Publisher's Summary

Marjan is a poor, crippled orphan girl, but she is happy living with her aunt and uncle in the sultan's city. Her hero is the beautiful Shahrazad, who has bewitched the sultan with her nightly tales and thus keeps him from killing other wives. Marjan wonders what Shahrazad's life is like in the silken rooms of the palace. She will soon find out.

Taken to the palace to help Shahrazad find new tales, Marjan realizes that the lovely woman is a prisoner of the cycle of stories. To save her hero, Marjan must not only dodge the dangerous intrigues of the court but also begin a new chapter of her own life.

Popular author Susan Fletcher's fascination with storytelling shines from her version of Arabian Nights. Listeners of all ages will love this fresh approach to the ancient collection of fabulous tales, made even more lyrical with Suzanne Toren's musical narration.

    "Story telling saves a life"

    Starts a little slow but then is a great story. Exciting and well written. We wanted to know what would happened and worked to connect characters as we listened.

    Story
    "Surprise and suspense in a Sultan's harem"
    What made the experience of listening to Shadow Spinner the most enjoyable?

    Shadow Spinner had a range of interesting characters, colorful settings that ranged from a palace, the palace's harem, the palace's rooftops, the streets of the poorest people outside the palace, and plenty of action. This book will hold your interest from beginning to end.


    What other book might you compare Shadow Spinner to and why?

    I have not read a book like this one.


    What about Suzanne Toren’s performance did you like?

    She represented the character's voices very well, and held me in suspense.
