Book Review: A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow

THERE’S the Alix E. Harrow I loved in Ten Thousand Doors!! I struggled mightily with The Once and Future Witches, but Ten athousand Doors was so incredible that I knew I had to come back to her – and A Spindle Splintered reinforced why.

This is a phenomenal story. It is a brilliant reimagining of a classic concept that is utterly and wholly original at the same time. The characterizations are spectacular and full of heart and sass and the perfect blend of strength and vulnerability. The plot and action are consistently engaging and the emotions stirred up, chewed over, and worked through are resonant and true. I am delighted that this is the first in a series!

The audiobook narration was also brilliant, with distinguishable voices that never devolved into caricatures or overly dramatic performances. The narration suited the story to a T, and provided the perfect counterpoint to the writing.

I absolutely cannot wait for the next installment!
