Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing Plc (UK & ANZ)
Publish Date: 6th October 2016
Seventeen-year-old Snow lives within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she doesn’t belong there, but she has no memory of life outside, except for the strangest dreams. And then a mysterious, handsome man, an orderly in the hospital, opens a door – and Snow knows that she has to leave …
She finds herself in icy Algid, her true home, with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she’s destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change everything. Heroine or villain, queen or broken girl, frozen heart or true love, Snow must choose her fate …
Firstly a thank you to Netgalley and Bloomsbury Publishing Plc for letting me read and review this book.
I loved this book. It has everything you could ask for, romance, action, mystery, and also the unknowing.
You instantly feel for Snow and being locked up in the mental institute. I did find it quite humorous that she has named her pills after the seven dwarfs. It seemed to be quite appropriate although the story it self has nothing to do with Snow White.
Poor Snow is thrown into a magical world of unknown, Algid has everything from Snow Beasts, to magic bearing humans and non magic humans. But magic is accessible in potion form.
I loved not knowing what was going to happen next. Not to mention the twist at the end (no spoilers now!). This book is definitely everything a girl could ask for in a book. For this reason I’m giving it a 5/5 and I’m looking forward to finding out what path Snow chooses and which man she chooses (if any).
