Product description

Two girl treasure hunters. One sleeping prince. A hundred-year-old curse and one very angry witch. Fantasy with m/f and f/f romance for fans of CINDERELLA IS DEAD. A pacey, fractured twist on a classic fairy tale!

Filore, a treasure hunter with a knack for riddles, is busy running from her own deadly curse, when she pricks her finger on a spindle. Bound to the sleeping prince Briar Rose with the spindle’s magic – and chosen as the only person who can wake him – Fi is stuck with the prince’s ghost until she can break his ancient curse and save his kingdom.

She’s going to need a partner. A warrior huntswoman with an axe to grind (literally), Shane couldn’t care less about curses and ancient texts. But instead of riches, the two girls find trouble.

Dark magic, witch hunters, nightmarish beasts – and of course, curses – all stand in their way as Fi and Shane undertake the dangerous journey into a forgotten kingdom where the sleeping prince’s body waits.

Our March 2022 Teen Book of the Month

My Teen Book of the Month this March is The Bone Spindle. Our protagonist Fi is busy running from her own deadly curse when she pricks her finger on a spindle. Bound to the sleeping prince and chosen as the only person who can wake him, Fi is stuck with the prince’s ghost until she can break the ancient curse and save his kingdom. With her partner Shane, the two girls soon find trouble; dark magic, witch hunters, nightmarish beasts – and of course, curses. All this and more stands in their way as Fi and Shane undertake the dangerous journey into a forgotten kingdom where the sleeping prince’s body waits.

This reimagined fairy tale is the first in a series from debut author Leslie Vedder. A fractured twist on the classic Sleeping Beauty story, this is perfect for fans of Cinderella is Dead and A Curse So Dark and Lonely. It has a brilliant feminist twist of a female treasure hunter rescuing a sleeping prince, and also includes both male/female and female/female romances. It’s also what we call a “Clean Teen” novel, so the content is appropriate for all teenage readers. We predict this book will definitely be taking BookTok by storm, so one to add to your “To Be Read” pile as soon as possible!
