Nuovi romanzi che rivisitano favole: Stitching Snow e Cruel Beauty

La moda di scrivere romanzi utilizzando le favole della nostra infanzia non sembra essersi affievolita…probabilmente complice il cinema che la stà supportando con l’uscita di sempre nuovi film dal tema simile o specificatamente tale (vedi La Bella e La Bestia attualmente nelle sale con Vincent Cassel e Léa Seydoux).
Comunque stà di fatto che, essendo io particolarmente interessata a questo genere, già dai primi giorni dell’anno ho addocchiato un paio di nuove uscite…una già in vendita l’altra con una pubblicazione prevista per ottobre. Entrambi, mi spiace dirlo, sono al momento solo in lingua (uno per ovvie ragioni no?). Comunque ve li segnalo comunque, se anche voi come me siete apassionati. 😉

Il primo è una rivisitazione proprio de La Bella e la Bestia ed è quello già in vendita…

Cruel Beauty
Rosamund Hodge

Graceling meets Beauty and the Beast in this sweeping fantasy about one girl’s journey to fulfill her destiny and the monster who gets in her way-by stealing her heart.
Based on the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, Cruel Beauty is a dazzling love story about our deepest desires and their power to change our destiny.
Since birth, Nyx has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom -all because of a foolish bargain struck by her father. And since birth, she has been in training to kill him.
With no choice but to fulfill her duty, Nyx resents her family for never trying to save her and hates herself for wanting to escape her fate. Still, on her seventeenth birthday, Nyx abandons everything she’s ever known to marry the all-powerful, immortal Ignifex. Her plan? Seduce him, destroy his enchanted castle, and break the nine-hundred-year-old curse he put on her people.
But Ignifex is not at all what Nyx expected. The strangely charming lord beguiles her, and his castle-a shifting maze of magical rooms-enthralls her.
As Nyx searches for a way to free her homeland by uncovering Ignifex’s secrets, she finds herself unwillingly drawn to him. Even if she could bring herself to love her sworn enemy, how can she refuse her duty to kill him? With time running out, Nyx must decide what is more important: the future of her kingdom, or the man she was never supposed to love.

Il secondo è una rivisitazione di Biancaneve ed uscirà ad ottobre per Disney Hyperion…

Stitching Snow
R.C. Lewis

Princess Snow is missing.
Her home planet is filled with violence and corruption at the hands of King Matthias and his wife as they attempt to punish her captors. The king will stop at nothing to get his beloved daughter back—but that’s assuming she wants to return at all.
Essie has grown used to being cold. Temperatures on the planet Thanda are always sub-zero, and she fills her days with coding and repairs for the seven loyal drones that run the local mines.
When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realizes that Dane’s arrival was far from accidental, and she’s pulled into the heart of a war she’s risked everything to avoid. With the galaxy’s future—and her own—in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival.
