Mom - Waiting on Wed

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m waiting on Spindle by E.K. Johnston. I LOVED her A Thousand Nights, which was a retelling of 1001 nights. The author wove an amazing story that was breathtaking in its execution. When I realized she had written a sequel loosely based of the classic Sleeping Beauty, I immediately added it to my TBR. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of this book!

Series: A Thousand Nights #2
Published by Disney-Hyperion on 2016-12-06
Length: 368 pages

The world is made safe by a woman...but it is a very big world.

It has been generations since the Storyteller Queen drove the demon out of her husband and saved her country from fire and blood. Her family has prospered beyond the borders of their village, and two new kingdoms have sprouted on either side of the mountains where the demons are kept prisoner by bright iron, and by the creatures the Storyteller Queen made to keep them contained.

But the prison is crumbling. Through years of careful manipulation, a demon has regained her power. She has made one kingdom strong and brought the other to its knees, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. When a princess is born, the demon is ready with the final blow: a curse that will cost the princess her very soul, or force her to destroy her own people to save her life.

The threads of magic are tightly spun, binding princess and exiled spinners into a desperate plot to break the curse before the demon can become a queen of men. But the web of power is dangerously tangled--and they may not see the true pattern until it is unspooled.

About E.K. Johnston

E.K. Johnston had several jobs and one vocation before she became a published writer. If she's learned anything, it's that things turn out weird sometimes, and there's not a lot you can do about it. Well, that and how to muscle through awkward fanfic because it's about a pairing she likes.

When she's not on tumblr, she dreams of travel and Tolkien. Or writes books. It really depends on the weather.

What are you not-so-patiently waiting on this Wednesday?
