The world is made safe by a woman . . . but it is a very big world.

It has been generations since the Storyteller Queen saved her country from fire and blood - but now the kingdom of Kharuf is threatened by a demon gathering power. When a princess is born, the demon is ready with her final blow: a curse that will cost that princess her very soul, or force her to destroy her own people to save her life.

The threads of magic are tightly spun, binding princess and exiled spinners into a desperate quest to break the curse. But the web of power is dangerously tangled - and they may not see the true pattern until it is unspooled.

Kingdom of Sleep, by the critically acclaimed E. K. Johnston, is a spellbinding retelling of an enchanting fairy tale with the power of story at its heart.

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Praise for this book

"The...Spindle is both mythic and true, old beyond reckoning and dazzlingly, gloriously new. The Storyteller Queen lives, and her name is E. K. Johnston." - Rachel Hartman
