C’est le vingt-et-unième anniversaire de Zinnia Gray, un anniversaire d’autant plus spécial que c’est le dernier qu’elle aura jamais. Quand elle était jeune, un accident du travail a laissé Zinnia avec une maladie rare. On ne sait pas grand-chose de sa maladie, juste que personne n’a vécu plus de vingt et un ans.

Sa meilleure amie Charm a l’intention de rendre le dernier anniversaire de Zinnia spécial en lui offrant une expérience complète de la Belle au bois dormant, avec une tour et un rouet. Mais lorsque Zinnia se pique le doigt, quelque chose d’étrange et d’inattendu se produit, et elle se retrouve à traverser les mondes, avec une autre belle au bois dormant, tout aussi désespérée d’échapper à son destin.


It’s Zinnia Gray’s twenty-first birthday, which is extra-special because it’s the last birthday she’ll ever have. When she was young, an industrial accident left Zinnia with a rare condition. Not much is known about her illness, just that no-one has lived past twenty-one.

Her best friend Charm is intent on making Zinnia’s last birthday special with a full sleeping beauty experience, complete with a tower and a spinning wheel. But when Zinnia pricks her finger, something strange and unexpected happens, and she finds herself falling through worlds, with another sleeping beauty, just as desperate to escape her fate.

“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 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

“Harrow creates a lush and magical world with well-developed characters who are easy to love and root for.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“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

“Accompanied by Arthur Rackham’s original illustrations, this quick read is a must for fairy-tale readers.” —Buzzfeed, Best Books of October List
