Snow White Trilogy: Book 1 now published!

We are so happy to announce that Salla Simukka’s YA thriller As Red as Blood (Punainen kuin veri, Tammi 2013) has been published in Finland this week! This is the first book in the anticipated Snow White Trilogy. Publication of the second installment As White as Snow (Valkea kuin lumi)  and third installment As Black as Ebony (Musta kuin eebenpuu) are planned for Fall 2013 and Spring 2014.

Snow White Trilogy depicts the thrilling events in 17-year-old Lumikki Andersson’s life: in book one she stumbles upon a money laundering operation in her school’s darkroom and is swept into a whirlpool of unpredictable events. And nothing is as red against white snow as blood.

Not everyone lives happily ever after.

Bloggers have fallen in love with As Red as Blood and describe it as an exceptionally well-written book that engages both young and adult readers. “Simukka writes so fluently and convincingly that it makes you thirst for more.” Read here the whole review (in Finnish).
