Kaikki näyttäisikin sujuvan harvinaisen hyvin. Lumikki on yllätykseksi itselleenkin alkanut seurustella mukavan pojan kanssa, joka esittää näytelmässä metsästäjää. Olisiko elämä viimein löytämässä rauhallisen uomansa? Ensi-illan lähestyessä Lumikki alkaa kuitenkin saada viestejä salaiselta ihailijalta, jonka ihastus paljastuu pian kaikennieleväksi pakkomielteeksi. Viestien lähettäjällä tuntuu olevan enemmän tietoa Lumikin menneisyydestä kuin Lumikilla itsellään. Ihailija uhkaa muuttaa ensi-illan verilöylyksi, ellei Lumikki suostu hänen vaatimuksiinsa. Selvittäessään salaisen ihailijan henkilöllisyyttä Lumikin on pakko kohdata myös oman henkilöhistoriansa mustimmat salaisuudet.Lisäksi Lumikin elämän suuri rakkaus, Liekki, ottaa jälleen yhteyttä yli vuoden hiljaisuuden jälkeen ja haluaa jatkaa siitä, mihin he kaksi jäivät. Lumikin on tehtävä valinta kahden rakkaan väliltä. Mutta onko se mahdollista?...

    Recenzia completă: http://palarisme.ro/chef/carti/recenz...„A fost odată o cheie care a aşteptat răbdătoare mult şi bine.A fost odată o cheie care voia să descuie iarăşi cufărul şi să scoată la lumină tainele dinăuntru.A fost odată ca niciodată o cheie mutată din vechea ei ascunzătoare într-un loc nou, săpat în piatră veche.”Seriile populare beneficiază de un fandom impresionant (uneori, isteric), de numeroase fan art-uri, ficuri, „amintiri” personalizate sau, atunci când şi norocul se strecoară în ecuaţie, de o ecranizare binemeritată, care, sperăm noi, cei optimişti şi veşnic stresaţi de rezultatul final, nu va distruge sursa scrisă. Orbiţi fiind de promovarea pe care ele o primesc, pierdem din vedere seriile mai controversate, care nu se folosesc de „ingrediente” clasice, uşor clișeice, pentru a trezi interesul, seriile care încă nu au o voce atât de puternică încât să capteze atenţia cititorilor şi să-şi mărturisească secretele, rămânând mereu în umbră în librării, ignorate sau uitate mult prea repede. Din păcate, trilogia „Albă-ca-Zăpada” a autoarei Salla Simukka se încadrează în a doua categorie.Aţi citit vreodată o carte dintr-o singură suflare? O suflare timidă, care tremură atunci când este descătuşată, care poate să oprească timpul, sfidându-i legile, în acelaşi mod în care Legolas spulberă legile fizicii în The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies? Cu doar 159 de pagini de parcurs, un număr mult prea mic pentru o protagonistă atât de incredibilă şi de fascinantă, am terminat romanul în jumătate de oră, după ce l-am amânat câteva luni, din dorinţa de a lăsa seria neterminată şi de a nu o finaliza.Nu am întâlnit foarte multe eroine pe care să le apreciez sau care să mă împiedice să-mi dau ochii peste cap (mă refer strict la literatura contemporană). Hermione Granger. Inej Ghafa. Karou. Șeherezada. June Iparis. Robin Ellacott. Viola Eade. Lisbeth Salander. Mustang. Acum, Lumikki Andersson.Trilogia nu se apropie de sfera fantastică, însă Lumikki este magică, într-un fel abstract şi greu de înţeles, imposibil de reliefat prin intermediul cuvintelor. În continuare un suflet chinuit, bântuit de şoapte din trecut, de fantasme care o împiedică să trăiască în prezent, Lumikki pare să-şi fi găsit un echilibru după întâmplările din volumele precedente, un loc al ei, în care se simte bine și se află în siguranţă. Cel mai important? Este fericită.

