“A vivid, subversive, and feminist reimagining of Sleeping Beauty, where implacable destiny is no match for courage, sisterhood, stubbornness, and a good working knowledge of fairy tales.” —Katherine Arden, bestselling author of the Winternight trilogy, on A Spindle Splintered
“An exceptional heroine, smart writing, and a winning plot.” —Nancy Pearl, on A Spindle Splintered
“A lively, engaging fairy-tale retelling perfect for devouring in a single sitting.” —Kirkus Reviews, on A Mirror Mended
“It’s funny, sharp, queer, and deeply loves its source material…This novella pushes against the hopelessness of inevitability; it dares us to believe in sympathetic magic; it tells us we’re connected through story. It might dent your heart a little, but it’s good fun.” —NPR, on A Spindle Splintered
“Like Into the Spider-Verse for Disney princesses, A Spindle Splintered is a delightful mash-up featuring Alix E. Harrow’s trademark beautiful prose and whip-smart characters.” —Mike Chen, author of Here and Now and Then
“A wonderfully imaginative, and Queer as hell, tale for those who wish to be the authors of their own stories.” —Kalynn Bayron, author of Cinderella is Dead, on A Spindle Splintered
