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 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

Autorenporträt
Naomi Novik wurde 1973 in New York geboren und ist mit polnischen Märchen, den Geschichten um die Baba Yaga und den Büchern von J.R.R. Tolkien aufgewachsen. Sie hat englische Literatur studiert, im Bereich IT-Wissenschaften gearbeitet und war außerdem an der Entwicklung von äußerst erfolgreichen Computerspielen beteiligt. Doch dann erkannte Naomi Novik, dass sie viel lieber schreibt als programmiert. So machte sie sich daran, ihren Debüt-Roman zu schreiben, mit dem sie sofort die Herzen von Kritikern und Lesern gleichermaßen eroberte: "Drachenbrut", den ersten Band um die Feuerreiter Seiner Majestät. Naomi Novik lebt mit ihrem Mann und sechs Computern in New York.
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
