What a tangled world she weaves...

For generations, Spinsters have been called by Arras’s Manipulation Services to work the looms and determine what people eat, where they live, how many children they have, and even when they die. Gifted with the rare ability to weave time with matter, Adelice is exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But once you become a Spinster, there is no turning back. Now caught in a web of lies and intrigue, Adelice must decide who to trust: her kind mentor, Enora; the handsome and mysterious valet Jost; or the charismatic Guild ambassador Cormac Patton. They each have secrets, but Adelice is about to unravel the deadliest one of all, a sinister truth that could destroy reality as she knows it.

In a powerful and original debut about a world where the Guild decides everything, one extraordinary girl dares to defy the power of men and the boundaries of love.

  1. OMG, I love the Virtual Dance entry! You cannot believe the look my dad gave me when I danced around the room! c:
    I think he wants to commit me to a mental institution . . . Do you think they'd let me use the computer too look at Reading Teen's book reviews?

  3. I started bouncing around on the chair & the cat on my lap got very upset. I think that she wants me to tell you what you can do with your dance.lol This sounds like a book of a different color. It's different than the usual out there, which is great. I think that it's going to be a big hit when we find out where her tangled web leads. Thanks for the giveaway. ;-)
