Fantasy meets erotica. A twisted Snow White retelling. Zareena is hoping to escape her abusive husband. When she disappears into the night she finds herself in a magical land. Now she must navigate the truth and lies of the mythical creatures to reach The Purple Castle.

This story is about the leaders of communities Zareena meets on the way. It has a lot of explicit content and the story is creative. It feels like it has a few fairytales twisted into the plot rather than just one.

So, I have only read two authors who redid fairy tales and I am very very skeptical about authors redoing fairy tales since Disney started making real movies from animated movies. I have to say, Quinn Slater did NOT disappoint me! This book was awesome revision of Snow White. Erotic fairy tale doesn't come close to his writing of sex scenes! HOLY HOLY Hotness!! I can't say anymore without spoiling it. Just read the book! You won't be disappointed!

This story was full of twists and lots of fantastic creatures. I listened to this book on Audible and that is where it took a not so good turn for me. The narrator did her best to sound mystical and alluring, but she fell short. If I had read the story instead of listened, I may have given it 5 stars. There were moments that I felt lost with so many different characters and encounters, but in the end the story was magical and enchanting. When I listen to a story, I'm looking for the escape into ...more

This isn't my typical one click, but I wanted to see what all the hype was about. I can honestly say, Quinn Slater, well done sir. Wow, you did not disappoint! I'm not one for dropping spoilers, and won't start now However, this book was a delight to read. It was fun, sexy, hot and a great story line. The characters were well outlined as well as the story. Quinn took me on a magical adventure, where at some points I couldn't put it down. From the time I started til the time I finished, I wanted ...more

It was an interesting story and something that I did not expect. Zarenna had an interesting journey and not all parts were my cup of tea. If you are into fantasy worlds then this would be a good choice. I finished the book and wasn’t disappointed.

The narration could have been better for me. I ended up speeding it up to 1.25 and that helped. The narrator spoke slow and her voice was somewhat childlike for me. It may have fit with the scene the story was trying to set but made it somewhat hard to

A quite interesting story of a sexual awakening.

Zareena decides she's finished this chapter of her life. No more abuse from her sad sack of a husband. She sheds her clothes and walks into the forest looking for the new land she was told would be on the other side. Follow this erotic journey of discovery with her and find out how she changes herself, inside and out! Your eyes will be opened and horizons broadened.

I gave three stars based on creativity and the fact that there was so much openness in reference to sexuality with these characters. I didn’t really get the parallel to Snow White, but it was definitely different. This was my first time reading this author and unfortunately I didn’t enjoy the writing as much as I had anticipated.

Some things are not as they seem...

Quinn Slayer has a unique way of telling a story. I laughed out loud at some of the synonyms he uses. "Offering" being a prime example. A sexual exploration of a woman.

First book I've read by him and I want more! The imagination that went into this is phenomenal. It's kind of like the wizard of oz meets a grown up version of snow white. Hard to explain, but it was amazing! The descriptions made you feel like you part of it. This book is 🔥🔥. Loved it!💜💜

Unlike anything I’ve ever read but definitely a good read. Sensual and unique and it kept me intrigued throughout. I didn’t get the reference to Snow White but I still enjoyed it.

Holy hell! What a ride! Quinn does not disappoint when it comes to sex scenes *fans self*. Wow. A weaver of stories that leave you hot and bothered. I love a book that makes you question things and opens your mind to different things, that's what this book did for me! A must read!!!

I do not believe in leaving spoilers in a review. I believe that you should read a review, let it pull you in and then you go discover the story details for yourself.

Very different than anything I've previously read. This stories characters are very open sexually & very much into exploring different kinks. Great story, I have so many questions! I love a standalone that leaves me questioning what's next. You get the satisfaction of a full story but are left with curiosity about the future. It wa
