Hey, y’all, it’s Lila and today I’m bringing y’all something special! A mood board for Lexa Hillyer’s new book, Spindle Fire (in stores now!), and a GIVEAWAY (US ONLY–sorry international peeps)! Lexa’s newest book is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty, which I think is really nice because we haven’t seen many retellings of that tale. The book has magic and fae and sisterly love–so, ya know, basically everything you need for a good story! So check out my mood board for Spindle Fire and the other tour stops and then hurry on over to your local bookshop and grab a copy! You won’t regret it!
Spindle Fire Mood Board
About Spindle Fire
Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king’s headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and her voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close.
And then everything changes, with a single drop of Aurora’s blood–and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken.
As the faerie queen and her army of Vultures prepare to march, Isabelle must race to find a prince who can awaken her sister with the kiss of true love and seal their two kingdoms in an alliance against the queen.
Isabelle crosses land and sea; unearthly, thorny vines rise up the palace walls; and whispers of revolt travel in the ashes on the wind. The kingdom falls to ruin under layers of snow. Meanwhile, Aurora wakes up in a strange and enchanted world, where a mysterious hunter may be the secret to her escape . . . or the reason for her to stay.
Spindle Fire is the first book in a lush fantasy duology set in the dwindling, deliciously corrupt world of the fae and featuring two truly unforgettable heroines.
