In a world where Others play with mortal lives, in a hidden province that survives on the backs of abducted slaves, Isabella, one of those stolen folk, sends a message woven into rare cloth made of paper and silk, in the vain hope that her cousin will find it, decipher it and rescue her.
For cousin Nicholas, with whose life the Fates have been playing, only time will tell if he shall find her and whether what makes a curse does indeed break a curse.
The Chronicles of Eirie series:
The Stumpwork Robe
The Last Stitch
A Thousand Glass Flowers
The Shifu Cloth
If you are already a fan of Prue's series, then you can add this to your list. It blends fairy tale and fantasy in a delightful way with her set of special otherworldly characters.
As per in her previous stories, the use, description and details of crafting is engaging. In this case, the making of shifu cloth. Loved learning about this art and enjoyed how it is incoporated in this magical story.
