Waiting on Wednesday #23


WoW is an awesome weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine.

What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?

Sixteen year old Loki Blackstar is no Prince Charming. His mother is a ghost. His only friend is a red Cadillac that talks 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.


~Ahh I just love fairytale retellings so much!! :)
This one sounds really good! Also... the main character;s name is LOKI.
...sorry. I love Tom Hiddleston. Especially as Loki.

  4. I have a feeling that when I read that one, I will be picturing Loki as a young Tom Hiddleston. He is Loki to me.

  5. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!! I love how you used Thor's Loki on your post -- he's not exactly as charming as the Loki I hear in this story, but darn is he hilariously weird! x) I love fairytale re-tellings like crazy too and I'm really happy you're waiting on this one like me!

    Awesome pick, Joie! :) <3
