Spinning Silver

Bok av Naomi Novik
With the Nebula Awardwinning 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 fathers inability to collect his debts has left his family on the edge of povertyuntil 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 Starykgrim fey creatures who seem more ice than fleshMiryems 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.

Mysig vinterläsning i sagostil. Naomi Noviks andra bok inspirerad av sagor. Precis som Uprooted så handlar det om slaviska folksagor.

Flera karaktärer är med men de tre huvudkaraktärerna är, Miryem, Irina och Wanda. Med helt olika bakgrund vävs deras liv samman.

För sig som älskar fairy tale retellings så är denna boken väl värd att läsa.
