R.C. Lewis’s futuristic spin on the story of Snow White was definitely something I adored reading. The action is exciting, the plot twists are intriguing, and the references to the fairy tale of Snow White were fun to find. The story is also rather complex, which made stepping into the world of Stitching Snow that much more interesting. However, for the first several chapters, this complexity makes it difficult to absorb what is going on in the story. Although initially it does take a while to stitch together the information about the plot, the book is extremely fascinating from beginning to end, and the story sucked me in the further that I read.
This book is a great find for action, sci-fi, and fantasy readers. It has everything from romance, to drama, to adventure, and much, much more. Stitching Snow is a wonderfully written retelling, and a story that will stick with you long after you’ve finished.
