This week pick is:

Spindle Fire

Spindle Fire

Author: Lexa Hillyer
Publisher: Harper Teen
Expected Release: April 11th 2017

It all started with the burning of the spindles.
It all started with a curse...

Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king's headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and her voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close.

And then everything changes, with a single drop of Aurora's blood--and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken.

As the faerie queen and her army of Vultures prepare to march, Isabelle must race to find a prince who can awaken her sister with the kiss of true love and seal their two kingdoms in an alliance against the queen.

Isabelle crosses land and sea; unearthly, thorny vines rise up the palace walls; and whispers of revolt travel in the ashes on the wind. The kingdom falls to ruin under layers of snow. Meanwhile, Aurora wakes up in a strange and enchanted world, where a mysterious hunter may be the secret to her escape . . . or the reason for her to stay.

Spindle Fire is the first book in a lush fantasy duology set in the dwindling, deliciously corrupt world of the fae and featuring two truly unforgettable heroines.

  3. YES!!! I am really excited about this one too! It sounds like it's going to be so good! I requested an ARC but was declined so I have to wait until it comes out to grab a copy. I'm excited to hear what all the early reviewers have to say about it.

  4. I've been going back and forth with this one! On the one hand, I am curious about it and think I'd enjoy it. On the other hand, it's part of a series, and I am really not feeling series these days. Especially trilogies! I might binge-read this series when it's over. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Doris. =)
