Review: Crewel (Crewel World #1) by Gennifer Albin

Enter a tangled world of secrets and intrigue where a girl is in charge of other’s destinies, but not her own.
 Sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys has always been special. When her parents discover her gift—the ability to weave the very fabric of reality—they train her to hide it. For good reason, they don’t want her to become a Spinster — one of the elite, beautiful, and deadly women who determine what people eat, where they live, how many children they have, and even when they die.
 Thrust into the opulent Western Coventry, Adelice will be tried, tested and tempted as she navigates the deadly politics at play behind its walls. Now caught in a web of lies and forbidden romance, she must unravel the sinister truth behind her own unspeakable power. Her world is hanging by a thread, and Adelice, alone, can decide to save it — or destroy it,
 This book has proven to be a wildly imaginitive, masterful piece of work. This story is truely a one of a kind original. I've never read a storyline like this one before. It is totally unique in every way. One of my new favorites! This is an incredably creative world that this author has woven into existance. I completely fell into this futuristic and complex world. It all comes together piece by piece. You find out the details of this azstonishing, bigger than life place. The storyline is built up layer by layer and then revealed in the same surprising manner. I love everything about this wonderful story.
