Camille
Over ten years ago I got the idea for writing a romance where the love interest is trapped in a mirror. I found the concept thoroughly intriguing, but after several attempts to come up with a plot, I realized it wasn’t time to tell that story. I’m so thrilled that, many years later, I’ve finally found the perfect way to share my initial idea—as a retelling of Snow White. This book was both extremely fun to write as I explored how a romance between a magic mirror would play out, while also being ...more

Reflection...what a great title for this Snow White retelling. I loved how the author captured that title so perfectly throughout the whole book. I was scanning through my highlights and came across a quote that I loved and thought would show you all a little glimpse of this gem of a novel.

~That was when seeing my reflection had become almost painful. A room like this with hundreds of mirrors represented hundreds of reminders that I didn't measure up. I half expected Drake to laugh. But he didn'

This book started out a bit rocky for me but I was so intrigued by the man in the mirror and the developing relationship there that I kept reading. I think the beginning felt like it was spinning in one place too long. The same sentiments and situations were reiterated over and over. Rhea and Drake literally had the same conversations. I was getting frustrated with Rhea. But then it started moving. Thank goodness. The plot began to build more and more and I could feel the intensity ramping up fo ...more

This book is a really loose retelling of Snow White. It was such a loose retelling that it took me a while to even figure out what fairy tale inspired the story in this book (the story was also giving me a lot of Frog Prince vibes as well). The looseness of the retelling didn't bother me since this author's whole series has been really loose fairy tale retellings, so that is to be expected.

Because the retelling was so loose, it was able to take the story in some really interesting directions an

Rhea & Drake's story.
This one was a bit long winded in my opinion. While I enjoyed the riveting adventure, I feel the conclusion could have come much quicker.
I guess almost immediately the relationship between Drake & Briar. While we see Drake's curse, being trapped in a mirror, we never learn of Briar's curse. Which I found odd.
Rhea was spurned by Aiden in book 1. However, this is her story. She finally learned to let the past go and embrace the strong woman she was!

She's done it again! I couldn't put it down. The whole Kingdom Chronicles series has been amazing but I think this one was my favorite so far. Camille Peters books hook you from chapter 1, you feel as if you're part of that world. You laugh, you cry, you get emotionally attached to these characters. I love how I get to reconnect with characters from the previous books and see how their stories are unfolding. The books in this series always leave me feeling content with a happy ending but with li ...more

I was so excited for this book!! It was nothing like I expected, but I loved every minute of it. It was so fun and captivating of a story line, I saw bits and pieces of lots of story books intricately woven into something different, something unique. I really couldn't guess the ending, it really could have turned out multiple ways, but I did have hope...

Spectacular book! One of my favorites for this year!

Another great read from this series! The characters we love are back and better than ever! So far my favorite in this series! It’s time for Princess Rhea to tell her tale and what a powerful one it was! Just finished it and already anxious for the next story!!

Wow, I was not expecting to enjoy this so much! I'll admit it took a shamefully long time for me to read this-- I read it when it first came out but never finished it. Anyway, this time around I was able to be fully invested in the story, and now I am on pins and needles waiting for book five to come out!

Princess Rhea was a sweet character from the first book, but we can really appreciate her personality here! I loved that her arc has a theme of self-worth in the "not measuring up" vein. She was

Ohh I absolutely love it sooo much, this was a beautiful, poewerful, magical and romantic story. I adored it.
Rhea was a insecure girl who missed self love and Drake was a grumpy man, together they not only find each other l, but they find them selves. Rhea becomes a powerful strong and confident woman and saves Drake in so many ways, just as he saves her.
I am soo proud of Rhea and happy for her, she found her own worth and love at last
The storyline of Liam was heartbreaking and I needed to put

Though this book may have been inspired by Snow White, it certainly isn’t in any way a retelling of the famous fairy tale. There are a couple of common elements, but the core story is completely original (I love that the author created her own story instead of retreading through the usual set up). Even though this is book 4 in the series, this can be read as a stand-alone. But you’d get greater enjoyment of it after reading the previous books in the series. Prince Dedric from the first book make ...more

As of today, 12/25/19, I haven't finished this book. Not because it's not interesting, but because I am incredibly frustrated with the book. ***Possible spoilers in this review***

I have liked it a little better than the previous book in the series, because the plot is more than the characters having sweet romantic moments for the entire book. However, Reflection is way too long and slow. If there were more exciting things happening at the beginning, the length wouldn't bother me, but I found mys

My favorite Camille Peters novel so far! I received an ARC of this fabulous tale and thoroughly enjoyed the journey of Princess Rhea. The KINGDOM CHRONICLES are fairytale retellings that work as stand alone stories, but also connect and best enjoyed if read in order. Major characters in one novel will show up in other books and minor characters will appear/become main characters in others. I love that concept -similar to Melanie Dickerson, Melanie Cellier, or K.M Shea's fairytale retellings.

