Publisher's Summary

Nor was once the happy daughter of a miller, but that was before her father died in the Southern War and soldiers set fire to her village. Now, she's a 17-year-old swindler, performing whatever tricks and deceptions will bring in enough coin to feed her and her brothers. One day she finds a faerie boy being held captive by outlaws. Though Nor knows all the tales of the fay and their deadly blood magic, she goes against her better judgement and frees him. In return, the beautiful and mysterious faerie, Pel, gifts her with a golden thread.

Nor decides to use the thread to convince local villages that she can spin straw into gold, but just as the con begins, Prince Casper arrives in town. Seeing through her deception, Casper intends to make an example of Nor, forcing her to spin all her straw into gold, with the promise of marrying her should she succeed. But should she fail, her life and those of her brothers will be forfeit. In desperation, Nor calls on Pel for help, even knowing that his dark magic comes with a price.

From thief to future queen, Nor's story has only just begun. Attacks from the fay force Nor to question her friendship with Pel, while preparing for her life as a queen makes Nor wonder if this is the life she truly wants to lead.

Pretty good!

I bought this book without any reviews or anything to go on but decided I would give it a try. It was nothing mine blowing but I did enjoy it. Some of the dialogue between the characters was a little flat and basic but I’m looking forward to the sequel and I will definitely read it

Excellent book

Gold Spun is an excellent read, not only for young adults but for any age. It is very well written, as the characters come to life. And the story keeps you on the edge of your seat, rooting for Nor.

Good but not fan of the narrator

I really liked this story and very disappointed I can’t jump straight into the sequel! The narration of the male parts were just too wooden, they just always sounded like they were in pain which became very annoying. Other than that I’d recommend this book.
