True love is a myth.
A trick.
A way to subdue the heroine and take everything from her.

Winter Snow
My "true love" conspired with my stepmother to have me killed and stole my throne.

But they failed.

I've been in hiding and refining my vengeance. I'm no longer the damsel they mistook me for once upon a time. I'm coming for them. And my kingdom, too.

Sizzling Snow White and the Huntsman post zombie apocalypse!

This was a very strange and somewhat wonderful post apocalyptic world. It is Earth broken up into sectors, there were some American cities mentioned that I recognized so it is in the not to distant future, but much of the human race has been decimated by the zombie virus, though some communities of humans do still survive.

However this Sinister Fairy Tale centers around wolf shifters, who are immune to the virus. Though Zombies still can

This was such a great read and I was glued from the second I picked this up reading this in one sitting.
This author consistently delivers and is now a definite one-click for me.
This one is set in the same world as Andorra Sector and is also in the sinister fairy tales series but is also a complete unrelated standalone and can be read as such.
It’s a loose Snow White retelling that is set in a dystopian omegaverse future complete with wolf-shifters.

For the first time in what feels a long time, mainly due to the uncertain times in which we presently live, I have read a book that I just didn't want to put down. A book that drew me totally and profoundly into it's world, had me utterly entranced with every word, had me battling between the need to read quickly and find out what would happen next with stretching out the experience and time with the characters for as long as possible.

From the blurb I was expecting a far less battle-ready Snow/W

Winter's Arrow is an incredibly delicious retelling of Snow White set in the Omegaverse and I was hooked on its ever word! Snow was the princess of Winter Sector, the rightful heir, and the last member of her family's line. When her parents died, she was left in the care of a female Alpha, one who took care of her despite her Beta shortcomings. However, not everything was all smiles and rainbows in the kingdom. Something was wrong. Snow overheard a murder plot. Her caregiver wanted to kill her. ...more

Winter's Arrow is book 3 in the X-Clan Series and it's a retelling of Snow White. Snow/Winter was raised a Beta by her evil stepmother although she's actually an Omega. When she overhears her stepmother and future mate discussing her killing she knows she has to flee. At the same time she stops taking the strength pills that she doesn't realize are actually suppressants. This sends her into heat and luckily Alpha Kazek from the Norse Sector is there to help which leads to him mating her. I reall ...more

Lexi’s books are always SUCH A JOY to read and this dark romance was no exception! I haven’t read book 1 and 2 in the series yet, this book can be read as a stand-alone imo, so I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on them as well, hopefully soon.

Highly recommend it if you’re into paranormal dark romance and aren’t afraid of things getting a bit rough and intense ;)

Little Warning; some parts in the book can be a trigger if you don’t like reading about mishandling and submissiveness. Ev

This is not your fairytale of Snow White, this is dark retelling. It was very delicious though. The author is new to me, but I really enjoyed the imagery and the story she told. I was shocked and yet engaged in the story. Kaz and Winter were a great couple. Their love unfolds in the omega universe kingdom that partakes in sexual rituals and open kinkiness. It's a trip. You should read it.

I never wanted this to end! We’re back in the X-Clan / Zombie Year 2099 universe where humans are scarce and Alphas rule sectors. This is a post-apocalyptic Snow White retelling that’s dark, sexy and so very addictive.

Snow Frost, Princess of Winter Sector discovers her fiancé is planning to murder her on her wedding night. With the help of her seven most trusted Betas she sneaks on board a plane and escapes to Norse Sector.

This baby was a surprise. A totally pleasant one, but it definitely made me sit up and go “Hey” It also had me going “WTF?!?!” a couplefew times, but I definitely got behind this retelling of Snow White. Everything from our MC’s, to the world building and all the way down to the Seven Dwarves had me getting lost in the story until the very end.

Snow/Winter and Kazek were definitely a pair, a pair I ended up really liking in the end, but boy did these two have quite a journey to t

Winter's Arrow, the latest addition to the Sinister Fairytale collection, is a dark retelling of Snow White from a shifter slant and I was hooked from beginning to end. This tale was a paranormal/dystopian/omegaverse story and it was fast paced and action-packed filled with drama, secrets, lies, mystery, suspense betrayal and so much more. The relationship between Winter and Kazek was hott and intense but they both had some serious communication issues to work out, and the author did a great job ...more

Winter's Arrow is the first story I've read by Lexi C. Cross. For the story to be shapeshifters set in the post-apocalyptic world, it was really freaking good! This usually isn't my go to genre (sorry the only zombies I'm used to are the ones associated with the White Walkers)but this author wrote the story extremely well where I was hooked from the moment Kazek and Winter met the second time.

