New Arrival: Spindlekin
Jean Davis adds a new book to MichiganReads with Spindlekin!
The poison that runs through Amira’s veins must be drained away every day or she will die. Kept company by only a stream of temporary maids and the king and queen when they have time, the young princess dreams of what lies outside the castle walls, a sibling to play with, and a future she will likely never live to see. As Amira’s strength wanes, the king thinks that her salvation may lay in the distant forest, but the Spindelskov is inhabited by the nightmarish Spindelkin. The king and queen are unwilling to face them, fearing the creatures will plunge all of Katra into ruin. When the queen gives birth to a prince, Amira begs her maid to help her sneak out to meet her brother. Born too early, he is deformed with a tail and golden scales. The queen declares him a monster. Not bothered by his appearance, Amira promises the tiny prince that she will help him. Gathering her remaining strength, Amira sets out on a journey through the Spindelskov, searching for answers that may save them both. 2022 Finalist – American Writing Awards Recommended Read – Author Shout Reader Ready Awards 2023
