Summary
The story of Snow White is retold within an historical background. Bianca de Nevada is a young beauty who is tormented by Lucrezia Borgia, the spoiled, ruthless, and wealthy daughter of a Pope, until Bianca finds safety and solace in the company of seven strange almost-men.
Critique
Intelligent, spooky, a little vicious, and a little bawdy. Great descriptions and unforgettable characters make this a fabulous new interpretation of an old story. Maguire is a modern-day Grimm. Highly recommend.
