The Fairytale Keeper: Avenging the Queen

Summary: (Barnes and Noble)
Many called her Snow White, but few knew her as the Fairytale Keeper.
Snow White was a pet name her mother had given her, but her mother’s dead now. Adelaide hates that name anyway. A rampant fever claimed Adelaide’s mother just like a thousand others in Cologne where the people die without Last Rites and the dead are dumped in a large pit outside of the city walls. Adelaide’s father is determined to obtain a funeral for his wife, but that requires bribing the parish priest, Father Soren. When Soren commits an unforgivable atrocity, he pushes Adelaide to her breaking point, but if she seeks justice against the cruel priest, she risks sacrificing everything: her father, her friends, her first love, and maybe even her life.
 
My Thoughts:
    I was contacted directly by the author for this one and was more than happy to review it for her. I hardly ever read fantasy type books but this was worth my time. With all the "revamps" on fairytales we keep seeing on the big screen it was time for a good book, doing the same thing. This put a totally different spin on the classic children's story. The story that was somewhat dark to begin with now becomes a story full of deep dark secrets. With each page I discovered something new. There is no way I will see the story of Snow White the same ever again.
 
A great book for those 13+.
