A Spindle Splintered (Fractured Fables #1)

A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow book review

Genre: Fantasy/Fairy Tale Retellings

Order on Amazon | Order on

This novella is sort of a modern, split-world retelling of Sleeping Beauty. It’s about Zinnia Gray, a young woman with a fatal disease who likely doesn’t have much longer to live.

On her 21st birthday, she pricks her finger on a spinning wheel, and finds herself somewhere very unexpected. Along the way, she meets someone who’s not so different from herself.

In this story, Harrow takes the passive Disney version of Sleeping Beauty and breathes new life into it, making it much more interesting – and giving the villain a more complex story of her own.
