Crewel: Crewel World, Book 1 | [Gennifer Albin]

Crewel: Crewel World, Book 1

For generations, girls known as Spinsters have been called by Arras' Manipulation Services to work the looms and control what people eat, where they live, how many children they have, and even when they die. Gifted with the unusual ability to weave time with matter, 16-year-old Adelice Lewys is exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. But Adelice isn’t interested.

Publisher's Summary

For generations, girls known as Spinsters have been called by Arras' Manipulation Services to work the looms and control what people eat, where they live, how many children they have, and even when they die. Gifted with the unusual ability to weave time with matter, 16-year-old Adelice Lewys is exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life.

But Adelice isn’t interested. Because once you become a Spinster, there’s no turning back. Now caught in a web of lies and intrigue, Adelice must decide who to trust: her kind mentor, Enora; the handsome and mysterious valet Jost; or the charismatic Guild ambassador Cormac Patton. They each have secrets, but Adelice is about to unravel the deadliest one of all, a sinister truth that could destroy reality as she knows it.

    "How am I supposed to wait a year for the 2nd book?"
    Would you listen to Crewel again? Why?

    Yes, the characters are great, the story is very interesting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Crewel?

    The "jail" break!


    What about Amanda Dolan’s performance did you like?

    Believable voices. I'm pretty tough on voice actors, and I think she did great!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If the Matrix and The Hunger Games had a love child, it would be Crewel!


    Any additional comments?

    Cannot wait until the second book comes out!

    "I wish I could give this 6 STARS"
    Where does Crewel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5, very close to the top :)


    What other book might you compare Crewel to and why?

    The story was very different, I really can't compare to any other book I've read or listened to.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Dolan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time listening to her, but I'll definitely see what else she's narrated. She did a great job.
