      Weird! This book had a fairly promising beginning. A few subtle changes but easily recognizable as Snow White. Then you reach the part where she encounters the dwarfs, or in this case, the lonely ones, and it gets a little bizarre for my tastes. I liked parts of the final half and other parts were just too odd. And the conclusion really had me rolling my eyes! I'm intrigued enough, however, to try at least one more of these Once Upon a Time books. (First half - 3 stars, second half - 2 stars)

      This definitely wasn't what I was expecting, but in a good way! It has all the elements of the original fairy tale, but with a creepy, steampunk twist!Jessica is the only child of a Welsh duke and his first wife, who dies at childbirth, and because of that, he loses all interest in his daughter, letting her run wild on the state, befriending the servants and being practically raised by them. Until the day in which, out of the need of a male heir to inherit Kenigh Hall, the duke remarries, this t [...]

      Once upon a time, there was a reviewer who loved fairy tales. She discovered a luminous retelling of Snow White complete with a stepmothers jealous vanity, kindly yet isolated miners, and a deathlike sleep, and, after giving the book five stars, lived happily ever after.When a duke's wife dies during the birthing of their long awaited child, the motherless darling grows up in the kitchens until her father remarriage (coinciding with her puberty). The duke's new wife takes the tomboyish Jessica u [...]

      REALLY REALLY REALLY WEIRD!!!!! Everything about this book was strange. From the "seven dwarfs"(which were really five hybrids between animal and human, can you say creepy?) to the wicked stepmother, who was basically this mental scientist whose purpose I never really understood. Even snow/Jessica was a weirdo, although that may not be surprising considering her abused childhood. "Prince Charming" was actually this half raven freak, and instead of waking her with a kiss, they shock her on the li [...]

      3.5 stars. I loved the setting for this story, and even though I know the tale of Snow White very well, it was uniquely retold enough that I was still anxious to see how things played out.

    • Bookworm Jo says:

      This was a cute retelling of Snow White.Jessica is a duchess heir born to a duke and duchess in Wales. The Duchess dies after giving birth to Jessica. The duke, so saddened by his wife's death gives Jessica to the maids to raise and wants nothing to do with her. Of course he marries again to a woman who is very vain and does everything in her power to stay young. Events happened and Jessica has to go on the run and escapes to London. In London she meets a band of outcasts who take her under thei [...]

      2 starsFairy tales rebooted or retold are so much fun to read if the author can write a good tale of a woman filled with feminism. Even better like Lisa Kleypas writes in her romances. After watching the Disney version of Snow White I've always wanted to see a more realistic version of the tale because I hate the witch(stepmother) . Every time I see her my mind devices plans of how I can kill her with a gun or something and cackle in her face saying "You're busted" I hate her so much. She's so [...]

      Story *** 5/5The Duchess Jessica Kenigh of Wales longs to live her life free of obligation and duty. Her father, resentful of her existence since her mother died giving birth to her, only keeps her around as an potential heir to his throne. Her stepmother, Anne, is jealous of her youth and beauty. Jessica prefers the company of the cooks, and the mice who inhabit her home, and dreams of a life of adventure. When a series of tragedies strike the hall at Kenigh, Jessica finds herself penniless and [...]

      Well, I have to say that this book was a disappointment for me. I have enjoyed quite a few of the other books in this series, but I just can’t say that for Snow. Not that it wasn’t interesting, because it was. But I feel Tracy Lynn went a little too far with the evil duchess. That the duchess “made” half-animal, half-people creatures really bothered me. All her spells and machines and experiments made me think of witchcraft or something, and kind of just ruined the whole book for me. The [...]

    • Emily Stroba says:

      This book is like the original Snow white and all so like Snow White and the Huntsman.But it dose not have the seven dwarfs it has these five half-human people a raven, a cat, a mouse ,a sparrow, and a rat and they are called the lonely ones. and gets like snow white and snow white and the huntsman the stepmother is evil.

