As an ardent admirer of fairy-tales, one of my favorite things to read are re-tellings. I love seeing how something that is canon and well known is made new and fresh. A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow is no simple re-telling, it's a re-mix and a wonderful one at that. Sleeping Beauty is a beloved tale, which becomes something totally unique under Harrow's treatment. It has some of the elements we know and love, like a curse and needle, but everything that happens after is utterly unique. I really loved Zinnia and her adventures and found myself enchanted. I am so excited for others to read this book and ecstatic to know there is a second book in the new Fractured Fairytales series!
