The Storyteller's Daughter
Book one in the Storyteller's Series
His shadowed face lit by flames,
Rumpelstiltskin is my name...
For as long as anyone can remember, every child in Westfallen has been born with a Gift, and these Gifts defined them.
Then Cosette is born, Giftless.
An attempt to hide her misfortune brings her before the King, who entraps her to use her Gift as a pawn in his war.
Caught in a lie, Cosette desperately searches for a power strong enough to free her. Intrigued by whispers of an old king and a dark curse, she calls upon Rumpelstiltskin and finds him trapped in a magic deeper than she bargained for. Now, Cosette must fight to reclaim her freedom from the King and break Rumpel’s curse. When time runs out, she’ll lose more than her heart. She’ll lose her life.
Perfect for fans of Gail Carson Levine's Ella Enchanted or Jessica Day George's Princess of Glass.
While this isn't the first book I've written, this is the book that I've chosen to be my debut novel, and I'm so excited to share it with you all! This is a retelling of the tale Rumpelstiltskin, but you'll find it's very different than the original story. It is the first book of a series, each one loosely based on a different fairytale, and each set in the same world with at least one recurring character.
