Título: Spinning Starlight

Autor: R. C. Lewis

Editora: Hyperion

Páginas: 352

Género: Young Adult; Fantasy; Retelling

Sinopse: Sixteen-year-old heiress and paparazzi darling Liddi Jantzen hates the spotlight. But as the only daughter in the most powerful tech family in the galaxy, it’s hard to escape it. So when a group of men shows up at her house uninvited, she assumes it’s just the usual media-grubs. That is, until shots are fired.
Liddi escapes, only to be pulled into an interplanetary conspiracy more complex than she ever could have imagined. Her older brothers have been caught as well, trapped in the conduits between the planets. And when their captor implants a device in Liddi’s vocal cords to monitor her speech, their lives are in her hands: One word, and her brothers are dead.
Desperate to save her family from a desolate future, Liddi travels to another world, where she meets the one person who might have the skills to help her bring her eight brothers home-a handsome dignitary named Tiav. But without her voice, Liddi must use every bit of her strength and wit to convince Tiav that her mission is true. With the tenuous balance of the planets deeply intertwined with her brothers’ survival, just how much is Liddi willing to sacrifice to bring them back? Haunting and mesmerizing, this retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Wild Swans fuses all the heart of the classic tale with a stunning, imaginative world in which a star-crossed family fights for its very survival.

Razões Para Estar na Wishlist

  • É mais um retelling de um conto de fadas, neste caso pega no conto de Hans Christian Andersen, The Wild Swans, dá-lhe um toque diferente e recria uma história totalmente nova.
  • Já li outro livro desta autora, o Stitching Snow, e adorei (opinião).
  • Estou com muita curiosidade para ver se este livro é tão bom como o que li anteriormente. Se assim for esta autora passa para a minha lista de favoritas.
  • As capas são lindas 🙂
