about

New York Times bestselling author Lili St. Crow thrilled legions of fans with her dark paranormal series Strange Angels. Now she has crafted an evocative update of Snow White, set in a vividly imagined world and populated by unforgettable new characters.

When Camille was six years old, she was discovered alone in the snow by Enrico Vultusino, godfather of the Seven—the powerful Families that rule magic-ridden New Haven. Papa Vultusino adopted the mute, scarred child, naming her after his dead wife and raising her in luxury on Haven Hill alongside his own son, Nico.

Now Cami is turning sixteen. She’s no longer mute, though she keeps her faded scars hidden under her school uniform, and though she opens up only to her two best friends, Ruby and Ellie, and to Nico, who has become more than a brother to her. But even though Cami is a pampered Vultusino heiress, she knows that she is not really Family. Unlike them, she is a mortal with a past that lies buried in trauma. And it’s not until she meets the mysterious Tor, who reveals scars of his own, that Cami begins to uncover the secrets of her birth…to find out where she comes from and why her past is threatening her now.

Lili St. Crow is the author of the Strange Angels series for young adults and the Dante Valentine series, among others, for adults. She lives in Vancouver, Washington with her family. Visit lilistcrow.com to find out more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nameless (Tales of Beauty & Madness #1) by Lili St. Crow, Lilith Saintcrow I really am torn as to what rating to give this book. It's an interesting concept, I loved the writing. However, after having finished the story, I still have no idea what the big reveal is and what it means, the book is that confusing. So, excellent writing, excellent atmosphere, interesting characters, wtf-world building, and a plot that makes my head spin. This is supposed to be a retelling of Snow White; if so, there must be a pretty big wiggle room for writers' creativity.Despite my preference for light reads that do not make me think, I do enjoy the challenges of a complex book, and I like to think I'm not so far beyond overlooking the obvious. I don't need everything spelled out for me, but there are books in which it's necessary for the author to let the reader know the world into which they're being plunged into. It is not necessary to do so in a verbose and Dickensian manner. I've had enough of A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations from 10th grade AP English to last me a lifetime, thank you very much, but I do appreciate a good description. I love exploring new worlds, and when the author has seen fit to define a new genre

Editorial Reviews

"The ambitious worldbuilding and alternate history are fully thought out and well-realized, sure to enchant readers...A delicious treat for fairy-tale fans." -- Kirkus"St. Crow delivers a beautifully romantic yet creepy tale. ... The world-building is amazingly detailed, and she has built layers in both her characters and in the society they occupy. This story defies type as it’s not merely a twisted fairy tale, nor is it simply another vampire love story… it is purely 'other' and 'new.'" -- SLJ
