must use what they both have in common; magic. She must be faster, stronger and more powerful than the Queen to win.
But obviously like the fairytale, this Queen ain’t going down, so she sends out a huntsman to cut out Lorelai’s heart- but not just any old huntsman, A FREAKING DRAGON-SHIFTING ONE
This huntsman, is also the second-born prince of the Kingdom of Eldr and 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. But, to save his kingdom he needs magic and so he makes 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.
SRSLY, I AM ON A FAIRYTALE BUZZZ HERE AND I LOVE THIS ONE SO MUCH
