Beschreibung

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “One of the year’s strongest fantasy novels” (NPR), an imaginative retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale from the bestselling author of Uprooted.



NEBULA AND HUGO AWARD FINALIST • NAMED ONE OF PASTES BEST FANTASY BOOKS OF THE DECADE • NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • NPR • Time • Tordotcom • Popsugar • Vox • Vulture • Paste • Bustle • Library Journal

With the Nebula Award–winning 
Uprooted, Naomi Novik opened a brilliant new chapter in an already acclaimed career, delving into the magic of fairy tales to craft a love story that was both timeless and utterly of the now. 
Spinning Silver draws readers deeper into this glittering realm of fantasy, where the boundary between wonder and terror is thinner than a breath, and safety can be stolen as quickly as a kiss.

Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders, but her father’s inability to collect his debts has left his family on the edge of poverty—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. She will face an impossible challenge and, along with two unlikely allies, uncover a secret that threatens to consume the lands of humans and Staryk alike.

Praise for Spinning Silver

“A perfect tale . . . A big and meaty novel, rich in both ideas and people, with the vastness of Tolkien and the empathy and joy in daily life of Le Guin.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“Gorgeous, complex, and magical . . . This is the kind of book that one might wish to inhabit forever.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Cool and clever and . . . dire and wonderful.”
—Laini Taylor, author of Strange the Dreamer

“The Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale has never been as captivating. . . . 
Spinning Silver further cements [Novik’s] place as one of the genre greats.”
—Paste

Naomi Novik is growing into one of my favourite authors! I loved her take on Beauty and the Beast in "Uprooted" and I tremendously enjoyed "Spinning Silver", which is loosely based on Rumpelstiltskin. It's an empowering story about three young women using their wits to control their own destiny, 5 stars

Spinning Silver isn’t just a fairy tale retelling. Novik weaves together motives of different fairy tales, creating a unique story with original characters and a compelling plot. Who can even resist the combination of a gorgeous cover, strong female characters, and an amazing writing style that draws you right into the story? I can’t believe how much I got to love the characters – even one I didn’t like from the beginning and didn’t expect to like either. It’s just so cleverly done and makes you dread what’s about to happen, keeping the suspense real until the very end. And what a satisfying end it was…
