What is a maiden to do when her prince is not a prince, her hair won't stop growing, and someone has cursed her to sleep for 300 years?
In Polyhymnia's case, it seems expedient to get up with the help of a kiss or two, trailing her hair behind her, and find out who did it. Nothing quite works out as planned, however. Poly can't be sure if that's because she never seems to be able to remember things like the mysterious spindle that keeps showing up around her, or if it's the fault of the wizard who woke her but never stops long enough to explain anything.
Poly is determined in two things: One, that she will find out who cursed her to sleep and meddled with her memories. Two: that she will absolutely not fall in love with the irritating wizard who seems to need to keep kissing her back into the real world…
Fun magical mystery
I stayed up way too late reading Spindle. Very enjoyable. I look forward to reading more.
Fast paced fantasy
I really really wanted to love this book. The storyline is there. I like the concept, but there is no world building. From page one, it’s a dizzying, fast paced dialogue that makes me feel like I’m missing something. I like the characters, but they could be further developed. It’s a good, quick read if you like magic. I’m debating whether to continue with the next book.
