Spinning Silver


Miryem is the daughter of a moneylender, but her father's too kind-hearted to collect his debts. They face poverty, until Miryem hardens her own heart and takes up his work in their village. Her success creates rumours she can turn silver into gold, which attract the fairy king of winter himself. He sets her an impossible challenge - and if she fails, she dies. Yet if she triumphs, it could mean a fate worse than death. And in her desperate efforts to succeed, Miryem unwittingly involves the unhappy daughter of a lord.

Irina's father schemes to wed her to the tsar. However, their dashing ruler hides a terrible secret that threatens mortals and winter alike. Torn between deadly choices, Miryem and Irina embark on a quest that will encompass sacrifice, power and love.

Spinning Silver
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 25.05.2019
Bewertet: Format: eBook (ePUB)

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
