For 30 years, Elaina has sat in her tower, fingers caught in an eternal dance, cursed to weave the tapestry of life on her loom. Bound by an enchanted mirror whose magic shows her the distant lives of the people of Camelot, she must forever watch a land which remains ever beyond her reach. Elaina despairs that she will ever experience more than just the shadows of life, until one day, a face appears in the mirror that will change her life, and possibly her fate, forever. Guinevere is losing her mind. When a severe injury to her head nearly kills her and awakens alternate personalities suppressed from her past, Guinevere learns that one of them is plotting with a knight of the round table to murder King Arthur and take control of Camelot. In the midst of war, Guinevere fights to save both her own life and the man she loves, each day coming closer to succumbing to the violent personalities within her. Inspired by Arthurian legend and Lord Alfred Tennyson’s ballad, "The Lady of Shalott", Woven spins a tale of two women who must risk everything to save those they love most into an epic of enchantment, love, and madness.









Bree Moore has been writing fantasy since the fourth grade. She lives in Ogden, is wife to an amazing husband, and the mother of four children. She writes fantasy novels between doling out cheerios and folding laundry. In real-life, Bree works as a birth doula, attending women in pregnancy and labor, which is huge inspiration for her writing. Bree loves shopping for groceries like other women like shopping for shoes (no, seriously), movies that make her cry, and Celtic music. She likes both her chocolate and her novels dark. "Woven" is Bree's first published novel, the start of what she intends to be an epic writing career.

Narrator Bio

Born in the eighties with her formative years in the nineties, Rebecca’s taste in music and fashion never really had a chance. Fortunately, you can’t tell these things from her writing or voice-over work. HEr first novel, Trespasser, is as dark as her neon is bright, and you’d never guess from hearing her that she’s narrating science fiction in nothing but unicorn pants. Currently residing in London, Rebecca is passionate about travel, and has a good - albeit sometimes dubious - ear for accents. She graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a degree in something or other, has a background in musical theatre, a past career in burlesque, and is a classically trained opera singer. Oh, and she likes greyhounds. And wine.

Notes from Bree Moore:
  • “The Lady of Shalott” by Loreena Mckennit - This song inspired “Woven”. My mom challenged me to write a scene based on the song, and a book was born! The song is based on a poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson by the same name.
  • “In my Arms” by Plumb - This song always makes me think of my main character and how she must have felt holding her baby for the first time. It’s so sweet and sad.
  • “Never saw Blue” sung by Hayley Westenra - I probably listened to this song a thousand times while writing Woven. Its message of hope fit the theme of Woven perfectly. It even inspired the blue jay that “talks” to Elaina and keeps her company in the tower.



 

I love retellings and this one immediately captivated me by the worldbuilding and the beautifully done narration which immediately transports the listener into days of old steeped in myths and folklore. The characters are intriguing and the scenes feel so real. I am so happy I took a chance on this audioboook and recommend it to lovers of medieval fantasy.

4/5

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Bree Moore. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
