Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The evil fairy Pernicia has set a curse on Princess Briar-Rose: she is fated to prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall into an endless, poisoned sleep. Katriona, a young fairy, kidnaps the princess in order to save her; she and her aunt raise the child in their small village, where no one knows her true identity. But Pernicia is looking for her, intent on revenge for a defeat four hundred years old. Robin McKinley's masterful version of Sleeping Beauty is, like all of her work, a remarkable literary feat.

Synopsis:

A masterful retelling of "Sleeping Beauty." Cursed by the evil fairy Pernicia, Princess Briar-Rose is kidnapped by the young fairy Katriona in order to save her and is raised by Katriona and her aunt. But the determined Pernicia, intent on revenge for a defeat 400 years before, won't give up her search.

Spindle's End is an imaginative and exciting re-telling of sleeping beauty. It is written in such a way, that one feels drawn to the characters and feels their sorrows and troubles. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, another of Robin McKinley's successes.
