Snow's Soldiers Review

Snow's Soldiers by L.C. Hibbett

Fairy Tales aren't just for children anymore...

When I was a little girl, my mother told me I was a princess, and that one day, I'd be surrounded by princes. Together, she said, my princes and I would do great things.

But that was before I knew about death, torture, or wicked stepmothers. That was before my entire world became a living hell.

Now, I'm not a child anymore, and I don't believe in bullshit like fairy tales and happy ever afters. By day, I attend the University of Freiburg. By night, I stalk the forest, searching for the monsters that stole my mother from me and ruined my life. After all these years, I didn't really expect to find them. It's not as if there are witches and charmed cottages and hot-as-hell warriors just hiding the Black Forest, am I right?

Yeah, you guessed it. I'm wrong. There's far more hiding in the shadows than I could have imagined, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Review


Snow’s Soldiers is a paranormal reverse harem novel by L.C. Hibbett. The setting is in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany during 1981. The novel is about Aria Snow, who is a feisty, tough, no-filter woman who dislikes being told what to do. Aria has been through a lot and it has soured her view of trust and has caused fear of abandonment. She might be a strong female character, but she has a reckless streak and an attitude. I will say now if you don’t like characters like that and don’t like crude language with sexual content, this isn’t the book for you. Still, if you don’t mind that or like that then keep reading this review.

A strength of this book is its characterization of Aria and her love interests. That being said, only one secondary character you get to know well is Janet. The interpersonal interactions move relevantly fast. I am not talking about the fast burn aspects of romance. The novel’s timeline takes place about a month, but some interactions seem quick. Possibly because of the lack of character development with secondary characters. An example is toward the end, this is a non-spoiler, is an interaction between Aria and Caroline. They mention they hope they get to talk more later, but it seems like how they talked to each other appeared they already knew each other. This is just a minor thing that isn’t a big deal to me, but for some people it is.

Overall, the novel’s story was enjoyable. I say this is a read that should be given a chance even if the above mentions bother you, only if plots are more important to you. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel. I got annoyed with Aria sometimes, but mostly I didn’t get agitated. I give this story a rating of 4.5, though it is a 4 as a rated because since there are no half ratings I can give it.