    Κάποιος κρυφός θαυμαστής της Χιονάτης, γνωρίζει πολλά για τη ζωή της. Πράγματα που εκείνη έχει κρύψει καλά και άλλα τα οποία αγνοεί. Την παρακολουθεί λοιπόν, την εκβιάζει και την απειλεί.Πιο ψυχολογικά ατμοσφαιρικό, το τελευταίο πόνημα της Τριλογίας είναι και το πιο σκοτεινό κατ' εμέ και ειλικρινά το απόλαυσα περισσότερο από τα προηγούμενα..

    سوداء كالأبنوس ثالث وآخر كتاب من ثلاثية بياض الثلج. حيث تواجه فيه لوميكي رسائل نصية من مهووس يعلم بكل ماضيها القديم فيبدأ بمطاردتها وتهديدها بأن يقلب حياتها رأسًا على عقب إن لم تقوم بتنفيذ طلباته، فتحاول لوميكي الفرار منه أنهيت الرواية في حوالي يوم واحد وكانت عدد الصفحات قليلة فلم يعجبني طريقة أن الكاتبة حاولت أن تفسر كل الأمور الغريبة في أواخر الصفحات، فهي لم تعطي فرصة للقارئ في حل الألغاز بنفسه ووجدت بعض الحوارات عباراتها مستهلكة، لكن لا يمنع هذا حبي لهذه الثلاثية وانها ستبقى واحدة من السلاسل المفضلة عندي. 3.5/5

    Vanhassa Lumikki-sadussa Lumikki puraisi myrkkyomenaa ja kuoli. Musta kuin eebenpuu teoksen kannessa on musta omena, joka viittaa joulunäytelmään, jota ilmaisutaitolukion oppilaat harjoittelivat. Lumikki esitti näytelmässä tietysti pääosaa. Hänen poikaystävänsä Sampsa esitti metsästäjää. Lumikki haaveili edelleen Liekistä, joka oli jättänyt Lumikin vuotta aiemmin mennäkseen sukupuolenkorjausleikkaukseen. Liekki oli murtanut Lumikin sydämen ja Lumikki oli pitkään ollut masentunut Liekin lähdön jälkeen. Nyt Liekki oli tullut takaisin ja halusi jatkaa siitä, mihin he olivat jääneet. Kumman Lumikki valitsi, Sampsan vai Liekin, se kannattaa lukea kirjasta.

    Цялото ревю:http://booksomnia.com/lyubovta-e-smar...Финалът на историята за Лумики не се оказа каквото очаквах. Очаквах повече. Да, отново имаше мистерия. Да, отново имаше опасности и напрежение. Но все пак нещо не ми достигна като че ли. Не че не ми хареса, но при все че загатват за някои неща още от първата книга, очаквах историята да е по-заплетена и по-интригуваща.

