Interesting concept, so-so execution.



If Adelice has the power to see the weave and manipulate it anytime, why didn't she just weave out Cormac or her other enemies? Is it because she doesn't want to kill? If so, this should have been more explicit in the book.

This was a really good book! I loved the whole weaving reality premise. I thought Adelice was a very mature protagonist and loved that she thought for herself but still listened to others. I wasn't too impressed with any of the guys in the book and thought it would have been better without them altogether. I did totally see one of the plot twists with the guys coming on. As for the ending, I didn't really see that. Can't wait to read book two and find out what happens with Adelice. ( )

Got swept up in this and enjoyed it until I got around 250 pages in. I liked the idea of exploring what reality really is, and the concept of weaving a reality is certainly an interesting one. Then came the big reveal about Earth and I started losing interest. And throwing in a love triangle and an illicit lesbian affair didn’t help, perhaps because none of it seemed to organically grow from the plot or to have a lot of chemistry.

There were a few things I found frustrating about this book. Probably my biggest problem with the plot was when it was revealed that Arras was built “over” Earth, because I immediately started thinking that Adelice could have just fled to Earth, and this thought recurred to me each time Adelice was saying things like “but there’s no place to run.” I was mentally yelling at her for pretty much the rest of the book to just go to Earth and get it over with. To be honest, Earth seems like a fairly good place to run; everyone thinks it’s abandoned, the only contact it has with Arras is through the mining operations and even this seems indirect, and it’s an entire planet, so there would be plenty of places for her to hide. And if it’s still populated, this could even work to her advantage, as she could blend in with the current population. Why did it take her over a hundred pages to figure out she could flee to Earth?

Don’t know if I’ll be continuing with the series or not (the library has the other two books of the trilogy), although I would be interested to see the author’s idea of what Earth is actually like at this point in time. And maybe get some more explanations as to how Arras’s reality is woven. ( )

it's okay. Had a very predictable plot but was descriptive enough to keep my interest. the world and story reminded me a lot of The Hunger Games which isn't bad but isn't necessarily good either ( )
