Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis
Publication Date: October 14, 2014
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. With the galaxy’s future—and her own—in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival.
Seriously?? How can anyone NOT want to read this? It’s Snow White meets Antarctica, meets Star Wars meets TOTALLY FREAKING AWESOME! She has 7 loyal drones from cripes sake! (Who wants to guess what their names will be?) Add in a mysterious dude (who conveniently *cough cough* crash-lands by her royal drone-ness) and it suddenly morphs into one of the coolest sounding fairy tale re-imaginings since Cinder! Oh, and can we talk about the uber rad cover art just for a second? It is a motherboard. A MOTHERBOARD!! Take a close look people…that is circuitry masked by some sexy little swirlies! *swoon* Anywho…THIS is what I am waiting for.
What are YOU waiting for?
