Spindle by E.K. Johnston
Publication Date: 6 December 2016
The Book Depository | Amazon
The world is made safe by a woman...but it is a very big world.
has been generations since the Storyteller Queen drove the demon out of
her husband and saved her country from fire and blood. Her family has
prospered beyond the borders of their village, and two new kingdoms have
sprouted on either side of the mountains where the demons are kept
prisoner by bright iron, and by the creatures the Storyteller Queen made
to keep them contained.
But the prison is crumbling. Through
years of careful manipulation, a demon has regained her power. She has
made one kingdom strong and brought the other to its knees, waiting for
the perfect moment to strike. When a princess is born, the demon is
ready with the final blow: a curse that will cost the princess her very
soul, or force her to destroy her own people to save her life.
threads of magic are tightly spun, binding princess and exiled spinners
into a desperate plot to break the curse before the demon can become a
queen of men. But the web of power is dangerously tangled--and they may
not see the true pattern until it is unspooled. (summary from Goodreads)
Oh, yes. I really enjoyed A Thousand Nights so I'm certainly intrigued by this companion novel.
