Tough and gritty Essie has carved out a life on the desolate and frozen mining planet of Thanda. She is a cage fighter who is also handy with programming and engineering. She has created drones to help with the mining, seven drones to be exact. The aptly named drone, Dimwit, seems to stay the closest to her. Her life changes when the dashing Dane crash lands on her planet. He is seeking a treasure of sorts. He’s looking for the lost daughter of cruel King Matthias. There are reasons Essie has tried for so many years to stay hidden but with Dane’s arrival she is pulled into a war with many factions. Essie is taken off planet against her will and that is when her troubles compound.
Stitching Snow is a sci-fi Snow White action-thriller complete with an evil stepmother. I wish there was a bit more with the drones, perhaps in the next installment. Highly recommend!