    Trebuie să recunosc că acest ultim volum al trilogiei a fost destul de dezamăgitor. Negru ca abanosul are în vedere elucidarea misterului mesajelor ascunse din primele două volume, acele texte scrise cu italic despre care nu știam exact de unde provin. În acest volum Lumikki are parte de și mai multe dintre aceste mesaje, adresate ei în mod direct și se confruntă cu problemele create de către acest admirator obsedat, ce are darul de a-i declanșa câteva amintiri de mare valoare pentru propria istorie personală.În cadrul acestui ultim volum Lumikki se află între doi băieți pe care îi iubește în moduri și pentru motive foarte diferite, Sampsa și Blaze, acesta din urmă fiind de asemenea și marea iubire a vieții ei de la începutul trilogiei dar care însă a trebuit să o părăsească pentru a-și rezolva niște probleme personale. Lumikki este forțată să ascundă față de cei doi spaima în care trăiește din momentul în care îi este livrată prima scrisoare din partea persoanei care o terorizează și chiar îi bănuiește la un anumit punct pentru acest rol pe fiecare dintre cei doi. În cadrul școlar, Lumikki o joacă pe Albă-ca-Zăpada într-o piesă de teatru modernizată iar cel care îi urmărește fiecare mișcare o amenință că premiera piesei va fi cu adevărat sângeroasă dacă protagonista va spune cuiva despre mesajele pe care le primește. Totuși, atât rolul ei din piesă cât și alte elemente incluse în primele două volume continuă să-i readucă în memorie amintiri cu privire la o anumită Rosa, presupusa ei soră pierdută. Admiratorul obsedat îi tot readuce acest mister în vedere și o ajută să pună lucrurile cap la cap, susținând ideea că cei doi au același suflet și sânge rece. Acțiunea este mult mai puțin complexă comparativ cu primele două volume, aș putea spune. Având în vedere că Negru ca abanosul are doar 150 de pagini, m-aș fi așteptat la ceva cu adevărat uimitor, nu doar un build up care duce la un singur capitol unde întregul mister al admiratorului secret ne este dezvăluit, venind într-adevăr ca o surpriză pentru cititor, însă fiind tratat cu frugalitate, după părerea mea. Mai mult decât atât, conspirația în sine din acest volum mi s-a părut extrem de prost construită, nereușind să inducă cu adevărat o stare de suspans, precum am regăsit în celelalte două volume. Deznodământul propriu-zis și ultimele paragrafe ale romanului ne prezintă o Lumikki schimbată, ce-i drept, care ajunge la o oarecare comuniune cu natura însă concluziile de natură morală nu sunt suficient de mult elaborate; pe scurt, nu mi-a plăcut faptul că în acest volum s-a insistat mult mai tare pe acțiune în sine decât pe psihologia personajului, lucru chiar paradoxal având în vedere natura misterului. Mi s-a părut a fi un roman grăbit, cu multe date aruncate în cadrul poveștii dar care însă nu au reușit să stârnească sentimente puternice din partea cititorului în aceeași măsură cu primele două volume.Personal, consider acest volum a fi cel mai slab al trilogiei iar acest lucru este un mare păcat, căci așteptările au fost construite și ridicate pe parcurs iar finalul este unul neașteptat de dezamăgitor. Premisele sunt interesante, personajele sunt în continuare atipice iar acțiunea nu este ușor de prevăzut, într-adevăr, însă aceste lucruri nu au mai fost suficiente pentru a-i oferi romanului un rating mare, având în vedere că mă așteptam la ceva care să cuprindă cu adevărat toată esența protagonistei și să încununeze cumva toate acțiunile ei anterioare și deciziile care au făcut-o să fie ceea ce este.

    No me ha gustado mucho... me ha parecido muy flojo, se me ha hecho cuesta arriba y Lumikki es muy insoportable. Los dos anteriores me gustaron mucho más :(

