Snow Island: Chronicles of a Wererabbit

Please note that this review may contain spoilers for earlier novels in the series. You can read my reviews of these books [here] and [here].

Snow Island: Chronicles of a Wererabbit was written by M.Y. Zeman and is due for release later this month. It is the third instalment of the series, following after Snowball: Chronicles of a Wererabbit (2015) and Snow Bunny: Chronicles of a Wererabbit (2016). Although Zeman does try to bring new readers up to speed with her early chapters, I’d advise reading these books in order if you want to have a full grasp on what’s going on.

Snow and her family are on holiday in Florida when a fortune teller gives her a terrible prediction. Not only do the fates say that she isn’t going to remain happily with Josh, but her very existence has caused a ripple in causality. As John cheated death by saving her as a baby, now someone close to her is sure to lose their own to compensate.

Although shaken by this, Snow is forced to quickly push it to the back of her mind as Josh begins to recover some of his lost memories. His dreams lead them to a mysterious island which has been converted into a macabre holiday resort by persons unknown. On the island, all manner of extinct and mythological creatures roam free. Unfortunately, they are only there to provide sport for big game hunters.

Snow and her family know that they need to do something to shut the resort down, however it will not be easy. Not only are the hunters armed, but many of the creatures are savage and will devour them on sight. It will be the most dangerous mission that Snow has ever undertaken and could certainly be the one to prove the fortune teller’s prediction right…

Wererabbits Need Your Support!

Hi everyone. This is a post of different sort. If you’ve followed me for a while, you might remember that I’ve posted a couple of reviews about M.Y. Zeman’s Chronicles of a Wererabbit series. These are great books for young teens, which focuses on the adventures of the world’s only Wererabbit. They also contain things like werewolves, hyper-intelligent rats, talking motorbikes and sabre-toothed tigers. Oh, and Snow’s dads are both vampires – how neat is that?

The long and the short is that the series is tonnes of fun, however it’s published entirely out of the author’s pocket. As she wants to make the third book – Snow Island – as cool it can be, she’s taken to Kickstarter to raise funds to cover its publication.

The author is looking to raise $1,000 to cover her expenses and offers all kinds of things as rewards, from copies of her books to crocheted mice. If you could spare a little change to help her out, she’d be massively grateful. Plus, you’d have done your bit to help out independent publishing and woodland creatures would love you. I think…

Anyhow, if you need any more convincing, here are some links to my reviews of the first two books. You can bet that I’ll also be reviewing the third, just as soon as I get my hands on a copy!

Snow Bunny - Chronicles of a Wererabbit

Please note that this review may contain spoilers for Snowball: Chronicles of a Wererabbit. You can read my review of this novel [here].

Snow Bunny: Chronicles of a Wererabbit was written by M.Y. Zeman and first published in 2016. It’s the second novel in the Chronicles of a Wererabbit series and follows on directly from where Snowball: Chronicles of a Wererabbit (2015) left off, with Snow having just rescued Josh from the clutches of evil scientists. A third novel in the series, provisionally titled Snow Island: Chronicles of a Wererabbit, has been announced but at the time of writing no release date has been set.

Following his rescue, Josh the werewolf has been forced to join Snow’s little family. Although the serum has left his system, he still can’t shift back into his wolf form and now his only hope is for John to discover a cure. Although plagued with nightmares of his imprisonment, Josh quickly bonds with Snow and begins to learn more about the human world through his friendship with her.

However, their friendship is not as close as Snow would like. The wererabbit soon starts to develop feelings for her new friend and wants nothing more than to date him but John is always quick to thwart her plans. To make things even more difficult, John insists that they all move into a disused prison to ensure that they are safe from whoever is kidnapping werewolves.

Yet even with all of their safety measures, it’s not long before Snow and Josh encounter the criminals once again. When they manage to discover the location of all the missing werewolves, they have no choice but to gather all of their friends and mount a daring rescue. Being a hero isn’t easy but Snow knows that they have no choice, especially when they learn who is responsible for the kidnappings…

Snowball: Chronicles of a Wererabbit

Snowball - Chronicles of a Wererabbit

Wow, I’ve reviewed some pretty heavy novels lately. I think it’s about time that I took a look at something a little lighter.

Snowball: Chronicles of a Wererabbit was written by M.Y. Zeman and first published in 2015. It’s a middle-grade fantasy story about the life of a young girl who can turn into a bunny at will. The novel is the first part of a planned series, though at the time of writing no further instalments have been released.

Snowball’s life has always been far from ordinary. After she was rescued from a burning laboratory, she found herself taken into the home of John – a vampire scientist. When he studies her DNA, John soon realises that Snow has a lot of similarities to a werewolf and is curious to see if she will ever gain the power to shift into a human.

When Snow first manages to become a human, she is only three years old. All of a sudden, John is forced to learn how to take care of a little girl instead of a rabbit. Although he finds it difficult to adapt at first, he quickly settles into life as a father (with a lot of support from his friend and former partner Edgar).

But Snow struggles to fit in. Although she’s comfortable in her rabbit persona, she finds it harder to associate with humans. She’s seen how dangerous they can be first hand and the girls at school are always quick to bully her about her appearance and strange habits. All Snow wants to be strong and able to protect others but she feels restricted by her small frame and gender. Little does she know that the time to prove herself is close at hand…
