Reseña del editor
For anyone whos seen Walt Disneys Snow White, youll know that the Wicked Queen is one evil woman! After all, its not everyone who wants to cut out their teenage step-daughters heart and have it delivered back in a locked keepsake box. (And even if this sort of thing is a common urge, we dont know many people who have acted upon it.)
Now, for the first time, well examine the life of the Wicked Queen and find out just what it is that makes her so nasty. Heres a hint: the creepy-looking man in the magic mirror is not just some random spooky visage?and he just might have something to do with the Queens wicked ways!

Here, Serena Valentino crafts a backstory to the Evil Queen of legend, positing a history that, were different choices made, could have allowed for a very different -- and altogether more positive -- outcome of the Queen's relationship with her stepdaughter Snow White. Much like Elphaba's story in Wicked, the television show Once Upon a Time, or (presumably) the upcoming film Maleficent, this novel attempts to reassess the Queen in light of her upbringing, if not exactly excusing or attempting to justify her behavior outright, but rather to offer a plausible reason as to why the Queen would go to such drastic measures to remove Snow from her life.
The young Queen is one eager for a place to belong, desperately in love with her husband and eager to be a mother to her new daughter. But she's terribly insecure, crippled her father's emotional abuse and eager, desperate for the validation being in a family can provide. However, when that haven is threatened, the door is opened for this insecure Queen to seek affirmation elsewhere -- even if its at the hands of a mirror whose power stems from her greatest oppressor.
I love the ambition behind this novel, and the fairly plausible manner in which Valentino attempts to flesh out the canon of the film. It is a bit simplistic in its rendering, however, as she introduces great ideas only to leave them less than fully developed, perhaps giving the target audience less credit than they deserve. Valentino knows her source material, and peppers her story with film and other Disney canonical (including my favorite, a Sleeping Beauty shout-out!). Her prose, while occasionally reminscent of Grimm or Perrault, can be somewhat simplistic and stilted, filled with awkward descriptions and "flourishes," but on the whole this is a pleasing addition to Disney and fairy tale lore. I'd love to see Valentino explore the backstory of other famous villains, like Ursula, or perhaps Cinderella's enigmatic nemesis -- a veritable treasure trove of opportunities are waiting in the wings, and Valentino's passion and imaginative flair for this type of fiction holds promise.
I love Disney and I love fantasy/science fiction books so picking this up to read was a no brainier. Even though this book is "young adult" I never thought so while reading it.
It captured my attention throughout, moves along at a nice pace, and was a nice legnth for me as I don't have a lot of free time most days.
This book is apparently a trilogy, I have read the Ursula book in this series and I did not enjoy it as much as this one. This one truly is something special and I could just imagine the Disney Animated characters in this, I enjoyed reading this from a different perspective
Defintely worth the $8 I paid :)
