Book Tour- Gold Spun

Howdy booklovers!! Welcome to my stop on the Gold Spun book tour hosted by TBR and Beyond Tours 🥰 I’m so excited to share my review with you all!

Gold Spun is a Rumpelstiltskin retelling with a unique twist! If you love retellings as much as I do then this is definitely a story for you!

Synopsis:

Content Warnings: One mild scene of cutting for blood magic.

If Nor can’t spin gold, she can always spin lies.

When seventeen year old Nor rescues a captured faerie in the woods, he gifts her with a magical golden thread she can use to summon him for a favor. Instead, Nor uses it for a con to convince villagers to buy straw that can be transformed into gold. Her trick works a little too well, attracting the suspicion of Prince Casper, who hates nobody more than a liar. Intent on punishing Nor, he demands that she spin a room of straw into gold and as her reward, he will marry her. Should she refuse or fail, the consequences will be dire

Review:

A cute and unique spin on the traditional tale of Rumpelstiltskin

I’m glad I got to read this book it was an easy read with a morally grey MC who came from a poor background and suddenly finds herself thrust into a palace and courtly life. Two men, one blissfully unaware of his love rival forms an intriguing love triangle. Forbidden love and a relationship based on lies. And whilst living a life of deception our MC is also a force for hope and good for those who are underprivileged within the kingdom. There are a lot of court politics at play which adds a healthy does of scandal and intrigue.

Nor is unapologetically upfront, she doesn’t hold back or cower in the face of the nobility and rich folk. She has no issue with telling them they’re spoilt and I think that’s what makes her a particularly likeable character.

Overall this is a fun easy read, compelling enough to make you want the next one immediately to see if your hunches play out. The writing style is pleasant and easy to follow. There was in my opinion some filler but maybe it’ll be relevant in the next book! Definitely recommend for fans of retellings. I’m looking forward to seeing how the story plays out.

Brandie June loves storytelling in all sorts of formats, whether she is marketing animated movies or writing fantasy novels. Most of her early life she was on stage or at least as close to the front row as she could get. Initially an actor, she got her B.A. in Theatre from UCLA and branched out into costume design and playwriting, eventually getting her M.B.A. Her first stand-alone play, a dark comedy about Oscar Wilde, premiered at the Hollywood Fringe Festival to a sold-out run and won the Encore Producers Award. As a writer, she is especially passionate about fantasy and mythology, has published several pieces in anthology, and is a recent finalist with The Writers of the Future Award. Her debut novel, Gold Spun, is a fresh retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin tale through the miller daughter’s POV.
