Brightly Woven Review

Summary:Sydelle Mirabil is living proof that, with a single drop of rain, a life can be changed forever. Tucked away in the farthest reaches of the kingdom, her dusty village has suffered under the weight of a strangely persistent drought. That is, of course, until a wizard wanders into town and brings the rain with him. In return for this gift, Wayland North is offered any reward he desires—and no one is more surprised than Sydelle when, without any explanation, he chooses her. Taken from her home, Sydelle hardly needs encouragement to find reasons to dislike North. He drinks too much and bathes too little, and if that isn’t enough to drive her to madness, North rarely even uses the magic he takes such pride in possessing. Yet, it’s not long before she realizes there’s something strange about the wizard, who is as fiercely protective of her as he is secretive about a curse that turns his limbs a sinister shade of black and leaves him breathless with agony. Unfortunately, there is never a chance for her to seek answers. Along with the strangely powerful quakes and storms that trace their path across the kingdom, other wizards begin to take an inexplicable interest in her as well, resulting in a series of deadly duels. Against a backdrop of war and uncertainty, Sydelle is faced with the growing awareness that these events aren’t as random as she had believed—that no curse, not even that of Wayland North, is quite as terrible as the one she herself may carry

My feelings:Brightly Woven was a enthralling,magical,adventure filled read that will tempt you to turn the pages.Sydelle is sensible red-head with a feisty side and opinions of her own and North is a mysterious bad boy with a dark past.The romance between Sydelle and North is indescribable that alone is why I loved this book because it wasn't your typical YA romance it was (man I can't really think of a word that can describe it right now.) but I guess you can say it was breathtaking.The character where molded so perfectly that I could almost picture them in my mind fully colored and moving with compelling personality's.I loved that the story was not set in a specific time this way I could weave my own world with out feeling weird but even thought there was not a specific time Brightly Woven was set in it didn't take away from how the imagery flowed off the pages and sucked me in to the dangerous war-filled world of Sydelle and North. I also really loved how North was not your flawless male character that is usually in YA he had a past and had flaws just like anybody else but at the same time he was a for Sydelle she was a strong female main character that was brave and fearless when it comes to what she thinks is needed to be done.The ending was sweet and well-rounded it makes me qiute anxious to see what next adventure Sydelle and North will be on.

Overall: Brightly Woven is one my favorite fantasy and romance book so far and I would recommend you to buy it NOW!
