Spotlight on the Handsomely Huntsman of Snow White Fame


The Huntsman. You all know him as the guy hired by the evil witch to kill Snow White. But in the midst of the dirty deed, our fickle assassin experiences a change of heart and can’t go through with it. He’s overcome with emotions. Why? Because he realizes he has fallen in love…sigh sigh. That being said the poor huntsman literally loses his heart as a result. In the television version, the evil witch, who we figure is more than just a bit sweet on our unintentional heroic villain guy, snatches his heart out and casts a spell on him. It all sounds like the ultimate sacrifice for love, right? Snow White is a tragic, but highly addictive love story that has transcended time again and again. The tale sends writers rushing to their writing stations to rewrite their own version of the story all the time. And lately, movie producers have jumped on the huntsman as hero bandwagon, giving us living breathing retellings complete with big budget frills. For me, the most exciting part is seeing one of my new favorite fictional guys spring to mouth-watering life. Hehehe As part of the Fairytale Blog Hop hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer and vvb32reads, I’m excited to be doing something a little different. I’m giving away a copy of Waking Rose, a Fairy Tale Retold by Regina Doman. This is an outstanding book! I’m not one who generally goes for retold fairy tales, but this one is different. You’ll see.
Description from goodreads: "I love him more than poetry... I love him more than song." Ever since he rescued her from Certain Death, Rose Brier has had a crush on Ben Denniston, otherwise known as Fish. But Fish, struggling with problems of his own, thinks that Rose should go looking elsewhere for a knight in shining armor. Trying to forget him, Rose goes to college, takes up with a sword-wielding band of brothers, and starts an investigation into her family's past that proves increasingly mysterious. Then a tragic accident occurs, and Fish, assisted by Rose's new friends, finds himself drawn into a search through a tangle of revenge and corruption that might be threatening Rose's very life. The climax is a crucible of fear, fight, and fire that Fish must pass through to reach Rose and conquer his dragons. To win, simply fill out the rafflecopter found below this post. Now, I leave you with pictures of my favorite two huntsmen. Have fun and Enjoy!
