Crewel is a cruel cruel world. The government harvests girls from the population if they show any aptitude for weaving time, and Adelice certainly has a talent for pulling the threads that make up her reality. Adelice grew up trying to hide her talent. Her parents taught her that if she ever revealed her talent she might be taken away never to be seen or heard from again. Adelice makes one tiny mistake and it changes everything. Most of the girls chosen are happy to be selected- they will live in luxury, they will be honored, admired and perhaps feared. Adelice is not like most girls.
This book is insane. It is a dystopian fantasy with sci-fi elements. It is completely impossible to categorize. Maybe categories are overrated, this book has an incredibly creative world and I love that it draws from so many different genres. I’m intrigued by the premise, and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
