The Spindle is the classic fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty, retold from the dark fairy's point of view.
Set in the Celtic world of the fifth century, the Faeries, elemental spirits
charged with caring for the earth and all its inhabitants, are being forgotten
and facing extinction. In a desperate bid for survival, sweet, sycophantic
Violet, faerie of beauty, love and dreams, breaks the faerie law and gives the
barren Queen a child, threatening to dismantle the future of human history. Her
sister Nor, the faerie of death, who desires to be truly loved though she is
shunned by all mankind, must right Violet's wrong and restore Princess Rose to
her correct place in time before it's too late. Her plan is threatened by a
prideful King desperate to maintain his power, the kind, poor gardener Arthur
whose destiny is endangered by his deep love for the Princess he was never
supposed to meet, and Princess Rose herself, an intelligent, passionate young
woman fated to become one of the greatest rulers the land has ever known.
