Selling stories is a deadly business.

Tanwen doesn’t just tell stories—she weaves them into crystallized sculptures that sell for more than a few bits. But the only way to escape the control of her cruel mentor and claw her way from poverty is to set her sights on something grander: becoming Royal Storyteller to the king.

During her final story peddling tour, a tale of treason spills from her hands, threatening the king himself. Tanwen goes from peddler to prey as the king’s guard hunts her down . . . and they’re not known for their mercy. As Tanwen flees for her life, she unearths long-buried secrets and discovers she’s not the only outlaw in the empire. There’s a rebel group of weavers . . . and they’re after her too.

Author Bio

Lindsay A. Franklin is a Carol Award-winning author, freelance editor, and homeschooling mom of three. She would wear pajama pants all the time if it were socially acceptable.

Editorial Reviews

"Franklin does an exceptional job of worldbuilding in this beautifully written debut fantasy novel. The witty and crisp dialog drives the plot forward, and the author's ability to create well-defined characters will immediately hook readers. VERDICT: With its engaging protagonist and twisty, suspenseful story line, this first volume in Franklin's 'Weaver' trilogy will attract fantasy fans seeking a light and inspirational read. New readers willing to try the genre will also be rewarded." — Library Journal, starred review, debut of the month
-- Library Journal

"This page-turner is a compelling introduction to a new series that promises an adventure that will appeal to teen readers as well as adults. Tanwen is a creative and extraordinary character who is easy to like. Franklin's fantasy world is as sparkling as Tanwen's story sculptures, with descriptions that make it easy to imagine the landscape that carries this story of faith, reconciliation, and hope." — RT Book Reviews 
-- RT Book Reviews

"Franklin describes this medieval-like world in lovely, flowing prose, especially the magical storytelling ribbons that twist in and out of various shapes. Ambitious Tanwen speaks with dry humor, and sweet Braith struggles between knowing what is morally right and lacking the means to act on her ideals. The fun, rollicking adventure and cast of bantering characters will hold widespread appeal for fantasy fans." — Booklist
