Review by: Astilbe
My name is Snow and I am a wererabbit. I was born a bunny and thought my fate was to live and die in a lab until a vampire saved me. Now I am fourteen and I’ve just rescued a teenage werewolf named Josh from scientists who have been experimenting with a terrible serum which takes away the ability to shift.
We need to find the people who took him; discover who they are working for and what they are planning so we can stop them.
The road ahead is scary, full of twists and a new love. But no one ever said becoming a hero was easy…
Being a teenage shifter is a lot harder than it may seem to be.
It was interesting to see how the romance between Snow and Josh has been developing since their adventures began. They’re both very young and innocent characters. I’ve had a good time watching them slowly figure out how to be boyfriend and girlfriend while they were also dealing with so many other things going on in their lives at the same time.
There were a few minor pacing issues in the beginning due to the narrator explaining the characters’ pasts. While these explanations were necessary, I would have preferred to see some of the less crucial ones being put off until the plot had a chance to take off. As someone who already knew everything Snow was telling us, I was eager to see what she’d get up to next. Even a few more juicy hints about her current predicament would have kept me satisfied while Snow explained the rest of the backstory to readers who were brand new to this world.
The dialogue was playful and nicely done. I especially liked seeing how Snow spoke to all of the people helping her. There were some incredibly funny exchanges at a few different points in the plot. The fact that I wasn’t expecting them to show up in those particular scenes made them even more amusing than they might have been otherwise.
This is the second book in a series. It can be read on its own or out of order, although I would suggest checking out Snowball as well if you liked this story or want to know more about Snow’s origins.
I’d recommend Snow Bunny to anyone who enjoys shifter tales.
