The Shadow Queen

Ravenspire

A New York Times bestselling dark epic fantasy inspired by the tale of Snow White, from C. J. Redwine, the author of the Defiance series. This breathtakingly romantic, action-packed fantasy is perfect for fans of A Court of Thorns and Roses and Cinder.   

Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.

In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, 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. To do that, Kol needs magic of his own—and the only way to get it is to make 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. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.

"The Shadow Queen" is the gripping first installment of a series that's bound to be one of the most enjoyable fairytale retellings I have read so far. After her parents' horrible deaths, Lorelai and her brother had to flee the castle and go into hiding. Nine years later she is ready to fight the wicked queen who stole everything from her and reclaim the throne that is rightfully hers. I love how C.J. Redwine manages to leave no doubt as to what fairytale inspired her to write this story, yet also makes it completely her own. Lorelai is a strong protagonist that readers can relate to and root for absolutely. Her journey is enthralling and won't let you put this book down easily. Leo, Gabril and Kol are characters I became fond of quickly and shed tears over occasionally. The character that surprised me the most, however, is Sasha - a sidekick who made me laugh numerous times and outshines every other beastly friend I've ever encountered (I am looking at you, Disney). If you enjoy YA fantasy and/or fairytale retellings, this is definitely a book you have to read. Personally, I can't wait to read the sequel "The Wish Granter".
