Stealing Snow Blog Tour: Danielle Paige's Top Six Fantasy Worlds

Thursday, 6 October 2016

Good day everybody! My, oh my hasn't it been a while! A few months I'd reckon! Well to kick things off a bit as a revamp here on The Blogger's Bookshop (The Blogger's Spookshop if you want to be Halloweeny!) I have the lovely New York Times Bestselling Author, Danielle Paige, who is here to celebrate her new release, Stealing Snow. Imagine Disney's Frozen meets YA! If you thought Frozen was popular, then wait until you see what treats Stealing Snow has in store for us!

I have Danielle here today to talk about her Top Six Fantasy Worlds! So without further ado, and in no particular order, here are Danielle's Top Fantasy Worlds!

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Taking Cinderella to space was a feat that I could not have imagined. It totally inspired me when writing my Dorothy and again in writing Stealing Snow. She gives happily ever after a new landscape while still maintaining the heart of the story we grew up loving.


Every detail was magic. Lewis Carroll takes us down the rabbit hole and plays with perspective, taking us eye level with Caterpillars and making us tower over Wonderland! 

The Land of Oz

From L. Frank Baum's original to Gregory McGuire's Wicked, I wanted to go over the Rainbow and meet the witches and munchkins and all of Dorothy's friends. And I got to go to Oz in Dorothy Must Die, but I may have dimmed the technicolor a bit!

Westeros from Game of Thrones

The map of Westeros may as well be a chess board. From Winterfell to the wall to Lannisport, each land is distinct and each people prepared to battle! And there's magic and dragons!!!

A Galaxy Far, Far Away from Star Wars

Star Wars was my first introduction to a space opera, and I will be forever in love with George Lucas' world building! From the Death Star to Tatooine, Lucas creates lands filled with machines, aliens, and creatures! 

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Collins' thirteen districts have to fight in a constructed game of death. The architecture of the game changed with each book as Katniss tries to redraw the map, save herself, and save the people.

And there we have it! The Top Six Fantasy Worlds by Danielle Paige! It's really phenomenal to see where Danielle got her inspiration from, as some of these worlds are absolutely fantastic. I know the world of The Lunar Chronicles is beyond ridiculously cool and the way Meyer spins it is unique! However, that being said, Danielle does a pretty fantastic job at weaving her own worlds as well - I know that whilst reading Dorothy Must Die for the first time, how impressed I was at just how dark and sinister Danielle made The Land of Oz. That being said, the world she crafts in Stealing Snow, whilst being a complete contrast to the alternate version of Oz she creates in Dorothy Must Die, is still just as brilliant and I can't wait for you all to visit it.

I just want to put out a special thank you to Danielle for having me host her fantasy worlds and to the lovely people at Bloomsbury for organising it! Don't forget to check out the final stop in the Stealing Snow Blog Tour over at Emily The Book Addict's blog!


Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent her life locked in Whittaker Psychiatric—but she isn’t crazy. And that’s not the worst of it. Her very first kiss proves anything but innocent…when Bale, her only love, turns violent.

Despite Snow knowing that Bale would never truly hurt her, he is taken away—dashing her last hope for any sort of future in the mental ward she calls home. With nowhere else to turn, Snow finds herself drawn to a strange new orderly who whispers secrets in the night about a mysterious past and a kingdom that’s hers for the taking—if only she can find her way past the iron gates to the Tree that has been haunting her dreams.

Beyond the Tree lies Algid, a land far away from the real world, frozen by a ruthless king. And there too await the River Witch, a village boy named Kai, the charming thief Jagger, and a prophecy that Snow will save them all.
