Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik Book Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “One of the year’s strongest fantasy novels” (NPR), an imaginative retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale from the bestselling author of Uprooted.


With the Nebula Award–winning Uprooted, Naomi Novik opened a brilliant new chapter in an already acclaimed career, delving into the magic of fairy tales to craft a love story that was both timeless and utterly of the now. Spinning Silver draws readers deeper into this glittering realm of fantasy, where the boundary between wonder and terror is thinner than a breath, and safety can be stolen as quickly as a kiss.

Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders, but her father’s inability to collect his debts has left his family on the edge of poverty—until Miryem takes matters into her own hands. Hardening her heart, the young woman sets out to claim what is owed and soon gains a reputation for being able to turn silver into gold. When an ill-advised boast draws the attention of the king of the Staryk—grim fey creatures who seem more ice than flesh—Miryem’s fate, and that of two kingdoms, will be forever altered. She will face an impossible challenge and, along with two unlikely allies, uncover a secret that threatens to consume the lands of humans and Staryk alike.

Praise for Spinning Silver

“A perfect tale . . . A big and meaty novel, rich in both ideas and people, with the vastness of Tolkien and the empathy and joy in daily life of Le Guin.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Gorgeous, complex, and magical . . . This is the kind of book that one might wish to inhabit forever.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Cool and clever and . . . dire and wonderful.”—Laini Taylor, author of Strange the Dreamer

“The Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale has never been as captivating. . . . Spinning Silver further cements [Novik’s] place as one of the genre greats.”—Paste

Spinning Silver (Naomi Novik) Book Reviews

Awesome, awesome book!!!!Can’t even begin to describe how great this book is. So much fun to read and such a new and unusual story! Read it as soon as you can!!!.Score: 5/5

I couldn’t stop reading this.This fantastic book came out three days ago and I wish I had read it slower to continue enjoying it but I couldn’t help myself. After reading Uprooted, I impatiently waited for this to be released and am glad I pre-ordered it so that when it was finally released I could devour it like the best morsel of food in the world. I’ve already gifted it to my sister and will be highly recommending it to everyone. Every page it felt climactic, I really enjoyed this style of storytelling and world building, it was so easy to slip into the lives and personalities of the characters and read just a few more pages past bed time to see what would happen next. Thank you Naomi for this amazing book..Score: 5/5

The writing here is just delicious.I don’t know of a better way to put it. There is no way to properly praise this book without spoilering it. I’ll just say that each of the characters is vivid and alive and human. The relationships are complex and beautifully drawn. The story is engaging. I was happily in tears at the end. Can’t recommend this enough..Score: 5/5

Pleasant but forgettableA pleasant read, not too deep or complicated. No details or world building that ever fully immerse you, but enough to keep the story moving..Score: 4/5

Fabulous.I have been non stop reading this book, wanting to see what happens next. Strong female characters, witty & multifaceted.......highly recommend!!!!.Score: 5/5

Best Book I’ve Read In A Long TimeI’ve read all of Naomi Novik’s other books and loved them, this one I enjoyed as much or more than any of the others. What a wonderful fairytale with two strong, determined female characters, not really a romance at all but with a happy romantic ending. It gave me a warm feeling, it’s a great escape..Score: 5/5

Spinning SilverExcellent read. Very difficult to put down. Naomi Novik has written another best seller with suspense, action and a little romance..Score: 5/5

Fun FantasyThis book does a great job developing the characters and getting you invested in the plot. It had a few twists and turns that P just turning yeah wasn’t that difficult to follow. I enjoyed it.Score: 4/5

Simply AmazingLike Uprooted, I devoured this book. Naomi Novik has the ability to conjure wonderful stories full of deep feelings despite a simple brilliant flow of writing. Excellent book to read over and over!.Score: 5/5

Longboard and drawn outDecent story line, but lengthy for what is was; could have been condensed a bit more. many of the storylines within the book did not seem necessary and I could not get into them or really understand the relevance of having a few by the end of the book..Score: 3/5

Good read but too drawn outI read this book on a whim and was pleased after reading it and finding that I really enjoyed it. After the first 1000 pages. The book just took long to get to the climax of the story. Added to this was the change of POV to minor characters which I found didn’t add much and took away from the affect of major scenes and I found myself skimming the book at times. Overall I would recommend reading this but do know that it is a long read and can drag at times..Score: 4/5

Alright for sureShe’s honestly one of my favorite writers. Super compelling read but I really disliked being super confused about the POV switches, especially because you don’t know they switch until their name is mentioned lol. Eventually it’s gets easier to distinguish and then there’s another random POV added towards the end. But other than that, the story line was really well written. Loved Myrim.Score: 4/5

Amazing!This was an absolutely mesmerizing read! I loved every single word! Beyond amazing! I’m super sad it’s over :(.Score: 5/5

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!Such a captivating narrative that kept hooked from start to finished. Was reading this non-stop in allmy classes and could not sleep until i Finished it. Novik’s previous novel Uprooted had quite the same effect on me so I’ve been on the lookout for her work ever since..Score: 5/5
