Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m waiting on Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer. The title grabbed my attention, no lie, BUT it was the book’s blurb that really hooked me. Two sisters, one caught in a sleeping curse and the other on the outside to fight for her kingdom. Plus I read that this is a retelling combining not one but two of my favorites: Sleeping Beauty and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Ummm….I need this ASAP please 😀Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer

It all started with the burning of the spindles.
It all started with a curse...
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 a lush fantasy set in the dwindling, deliciously corrupt world of the fae and featuring two truly unforgettable heroines.
What are you not-so-patiently waiting on this Wednesday?
