about

The world is made safe by a woman . . . but it is a very big world.

It 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.

The 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. "The most powerful stories encompass a paradox. Spindle is both mythic and true, old beyond reckoning and dazzlingly, gloriously new. You''ve known this story all your life; you have never heard its like before. The Storyteller Queen lives, and her name is E. K. Johnston." -- Rachel Hartman, New York Times best-selling author of Seraphina
E.K. Johnston had several jobs and one vocation before she became a published writer. If she''s learned anything, it''s that things turn out weird sometimes, and there''s not a lot you can do about it. Well, that and how to muscle through awkward fanfic because it''s about a pairing she likes. You can follow Kate on Twitter (@ek_johns...
