A true treasure. I was held captive from beginning to end.

A wonderful Snow White adaptation with plenty of action, romance, a somewhat prickly Snow White and the best take on the seven dwarves ever. Also: cage-fighting. Yes.

This is Snow White taken to a new level. With great suspense and lovely little 7 "dwarfs".

I absolutely adored this book! Essie is such a strong, female character. I feel like young girls everywhere can look up to her. The twist at the end was executed subtly and tastefully and the writing was well done.

An inventive re-imagining of the Snow White tell, “Stitching Snow” gives us a feisty, hard-bitten heroine who is a genius at coding computers and technology, tough enough to fight off hard-drinking minors and adept at hiding her identity for eight long years. Essie is a terrific creation, acerbic, wary and scrappy, who takes no guff from anyone and is sure to appeal to those who like robust female characters.

This is an incredible story filled with action, adventure, fighting, politics, deception, space travel and enough tech-talk to impress any steampunk or computer nerd. For myself, I often found the technical aspects of the novel too difficult to comprehend and skimmed over them to get to the meat of the scene. However, they are part and parcel of what makes this familiar tale so riveting, new and fresh. “Stitching Snow” is so brilliantly reworked from its fairy tale origins so that it doesn’t seem like the Grimm tale at all; only little touches—seven clanks, a poisoned necklace, shoes that catch on fire—remind you of its origins. I’d recommend this for anyone who likes their fairy tales liberally mixed up with modernistic touches.

I was slightly skeptical coming in, as I am not a huge fan of stories where girl must save the world with boy in hand. But, as I saw from the very first page, this wasn't what I was getting into. From the first page with our hero in a cage fight, I was taken away to the world inside the book, and did not leave it till I finished it. I fully recommend this book, and can not wait to read more from this author.

It's a nice entertaining story, nothing too complex. Essie, her life and her drones are the most interesting things in the book. It's a relatively clean sci-fi book (with some adult themes that were hinted at) that can be read by a younger audience.

Fairy tale meets sci-fi. Imagine Star Wars with a steampunk princess twist. Recommended.
