Hi, there! Welcome to the other book news post of the day! It’s another cover reveal, this one on Chapter by Chapter’s account, for Spindle, by Shonna Slayton! 😀
by Shonna Slayton
Release Date: October 4th, 2016
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Genre: YA Historical Fantasy
From the author of Cinderella’s Dress, a brand-new standalone novel that retells the story of Sleeping Beauty, this time set during the Industrial Revolution.
Sleeping Beauty’s happily ever after isn’t the end of the story…
The evil fairy’s magic is still trapped in her unfulfilled curse, and the only way to release it is to see a girl to the death. But the spindle has been hidden away for centuries, until a peddler offers it to an unsuspecting mill girl during the Industrial Revolution.
Briar Jenny had planned to escape her life of poverty and hardship with Wheeler, an ambitious young man who plans to leave the valley and start his own business. Trouble is, he no longer cares for her, fancying the new girl who just moved into town to work at the cotton mill. When Briar tries to use the spindle to win back Wheeler’s heart and secure her future, she has no idea the power she has unleashed.
After pricking her finger on the magic spindle, she falls under a sleeping sickness that slowly claims her body bit by bit. It will take all her strength, to not only survive, but also break the curse and defeat the evil fairy for good.
Personally, I love Sleeping Beauty. She’s my favorite Disney princess at the moment (I keep switching, don’t mind me, haha!) and her story retellings are the one that most grab my attention. So far, I’ve read three, that will be listed on the end of this post, and I can’t wait for Spindle to be my fourth!! Also, I found out that Entangled Teen has an awesome portfolio and I deeply trust them with my YA romances ❤
You can already pre-order Spindle in both paperback and ebook formats at our favorite book buying places! 😀
Shonna Slayton writes historical fairy tales for Entangled TEEN. Cinderella’s Dress and Cinderella’s Shoes, set in the 1940s, are out now. Spindle, a Sleeping Beauty inspired tale set in the late 1800s, will be out October 2016.
She finds inspiration in reading vintage diaries written by teens, who despite using different slang, sound a lot like teenagers today. When not writing, Shonna enjoys amaretto lattes and spending time with her husband and children in Arizona.
