Waiting on Wednesday (#181): Spindle by E.K. Johnston


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Spindle by E.K. Johnston
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication Date: December 6, 2016

Summary (From Goodreads):

The world is made safe by a woman...but it is a very big world.

It has been generations since the Storyteller Queen drove the demon out of her husband and saved her country from fire and blood. Her family has prospered beyond the borders of their village, and two new kingdoms have sprouted on either side of the mountains where the demons are kept prisoner by bright iron, and by the creatures the Storyteller Queen made to keep them contained.

But the prison is crumbling. Through years of careful manipulation, a demon has regained her power. She has made one kingdom strong and brought the other to its knees, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. When a princess is born, the demon is ready with the final blow: a curse that will cost the princess her very soul, or force her to destroy her own people to save her life.

The threads of magic are tightly spun, binding princess and exiled spinners into a desperate plot to break the curse before the demon can become a queen of men. But the web of power is dangerously tangled--and they may not see the true pattern until it is unspooled.



I liked A Thousand Nights a lot! This is the companion sequel to that book. I'm excited!

  16. I had no idea this book was getting a sequel! I read the first book and enjoyed it. It wasn't my favorite or anything, but it was good. I thought it was a standalone, though. Ugh. I'm so behind on bookish news. Anywho, I hope you enjoy it when you get your hands on it. :)
