Review: Revenant in Training

Revenant in Training (Blood and Snow, #2)
TITLE: Revenant in Training 
(Blood and Snow Volume 2)
Author: RaShelle Workman

Summary:
Volume 2 in the BLOOD AND SNOW series. Each volume is novelette length. 

Snow has become something not quite human. She must discover how to live with the changes, hopefully without killing anyone.

EVERY THOUSAND YEARS THE VAMPIRE QUEEN SELECTS A NEW BODY, ALWAYS THE FAIREST IN THE LAND, AND THIS TIME SHE'S CHOSEN SNOW WHITE. 

"Lips red as rubies.
Hair dark as night. 
Drink your true love's blood. 
Become the Vampire, Snow White.


Review:

So, the second installment in the Blood and Snow series was again pretty good. I really feel like all of these volumes should be combined into an actual book. But whatever.
The writing was still solid and pretty.
The story just continued right where we stopped before. She now is a Revenant, a human on the verge of changing into a vampire. Her best friends (all boys) and their adoptive step father are now going to train her.
I guess the real problem is that there is no conflict that is resolved. In a book, you have the plot, and then some tension/conflict that builds to the climax before the story ends. That does not happen in these “books.” Instead, the story just stops, and continues in the next volume.
I really like the story so far, though there are glaringly obvious connections to Snow White… I mean, there is not any subtlety. Things are pretty cheesy at times too. But I still like it.
On to Volume 3


(I will rate all of them the same... so check back at Volume 4 to see what the rating is. Ill come back and update this though.)
