Title: Spindle Fire
Author: Lexa Hillyer
Publication Date: April 11, 2017
Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo, Spindle Fire is an enthralling, wholly original re-imagining of a classic faerie story.
Half-sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king’s headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close.
And then everything changes, with a single drop of Aurora’s blood, a Faerie Queen who is preparing for war, a strange and enchanting dream realm—and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken.
Spindle Fire is a tour de force fantasy set in the dwindling, deliciously corrupt world of the fae, and featuring two truly unforgettable heroines.
Why I'm Waiting...
Okay... so a few of you might be looking at this post and scratching your head because a book like Spindle Fire isn't exactly what you'd expect me to go for. I'm not too big on fantasy, but sometimes, a synopsis just grabs me and I know that I have to read the book.
What caught my eye about Spindle Fire is that it's a retelling of Sleeping Beauty with a focus on sisters! I also love that there are going to some twists to it, so I can't wait to see what Ms. Hillyer does with it.
