Deceiving an empire is a treacherous game.

Tanwen and the Corsyth weavers race to collect the strands of an ancient cure that might save Gryfelle. But Tanwen has a secret—Gryfelle isn’t the only one afflicted by the weaver’s curse.

As Queen Braith struggles to assert her rule, a new arrival throws her tenuous claim to the Tirian throne into question. Braith’s heart is turned upside down, and she’s not sure she can trust anyone—least of all herself.

The puppet master behind Gareth’s rise to power has designs on Tanwen and the story weavers and will stop at nothing to reclaim the throne. A plot to incite the angry peasants of Tir takes shape, and those dearest to Tanwen will be caught in the crossfire. As the fight for Tir consumes the realm, no one can remain innocent.

My Review

You cannot, I repeat cannot, end a book like that and expect me to wait who knows how long for a sequel!! That ending killed me! 

Everything in this book was amazing! The characters their personalities deepened, the plot thickened, and my love for this series grew. I honestly cannot put into words my feelings for this book…..I have so many yet I can’t seem to get the words. I also don’t know what to say without spoiling anything.

I loved this sequel. I loved the adventure that I went on with these characters. I went through laughs, butterflies, tears, and so many more emotions. The characters were developed so much through this book. I feel in love with them over and over again. 

The relationships of various characters also developed so naturally that I want to shout about this amazing book from the rooftops. I am definitely pro-Mor and I want more of him in book 3. Please give me more of him, Ms. Franklin!! #moreMor

Overall, since I can’t get a decent review out due to spoilers, just take my words that this book was an amazing and definitely a wonderful sequel to the first book.

*FTC: I received this book from Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not required to write a positive review.*
