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. In her enthralling debut, R.C. Lewis weaves the tale of a princess on the run from painful secrets . . . and a poisonous queen. With the galaxy's future-and her own-in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival.

I have just finished this book and to be honest the beginning was a little confusing, though, the more I read the more I liked the story. I enjoyed how our female protagonist had her own struggles that were well and alive. That she felt pulled in two different directions, I thought the conflict in the book was enjoyable too and that Essie and her partner would fight and disagree on things. Overall, I liked this book but something could be improved such as I was not a fan of the kiss at the end, however, That is MY personal opinion and I felt like it cheapened the story a bit. Even though this book is a another take on Snow-white, I felt that the ending could have been different instead of a kiss. Once again, thats my opinion.

I can't help but mentally compare this to the Lunar Chronicles series due to the similarities in the story line, but the two worlds stand in a good place independently. A very enjoyable fantasy world.

Stitching Snow starts off a bit slowly, then has a great climax and build up, and finishes off with a beautiful ending. Action, adventure, drama, inspirational loyalty, sacrifices, and a splash of romance all rolled into one, I think it’s safe to say Stitching Snow is the perfect teen read. It has a noticeable Star Wars vibe combined with the Snow White fairytale. A definite recommendation and a fascinating story. I give this 5 well-deserved stars.

This twisty realistic fairytale has definitely landed in my list of best altered stories. My favourite character is "Adorable-Dimwit-Adorable-Little"! The only thing was that I felt that Essie needed more strength in carryingout decisions. For example, there were so many times where she would say "I should...........( one time it was) apologize for snapping at Dane" but she never does. The humour, wit and realism made up for it, though.

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.