I found it to be an extremely hot read. The push and pull, the fighting and resistance between these tw

4.5 Stars / 5 Steam Fans

Winter's Arrow was the paranormal fairytale retelling that I needed! The story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves flipped on its end with this story. Snow is a captured princess that gets away from her evil stepmother. Was Snow's escape toward the enemy or toward the life she was always supposed to have? I was dragged in and gripped to the point I devoured this in almost one sitting, and I ran out to get the other books within the series.

Absolutely adore this world that this author has created. It started with Andorra Sector, went into X-Clan: The Experiment and now we have this little beauty, Winter’s Arrow.

All wolves, a few zombies and a whole lot of steam, grit and tension. Not to mention a gorgeous backdrop.

I get really frustrated with shifter stories. They tend to have pretty much the same storylines running through them but this world, with the element of zombies, really one ups a lot of books out there. I mean it’s not a

This was my first book from this author and I have to say that I was hooked from the first chapter!! I haven't read many books with shifters so this was such a unique retelling of Snow White.
We have a strong heroine, Snow. An alpha, Kaz, who will keep you on your toes and sizzling passion.
I thoroughly loved the writing, the character development and the whole Wolf hierarchy. The book was engaging and I absolutely adored the twists and turns.

Winters Arrow is a brilliant read. This is not a genre I normally read and I’m so glad I took the chance to read it. Once I started this I was hooked from start to finish. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.

It’s part of the Sinister Fairytales collection. It most definitely can be read as a stand-alone. A fabulous well written retelling of Snow White.

A dark and delicious retelling of Snow White shifter style.

Snow is on the run after she discovers some disturbing news about what is suppose to happen to her on her wedding night. Little does she know that her world will be turned upside down by the alpha who will stake his claim.

Dangerous and sexy Kazek is the perfect alpha for the sassy, strong willed Winter.

Secrets are revealed and lies exposed testing Kaz and Winter's relationship. Twists and turns lurking in every corner.

I have enjoyed the last few books of the Sinister Fairy Tales Collection……this one…not so much.
This book is different than most books I read.

You have alphas, omegas, betas.
You have betrayal and secrets.
You have action and violence.
You have sex.

But….nothing held my attention.

This book just was not for me. It might be fo you, but not me. I just could not stay focused reading it. There were many times I wanted to DNF, but I always keep going.

Lexi C. Foss is a new to me author... and after finishing Winter's Arrow it can be said that this author will be on my * to watch out for* list!

About Winter's Arrow:

Winter's Arrow by Lexi C. Foss is one of many fairy tale retellings in the Sinister Fairy Tale Collection. This novel is dark and deliciously dangerous. It's a retelling of snow white and the seven dwarfs, only this version is based on shifter's and sexy as sin mating rituals.

Overall, I did enjoy Winter’s Arrow by Lexi C Foss, but I also had a lot of issues with the story. This is my first LCF book, but it won’t be my last as Winter’s Arrow is actually the third book in a series- but I believe them to be interconnected stand-alone novels- so they can be read without knowledge of the other books- which is what I did.

The book was a bit of a toss up for me, it’s a bit of a roller coaster, but not the fun kind. The beginning was a bit boring, and right as the action sta

When Princess Snow overhears a plot to kill her by her stepmother and fiancé, she runs right into the dominating arms of Alpha Kazek. To save her life, he mates and claims her, and becomes her King. Now all they have to do is go claim her throne and deal with the traitors who want her dead. Along the way, they fall in love and she comes into her own all while learning the art of submission.

Another installment of the Sinister Fairy Tales and this one was Snow White's turn.

I really liked the way the author incorporated elements of the original Snow White into this book. Snow Frost is the princess in the Winter Sector. She has been under the Alpha Queen of Mirrors rules since her parent's passing. Being groomed to the good little Beta to her future Alpha husband until Snow learns of the plots that are in place for her future.

A confession- I am not a fantasy romance lover. Certain things about fantasy romance just stops me from falling in love with this genre. BUT Lexi C. Foss just blew through my mental blocks and may have converted me into a fan! This dark, twisted and supernatural retelling of Snow White was unexpectedly amazing.

She weaves an incredible tale that sucks you in and you just can't stop reading her books until you have finished every single one! Ive lost plenty of sleep over her books, which I'm not at all complaining about!

Winter’s Arrow was a first for me from this author. It is not usually my genre of choice, but I was intrigued with the blurb, basically Snow White and her seven guardians mix with a shifter romance. I generally like shifter stories, but this one was also set in a post-apocalyptic, dystopian future with elements of shifters and zombies. Generally stating, not my favorite type of read, but I soldiered on.

The world is now set up as sectors and Snow White, ahem, sorry, Snow Frost of Winter controls
