Sep 24, 2020TEENREVIEWBOARD rated this title 4 out of 5 stars
“The Shadow Queen” by C.J Redwine is the first installment in the “Ravenspire” series. This book is a retelling of the classic, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” but with many more twists. Unlike Snow White, Lorelai is a fierce, strong, and confident protagonist that solves the many problems that come her way. All the characters were entertaining, especially Lorelai’s sarcastic but humorous brother. This epic fantasy book with hints of romance will keep you engaged for the most part. However, one thing I noticed was that the problems that Lorelai faced were either solved too quickly or without that much of a struggle. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend this to people who enjoy retellings, fantasy or romance. I rate this book a 4 out of 5.
