  • Arabesque By Hayden Thorne An ambitious young princess, Ulrike, turns to the dark arts in order to become queen despite her younger sister s warnings of a fatal consequence to mortgaging her soul She succeeds, yet Ulrike finds herself trapped in a hateful marriage, her mind slowly being devoured by her powers, while conceiving and giving birth to a boy.Alarick the bastard prince becomes the courtAn ambitious young princess, Ulrike, turns to the dark arts in order to become queen despite her younger sister s warnings of a fatal consequence to mortgaging her soul She succeeds, yet Ulrike finds herself trapped in a hateful marriage, her mind slowly being devoured by her powers, while conceiving and giving birth to a boy.Alarick the bastard prince becomes the court s favorite object of mockery because of the scandal of his conception, his mother s spiraling madness compounding his ordeal When Alarick falls in love with a childhood friend, Roald von Thiessen, the added sin of an unnatural romance gets caught up in a tumultuous aristocratic environment that s rife with hypocrisy, cruelty, betrayal, and murder.Forcibly separated from each other during a bloody uprising, Roald and Alarick become helplessly ensnared in nightmarish adventures designed to twist their characters and destroy their minds in the process The young lovers fight for their souls and a way back to each other in a world weighed down by the forces of dark and light magic, and where gods grapple with each other over mortal destinies.Arabesque is a gothic, homoerotic retelling of the Snow White folktale, set in a darkly decadent, alternate Europe.

    I wanted to love this book A dark fantasy retelling of Snow White featuring a beautiful boy who falls in love with another boy I was so there.But the style didn t agree with me The narrative made me feel faintly patronized it insisted on explaining things I already understood Omniscient narrative sometimes lends itself to this kind of heavy handedness, but I ve seen it done with humor, playfulness, and self irony before, so I know that s possible Also, while I read books mainly for the story, I [...]

    I did not in any way expect the artistry I found in this book It is sophisticated without being complicated, and it has no artifice because it does not need it The sex is almost sweet, and yet it is there, subtle and understated The book is dark as well, and Thorne pushes her characters to the limits.The writing in this book is extraordinary Honestly, I was completely blown away Voice, pacing, tone, character, setting everything is here.And I was incredibly humbled by this book because I think i [...]

    A dark, homoerotic retelling of Snow White Contains a decadent and opaque writing style that is not for everyone, but captures the long, arduous journey of self discovery that can be bleak and painful, full of mistakes and regret, until the ultimate and cathartic awakening.
