Literary Nymphs Reviewer: Chocolate Minx 

NorCal University is proud of the positive media attention two of their senior students produce. Snowden “Snow” Reynaldi is a chess grandmaster and Riley Prince is a championship quarterback. However, when greed, attempted murder as well as incriminating lies began to circulate, it takes a little bit of help from a few  enchanting individuals to rescue Snow and Riley.

Driven Snow is part of A Pennymaker Tale series. The theme is a classical fairy tale with an intriguing modern twist. The plot illustrates a few intense methods of failed homicides, in addition to an episode of heartbreak. The characters are endearing.

Snow is openly gay; his sexually is not an issue for the school because Snow’s genius intelligent at chess is profitable for NorCal. As for the homophobic students, Snow learned to avoid them most of the time. Besides being a chess champion, the other thing people notice about Snow is that he is pretty and often mistaken for a girl rather than a young man.

From his first day at NorCal, Riley has been keeping secrets. His goal is to be a football coach, so Riley did everything expected of his position as a team member including dating girls.

Tara Lain’s Driven Snow is an impressive saga. I particularly enjoyed the engaging characters even though I momentarily doubted Riley.