    Posljednja knjiga iz trilogije 'Snjeguljica', o mladoj Finkinji Lumikki Andersson, donosi nam pravo zaključenje ovog serijala i odgovore na sva neriješena pitanja preostala iz prethodnih nastavaka.U ovoj knjizi, Lumikkin se život, nakon ljeta punog iznenađenja, koje je proživjela u 2. knjizi trilogije, nastavlja svojim uobičajenim tokom. Lumikki je konačno zadovoljna i sretna sa svojim životom, unatoč nekolicini neodgovorenih pitanja vezanih za njeno djetinjstvo, koja joj se motaju po glavi. Lumikki 'cvatu ruže' i u ljubavnom životu, jer je pronašla sjajnog i odanog dečka, s kojim joj je ugodno biti. No, Lumikkina idila ne potraje zadugo, jer netko joj počinje ostavljati tajnovite prijeteće anonimne poruke, a nekako istodobno, u njenom se životu ponovno pojavljuje Blaze, dečko koji joj je slomio srce.Da bi otkrila tko stoji iza anonimnih poruka, te da bi spriječila da ta osoba napravi nešto grozno njoj ili nekome od njenih prijatelja, Lumikki će morati napraviti sve što ta osoba od nje u porukama traži. A dok polako otkriva identitet tajanstvenog stalkera, Lumikki će se približiti i odgovorima na pitanja iz njenog vlastitog života koja ju još uvijek muče, kao što je pitanje je li imala sestru i što joj se dogodilo. A dok se bori s podijeljenim osjećajima o vlastitoj prošlosti, morat će se upustiti i u borbu s osjećajima prema Blazeu, koji su očito u njoj još uvijek prisutni, ali sada se tu nalaze i osjećaji prema sadašnjem dečku, kojeg ne želi izgubiti...Ako na prvu knjigu ove trilogije gledamo kao na svojevrsni uvod, a na drugu kao na zaplet, na ovu treću knjigu tada možemo gledati kao na konačni rasplet i razrješenje Lumikkine priče koja se protezala kroz sve tri knjige.Lumikki je kroz prve dvije knjige prošla kroz svašta, što ju je oblikovalo i učinilo likom kakav je ovdje: iskusnijom, staloženijom; osobom koja zna što želi i koja se zna obraniti od svega što se pred njom nađe kako bi ju napalo, unatoč strahu koji, normalno, u sebi osjeća. Lumikkina znatiželja koju smo upoznali odmah u prvoj knjizi i ovdje je prisutna, ali ovdje je ona još odlučnija i zagriženija da sazna sve odgovore na sva pitanja koja ju muče - i ne misli stati dok do njih ne dođe.Ljubavna priča Lumikki i Blazea, koja je obilježila njen život i o kojoj smo čitali u drugoj knjizi trilogije, ovdje dobiva svoj crescendo i svoj konačni rasplet, ali se i dodatno zapliće uvodeći u priču Lumikkinog novog dečka, što stvara dodatnu napetost u cijeloj priči i daje joj neki dodatni začin, ali ju u nekim dijelovima i nepotrebno dodatno komplicira.Sama priča u ovoj je knjizi napeta i zanimljiva, ali i izbjegava sva ona pretjerivanja koja smo imali prilike vidjeti u prvoj knjizi koja su od Lumikki bila načinila nekakvog ženskog Jamesa Bonda - Lumikki je ovdje sasvim normalna djevojka, svjesna dosega svojih sposobnosti, baš onakva kakva bi i trebala biti.Ono što mi se posebno svidjelo kod ovog dijela Lumikkine priče je to kako ona prihvaća samu sebe i život kao takav - malo sretan, malo nesretan; čime se odvaja od bajke s kojom je njena priča alegorijski povezana. Lumikki shvaća da nisu sve priče bajke, i da u njima ljudi ne žive sretno zauvijek, već njihova sreća ovisi o tome kakv život si oni sami stvore i kako sami sebe doživljavaju."Imala je jednako toliko slojeva i granala se isto kao i bajka stara tisuću godina. Bajka koje je počela davno prije riječi 'jednom davno' i koja će se nastaviti dugo nakon riječi 'i živjeli su sretno zauvijek'. Jer ništa se zapravo ne dogodi samo jednom. Sve su priče postojale mnogo puta, spajale su se i mijenjale. I nitko ne živi zauvijek sretno. Ili nesretno. Svatko živi i sretno i nesretno, u različita vremena, a ponekad istovremeno."Ovo je kraj Lumikkine bajke (ili možda tek njen početak) i kraj našeg druženja s njom. S ovom knjigom Lumikkina trilogija čini zaokruženu cjelinu, bez zaostalih repova i pitanja, što mi se svidjelo, jer, iako ponekad paše da neki serijal ostavi otvorenu mogućnost dodatnog nastavka, mislim da s ovim serijalom to nije potrebno, da je u njemu rečeno sve što je trebalo biti rečeno i da, kao takav, on čini jedan solidan, zatvoren krug dobre priče. U konačnici, ovo je jedan sasvim solidan triler, premda možda malo više orijentiran na mlađe čitatelje i malo blaži od onakvih na kakve smo kod skandinavskih pisaca općenito do sada navikli. Ako ste fan Lumikki, vrijeme je da pročitate i zadnju etapu njene priče.

