Spinning Silver

(1)

PRAISE FOR NAOMI NOVIK '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' Ursula K. Le Guin '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' Robin Hobb 'A great heroine, new takes on old myths and legends, and surprising twists and turns. A delight' Cassandra Clare 'Uprooted has everything I love about Novik's writing style, with the added bonus of some old-world magic and the flavour of a dark faerie story' Patrick Rothfuss 'What a read. I absolutely loved it . . . A fairy tale for a modern audience. Highly recommended' John Gwynne

'Magical and practical, otherworldly and planted in the real, I could NOT stop reading this book and neither will you!' Tamora Pierce 'Wild, thrilling, and deeply, darkly magical. An instant classic' Lev Grossman

Novik weaves together motives of different fairy tales, creating a unique story with original characters and a compelling plot. Who can even resist the combination of a gorgeous cover, strong female characters, and an amazing writing style that draws you right into the story? I can?t believe how much I got to love the characters ? even one I didn?t like from the beginning and didn?t expect to like either. It?s just so cleverly done and makes you dread what?s about to happen, keeping the suspense real until the very end. And what a satisfying end it was?
