Six YA novels starring evil (and irresistible) magical ladies

At the BN Teen Blog, Nicole Brinkley tagged six YA novels featuring magical ambitious ladies willing to do whatever it takes to get what they want, including:
The Shadow Queen, by C.J. Redwine

Let’s get the most important thing out of the way: this reimagining of Snow White features a dragon huntsman. A huntsman who is a dragon shapeshifter. Nobody told me this when the book first came out, and now I feel the need to shout it from the rooftops. But this list is about magical evil ladies, and The Shadow Queen has two: Lorelai (our Snow White) and Irina (our Evil Queen). Lorelai will do anything to destroy Irina and retrieve her crown, and Irina will do anything to keep it, both using the only thing they have in common: magic.
Read about the other entries on the list.