      In Wales during the reign of Queen Victoria, a Duke in a small village loses his wife in childbirth when she gives birth to his daughter, Jessica. Broken hearted over the loss of his beloved wife, the Duke let his daughter be raised by the various servants. When the Duke remarries the beautiful and intelligent Anne, Jessica finally has a mother. As the Duchess teaches her how to be a proper woman, Jessica still finds ways to be with the servants. Her best friend Allen, the violin player, spends [...]

    • Arely says:

      I really liked this retelling of Snow White. You could see the similarities between this story and the original Snow White, but this one had a lot of originality that it kept me riveted.Snow—or rather, Jessica—is a child raised by servants. Since the servants obviously do not know how a proper duchess is to be raised, Jessica mostly runs wild among the estate. That is, until her father remarries. Everyone, including Jessica, is fooled by Anne, the new duchess, except for Alan, the fiddler. H [...]

    • Kiirsi Hellewell says:

      I've read several of the fairy-tale "retellings" in this series, and most of them suffer from the same problem: the story takes forever to get going, but is wrapped up WAY too quickly, leaving the reader very un-satisfied and feeling like the time invested wasn't all that worth it.I liked the story, once it got going. It was a very interesting twist on Snow White and held my interest throughout (which was cool since I've never been a fan of Snow White). I liked the Lonely Ones and the use of "sc [...]

    • Pamela(AllHoney) says:

      A retelling of the Snow white fairy tale. Jessica aka Snow is the only child of a duke. Her mother died in childbirth and the duke has very little to do with his daughter. She is left to the servants to raise. One day her father decides to remarry in hopes of having a son. Enter the evil step-motherStarted a tad slow for me. But once it picked up I was able to fly through the story. Definitely written for a younger group. Teens, I believe. Set, I believe, in the Victorian era, with a cast of int [...]

      SUMMARY: The Duchess Jessica's childhood began with a tragedy: her mother's death. Her father, heartbroken at the loss of his beloved wife, could not bear to raise the child. Largely ignored, Jessica spent the first eleven years of her life running free on the family estate, cared for only by the servants. Then her father decides to remarry, bringing an end to Jessica's independence. At first her new stepmother just seems overly strict. But as Jessica grows into a beautiful young woman, it becom [...]

    • Heidi-Marie says:

      OK. Well, I knew the original tale had its very odd qualities and such, so I was intrigued what direction this retelling of Snow White would be. Definitely not what I imagined. For one, it was set in Victorian Era. Actual Victorian time which puts it too much into "real life" for me to be happy with a fairy tale world. Plus, I think it ended up restricting or complicating the author's attempts at a story. The Gemma Doyle trilogy worked the historical fantasy much better than this book. I feel th [...]

    • Stephanie says:

      "Snow: A Retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" is a compelling twist of the well-known tale, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" by the infamous Grimm Brothers. The story begins with the tragic death of Duchess Jessica's mother, who dies during childbirth. The father of the duchess is devastated by his wife's demise and is terrified at the reality of being a widower, who has to raise a baby girl alone. So, Duchess Jessica is completely ignored by him during her childhood years, and the re [...]

      good characters :D good plotgood book

    • Grace Bittle says:

      I really good retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

    • ♠ Tabi ♠ says:

      I LOVED this book! At first I didn't think I would, because it started out kinda dull and boring, but wow that sure changed somewhere around the third chapter!! This retelling is amazing! Very imaginative and yet still retaining that classic "fairytale" feel to it. I also liked the way it seemed like a steampunk world as well, especially when Snow came to London.But I’m not making very much sense right now. Let me start at the beginning.You all know the story of Snow White, right? She’s beau [...]

      Jessica lives as a princess, free to do as she would wish under her widower father, the king. When her father remarries in hopes of having a son (an heir to his throne) Jessica's life changes dramatically. She is required to be more proper, and her stepmother takes great interest in her (at first). After a horrible experience with a prince before a party, Jessica's stepmother changes in her attitude. Obsessed with having a son, she is determined Jessica's heart will give her what she needs. Jess [...]

