2 Stars/5

Thanks to W R Gingell for giving me this book to review.

Poly has been woken by a kiss after she has been asleep for 300 years, but the man who woke her, Luck is not a prince but then Poly isn’t a princess either. Poly cannot figure out who would want to curse her and why, why she has no memories of the day she went to sleep and how come her hair keeps on growing at an extraordinary rate. With someone trying to kill her and Luck, will Poly be able to figure out why she was cursed in time. As poly discovers breaking the curse is just the beginning of the story.

Spindle has an interesting twist on the sleeping beauty story but I felt the plot and writing was a bit too complex and it was sometimes hard to keep things straight. I think part of this was that it was very slow and I felt some points were not properly explained. It had lots of twists and some romance.

Poly is a smart, sensible girl who adapts well to new situations and is kind. I think some of my confusion is from Luck as he is all over the place, is an enigma and I had no idea what he was thinking.

Spindle is an ok book with an interesting story idea but I found it a bit too confusing. I would recommend Spindle to fans of W R Gingell other books.
