Note: I received an ARC copy of this book at BEA 2014. I was not paid to write this. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I don’t know why I held off so long on reading Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis. I LOVED this book! To be honest, I’m not very familiar with the story of Snow White aside from the Disney version. It really isn’t my favorite fairytale. But I loved R.C. Lewis’s imagining of it in this sci-fi, fantasy world. Plus those drones totally stole my heart. Seriously I want in on the #DimwitFanClub!
All the elements of Snow White that I know of were there: the princess, the seven dwarfs, the queen, the huntsman, and the apple. Stitching Snow, however, really was its own story. I loved the world R.C. Lewis created, and the complexity behind the mystery of Essie and the war among the different planets. R.C. Lewis crafted such a great story line that truly kept my interest throughout each page.
Essie, as a character, was a strong heroine. I loved how she continuously fought for her own survival. She was quite crafty and resilient. I think her seven droids were a testament to that, even if Dimwit continuously needed some work.
Her romance with Dane was such a slow burn. One minute he’s possibly a bad guy and the next minute he actually really isn’t. It was so good. & I love how he also tweaked Dimwit every now and then. It made Essie so mad.
The plot was great, and I love the characters, but really Dimwit stole the show for me. I fell in love with Stitching Snow when I met Dimwit. He doesn’t always do things right, but when things matter he gets things done. He’s such an endearing drone.
Overall, I really loved reading Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis. The fact that it was a stand alone was a plus. I loved the layers to the plot, the slow building romance, and Dimwit. I definitely loved Dimwit. I may have even read the story just for Dimwit. He was too funny. :)
