Poison by Sarah Pinborough
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A modern and adult re-telling of the Snow White story which casts the wicked queen in a far more sympathetic light than Disney ever did. Neither as daring nor racy as Angela Carter’s reworked fairy tales were, this is Snow White for Twilight fans, a contemporary, sassy reworking and the first of a mini trilogy which will cover Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.

If you like Sarah Pinborough you might also like to read books by Angela Carter, Gregory Maguire and Joanne M. Harris.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Poison by Sarah Pinborough

POISON is a beautifully illustrated re-telling of the Snow White story which takes all the elements of the classic fairytale that we love (the handsome prince, the jealous queen, the beautiful girl and, of course, the poisoning) and puts a modern spin on the characters, their motives and their desires. It's fun, contemporary, sexy, and perfect for fans of ONCE UPON A TIME, GRIMM, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN and more.