    Η δημοφιλής τριλογία της συγγραφέως Salla Simukka έφτασε στο τέλος της. Μια τριλογία που από το πρώτο της κιόλας βιβλίο κατόρθωσε να μας καθηλώσει, αφού πρώτα μας είχε γοητεύσει με τα μοναδικά της εξώφυλλα που υπόσχονταν σκοτεινά παραμύθια οι δράκοι των οποίων ζούνε μέσα μας αλλά και μέσα στους ανθρώπους που βρίσκονται γύρω μας, είτε το γνωρίζουμε μετά βεβαιότητας είτε όχι. Και πράγματι, ακριβώς αυτό μας προσέφερε, με τις περιπέτειες της Χιονάτης να είναι κάθε φορά όλο και πιο μυστηριώδεις, όλο και πιο τρομακτικές, ποτέ διαφορετικές στην αισθητική τους, αλλά και ποτέ ίδιες στην βαθύτερη ουσία τους και στην σκοπιμότητα της ύπαρξής τους. Ίσως και γι' αυτό να αγαπήθηκαν τόσο πολύ από την μεγαλύτερη μερίδα του αναγνωστικού κοινού, και ίσως γι' αυτό να την αγάπησα τόσο πολύ κι εγώ.Η Χιονάτη, λοιπόν, αφού κατάφερε να επιβιώσει από μία ακόμα περιπέτεια -εκείνην της Πράγας-, έχει επιστρέψει στην καθημερινότητά της, προσπαθώντας -πλέον- να ζήσει και να απολαύσει μια φυσιολογική ζωή. Έχει ένα αγόρι που την λατρεύει, μια καλή κοινωνική ζωή, ενώ στο σχολείο της ετοιμάζεται μια εναλλακτική παράσταση που αφορά το παραμύθι της Χιονάτης μετά το "και ζήσανε αυτοί καλά", στην οποία φυσικά δεν θα γινόταν να μην πρωταγωνιστεί. Όλα φαντάζουν ήρεμα κι αρμονικά, όμως δύο γεγονότα έρχονται να ταράξουν την ηρεμία αυτή για ακόμα μία φορά. Η πρώτη της αγάπη που στην πραγματικότητα ποτέ της δεν ξεπέρασε και που σήμερα ζητάει μια δεύτερη ευκαιρία, αλλά κι ένας μυστηριώδης άγνωστος που φαίνεται να γνωρίζει κάθε της κίνηση παίζοντας μαζί της αλλά και με το μυαλό της.Αν και το τρίτο βιβλίο της σειράς είναι αρκετά μικρότερο από τα προηγούμενα δύο, δεν υστερεί σε τίποτα. Αντίθετα, μας παρουσιάζει μια καταιγιστική, νέα περιπέτεια της Χιονάτης, που είναι πραγματικά μαύρη σαν τον έβενο και που σε κάθε νέα σελίδα μας στερεί λίγο ακόμα από το οξυγόνο που έχουμε ανάγκη για να ισχυριστούμε πως αναπνέουμε κανονικά και ελεύθερα. Οι εξελίξεις είναι συνεχείς και ραγδαίες, η αφήγηση έχει σταθερά εξελικτική ροή χωρίς να βαλτώνει αλλά και χωρίς να κουράζει και κυρίως, χωρίς να μας δημιουργεί την παραμικρή αίσθηση κενότητας, βάζοντάς μας στη διαδικασία να σκεφτούμε πως κάτι λείπει από το κείμενο. Αντίθετα, η πλοκή είναι σφιχτή, το γεγονότα τρέχουν και μαζί τους τρέχουμε κι εμείς, ενώ τίποτα δεν είναι όπως φαίνεται, κάτι που μας συστήνει μια σειρά ανατροπών που δεν μπορεί να προβλέψει κανείς εύκολα.Πέραν όμως από μια περιπέτεια, τόσο το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο όσο και η τριλογία στο σύνολό της, είναι ένα ταξίδι εσωτερικής αναζήτησης. Η Χιονάτη, μέσα από τα γεγονότα που ζει και βιώνει, αλλάζει. Ωριμάζει ως άνθρωπος και η ήδη συγκροτημένη προσωπικότητά της, γίνεται ακόμα πιο ενδιαφέρουσα και γοητευτική, κυρίως επειδή μέσα από την επιφανειακή της σκληρότητα ανθίζει σταδιακά μια βαθιά ευαισθησία που όμως η ίδια δεν της επιτρέπει να κυριαρχήσει στη λογική της. Η Χιονάτη, όπως κάθε άνθρωπος, έχει την σκοτεινή και την φωτεινή πλευρά της και αυτό είναι κάτι που το έχει αποδεχτεί. Από 'κει κι έπειτα, αυτό που καλείται να κάνει, είναι επιλογές. Να ακολουθήσει το δικό της μονοπάτι και να χαράξει το μέλλον της γνωρίζοντας πλέον την πάσα αλήθεια, όχι αφήνοντας πίσω το παρελθόν της, αλλά αποδεχόμενη τις χαρές και τις πληγές που αυτό της προσέφερε ως τώρα. Μια μαγική τριλογία, ένα υπέροχο σκοτεινό ταξίδι.

