Waiting on Wednesday: Spindle Fire

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

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
Well, I don't know if comparing a book to the queens of fantasy Sarah J Maas and Leigh Bardugo is ever the best idea in case it doesn't live up to it... but this is a really interesting description! And if it can live up to it, well, then obviously I'd love it. Which is why I've already gone and preordered it, haha!

  3. I hadn't even heard of this one before now! Which is quite surprising, since I ADORE retellings. It sounds like this one is taking Sleeping Beauty and adding new elements, which is always fun in a retelling! And that cover is also super gorgeous. I hope you like this one when it's released, Sam! :D
