As far as futuristic dystopias go, I thought I had seen them all. Reading Crewel changed my mind about that. Adelice lives in Arras, a world ruled by the Spinsters, or so it seems. Spinsters shape the world, deciding when, where and how the people of Arras function. Every small bit of people's lives in Arras is controlled by the Spinsters. Adelice has the power to weave the world, but she doesn't want it. Ever since she was small, her parents trained her to fail, to hide her powers. However they fail, and she passes the test. Now her whole life is changed. Adelice's story is crazy, thrilling and beyond brilliant. I love reading books, I wouldn't be writing this review if I didn't, and Crewel is a book I loved reading especially. It's the sort of book where when you finish, you almost can't believe it's over. And once you accept that, you go looking for more. I know that Altered (the sequel) is at the top of my reading list.
