Get tangled up in "Crewel" by Gennifer Albin
In Crewel by Gennifer Albin, Adelice Lewys has the super rare ability of weaving time with matter. She can embroider the very fabric of life, and she’s been taught to keep this gift hidden—until she makes a tragic mistake that changes her life completely.
Her power is exactly what the Guild, rulers of the world of Arras, are searching for—and they’re coming to find her tonight.
A loom of lies
Adelice has been taken from her family forever but she doesn’t go quietly. Chosen by the Guild to become part of the elite group of Spinsters means she has privileges, eternal beauty and total power over what people think, who they marry and when they die.
In a world ruled completely by men—where women are totally powerless, second-class citizens—it’s every girl’s dream to become a Spinster. Oh, and did we mention that women must always wear makeup and heels in public? Ouch. It also means that boys and girls grow up separated by gender—which is why sixteen-year-old Adelice has never been in love (or even kissed a boy).
As the evil Guild abuse their power, anyone who defies them is completely ripped from the loom—and gone from the world forever. They force the Spinsters to manipulate society by weaving minds in favor of their complete control of Arras, but strong-willed Adelice decides she can stop at nothing until justice and light is brought upon the evil Guild.
Adelice is tangled in a loom of lies and deceit. Should she trust the handsome and mysterious Jost? Will she ever see her family again?
In a new world full of secrets, it’s the strong bonds of family and love that will help Adelice unravel the deadliest one of all—a truth so disturbing that it could destroy the woven reality as she knows it.
