Sixteen year old Loki Blackstar is no Prince Charming.
His mother is a ghost. His only friend is a red Cadillac that sings
to him through the radio. He looks like an Angel but acts like jerk.
No wonder he has been banned from Heaven, which is the least of his troubles. Loki needs a job to pay for school and support himself. Still, Loki has a rare gift: He is a Dreamhunter. One of the few in the world who can hunt and kill immortal demons in their dreams so they never wake up again. When Loki is
sent to kill a sixteen-year-old vampire girl the locals call Snow White Sorrow, he is pulled into a magical but dangerous world. The locals believe the monster to be Snow White. The real Snow White... living in the ruins of an ancient castle in a small town. She is described as horribly beautiful, terrifyingly enchanting, and wickedly lovely. What he finds instead is a beautiful monster girl filled with rage and hurt, who has an epic untold story to tell of things such like why the Brothers Grimm altered the fairy tale, who the Evil Queen really is, where the mirror came from, and who possessed it.
Snow White has killed every person who has
dared come near the castle where she once lived with the queen.
Mysteriously, she lets Loki live, and whispers two words in his ears;
two words that will change his life forever.
What I thought: We've all heard the same fairy tales over and over again. So much so that we could probably tell them without the book in front of us. But what happens when the fairy tales we thought we knew were actually rewritten. The truth taken out or obscured so that we didn't know they were real and living in the real world. Most of them don't even know who they really are. Loki Blackstar is a vampire hunter who's trying to kill enough vampires to get back home and find out about his past. I love the premise of this book. Twisted fairy tales and them being rewritten to hide the truth. The writing is a little repetitive in some places,but other than that the book is good.
