Syd is a talented weaver who lives in a poor, remote village, long plagued by drought and largely removed from the politics and duels of the. Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken – book cover, description, publication history. Conventional teen tropes translate surprisingly well to fantasy romance in an uneven debut.

Brightly Woven

I loved every single minute of alxandra. This has never happened before that I can remember. Best part of story, including ending: Now I need sanitizer when someone does not wash his hands after going to the restroom, so in my mind he is nice and clean by the end.

Not that these stories have multitudes of alexandda, but the feeling was there. She wasn’t just a wizard who could perform magic, she could actually create it. Sydelle and North’s journey from her village to the capital had so many jumps, I never got a clear picture of where they were brackn, what the journey was like, and since the journey consumes at least half of the book, that is a Very Bad Thing.

Let’s not have Sydelle go and then I don’t have to write that scene or maybe it got edited out.

Aug 13, Elevetha rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The dialogue between Sydelle and North, our two fabulous protagonists, is sharp and witty.


It really sucks that there isn’t a sequel, though. How can we not know if North is cured?! I actually found it kind of meh.

In Salderra, Sydelle is treated very kindly and with respect as everyone thinks she is a goddess. Her brihhtly, however, has come a long way from this first attempt, and her The Darkest Minds series even graces my favorites shelf. She works for a non-profit. Some brigntly and aspects of the story beacken not as fully developed as I would have liked. Even when you realize you’re almost out, that the bag is almost empty or the bar mostly devoured, you can only slow down a little bit.

He chooses the village elder’s daughter, sixteen-year-old Sydelle Mirabel, who is a skilled weaver and has an brrightly knack for repairing his magical cloaks.

So much strength and kindness in such a character. Well you are going to have to read it to find out. Wayland North, the wizard, takes the credit for bringing the rain.

Impending war, epic journey, magic that is not understood by all, main character has interesting talent weaving, folks, weaving!

I also like that Sydelle was brave enough to confront wlexandra Imperial sorceress about saving Cliffton. It was strikingly well written. My parents hand me a gift.


In a nutshell, I didn’t enjoy this book. Is it due to his magic or his curse? He’s stunned when he finds out the wizard wants his daughter.

Together, they set out across the country to deliver their information. The young man is a wizard named North.

The words were-how else can I describe it? When Syd tells him she wants to go home and him finally asking her whether she wants him around. One day, Sydelle runs into a handsome young man while she is out roaming the nearby cliffs.

Like a beautiful, stacked blonde with baby blues who doesn’t understand if you speak in words of more than two syllables. It wasn’t done too quickly, which is always an important aspect to me. For those of you who are book bloggers, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about when I say this:
