Goodreads Summary:
Enter a tangled world of secrets and intrigue where a girl is in charge of other’s destinies, but not her own.
Sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys has always been special. When her parents discover her gift—the ability to weave the very fabric of reality—they train her to hide it. For good reason, they don’t want her to become a Spinster — one of the elite, beautiful, and deadly women who determine what people eat, where they live, how many children they have, and even when they die.
Thrust into the opulent Western Coventry, Adelice will be tried, tested and tempted as she navigates the deadly politics at play behind its walls.  Now caught in a web of lies and forbidden romance, she must unravel the sinister truth behind her own unspeakable power.  Her world is hanging by a thread, and Adelice, alone, can decide to save it — or destroy it.

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.
