Black as Snow | [Nick Nolan]

Black as Snow

Sebastian Black is gorgeous and charismatic - and he’s telepathic. So when his prophetess mother, Kitty Black, declares him "New Man", their tiny spiritual movement mushrooms. But when disciples die and Christian militants declare war on this "false messiah", Sebastian runs, seeking refuge.

On his journey, he meets "common" people with unforgettable histories: an aging lesbian couple; a Mexican handyman; an anorexic woman; a meth addict; a gay teenager; an unthinking college jock.

Publisher's Summary

Sebastian Black is gorgeous and charismatic - and he’s telepathic. So when his prophetess mother, Kitty Black, declares him "New Man", their tiny spiritual movement mushrooms. But when disciples die and Christian militants declare war on this "false messiah", Sebastian runs, seeking refuge.

On his journey, he meets "common" people with unforgettable histories: an aging lesbian couple; a Mexican handyman; an anorexic woman; a meth addict; a gay teenager; an unthinking college jock. As Sebastian’s understanding of life deepens, he drifts further from Kitty, who begins a plot to reel him back by conspiring with his enemies: followers of a dashing Spaniard who darkly mirrors Sebastian’s preternatural talents and beauty. But even Sebastian can’t foresee what happens next....

From Century City’s penthouses to Big Sur’s savage coastline, Black as Snow twists the fairytale of Snow White into a suspense-filled story of intrigue, spirituality, and greed - and the unyielding power of everyday love.

    "Not what I was expecting..."

    Not a bad book, but not sure it was what I expected. I have read Nick Nolan's first two books, Strings Attached and Double Bound and really enjoyed them. When I came upon this book, it was in the discounted section and I recognized the name and I, of course, made a huge assumption about the premise of the book. Even the cover eluded to my assumption. The primary character's are not gay. Additionally, I am not sure why, but Reed's connection to Double Bound didn't immediately register. Also, I must admit that in reading several of the other reviews, I did not see the Snow White connection. All in all, not a bad book. I enjoyed getting to know Sebastian, Libby & Tess, and Ramon...can't forget Chuck. The only cautionary blip is that this is not a 'gay' romance story, but a love story none-the-less.

    In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something

    "Pretty good . . ."

    Not sure what I expected with this book. I selfishly bought it because Todd Haberkorn is my number one favorite male voice of all time and I wanted to see what he sounded like in the audio book arena. He did not disappoint. I'm fairly stuck on voices and I can pick his out anywhere I hear it. It is that memorable. But this story is also good as well. It shows how easily good intent can be twisted. And how easily religion can be used for evil. The characters fairly developed and likeable. The ending was a surprise too. Didn't see that one coming at all.
