  • Ethereal and Darkly Glittering

    Woven in Moonlight is a beautifully whimsical and folksy tale of magic and bravery. The magic in this story is so beautiful and unique. The way the characters are connected to the night sky, and can read the stars and weave moonlight into thread, it's all so ethereal and darkly glittering. This book is full of fantastically strong female characters, and I love the way that real culture is blended with the fantasy world of Inkasisa. There is a distinctly classic fantasy feel to it on some ways, but at the same time the whole world and setting feel unique. There are some similar elements to the Folk of the Air series by Holly Black, and I think if you like those characters you will greatly enjoy the characters in Woven In Moonlight. Recommended for fans of folk tales, fantasy and exciting adventures with strong characters.

  • A beautiful, lush fantasy based on Bolivian cultur

    Woven in Moonlight is a beautiful and lush fantasy, based on the culture and history of Bolivia. It is set in the fictional country of Inkasisa. Ximena is a stand in for the Condesa, the last remaining royal of the Illustrian people. Her people were driven from La Ciudad when Atoc, of the Llacsan people, usurped the throne using an ancient relic. The Illustrians live in isolation and poverty while the Llacsans rule Inkasisa. When Atoc demands that Catalina, the true Condesa, marry him, Ximena travels to La Ciudad in her place. Her plan is to act as a spy and retrieve Atoc's ancient deadly relic. Atoc is a cruel and dictatorial ruler, but Ximena comes to realize that not all Llacsan people are bad. She questions everything she has been told about who the true oppressors are, as the Illustrian people did not treat the Llacsans well when they were in power. She meets a kind princess, a vigilante, a healer, a guard and a maid, among others, and changes her views. The story is fast paced and the writing is beautiful. I really loved this book - great world building, fascinating magic (woven animals created from moonlight!), and wonderful descriptions of Bolivian food and clothing.

  • A Rich, Magical Fantasy

    Woven in Moonlight is a rich, magical fantasy full of secrets. Ximena is a decoy for the Condesa, sent to marry the king who conquered their people. She is determined to steal the magical artifact which let the king take over and use it to reestablish the real Condesa as queen. I loved all the characters, but I especially loved Ximena and Rumi. Ximena has a great character arc and really grows throughout the story. At first, I was really annoyed with her and the rash decisions she kept making, but she learned from her mistakes and as the story went on I fell in love with her character. There were also detailed descriptions of food that made me hungry and wish I was there so I could taste it. Ximena's magical talent is super cool and I wish the magical talents were explored a little more in this story. Overall, this is a great story that is super enjoyable. Thanks to bookishfirst for providing me with a copy to review!
