I haven't read many books worth reviewing, lately. I was at the library, trying to find something worth while, and I pulled out 'Brightly Woven' from the new books shelf. I read the summary, opened it, appraised it, and ultimately checked it out. It seemed to fit my favorite genre, fantasy/adventure, with dabbles of magic. A summary: Sydelle lives in a desert village with a drought. They haven't had rain in years! When rain finally comes, a wizard (Wayland North) shows up with a bunch of soldiers following him. He said he's come to search for more evidence about the king's murder. Murder? Sydelle thought he had died from an illness. But her father, the village elder, doesn't mind about that much. The stranger brought a long awaited rain! He says he will give North anything he asks for. And he chose Sydelle.
