About this item


About the Book

The life of the Wicked Queen from Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" is examined, and readers learn the reason behind her nastiness. This deluxe edition includes preview chapters of the fourth Villains book, "Mistress of All Evil, " featuring Maleficent.

Book Synopsis

For anyone who's seen Walt Disney's Snow White, you'll know that the Wicked Queen is one evil woman! After all, it's not everyone who wants to cut out their teenage step-daughter's heart and have it delivered back in a locked keepsake box. (And even if this sort of thing is a common urge, we don't know many people who have acted upon it.)

Now, for the first time, we'll examine the life of the Wicked Queen and find out just what it is that makes her so nasty. Here's a hint: the creepy-looking man in the magic mirror is not just some random spooky visage-and he just might have something to do with the Queen's wicked ways!
Enjoy Serena Valentino's entire Villain's series.

This book is super sad honestly but it really does make me understand why the Evil Queen treated Snow White so badly & made me understand why she tried to kill her. Insecurities, Parental Death, Being a Single Parent, Death of a Significant Other (Husband), & Mental Illness (Anxiety & Depression) all mixed in one without help from anyone around you really can hurt someone. You also learn a really fun fact about the magic mirror from the Snow White movie which will really blow your mind! The story really made me feel for both Snow White & the Evil Queen. This series really makes you feel for both the Disney villains & the antagonists!

It felt forced and uninspired. It wasn’t interesting at all. The author tried to give her redeeming qualities and it just didn’t work. I hated it. It was boring and not a page turner. It was predictable and I would not recommend it.

I’m pretty sure it’s a good book! I haven’t personally read it yet because I didn’t get this book for myself. But when I received it I noticed wrinkled pages towards the last pages of the book and I couldn’t remove the 20% off sticker off the front cover!
