Fractured Fables by Alix Harrow

Staff Pick

Originally published as separate novellas, A Spindle Splintered and A Mirror Mended are presented here as a one volume account of Zinnia Gray, a terminally ill fairytale fixer. Zinnia is not expected to see her 22nd year, so her best pal throws her the finest 21st birthday party she could hope for: Sleeping Beauty themed, of course. Complete with deserted tower and spinning wheel, it’s an enchanting night until Zin pricks her finger and is thrust into a fairytale world featuring another sleeping beauty just as eager to escape her fate. Several years and many tales later, Zinnia has stayed ahead of her mortality and finds herself in the world of Snow White--though this time she isn’t helping the princess. The Evil Queen learns of her doomed destiny and it’s up to Zin to decide if the heroine of a story has to be the good guy or if the sinister one deserves a happy ending, too.
