Overview

Woven by Michael Jensen, David Powers King

Two unlikely allies must journey across a kingdom in the hopes of thwarting death itself.All his life, Nels has wanted to be a knight of the kingdom of Avërand. Tall and strong, and with a knack for helping those in need, the people of his sleepy little village have even taken to calling him the Knight of Cobblestown.But that was before Nels died, murdered outside his home by a mysterious figure.Now the young hero has awoken as a ghost, invisible to all around him save one person — his only hope for understanding what happened to him — the kingdom's heir, Princess Tyra. At first the spoiled royal wants nothing to do with Nels, but as the mystery of his death unravels, the two find themselves linked by a secret, and an enemy who could be hiding behind any face.Nels and Tyra have no choice but to abscond from the castle, charting a hidden world of tangled magic and forlorn phantoms. They must seek out an ancient needle with the power to mend what has been torn, and they have to move fast. Because soon Nels will disappear forever.

A unique story that has the nostalgic feeling of a beloved fairytale. I was immediately sunk into this book from page one. There is comedy, romance, adventure, action, magic, ghosts, what's not to love? If that doesn't sound like a great book to you, you are dead wrong. I read it so fast that it felt short but it's a decent size novel. I just fell so in love with the plot and the characters, I just wasn't ready for it to be over. It's amazing. There was never a dull moment, and I don't mean it was wall-to-wall action, I mean that in 344 pages I never got bored. I guess what I'm saying is that I love this book and I would highly recommend it to all of you.

Excellent book for the young and old. This book has everything: great characters; a fantastic setting with castles and kingdoms; magic and mystery; and a well threaded plot that keeps you turning the pages.

The basic idea is creative but the writing just isn't good. There is little to no detail to make the story enjoyable. I felt like I was reading a story by a kid in middle school.

I read it as a Review Copy and I really liked it. I thought the kind of magic used in this story was refreshing and original. One gets hooked in the story very quickly. Nels, the hero, is a likable character, although it's not always like that. And I mean it in a good sense. Characters who are likable all the time might get me bored. Princess Tyra is one character you start disliking but eventually she grows on you. Another thing that I loved about the story was its pace. It does have action, intrigue and romance in a good balance. I often find stories predictable, but this is definitively NOT the case. I highly recommend it, a very enjoyable read that leaves you wanting for more.

Getting Woven in my hands a week early was an unexpected and FANTASTIC surprise!!!  Thank you Barnes & Noble!  I thought I would have to wait until the 27th.  Woven is a beautiful and engaging story.  The use of sewing magic was very well spun!  Scholastic did a beautiful job putting it together.  And to the authors, David Powers King and Michael Jensen, I hope this book is a launching point for more Woven books—there are so many stories within Woven that are bursting at the seams to be told and explained—truly a well-crafted and written story!  Congratulations to you both on such an entertaining and thrilling book—thank you for the beautiful moments that…sent a chill through me, for the humor that made me laugh, for the wisdom expressed and for writing a story that made me sad to turn to the final page!  I wish Woven the best of success!!!
