In the first novella of the Blood and Snow series by RaShelle Workman, readers learned that there's a Vampire Queen looking for her next host to live out the coming 1,000 years. Snow White has been chosen as one of the hosts and when this installment ends, she's been bitten. Now, she's officially a revenant in the second novella, Revenant in Training.
As she begins to turn into a vampire she begins craving blood. She only has one main rule: never feed from the same person twice, which doesn't seem like it'll come easy to Snow. Readers learn more about Snow in this installment, slowly giving life to a reader/character connection. While the first novella focused on clumsiness and teenage crush, readers now gain another trait: bravery. Snow is thrown into this supernatural world where she's suddenly becoming a vampire and training to be a revenant. Yes, her fear and uncertainty is depicted but she does pretty well accepting everything that's going on. Perhaps it's just her bloodlust taking over...?
The plot expands as readers find out that the doctor next door is a vampire and worked to help the Vampire Queen pick her future bodies. Now, he protects the innocent girls, which includes Snow. Readers also learn that the doctor is going to attempt to kill the Queen and Snow just might be the secret weapon. The story line is definitely interesting but the character connection still doesn't seem strong enough.
