In the world of Arras some girls are born with the power to weave time with matter. The Guild, the government that controls everything, tests all girls to see if they are gifted. If you show talent you are brought to one of the Guilds headquarters and trained to see if you can handle being a Spinster, the people who weave the matter. Adelice is gifted and becomes a Spinster, but as she discovers the Guild and Arras’ darkest secrets she fights for love, and for her life.

I loved this book. I cannot wait for the sequel (hopefully there is one). This book was so original, it blew my mind. The orientations (good, evil) of the characters confused me a little: one page they’d be an ally, the next they were betraying her, and then they help her again. That was the only thing that confused me. I loved how at the end of the book there were so many “oooh, I get it” moments where everything just clicked. I highly recommend this book to anyone who will listen.
