Publisher's Summary

The city of Wyvern’s Rest has fallen....

The feud between the capital cities of Cambridge and Sephyra has reached a boiling point, leaving the “Jewel of the Highlands” a ghost of its former glory. Those with the means to live and the will to dream have already fled the city. Those lacking remain, condemned to bury their sorrow while the walls crumble around them. Lawlessness and poverty have overtaken the streets, and as the days grow longer, the shadows of the abandoned Outer Quarter loom ever darker.  

Ava spends her days tethered to her prison, the belly of an old, stone inn, overlooking the docks and the familiar, sea-side market. She leans on her friends for innocent laughter and talk of unimportant things. Every day, the tavern fills with the hopes and dreams of those fleeing for brighter horizons; and every day, Ava watches them leave with the simplest wish…to join them.

Little does she know, her fate is woven to the enormous, crimson carriage that creaks through the shadows of another forgotten morning. The odd-shaped man who emerges from the carriage carries two simple things: an old, leather satchel and a sinister secret. One will free Ava from her prison. One will forever seal her tomb.

Both will alter the course of Wyvern’s Rest forever.

Good start to the series!

This is a promising start to the series! Great character and world building create a unique personal, political, and adventurous landscape. Ava is a slave, imprisoned in an old Inn to a vindictive master. Enter the man in the carriage. In his satchel, lies the keys to her fate. This story has it all. love, hate, betrayal, and intrigue in a small world about to get a whole lot bigger. I won't spoil a good story but this a must listen. S.L. Matthews crafts a great story and Amie Lyn Hornick brings it to life. I can't wait till the next installment!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary honest review.

Excellent Book! I’m ready to read Book 2..

I read The Weave of Fate when it first came out and decided to listen to the audio version before Book 2 came out. I’m glad I did. I’ve listened to dozens of books and I believe Amie Lyn Hornick is the best narrator I’ve heard. Her voice changes to match every character. I’ve heard some narrators make every character sound the same. Not Amie- she has an excellent voice and was very easy to listen to through the entire book. I’m glad she will continue the narration for all books in this exciting series.

Yes please!

The Weave of Fate was a very compelling story, and instantly had me hooked. I loved the setting, and the beautiful way the author described our fantasy land, full of politics, and a vibrant cast of characters. I loved the strong females in the story, and how they didn’t step back when things got tough, but rose to the challenge, and boy were the challenges epic! I really enjoyed this story and would definitely recommend. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Promising New Series, Once it Fully Gets Going

This story has all the makings of a truly epic series. We have a cast of major characters who have depth and their own motivations, an interesting world, and hints of a big/dangerous conflict. On the level of a single book, it seemed to fall slightly short of the 5-star rating for me. This story leans heavily on the device where the reader hops back and forth between several major characters (i.e. Pulp Fiction, Song of Ice and Fire, etc.). I have seen this device work very well in much longer books, but with something at this length, it seemed a bit more fragmented.

Narration was very well done and certainly adds to the experience.

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Outstanding audiobook!

This book is so well-written, and the narrator's voice is fantastic. I can't wait to read Book 2!
