Gold SpunIf Nor can’t spin gold, she can always spin lies.

When seventeen-year-old Nor rescues a captured faerie in the woods, he gifts her with a magical golden thread she can use to summon him for a favor. Instead, Nor uses it for a con—to convince villagers to buy straw that can be transformed into gold. Her trick works a little too well, attracting the suspicion of Prince Casper, who hates nobody more than a liar. Intent on punishing Nor, he demands that she spin a room of straw into gold and as her reward, he will marry her. Should she refuse or fail, the consequences will be dire.

My Review

“One dark night I’ll walk into your dreams. And tear out your heart to hear your screams.”

Rumpelstiltskin is a Grimm Fairy Tale that we all know and love. We grew up with this tale of an Imp spinning straw into gold for a girl’s firstborn child. It’s spooky. Brandie takes this classic and spins it on its head and fills it with Fae and darkness. You’ve never read a retelling like this one.

The characters in this all stood out and were all well written. They were memorable in their own little way. The good and the bad shined brightly and it was hard to choose a favorite. We all know I like the evil ones with their broody behavior but I really think King Casper was it for me. There was something about the way he handled things that made me swoon. I did wish that there was more of a back story when it came to Nor. We kind of got glimpses here and there but I wanted to see more into her past.

And let’s talk about the worldbuilding. Damn! It was mesmerizing. It wasn’t thrown at you all at once and I appreciated that. It slowly displayed itself as more Fae came into the picture and as things got more intense.

Gold Spun was a fast-paced retelling that shocked me in all the best ways. It was dark and intense with a blossomed love story thrown in. It was phenomenal. I am so excited to see where Brandie takes us with the second book. I’m on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next.
