Mirror, Mirror: A Twisted Tale poses the question, what if the Evil Queen poisoned the prince?
Following her beloved mother’s death, the kingdom falls into the hands of Snow White’s stepmother, commonly referred to as “the Evil Queen” by those she rules. Snow keeps her head down at the castle, hoping to make the best of her situation.
But when new information about her parents resurfaces and a plot to kill her goes haywire, everything changes for Snow. With the help of a group of wary dwarfs, a kind prince she thought she’d never see again, and a mysterious stranger from her past, Snow embarks on a quest to stop the Evil Queen and take back her kingdom. But can she stop an enemy who knows her every move and will stop at nothing to retain her power… including going after the ones Snow loves?
Mirror, Mirror is such a fun retelling of Snow White, I loved it! It is the 6th book in the Twisted Tales Series. The story follows most of the classic tale with the exception of a twist toward the ending that I don’t want to spoil, although I guess it sort of gives it away on the front of the book. So yes, the evil queen doesn’t give the apple to Snow White she gives it to the prince.
I used to love Snow White as a little girl and reading this book totally took me back to my childhood. I felt like it stayed really true to the Disney classic until toward the end.
If you’re a Disney fan, this will be a fun and quick read! I am a sucker for Disney movies and books! I remember my parents reading this one to me at bedtime, trying to skip ahead a few pages at a time. I wasn’t very ok with that. Lol
I will definitely be looking for the other Twisted Tales! Have you read any of them?
I’d love to hear your thoughts…
Here are the other books in the series…
Happy Reading Friends!❤️ What are you reading this weekend?