    As Black As Ebony was an interesting closer to the Snow White series. Without giving too much away, a few things from earlier books are addressed and put to rest.In this book, Lumikki is back home after the events in Prague and back to school. She also has a new boyfriend and seems to be settling back into things. But as we all know, life never runs smoothly in real like or fiction!🙈As Black As Ebony gets into things pretty quickly. The reader is also given the POV of the stalker which adds an extra narrative to the story. I found that the pace in this novel didn’t work as well for me as the previous two. Absolutely nothing wrong with the writing, but it was super speedy.That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it, I totally did. It was easy to read, relatively short and tied things up nicely. My only issue was how fast the plot picked up as it seemed that little bit rushed towards the end.That is literally the only thing that didn’t work for me though! I would highly recommend these books! They are different, fun and captivating reads!

    Lumikki-trilogian viimeinen osa oli kaikista kiinnostavin ja mukanaan vievin. Pakkomielteinen stalkkeri tuntui hyytävältä ja todelliselta. Ylipäänsä kolmannen osan tarkastelemat ihmisten väliset suhteet kiinnostivat eniten ja ihan harmitti, että esimerkiksi Lumikin ja Liekin välinen ihmissuhdetta ei lähdetty ruotimaan syvällisemmin. Mutta toisaalta, nuortenkirjaan vähän pintapuolisemmaksi jäävä tarkastelu sopi.Nyt kun olen lukenut kaikki osat, täytyy sanoa, että olihan tämä ihan hyvä. Erityisesti kirjan aiheet miellyttivät. Jos olisin lukenut nämä nuorempana - tässä sitä taas ollaan pohtimassa, voiko aikuinen saada nuortenkirjoista tarpekesi irti - olisin varmaan pitänyt näistä enemmän.Nyt odottelen niitä elokuvia. Ja hei - miksei tämä kirjasarjakin voisi venyä trilogiasta pidemmäksi?!

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.At only 151 pages, Ms. Simukka had a lot to accomplish to close out her clever Snow White trilogy. And wow, did she.This story was far from predictable. I won't get into the details because the twists involved in the story start as an arc in book one and you deserve to experience those what the WHAT?! moments unspoiled. Though this book does contain it's own mystery- this book is mainly about finally solving the overall mystery that began in As Red as Blood, the first book.As Black as Ebony sped along at a breakneck pace. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to reach the end. Again the Snow White fairytale is cleverly used, though a little more obvious this time. Again this is not a retelling.All threads are tied up and the choices Lumikki makes as regards her future and her love life fit her character.Though the series is concluded, I would definitely read this author again.I recommend the book and the series overall. It's quite the ride.

