    New York Times best seller

    “One of the year’s strongest fantasy novels” (NPR), an imaginative retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale from the best-selling author of Uprooted.

    Nebula and Hugo Award Finalist 

    Named one of Paste's Best Fantasy Books of the Decade

    Named one of the top 10 books of the year by The New York Public Library and one of the best books of the year by: The New York Times Book Review; NPR; Time; Tor.com; PopSugar; Vox; Vulture; Paste; Bustle; Library Journal

    With the Nebula Award-winning 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 listeners 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 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. 

    She will face an impossible challenge and, along with two unlikely allies, uncover a secret that threatens to consume the lands of humans and Staryk alike.

    Wonderful story, alright narration

    This was such a wonderful book, I recommend it even for those who didn't love Uprooted. The narration was a bit lackluster, and I wish the voices had been very different from the other, but as it was, they were all rather quiet and monotone and similar. It did not add to the story, I think one gets more out of it by getting the physical book.

    a great story! couldn't stop listening.

    the somewhat modern fairytale has 3 strong female characters. the story intertwines the fate of all three women. the story finishes without an Open ending and left me satisfied and happy.
    i wish there where more stories like this one out there.

    exceptional story telling

    Very unique story .. very unique way of delivering it to the reader. It really made an impression. Nice interesting characters. I loved how the view point and the story telling changed when it came from one chracter view to another. Just beautifull. Better pacing than in Uprooted where I didn't like the pacing of the story as it was all over the place. Voice performeace quite well done.
