Book Summary:

A steampunk Sleeping Beauty story from the author of?Beauty and the Clockwork Beast.

Doctor Isla Cooper is cursed. Literally. Each night, at the stroke of midnight she falls into a death-like sleep from which she cannot be awakened for six hours. To make it worse, the curse has an expiration date–after a year, it becomes permanent. And the year is almost up.

In a desperate attempt to find Malette–the witch who cursed her–Isla blackmails her way onto Daniel Pickett’s private airship bound for the Caribbean, only to discover she’s traveling with three illegal shapeshifters and the despicable Nigel Crowe, a government official determined to hunt down and exterminate every shapeshifter in England. Isla and Daniel must work together to keep the identities of the shapeshifters hidden while coming to terms with their own hidden secrets, and their blossoming attraction to each other.

Filled with suspense, intrigue, and plenty of romance,?Kiss of the Spindle?is steampunk Sleeping Beauty story. It is a race against the clock as Isla and Daniel try to hunt down the elusive Malette before Isla’s death-like sleep becomes permanent.

 

Just wow! I liked this story even better than the first steampunk proper romance, Beauty and the Clockwork Beast. I need to find more books by Nancy Campbell Allen. She is an amazing author. She creates a unique world for her characters with unexpected twists. I always love fairytale retellings. This one is quite original, with some elements from the classic story we know and love. I found myself laughing out loud repeatedly at the witty dialogue and fun characters. There are some amazing secondary characters in this story that I would love to see have their own story in the future. Isla and Daniel captured my heart. I almost want to go back and reread their story now. These characters all really came to life for me. Can’t wait for more!
