Enebish longs to return to her old life as a warrior and forget about Nariin, where she lost control of the darkness and massacred a caravan. Only Serik makes life bearable at the monastery, and his crazy ideas are what get her into trouble. Not all is lost, though, when her sister offers her a chance to redeem herself: capture Temujin, the leader of the rebel band reaping havoc on the kingdom. But as Enebish hunts him, she finds he is the only person keeping the shepherds from starving, and she has to decide who to trust: her sister or the rebels.
Nothing is as it seems, no one is who you think, leaving me unable to stop until the book was finished. The characters are well defined, and Enebish is relatable, longing for something only to find it may not be what she truly wants. Night Spinner is well told with a vast world and many different nations with different beliefs, traditions, and cultures. As a retelling of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, it starts with a familiar setting and similarities are woven throughout the story, but by the end, it has taken on a life of its own.
