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.

I'm a little behind on this but will definitely jump into this book either tonight/tomorrow


Deanie Nelder | 1067 comments Me too, though today I'm doing awesome at getting caught up on my reading. I've got to finish The Princess Will Save You first, so it'll count for Book of the Month, and then I'm onto Spinning Silver (and finishing up A Discovery of Witches, The Witches of New York, and The Lost Hero).

Deanie Nelder | 1067 comments Crap. I've been reading the book (slowly), but I didn't realize I hadn't posted my comments as I went along and now the thread has expired, right? Can I still post? Can we reboot it?