Powerful book with love and truth

While a delightful story of magic and love. There was a deep underlying message about learning to believe in yourself. Rheana negative thoughts nearly ruined her happiness. Fortunately she learned what it means to love another and be brave enough to stand up against those who would hold her back from becoming all she was meant to be. I found so many powerful parallels and precious quotes from this book that I can share and apply in my life. It's wonderful when a

I was very excited to receive this ARC. I love fairy tale retellings and this one did not disappoint. While there were a couple of spelling errors, nothing completely atrocious. My only negative comment is that I figured out the plot within the first 3 chapters. But I love the way Camille writes and I truly enjoy all of her books. I highly recommend this book if you like fairy tales.

Sorry

I love the concept of the story . The writing was good, but the story was slow and some bits were very repetitive. And the villian and their method of hurting the crown prince was obvious, but the protagonist didn’t guess it until the very end?! I did like Rhea’s character because her self doubt was realistic. I love how the author described the orchard and the outdoors.

Every time I start one of Camille Peters' books, I do not realize how deeply I will fall in love with the characters and their stories. I think the author has a true gifting for writing characters with relatable heart struggles and truly fantastic relationships.

I will start with Rhea. I have loved each previous heroine, but I was not aware that Rhea would become the most dear to my heart. The reason being that I can relate to her. Rhea struggles with a low opinion of herself, toxic self-talk, an

Rhea is a reflection (excuse the pun) of a struggle many of us are intimately familiar with: feeling like we're not enough. Whether this be good enough to follow our dreams, pretty/witty/smart enough for a romantic interest, talented enough for a job or position, fighting the whispering doubts of low self-esteem seems to practically be a hallmark of the human condition. It's a battle many women in particular can relate to. And that's exactly why this novel is worth reading: Rhea is a fairytale s ...more

3 stars is a bit generous, but 2 is far too stingy. Here's what I liked: Her take on Snow White is creative and unique, it barely felt like a retelling of Snow White, I actually thought it was closer to an inverse of Beauty and the Beast, so there was so much that was her own plot and planning. And the bones of the plot were decent.

What I didn't like: The heroine was whiny. She was self-absorbed while trying to be selfless?
The author used the same phrase "A sliver of hope" at least 3 times, and

The author did a wonderful job of delicately, yet accurately, tackling a subject of mental health. The main character suffers from some pretty severe anxiety. That anxiety causes her to subconsciously find coping mechanisms such as perfectionism. She tries to hide it, but suffers greatly internally. The book beautifully handles her journey to work through those anxieties and her "dark thoughts" that hound her every move. I love how the author handled the journey, including the need to talk it ou ...more

I have faithfully read all of Peters books since this series started. I will admit I thought the first few had some issues but Peters continues to work on plot with every book and this is the first one I really felt deserved 5 stars. It was a page turner and I enjoyed watching all the twists with Rhea and Drake. While portions dragged a little in the middle overall this series has grown leaps and bounds! Rhea in particular was great heroine. I didn't feel she was a pushed over like previous MC's ...more

I loved the relationship between Drake and Rhea, their interactions were my favorite parts, but Rhea's lack of trust in Drake and all the angst in the second half really hurt the book for me. I understand why she tried to make things work with Briar and why up until the last minute they were going to get married, but the heartache and angst with that was too much. ...more

This was such a powerful tale. Not only did I love reading a retelling of Snow White with the love interest as the magic mirror, but I really related to Princess Rheanna’s struggles to see her self worth. Her journey of loving herself and falling in love with Drake was beautifully written and really touched me on a personal level.

The beginning was interesting, but the entire story is just boring.

Definitely my favorite Snow White stories ever. I laughed and cried, screamed and bawled, giggled and yelled. As you can see it made me emotional. My favorite part was the fact that he sees her better than she sees herself.

This is my favorite book of the series so far! (FYI, I am halfway through book 6 "Voyage" which I am enjoying very much.) But this story was dynamic, realistic, romantic, and had several unexpected twists and turns in the plot. It was much less formulaic or predictable than the other stories, and the love story was original and engaging. I personally identified with the main character and her self-esteem issues, as many young girls experience similar emotions. The main character is easy to see o ...more
