My Review of "Snow White and Rose Red: Curse of the Horseman" by Lily Fang

This is a nice story, novella sized:

Snow White and Rose Red: The Curse of the HuntsmanSnow White and Rose Red: The Curse of the Huntsman by Lilly Fang
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Very enjoyable retelling of a fairy tale that reeks of Faerie in the same way that Smith of Wooten Major or Stardust does. This is a less ambitious story, but the magic is there below the surface.

The main characters in the story are two maidens who are beset with a host of problems that young women face (courters, rivalry, envy, poverty), while simultaneously being hunted because of their link to magic. It's a beautiful story of self-discovery and growth as well.

I thought this was very refreshing and I'm looking forward to the sequel.
