Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Sisters Aurora and Isabelle have always been close, even though Isabelle is reviled as the king's stubborn illegitimate daughter and beautiful Aurora is poised to marry the prince and become a dutiful queen. They even have their own secret language; they must, for faeries took Isbe's sight and Aurora's voice when both were small. After a moment of anger between them causes Isbe to run away, Aurora pursues her, only to be caught in the magic web of a faerie queen thought long dead. Tensions rise as Isbe desperately works to save her sister while beginning to see the larger magical forces at work, and the women start to understand the powerful ways they can shape their own futures. While there isn't much new ground covered here, fantasy fans and fractured fairy tale lovers will easily fall into Isbe and Aurora's world. Fast-paced and full of mystery, danger, and romance, this title will appeal to voracious and reluctant readers alike. Aurora and Isbe grow from sheltered palace dwellers to strong women becoming aware of their own ignorance and the ways they have been manipulated. A cliff-hanger ending leaves the futures of several characters unknown, and readers will surely want to find out the fates of the two heroines, their love interests, and the corrupt fae who rule the land. VERDICT A strong addition to the fantasy/fairy-tale/romance genre, and a great pick for those who can't get enough of it.—Kelsey Johnson-Kaiser, St. Paul Public Library

Review

“Inventing a distinctively gritty netherworld that weaves reality with shimmering magic and smoky-mirrored illusions, Hillyer’s writing is freshly vivid....An innovative take on magic and the price of transformation, this will tempt readers to reach for Book 2—and expect some answers.” (Kirkus)

“This story is characterized by lovely, introspective prose; readers looking for action may be best served elsewhere, but those who appreciate a beautifully written journey into the hearts of two sisters will find much to relish here.” (Booklist)

“With its engaging heroines and delicious prose, Spindle Fire pulled me into a richly detailed world full of intrigue and magic. Lexa Hillyer has created a refreshing take on a classic tale, one that traps you in its spell and doesn’t let go.” (Amy Ewing, New York Times bestselling author of the Lone City trilogy)

“Absorbing. Poetic. In Spindle Fire, Lexa Hillyer draws the walls between dreams and reality with shimmering grace…and phrases of such beauty I had to read many of them twice.” (Jodi Lynn Anderson, author of Tiger Lily)

“The writing is lovely, the sisters indomitable, and as the truths behind the faerie legends were revealed, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.” (Kendare Blake, author of New York Times bestselling novel Three Dark Crowns)

“Aurora and Isbe are no delicate flowers, and Hillyer’s depiction of Isbe’s blindness is especially resonant. There is romance, but it’s the devotion between these sisters that makes this story sing and that will leave readers eager to continue their story.” (Publishers Weekly)

“The author, an award-winning poet, has created a lush, lyrical backdrop for the memorable characters in this sinister fairytale retelling that will have teen fantasy fans waiting with bated breath for the conclusion of Aurora and Isabelle’s story.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
