Ash fought for her brother, now she has to fight for her life. When the spell to save her brother worked, she didn't anticipate the problems that would follow suit. It destroyed her magic and in so doing left her life force to drain away. For months, the Witch Council searched for a way to stop her inevitable death, but nothing has come of it so far. Then Ash has a dream and as soon as she wakes up meets the little girl who starred in it. Kay Dewitt is sick. She's also special. She knows things she shouldn't and guides Ash to find the thing that could save them both. But the Council doesn't believe and turns Ash's boyfriend against her. Ash is on her own again...Only this time two lives are at stake. Loyalty and friendship are tested in this Snow White retelling.
My take on this book: Oh my god I loved this book so much. Katie Doyle has a way of creating a story that captivates her readers within the first sentence of a chapter. It makes them regret putting it down to do mundane things like chores or to make a meal or even just to go to bed. At least, it does with me.
Ash and Snow is the second book of the series and I have to say that it’s a really good story. I think this is an actual book for the series not a Novella. I am glad that Mrs. Doyle asked me to read the first book in this series as I am now hooked on it and I can’t wait to see which fairytale she does next.
This book takes place a short time after Ash saves her brother from her evil mother. Who was trying to kill him so that she could make Ash even more powerful however Ash loses her magic in the process. This kind of backfires in the way that Ash is now dying from doing the spell. The Witch Council of course is trying to find a way to save her and make sure that she has full custody of her little brother. After she has a dream about something that could save her the council, especially her boyfriend are reluctant to help her. Even more so after she finds out that the little girl that was in her dream is in coma and doesn’t have long to live, much like Ash.
Ash takes off to find this cure with the help of the one person that she doesn’t want in her life ever again. Thankfully the book ends on a kind of happy note for both Kay and Ash. Ash and Snow is a brilliantly written book from Katie Doyle and one that I didn’t hesitate to give it five stars to. I can’t wait to see what happens in the future for these two especially with the predicament that Ash has put herself into after finding the cure.
Anyways until the next time enjoy this book review brought to you by
