NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A fresh and imaginative retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale from the bestselling author of Uprooted. "One of the year's strongest fantasy novels."-NPR "A perfect tale . . . with the vastness of Tolkien and the empathy and joy in daily life of Le Guin."-The New York Times Book Review 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. Set an impossible challenge by the nameless king, Miryem unwittingly spins a web that draws in a peasant girl, Wanda, and the unhappy daughter of a local lord who plots to wed his child to the dashing young tsar. But Tsar Mirnatius is not what he seems. And the secret he hides threatens to consume the lands of humans and Staryk alike. Torn between deadly choices, Miryem and her two unlikely allies embark on a desperate quest that will take them to the limits of sacrifice, power, and love. Channeling the vibrant heart of myth and fairy tale, Spinning Silver weaves a multilayered, magical tapestry that readers will want to return to again and again. Praise for Spinning Silver "Gorgeous, complex, and magical . . . This is the kind of book that one might wish to inhabit forever."-Publishers Weekly (starred review) "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."-Katherine Arden, New York Times bestselling author of The Bear and the Nightingale

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
