Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis is released this week. And this is a rarer retelling: a science fiction Snow White. I'm always thrilled with science fiction genre retellings of fairy tales. Thanks to Marissa Meyer for helping make them more popular in recent years. And hubby John and I had fun earlier last year with creating our own Science Fiction Fairy Tales from SurLaLune, one even a Snow White. Remember this?
The Stitching Snow (UK Edition) will be released in the UK in November, so not too long of a wait there.
Princess Snow is missing.
Her home planet is filled with violence and corruption at the hands of King Matthias and his wife as they attempt to punish her captors. The king will stop at nothing to get his beloved daughter back-but that's assuming she wants to return at all.
Essie has grown used to being cold. Temperatures on the planet Thanda are always sub-zero, and she fills her days with coding and repairs for the seven loyal drones that run the local mines.
When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realizes that Dane's arrival was far from accidental, and she's pulled into the heart of a war she's risked everything to avoid.
In her enthralling debut, R.C. Lewis weaves the tale of a princess on the run from painful secrets . . . and a poisonous queen. With the galaxy's future-and her own-in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival.