    The Snow White trilogy is one of the most underrated ones and I don't understand why nobody talks about it.Personally, I really enjoyed these books because at the time, it was unlike anything I've read. The plot was quite original, combining crime and young adult fiction.I also liked the main character very much, because she was just a normal teenager, who wanted to live her life without getting involved in other people's affairs, but also happened to be in the wrong place, the wrong time.I recommend this book to you if you feel like escaping your usual reads and reading an amazing and well-written trilogy.

    Nja. Berättelsen är svag. Det finns ändå saker jag verkligen gillar som t.ex. slutet som nästan är värt en extra stjärna.

    Lumikki has returned to Finland and is looking forward to one thing … graduation! When she gets the lead role in the school’s version of “Snow White” she begins having feelings for the boy playing the huntsman, but since her life is anything but simple she questions her true feelings. Now Lumikki has an admirer or is it a stalker? These crazy and creepy love notes have her questioning the motives of everyone around her. If that is not enough, she begins remembering facts about a secret her family has kept hidden from her most of her life. Will she uncover the lies swirling around her? Will the truth set her free or shatter her resolve?As Black as Ebony is the third (and seemingly final) book in the Lumikki Andersson series. The book is short and can easily be finished in one sitting. With that said, there is no fluff and the action is pure and simple. Simukka has written a story that readers will relate to even though they may have never experienced any of these issues. I can’t say anything about the original work, but Witesman’s translation was fine and the writing style seemed authentic. Readers who have not read the first two books should read them before picking up this novel, though.

    This reminded me of the first book, because it was complex, fast paced, full of action, with a ton of things happening and it made me so curious. I won't talk about the plot and this review is going to be very short, because I don't wanna spoil anything. But I really liked it, Lumikki was very alive and strong and smart, and I felt much for her. I wanna think that the second book in this trilogy didn't happen so much, because it was meh. And this one and the first book really show how good the trilogy is and how strong and interesting the characters are. I liked the idea of this novel, but I dunno if I like how it ended and how the mystery was solved. Maybe I was expecting something more. But all in all it was good.I recommend this series if you like suspense, action, mystery,north authors and literature, short books. Maybe you'll like this or not.Thanks to netgalley and publisher for this one!

    I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Amazon Publishing!As Black as Ebony is the last book in a trilogy about Lumikki, a Finnish teenage whose name literally means Snow White, and it closes the series nicely. Like the first two parts, the stories are related, but the adventures are new (Lumikki remembers what happened in previous installments, but they don't directly affect this book). We finally get closure on her personal story, hints of which were sprinkled throughout As White as Snow and As Red as Blood. I guessed the identity of the bad guy, but it was still interesting to follow the clues. The writing is beautiful (kudos to the translator!), and the ending makes total sense. It is a bittersweet ending. Lumikki wouldn't have it any other way.

    3.5A few minuses appeared in this book. The first one would be that the real action began at the second half of the book. Also, I didn't like how the main character felt about her ex and lied to her current boyfriend. And lastly, the ending seemed rushed. It really could have been more expanded, detailed.However, I liked some things as well. Like the thrill felt at the second half of the book, how Lumikki found out what really happened to her sister and so on. And yayyy, I managed to get right who her stalker was before it was told.This book was a great ending to the series.I highly recommend this trilogy if you want an easy one-night detective.

    The final book in the Snow White Trilogy was a fast paced mystery that keeps you guessing right to the end. Lumikki keeps getting these scary letters from a stalker who threatens the lives of those around her unless she follows his demands. She makes some pretty stupid decisions in the process of trying to figure out who this person is. Through the book you are given glimpses into her childhood and some details about a tragic night during that time. While the ending felt a bit rushed it was a roller coaster ride of an ending.
