Praise and publication news for Salla Simukka’s Snow White Trilogy!

SimukkaJun2015This year marks the publication of the final entry in author Salla Simukka’s Snow White Trilogy, As Black as Ebony (Tammi 2014), in several territories. Simukka, whose YA thriller trilogy has been sold in more than 50 countries, continues to draw international acclaim.

Hot Key Books in the UK and Amazon/Skyscape in the U.S. will publish As Black as Ebony in August. That month Simukka will also appear at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. See here for more information.

In late May As Red As Blood was included on The Booklist Reader‘s list of The 100 Best Children’s and YA Mysteries of the Past 10 Years.

“Lumikki, who calls herself the ”secret love child of Hercule Poirot and Lisbeth Salander,” tries to avoid meddling in other people’s business. That is, until she finds bloodied money in her art school’s darkroom.”
The Booklist Reader

New international praise for The Snow White Trilogy:

“Lumikki is the embodiment of a female empowerment fantasy while still containing familiar elements. As a reader you’ll want to meet her again. As soon as possible.”
Buch + Maus (“Book and Mouse”) culture publication, Germany (on As Red as Blood)

“I adore the fact that [Simukka] has interwoven the Snow White and the Snow White and Rose Red fairy tales so seamlessly into her writing even though Lumikki’s tale is so different from what we expect to read when the reader sees a trilogy entitled The Snow White trilogy.”
A Bibliophile’s Reverie literature blog (on As Red as Blood)

“The prose [of As White as Snow] is expressive, and it is easy to devour the book in a flash.”
BokMolnet (“Book Cloud”) literature blog, Sweden (on As White as Snow)

“This book is fast and fun…I would buy this for teens of all ages who enjoy good thrillers.”
Pjatt.is online publication, Iceland  (on As Red as Blood)

The Snow White Trilogy comprises As Red as Blood, As White as Snow and As Black as Ebony. Starring a headstrong, haunted and sharp 17-year-old girl named Lumikki Andersson, the series has received praise from numerous international publications including Financial Times and The Guardian, and starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews and Booklist.
