Produktbeschreibung
Naomi Novik has once again been influenced by classic folktales, following Uprooted. Taking Rumpelstiltskin as her starting point, Spinning Silver is rich, original and a joy to read.

Will dark magic claim their home?

Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders, 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'll die. Yet if she triumphs, it may mean a fate worse than death. And in her desperate efforts to succeed, Miryem unwittingly spins a web which draws in the unhappy daughter of a lord.

Irina's father schemes to wed her to the tsar - he will pay any price to achieve this goal. However, the dashing tsar is not what he seems. And the secret he hides threatens to consume the lands of mortals and winter alike. Torn between deadly choices, Miryem and Irina embark on a quest that will take them to the limits of sacrifice, power and love.

'Dire and wonderful; I loved this book so much' - Laini Taylor, author of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series.

'Pits the cold of endless winter against the fires of duty, love and sacrifice. I couldn't put it down'- Katherine Arden, author of the Winternight trilogy.

Inhaltsangabe
A book as cool and mysterious as a winter's night
with two marvelous heroines at its heart. Spinning Silver pits the cold of endless winter against the fires of duty
love and sacrifice. I couldn't put it down
Dauntless women
cruel lords and wayward fairies come together in a beautifully realised world. Brimming over with fairy-tale magic
SPINNING SILVER proves Naomi Novik to be a master fantasist at the top of her game
Enchanting
in every sense of that fine old word. A charming and inviting story that looks unflinchingly at the strangling roots of hurt and revenge
The magic in Uprooted
with its realistic moral dimension
is so vividly believable that it almost seems you could work the spells. But the book will do that for you
I didn't know how much I wanted to read a book like this until it was already in my hands. Uprooted has everything I love about Novik's writing style
with the added bonus of some old world magic and the flavor of a dark faerie story
Uprooted has everything I love: a great heroine
new takes on old myths and legends
and surprising twists and turns. A delight
This gorgeous
complex
and magical novel...rises well above a mere modern re-imagining of classic tales...Novik probes the edges between the everyday and the extraordinary
balancing moods of wonder and of inevitability. Her work inspires deep musings about love
wealth
and commitment
and embodies the best of the timeless fairy-tale aesthetic...This is the kind of book that one might wish to inhabit forever
A remarkable achievement... Confirms a huge step forward for Novik
Novik outdoes herself in Spinning Silver... A fairy tale in the most epic of ways
but one with a strong
proud and beautiful heart at the centre of it
Novik has created something that deserves to be a sure fire hit - a tale that's ancient
contemporary
traditional and yet forward thinking
Lovely
intricate and strong. A gorgeous read. The sort of book one reads again and again
