Reviews

#1 Indie Bestseller

When it comes to reimagined fairy tales, the reigning queen of the genre is Marissa Meyer... This dark, enchanting book is Meyer at the height of her powers -- crafting a new tale with an old-school feel where nobody is guaranteed a happily-everafter. It is fresh and utterly engrossing while also familiar -- just what Meyer does best.--The New York Times


The queen of fairy-tale retellings is back, this time with "Rumpelstiltskin" as her inspiration, and the result is a gorgeously intricate tale that will have readers locked in from the start.
... Meyer weaves an enchanting tale filled with whimsically magical moments and some serious suspense. [She] knows how to capture fantastical worlds, and this one is pure perfection for her fans and new readers alike. --Booklist

Cornered by the wicked Erlking on the night of the wild hunt, Serilda claims that she can spin straw into gold, a lie that saves her life but lands her in the Erlking's castle on the next full moon with a room full of straw and an impossible task. Fortunately, Gild, an impish (and attractive) poltergeist shows up, offering help in exchange for Serilda's golden necklace. Gild easily fulfills his end of the bargain and does so a second time for Serilda's ring; when the Erlking makes the third demand, however, Serilda has nothing left to give Gild, and the romance that has sparked between them only complicates things further. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, recommended

Meyer explores the power of fiction in this inventive "Rumpelstiltskin" reimagining. Intricate worldbuilding and star-crossed romance help temper the Erlking's brutality, and ...well-drawn characters will leave readers craving a sequel. --Publishers Weekly

Meyer flips tradition with a simple question: What if the king whom the miller's daughter marries is the villain, and Rumpelstiltskin is her only way out? ...The queen of fairy tale retellings has spun what is sure to be another best seller. --School Library Journal
