Upcoming Release: Nameless by Lili St. Crow

The first book in Lili St. Crow’s new series Tales of Beauty and Madness (isn’t that an awesome series’ title?) sounds pretty great.

A dark and eerie retelling of Snow White from Lili St. Crow, New York Times bestselling author of the Strange Angels
series.

Sixteen-year-old Camille doesn’t remember her life before she was adopted by the powerful Vultusino family—the missing childhood years that left her scarred and silent. Now she lives a life
of luxury, protected by the supernatural Mafia Vultusinos, specially Nico, her adopted brother.

But Cami knows that she is not really Family. She is a mortal with a past that lies buried in trauma. And it’s not until a mysterious boy approaches her and reveals scars of his own that Cami begins
to uncover the secrets of her past . . . to find out where she comes from and what danger she now finds herself in.

Two reasons I’m excited for Nameless:

1. Human minority. The summary doesn’t exactly say what the Mafia Vultusinos are, but they’re obviously not mortal. Dwarves they are not.  Or at least not just dwarves.

2. Snow White: I’m pretty fond of this tale, and the most recent reimagining I’ve watched was Mirror Mirror, so reading a creepier approach sounds like a good change of pace.

It’s quite awhile ’til the release of Nameless, April 4th of 2013, but I’m hoping it’ll be one worth the wait.

    Mafia? Wow. Really? Fantastic spin.

    I loved Mirror Mirror.

    Do you watch Once Upon a Time?

    Not usually too happy about the prospect of these type of re-writes but I have to admit this both looks and sounds good.

    Agreed on the title…definitely a fab choice and that cover is rather lovely as well! Ahh, another Snow White retell…curious as these things can go either way on the “good” meter. Will be interested to see how it pans out. Thanks for sharing!

    That does sound like a fun one. Love the series title and the cover has just the elements I want to see in a Snow White retelling.

    I am looking forward to this one too. I love Lili St.Corw , have read the Strange Angels series, but I had a lot of trouble with The Iron Wyrm Affair….I am not sure why.

    This sounds creepy yet exciting. Sad about the ling wait. My WOW has a book that takes a new twist on the undead and mortals as well.
