Synopsis:

Lady Snow Gwyn is tired of playing “mother” to her seven Vampire

Slaying brothers. For the past two years, she’s yearned to be out there fighting at their side as they hunt

for bloodsuckers in the black of night. Snow is as good a fighter as any man, but she wasn’t called to be a

Slayer. A mere formality in her book.

Prince Sageren, Son of Lothar has spent the last fifty years in exile,

awaiting the day when he can finally avenge his family and take back his throne. Barely existing, he’s

forced to face his inner demons and the monster he once was, compelling him to vow to never drink

from humans again. A simple enough task–until he crosses paths with a human who makes his fangs

ache to drain her.

That’s why when Snow runs into Prince Sage on a late night trip to the

woods, she’s torn between the urge to kill him and the desire to succumb to the feeling he stirs within

her. And when Snow’s life is threatened by the same evil that murdered his family, Prince Sage must

enlist the aid of Snow’s brothers to not only help him save her life, but to also regain his rightful place as

King of the Vampires.

If Sage can keep the Slayers from killing him first.

Yes, this is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs but absolutely not as you know it! I love reading re-imagined versions of fairy tales. And the idea behind this one, Vampires, Weres and Slayers, is a great one. This is actually book two in the Fairelle series. I haven’t read book one and this was still a great read as a stand-alone. I didn’t feel lost at any point, also I felt as far as the story went I could leave it there if I wished. But, I can’t leave it there at all! I’m definitely intending on going back and reading the first book now.

Snow is pretty badass for a ‘proper lady’ Yes she definitely has her fair share of naivety about the world but she adapts pretty darn quickly and surprised me more than a few times with her quick thinking bravery. I’m guessing though, when you’re in a houseful of brothers who are slayers, you pick up a tip or two along the way! Her brothers are typical brothers in the way they can’t tidy up after themselves and they give Snow hell, but really that’s where the ‘typical’ ends. They are Vampire Slayers. That is who they are and what they do. Being a Slayer is so much a part of them that there is no way they see vampires in any other light. Slayers kill vampires otherwise the vampires will kill the Slayers.

This of course becomes quite the predicament when Snow bumps into a mysterious stranger, who turns out to be a mysterious vampire stranger. Sage is a Vampire Prince with a price on his head. He needs to focus on taking back his kingdom but he finds himself completely infatuated with Snow instead. Sage is probably one of the most restrained, well mannered vampires I have ever come across. So, it’s from here, from their first meeting in the forest, we watch Sage and Snow battle each other, the Slayers, the Vampires and seemingly the whole world whilst they begin a romance unlike any other.

By the time I was getting towards the end of the book I had literally NO idea how anything was going to get resolved. It all seemed completely hopeless. Of course there is a resolution and at first I really wasn’t sure how I felt about it… But I can honestly say by the end of the book I really do believe that there was no other way the story could’ve gone. In this instance, the ending worked perfectly for the characters and their journey. So yes, we get our HEA, with the added bonus of knowing that there is plenty more to come in this world. Plenty more adventures to be had and plenty more stories to be told.
