Spinning Silver: A Novel

by Novik, Naomi (Author)

ISBN: 9780399180996

A fresh and imaginative retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairytale from the bestselling author of Uprooted, called a very enjoyable fantasy with the air of a modern classic by The New York Times Book Review.

-until Miryem takes matters into her own hands. Hardening her heart, the young woman sets out to claim what is owed, and soon gains a reputation for being able to turn silver into gold.

When an ill-advised boast draws the attention of the King of the Staryk-grim fey creatures who seem more ice than flesh-Miryem's fate, and that of two kingdoms, will be forever altered. Set an impossible challenge by the nameless king, Miryem unwittingly spins a web that draws in a peasant girl, Wanda, and the unhappy daughter of a local lord who plots to wed his child to the dashing young Tsar.

But Tsar Mirnatius is not what he seems. And the secret he hides threatens to consume the lands of humans and Staryk alike. Torn between deadly choices, Miryem and her two unlikely allies embark on a desperate quest that will take them to the limits of sacrifice, power, and love.

Channeling the vibrant heart of myth and fairy tale, Spinning Silver weaves a multilayered, magical tapestry that readers will want to return to again and again.
