Blood & Snow – Book 1 (Volumes 1-4) by RaShelle Workman – Bout-of-Books 15 Review

BloodAndSnow“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. 
BLOOD AND SNOW: Snow White isn’t an ordinary girl. She doesn’t know that yet.
REVENANT IN TRAINING: Snow has become something not quite human. She must discover how to live with the changes, hopefully without killing anyone.
THE VAMPIRE CHRISTOPHER: Snow White craves blood. Especially the blood of her Hunter. But will drinking from him save or enslave her?
BLOOD SOAKED PROMISES: Snow White must come to terms with her bloodlust. It’s one thing to drink the blood of her Hunter, something else entirely to drink the blood of a human.

First things first. If you go into this thinking that because the book contains Volume 1-4 you’re going to get a satisfying segue into the next book… just don’t. Do yourself a favor and pick up either Book 2 and Book 3, because this ends in the biggest, most agonizing cliff hanger I’ve read in a very long time.

I liked the unique twist, which was two-fold. The obvious was the fairy tale of Snow White, but the other was the vampire mythology. Which means is should come as no surprise that I liked the story itself. There’s a bit of a love triangle and a couple of little hiccups in the story line which might bother some readers, but I liked the characters and even with the teenage angst that I usually steer clear from, it was a quick, enjoyable read.

I guess there’s no need in saying that more questions and mysteries were left hanging than were resolved – as well as the fate of more than one key character. I’ve already picked up Book 2 which includes Volumes 5-8… I probably didn’t need to tell you that either 😉
