“June shines in this retelling of Rumpelstiltskin . . . with memorable characters that will appeal to a broad range of fantasy readers.” —SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
If Nor can’t spin gold, she can always spin lies.
When seventeen-year-old Nor rescues a captured faerie in the woods, he gifts her with a magical golden thread she can use to summon him for a favor. Instead, Nor uses it for a con—to convince villagers to buy straw that can be transformed into gold. Her trick works a little too well, attracting the suspicion of Prince Casper, who hates nobody more than a liar. Intent on punishing Nor, he demands that she spin a room of straw into gold and as her reward, he will marry her. Should she refuse or fail, the consequences will be dire.
Gold Spun was such an amazing retelling of Rumpelstitskin. I really did love story line and the characters within the book. Also the cover is so pretty. I was grateful to be a part of this blog tour and to discover this book.
Nor was such a delightful in the book. She smart and very conning. Nor will do anything to put food on the table for her brothers. One day she set a faerie free, and that’s when her troubles started. Now she pretends to make gold into straw and becomes the new king radar. She gets caught up in the royal affairs and a long time feud with faeries.
I’m was so glad to discover this new fantasy read. A little bit of action packed, some romance and magic. It a hard life being a royal in this book. Hopefully Nor can mange to stay alive long enough to see her brothers again.
My favorite character in the book was Pel, aka Rumpelstiltskin. He was so good at being evil with somewhat has a soft side. I enjoy villians having a little bit of nice. Also looking forward to book two after that ending. I would love more of Pel’s backstop next time.
Thanks so much for letting me be apart of this blog tour. Hopefully you guys do book two.
