Redeeming the past is a fatal quest.
In the wake of a deadly coup, the capital city of Urian has descended into chaos. Heartbreak and bloodshed await Tanwen and her friends as they discover the unlikeliest leader now rules Tir.
If they want to save the realm, Tannie and the Corsyth weavers must rescue Queen Braith and unmask the Master, ending the strife once and for all. But the success of their hunt depends upon an ally no one trusts.
The Master has a new target in sight-fragile, trauma-scarred Digwyn, whose unique weaving ability could turn the tide of any war. When the desire for vengeance proves too powerful for Digwyn to resist, Tanwen must face a terrifying truth: the fate of Tir rests in the hands of a volatile, shattered girl.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
Also in this series: The Story Peddler, The Story Raider
Is it possible for a person to truly change? Can vengeance right a wrong?
Author Lindsay A. Franklin investigates the answers to these questions in this fascinating conclusion to The Weaver Trilogy.
I have really enjoyed following Tannie’s adventures through this series. As the scope of her adventure expands, so do the number of characters whose lives are intertwined in Tannie’s quest to save the realm of Tir.
I loved getting to know Diggy better. Broken during her time of captivity through the betrayal of a friend and the cruelties enacted on her, she sought revenge. Seeing her weakness and the unusual power she wielded, the Master sought to win her loyalty…
While there is plenty of action, adventure, intrigue, suspense, and fighting, The Story Hunter is not overly gory. Despite my having figured out the identity of the “Master” who is behind the evil in the kingdom at the end of The Story Raider, there were plenty of surprises to keep me on my toes. And despite the fast-paced action in the various fights and battles, I was able to keep track of what was happening – for the most part.
Being a fantasy world, this is not a Christian trilogy and yet the concepts of a Creator, redemption, and grace are woven throughout this struggle between good and evil.
Even with the abundance of characters introduced in these three books, it was not difficult to keep track of them and the role they played. Each is quite memorable. The author didn’t waste any time catching her readers up on what had happened in the past, in fact, very little time is spent even giving physical details about any of the characters here as they were all introduced in the previous stories (which I appreciate). You will want to be sure to read them in order and probably want to refresh your memory by re-reading the first two books if you have not read them recently.
If you enjoy wholesome fantasy with plenty of action, I highly recommend The Weaver Trilogy.
