Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik

Will dark magic claim their home?

Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders, but her father’s too kind-hearted to collect his debts.  They face poverty, until Miryem hardens her own heart and takes up his work in their village.  Her success creates rumours she can turn silver into gold, which attract the fairy king of winter himself.  He sets her an impossible challenge – and if she fails, she’ll die.  Yet if she triumphs, it may mean a fate worse than death.  And in her desperate efforts to succeed, Miryem unwittingly spins a web which draws in the unhappy daughter of a lord.

Irina’s father schemes to wed her to the tsar – he will pay any price to achieve this goal.  However, the dashing tsar is not what he seems.  And the secret he hides threatens to consume the lands of mortals and winter alike.  Torn between deadly choices, Miryem and Irina embark on a quest that will take them to the limits of sacrifice, power and love.

In this fairy tale-inspired novel, Naomi Novik weaves a rich, multi-layered tapestry that is a joy to read.

Peer & Press Reviews

Dauntless women, cruel lords and wayward fairies come together in a beautifully realised world.  Brimming over with fairy-tale magic, Spinning Silver proves Naomi Novik to be a master fantasist at the top of her game.

Zen Cho, author of Sorcerer to the Crown

This gorgeous, complex, and magical novel… rises well above a mere modern re-imagining of classic tales…  Novik probes the edges between the everyday and the extraordinary, balancing moods of wonder and of inevitability.  Her work inspires deep musings about love, wealth, and commitment, and embodies the best of the timeless fairy-tale aesthetic…  This is the kind of book that one might wish to inhabit forever.

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A book as cool and mysterious as a winter’s night, with two marvelous heroines at its heart.  Spinning Silver pits the cold of endless winter against the fires of duty, love and sacrifice.  I couldn’t put it down.

Katherine Arden, author of The Girl in the Tower
