Editorial Reviews

Review

“A vivid, subversive and feminist reimagining of Sleeping Beauty, where implacable destiny is no match for courage, sisterhood, stubbornness and a good working knowledge of fairy tales.” ―Katherine Arden, bestselling author of the Winternight trilogy

“An exceptional heroine, smart writing, and a winning plot.” ―Nancy Pearl

“It's funny, sharp, queer, and deeply loves its source material...This novella pushes against the hopelessness of inevitability; it dares us to believe in sympathetic magic; it tells us we're connected through story. It might dent your heart a little, but it's good fun.” ―NPR


“Like Into the Spider-Verse for Disney princesses, A Spindle Splintered is a delightful mash-up featuring Alix E. Harrow’s trademark beautiful prose and whip-smart characters.” ―Mike Chen, author of Here and Now and Then

“A wonderfully imaginative, and Queer as hell, tale for those who who wish to be the authors of their own stories.” ―Kalynn Bayron, author of Cinderella is Dead

“This is a self-aware, empowered riff on Sleeping Beauty that manages to be thrilling, funny, smart, and sweet.” ―Sarah Pinsker, Nebula Award-winning author of A Song for a New Day

“Alix Harrow takes traditional fairy tales, turns them inside out, then upside down, and uses them to kick ass. Brava!” ―Ellen Klages, Nebula and World Fantasy Award-winning author of The Green Glass Sea and Passing Strange

A Spindle Splintered is a princess story gone rogue. At times sweet and funny, at others bitingly acerbic, this whirlwind tour of fairyland jabs at the old happily-ever-afters ― and asks whether we might want more than a prince and a palace.”―Kerstin Hall, author of The Border Keeper

“Themes of female friendship, female strength, and female independence leave good feels behind, not to mention some laugh-out-loud bits...This fairy tale–superhero movie mashup is pure entertainment.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Best-selling author Harrow revives and rejuvenates the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale with a feminist twist in her latest... Harrow uses her excellent skill as a storyteller to give agency back to the passive princess.” ―Booklist
