Review: Warped by Maurissa Guibord

                                                                                                                       By: Maurissa Guibord
Tessa doesn't believe in magic. Or Fate. But there's something weird about the dusty unicorn tapestry she discovers in a box of old books. She finds the creature woven within it compelling and frightening. After the tapestry comes into her possession, Tessa experiences dreams of the past and scenes from a brutal hunt that she herself participated in. When she accidentally pulls a thread from the tapestry, Tessa releases a terrible centuries old secret. She also meets William de Chaucy, an irresistible 16th-century nobleman. His fate is as inextricably tied to the tapestry as Tessa's own. Together, they must correct the wrongs of the past. But then the Fates step in, making a tangled mess of Tessa's life. Now everyone she loves will be destroyed unless Tessa does their bidding and defeats a cruel and crafty ancient enemy.

I was extremely skeptical about this book. I wasn't sure about the whole unicorn thing. It just seemed a little too childish for me. I gave in and finally read it.This was a really interesting book. It was unique and different. The whole "weaving of life" concept was brilliant! I loved the characters and the love story. I do feel the author could have done a little more with the action parts. The author could have messed more up in Tessa's life, although things were bad enough. The ending was by far my favorite part! It was unexpected. I am a little confused if there is a part two to this book. The epilogue to me makes it seem so.All in all a great read!

  1. I just finished Warped and I loved it! I agree with the ending. I almost banged my head on the wall because it was so cliche and then he... he... haha! It was so cute.
