Doctor Isla Cooper is cursed. Literally. Each night, at the stroke of midnight she falls into a deep sleep from which she cannot be awakened for six hours. To make it worse, the curse has an expiration date—after a year, she will fall asleep forever. 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 a 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 deathlike sleep becomes permanent.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Justine Eyre narrates a steampunk “Sleeping Beauty” that combines fairy-tale and paranormal elements…Eyre portrays Doctor Cooper as a smart, confident woman at the top of her professional game who has suffered a major personal setback. Captain Pickett is similarly presented as professional and capable by Eyre, but with a deep emotional core. When the two finally realize their feelings for each other, Eyre captures the passion and the nerves of the moment.” AudioFile
“A unique take on a classic fairy tale…filled with romance, action and adventure.” BookPage
“Delivers pure reading joy…Allen turns Sleeping Beauty’s passive story upside down with Isla’s active competence and frustration with how the curse interferes with her work; fans of strong heroines will be deeply satisfied.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Allen crafts a witty romance set against an exciting steampunk backdrop, capitalizing on both the sweet appeal of a Victorian romance and the adventure of a light fantasy.” Booklist
