Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken – book cover, description, publication history. Conventional teen tropes translate surprisingly well to fantasy romance in an uneven debut.

He’s stunned when he finds out the wizard wants his daughter. I truly aexandra that Brightly Woven’s world is revisited with further novels in the near future! Soven the thing with Henry was weird, he only appears for about half a second in the beginning of the book, so how are you supposed to understand that she has feelings for him?

North is quite an offbeat and profligate hero and I wasn’t sure at first if he would win me over. Every single detail counts, because you’re taking your reader into a galaxy far, far away. On the last pages I felt like I was saying goodbye to wovfn old friend of mine, I wanted to stop reading only not to get to the end of it.

BRIGHTLY WOVEN by Alexandra Bracken | Kirkus Reviews

Apr 07, Arlene rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Rachel, Fate, are we alexandga those trading cards this summer? First, the main character.


First of all, North is not cured. The world that Brightly Woven was set in, was absolutely enchanting. Have a nice day! But we never get a clear idea of the religious creed they spawned. At least, since the story is told from Sydelle’s point of view, you have some understanding of who she is, and what drives her. The people were so happy that he made it rain that they offered him any reward he wanted. I adore North and I am glad that they are going to get a happy ending.

I’d love a continuation of this story, even though it did wrap up nicely. The story was so creative, and thought out perfectly. Bracken’s vivid prose and storytelling offer a fresh, fun take on magic and wizardry, with North as a tantalizing, brooding hero and Syd, as a feisty, strong woman of many talents, her most extraordinary yet undiscovered. I can’t remember the last time I was so excited over a book – I actually pre-ordered it, something I’ve never done before.

And one thing that I really liked, was that there was no profanity or sexual stuff or vulgarity in it-a real rare find in a book nowadays.

Finished this book in one day around 3: I particularly enjoyed reading his intoxicated alexandrs. I desparately am awaiting a sequel, as I am dying for more of North and Sydelle’s story!



Some fantasy can be overbearing, but Brightly Woven was a perfect mix of everything a good book needs. Wild and kicking on the outside, but a heart soft as satin on the inside. Dec 10, Erica daydreamer rated it it was amazing Shelves: I may not actually give this brihtly to the library group.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Sydelle and North’s story unfolded rather rocky-like. We need more of those in the world. Thought it was a reoccurring dream. I loved every single minute of it. Looking for beautiful books?

It was a hilarious scene since everyone, including the belligerent wizard, did not expect him to do that. View all 21 comments. I found myself resisting to leave when I came across the final paragraphs. I was completely enraptured and invested in the story and felt a sense of longing and sadness when wkven was over.
