Cover Reveal: 'Spinning Silver' By Naomi Novik Offers An Exciting Retelling Of Rumpelstiltskin

It's almost the end of the year and I haven't heard anything new from author Naomi Novik, and I got a little uncomfortable. See's been one of the top authors on my list to read since the release of her first Temeraire book, His Majesty's Dragon.

She has been so secretive as of late and her latest book, Uprooted, released in 2015 is not helping her cause. It was such an enjoyable read and I can't get enough of her novels. Luckily, I found an update on the Verge, detailing her upcoming novel, Spinning Silver, which is a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin and written in the same vein as Uprooted.

Check out the cover of Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik.

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik


A fresh and imaginative retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairytale from the bestselling author of Uprooted, called "very enjoyable fantasy with the air of a modern classic" by The New York Times Book Review.

Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders... but her father isn't a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has loaned out most of his wife's dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty--until Miryem steps in. Hardening her heart against her fellow villagers' pleas, she sets out to collect what is owed--and finds herself more than up to the task. When her grandfather loans her a pouch of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold.

But having the reputation of being able to change silver to gold can be more trouble than it's worth--especially when her fate becomes tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood, and whose king has learned of her reputation and wants to exploit it for reasons Miryem cannot understand.

Naomi Novik once again creates a wonderfully rich, multilayered fantasty world that readers will want to return to again and again.

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik will be released on July 10, 2018.
