The Bone Spindle
The Bone Spindle | Leslie Vedder
13 posts | 8 read | 13 to read
A pacey, fractured twist on a classic fairy tale! Fiore, a treasure hunter with a knack for riddles, is busy running from her own deadly curse, when she pricks her finger on a spindle. Bound to the sleeping prince Briar Rose with the spindle's magic - and chosen as the only person who can wake him - Fi is stuck with the prince's ghost until she can break his ancient curse and save his kingdom. She's going to need a partner. A warrior huntswoman with an axe to grind (literally), Shane couldn't care less about curses and ancient texts. But instead of riches, the two girls find trouble. Dark magic, witch hunters, nightmarish beasts - and of course, curses - all stand in their way as Fi and Shane undertake the dangerous journey into a forgotten kingdom where the sleeping prince's body waits.

I needed this book as soon as I read the summary. It‘s everything I want. Give me more gender-reversed fairy tales with a side of WLW romance, please. It‘s not perfect, but it‘s pretty damn close. The banter is funny, the characters are well-developed, and the romance plot lines don‘t seem too forced despite a bit of insta-love… I‘m looking forward to seeing all the relationships deepen in the sequel, including the friendship between Fi and Shane.

Great worldbuilding, plot, and characters. The twists are a bit predictable but I love fairy tale retellings so much.

What if Sleeping Beauty had to be woken by a cursed historian and a runaway treasure hunting princess? Filore & Shane partner up to find treasure and break a 100 year curse.

An interesting take on a traditional fairytale. Info dump heavy in the first 1/2, but starts to pick up speed. I liked the friendship between our two main characters, & I appreciated that destiny & true love were separate from each other. But an unsatisfying ending.🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

So here's what I'm thinking for this round of #lmpbc- have you read any of these? Anything you would especially like to read, or object to? The last one isn't necessarily a fairy tale retelling but I think has fairy tale vibes?
@Bookwormjillk @ozma.of.oz @Endowarrior21

ozma.of.oz LOL The Bone Spindle is one I‘m considering too! 😂 Also, I loved A Spindle Splintered! The other two look great as well! 12mo
Johanna414 @ozma.of.oz haha great minds! 12mo
Bookwormjillk I recently read (and loved) The Book of Lost Things, but the rest look good! 12mo

Johanna414 @ozma.of.oz are you ok if I go with The Bone Spindle or were you really hoping to pick that one? If so, I can research a few other options to buy. @Bookwormjillk @Endowarrior21 12mo
ozma.of.oz I‘m totally good with you picking The Bone Spindle! I‘ve actually got six choices I‘m trying to narrow down. 😁 12mo
Johanna414 @ozma.of.oz haha perfect! Thanks! 12mo
