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.

Not the best, nor the worst. The story precept can be a little hard to follow but the characters are clear. It ends in a spot that leaves you wanting for the next In the series.
Obviously love to read!
I loved the unique world that was created, something different. I'm excited to get started on the next two books.
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
Yes, the characters are great, the story is very interesting.
The "jail" break!
Believable voices. I'm pretty tough on voice actors, and I think she did great!
If the Matrix and The Hunger Games had a love child, it would be Crewel!
Cannot wait until the second book comes out!
I'm married with 3 children and 2 grandchildren. Love to read books, and love to listen to audio books. Genre's UF/Sci-Fi/ dystopian/ fiction and mystery/thrillers
Top 5, very close to the top :)
The story was very different, I really can't compare to any other book I've read or listened to.
This was my first time listening to her, but I'll definitely see what else she's narrated. She did a great job.
