When Camille was six years old, she was discovered alone in the snow by Enrico Vultusino, godfather of the Seven - the powerful Families that rule magic-ridden New Haven. Papa Vultusino adopted the mute, scarred child, naming her after his dead wife and raising her in luxury on Haven Hill alongside his own son, Nico.

Now Cami is turning sixteen. She's no longer mute and she keeps her faded scars hidden under her school uniform. She opens up only to her two best friends, Ruby and Ellie, and to Nico, who has become more than a brother to her. But even though Cami is a pampered Vultusino heiress, she knows that she is not really Family. Unlike them, she is a mortal with a past that lies buried in trauma. And it's not until she meets the mysterious Tor, who reveals scars of his own, that Cami begins to uncover the secrets of her birth ... to find out where she comes from and why her past is threatening her now.

New York Times bestselling author Lili St. Crow thrilled legions of fans with her dark paranormal series Strange Angels. Now she has crafted an evocative update of Snow White, set in a vividly imagined world and populated by unforgettable new characters.


'St. Crow delivers a beautifully romantic yet creepy tale . . . The world-building is amazingly detailed, and she has built layers in both her characters and in the society they occupy. This story defies type as it's not merely a twisted fairy tale, nor is it simply another vampire love story . . . it is purely 'other' and new.' School Library Journal

'The ambitious worldbuilding and alternate history are fully thought out and well-realized, sure to enchant readers . . . A delicious treat for fairy-tale fans.' Kirkus

'A fantastical, rich and atmospheric retelling of a story at once so familiar and yet, through this different lens, is fresh, dark and contemporary. St. Crow takes core images from the story, such as mirrors and apples, and gives them a much more subtle interpretation than the children's classic. It allows her to explore broader ideas about the impossibility of eternal youth and how society values youth over age, giving the story fresh relevance.' The Hoopla

'Mesmerising and vividly real . . . Quite unlike anything I have ever encountered.' Goodreads

'Creative, dark and unique . . . Gripping.' Obsession with Books

'Cami is a wonderful heroine . . . Taut and exciting . . . I couldn't put this book down.' Read Plus

'This intense and unique re-working of the Snow White tale was an intricately woven thing of beauty – and I found myself reveling in its deliciously sweet and dark flavors . . . Full of really great, fully fleshed out characters that I fell in love with . . . An absolute joy to read.' My Book Chatter

'This is a dark fairy tale retelling that has everything! It's got witches, fairies and vampires . . . The characters are very cool and dark, much like the story. ' Mega Mad 4 Books
