Shadow Spinner – Susan Fletcher

The search for a story can be as dangerous as any intrigue a story reveals.

Based on the story of ‘Arabian Nights’, Marjan lives in a land that was filled with terror – an enraged Sultan (whose wife cheated on him) marries a new girl every night and has her beheaded in the morning. Until he married Shahrazad, who tells him a new story every night and earns herself a reprieve each day by leaving him in suspense with huge cliffhangers… however, she is running out of stories. Marjan – a crippled servant girl – knows one that she doesn’t know and subsequently gets caught up in the intrigues of the harem, the dangers of the street and the anger of the Sultan.