    • Kitty says:

      This book was a quick read and you can probably get it done in a day. I almost wish there was more just because I really loved the characters a lot and I wanted for antics between Snow and the "7 dwarves" who are actually a group of human/animal hybrids. Summary:Jessica is a duchess from the country whose mother died almost immediately after her birth. Her father blames the poor child for it (the dad is a scumbag and was no better than our main antagonist). So Jessica grows up in the kitchens wh [...]

    • Mel (Daily Prophecy) says:

      This story is a modern/different version of Snow White and I absolutely loved it. I think the charactes in this book are really sweet. It nice to see such a version of Snow White with all the magic and stuff happening. And the fact that the seven dwarfs are totally different than in the real story. I must say, that I loved those guys (and girl). They were so friendly and protective for eachother. And I also liked that she didn't end with a prince, but with the one she truly loves. Not like 'oooo [...]

    • Jackie Smith says:

      Snow by Tracy Lynn is a part of the Once Upon A Time series of fairy tale retelling's and it take the classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and completely turns it on it head. In this version of the classic children's tale there are half human half animals, an electrocution, memory loss, a man that is half robot or something and it is set in the age of Queen Victoria in London England. Sound a little strange to you, well that's because it is, yet somehow the story really pulls it's weight and [...]

    • Bridget Little says:

      Snow is a Victorian Era-based retelling of Snow White. It is fairly short but memorable. The writing can be cheesy and obvious, but the book as a good deal of creativityE CHARACTERS:Duchess Jessica/Snow: she is fairly basic as female protagonists go (her main defining character traits are that she is nice and down-to-earth) but she is still very likable and relatable, particularly in her childhood.The Duchesses Anne: probably the strangest character, and that's saying something. She appears at f [...]

    • Kirstin says:

      Although the story, a retelling of the classic "Snow White," takes place in 1920s Great Britain, Jessica (and her stepmother, Anne, for that matter) is a heroine with modern sensibilities, placing it firmly in the category of steampunk fiction.Jessica is still a young girl when her father, a man from whom she is mostly estranged, remarries a woman from far away. She looks forward to the idea of finally having a mother, but is disappointed when the English duchess seems more interested in spendin [...]

    • Kay says:

      I really enjoyed the alternate aspect to Snow White. Favorite Aspects: Instead of Dwarves, it was a band of misfits of half animals and half humans called the Lonely Ones and are 5 instead of 7. Jessica's (aka Snow) step-mother-duchess is a scientist/sorceress (shocker) and she enchants Snow's best friend Alan with a necklace to always tell her the truth, and bind him to keep her secrets and do her bidding That really put a fairytale-yet-realistic aspect to it. Said friend was the MIRROR! The Cl [...]

    • Historyprincess says:

      "Snow White" has been adapted numerous times, but very rarely do they reach the level of creativity that this retelling did. This is one of my favorites of the series, and I wish that Tracy Lynn wrote more for the series than just this one book.Jessica is the daughter of the Duke of Kenigh, and lives in Wales in the early nineteenth century. However, her father is distant because Jessica's mother, whom her father loved dearly, died giving birth to her. For the first eleven years of her life, Jes [...]

    • Samantha says:

      I really enjoyed the novel Snow by Tracy Lynn. Although it's a retelling of a beloved fairy tale, the characters are unique and the mysteries original. The main character, Jessica was born the day her mother died. Her father, the Duke of Kenigh, is heartbroken by his wife's death. He shuns Jessica because she is not a male heir and he blames her for her mother's death. Jessica is raised by the servants, running wild and happy. Then the duke remarries and Snow has a new mother, a haughty beautifu [...]

    • Kara says:

      This book needed to go through several more drafts to find its feet and work out the rather major kinks. First, Tracy Lynn did not do enough research on the Victorian period. The dialogue was often gaggingly modern, and the world did not seem fully fleshed out - or fully understood by the author. She needed to do more research on the class system, geography, culture, speech, landscape, and, most of all, names. Naming the Victorian character "Jessica" did not seem to fit at all. Two of the charac [...]
