Welcome to the Festival of Roses, a world full of magic and romance. Every year during the festival each boy leaves a flower at the door of the girl he believes is the “fairest of them all.” Naturally, Snow White gets dozens of flowers, while her younger sister Rose Red is ignored.
This year, though, things are different. For the first time, Rose Red has a mysterious admirer, and this year she isn’t the only one jealous of her sister’s beauty. But even though it’s a time of celebration, when girls begin disappearing, the festival turns deadly. With mysterious strangers arriving every day, an ominous marriage proposal, and magic and danger everywhere, Snow White and Rose Red will need to work together to survive the festival and solve the mystery.
As many of you know I love fairy tales retold or re imagined and this one is not exception. Rose comes of age and comes into her magic at just the right time in this story.
There is something dark and mysterious in the forest beyond their home. Something that forbids the people of there little town from going there at night. With magic surrounding them they should be safe, but they aren’t.
Snow and Rose’s mom goes for help but when she doesn’t return the girls must take matters into their own hands and find out once and for all what they are capable of. Curse of the huntsman takes us on a few twists and turns until we reach our ultimate conclusion.
Snow White and Rose Red are strong female characters that though afraid know what has to be done and take care of business. I recommend this quick read and look forward to the next one in the Snow and Rose adventure.
