The Tapestry of Fate is absolute. If a Thread determines that one will lead a life of fortune, then it will happen. If a Thread determines that one will lead a life in vain, it is inescapable. All things, save for the smallest of margins, are set in stone... unless you're a Ghostwalker.
In this world, where destiny is everything, a Ghostwalker has the ability to forge their own legacy. Through the mere act of living, they change the weave of the Tapestry, and each life they meet is affected in a similar way.
Ghostwalkers have been Kings and madmen, prophets, and paupers, and in this particular instance, a six year old girl...
"Ghostwalker" will take a young half-elf away from everything she knows and throw her into the High City of Lydia, where she will have to rely on wit and unconventional allies to survive long enough to make a difference in the world, even if it comes down to throwing it all away.
*I received a copy of this book for an honest review*
Magic, friendship, not so friendly-ships, love, betrayal. It's got it all. And I was engaged and invested enough that the thread of sadness/melancholy throughout was tangible, and I was kind of in a down mood until I finished haha.
I won't be able to make my top list this year like I usually do, but you can bet that this is one of my favorite reads of 2016! This is one that I fully intend to re-read, and I don't often do that. As soon as I have a chance, I'll be grabbing the second in this series and digging in.
