Summary

Summary

Princess Snow is missing. Her home planet is filled with violence and the king will stop at nothing to get his beloved daughter back - but that's assuming she wants to return at all. Essie has grown used to being cold. When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realises that Dane's arrival was far from accidental, and she's pulled into the heart of a war she's risked everything to avoid. In her enthralling debut, R.C. Lewis weaves the tale of a princess on the run from painful secrets.


Author Notes

R.C. Lewis (www.rclewisbooks.com and @RC_Lewis) teaches math to teenagers-sometimes in sign language, sometimes not-so whether she's a science geek or a bookworm depends on when you look. That may explain why her characters don't like to be pigeonholed. Coincidentally, R.C. enjoys reading about quantum physics and the identity issues of photons.

Booklist Review

In this offbeat take on Snow White, Essie, a part-time cage fighter and repairs genius on the subzero mining planet Thanda, has her life thrown into upheaval when a ship crash-lands. Inside, she finds the mysterious Dane, a young man from the planet Garam. They clash immediately, he from the upper echelons and she barely scraping by, but their romance builds gradually and irresistibly. Together, they seek a treasure that could change the galaxy and both their lives. They travel to other planets and meet revolutionaries while narrowly avoiding immigration control, which could imprison both of them, as well as hired killers with eyes out for anyone who could disrupt the status quo in the capital city of Windsong. Readers are thrown right into the action the novel opens with a cage fight between protagonist Essie and a miner but progress from there is slow. There's a definite learning curve to the invented vocabulary, which may deter casual readers. Still. a gripping story with lots of moving parts and will likely appeal to fans of genre fiction.--Comfort, Stacey Copyright 2014 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

Even by the rough-and-tumble standards of the frozen planet Thanda, Essie is unusual-she likes to cage-fight angry men just back from working in the mines, and when Essie isn't fighting, she's a mechanic, fixing ships and tinkering with drones. After a stranger named Dane crashes on Thanda, Essie tries to help him, but ends up getting kidnapped. She's taken to Dane's planet, Candara, where his people plan to trade her to the king in exchange for the release of Candaran prisoners, one of whom is Dane's father. Essie is a valuable find-she's actually a young princess who escaped the clutches of the stepmother who tried to kill her when she was nine. In this interplanetary retelling of Snow White, debut author Lewis reveals a talent for worldbuilding and creating complex, memorable characters. As Essie owns up to her past and takes control of her fate, SF and fairytale fans alike will enjoy watching her beat the odds and find romance in the process. Ages 14-up.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-Essie has been living on her own as the only female in the mining settlement of Forty-Two on the frozen tundra of the planet Thanda, filling her days tinkering with drones and prize fighting. It is only when Dane, a handsome young man, mysteriously crashes near her home that Essie's true past comes to light. Princess Snow has been missing from her home planet for eight years, a fact that has led King Matthias and his evil wife to war. With less-than-subtle pressure from Dane, Essie is forced to face her past, save the galaxy from the wrath of Windsong's evil rulers, and take her birthright seat on the throne. A futuristic take on the classic Snow White tale, this fast-paced story intertwines romance with action. Unfortunately, Mia Barron's monotonous narration does the exciting plot no favors.
