Genre: Epic Fantasy


For 30 years, Elaina has sat in her tower, fingers caught in an eternal dance, cursed to weave the tapestry of life on her loom. Bound by an enchanted mirror whose magic shows her the distant lives of the people of Camelot, she must forever watch a land which remains ever beyond her reach. Elaina despairs that she will ever experience more than just the shadows of life, until one day, a face appears in the mirror that will change her life, and possibly her fate, forever.

Guinevere is losing her mind. When a severe injury to her head nearly kills her and awakens alternate personalities suppressed from her past, Guinevere learns that one of them is plotting with a knight of the round table to murder King Arthur and take control of Camelot. In the midst of war, Guinevere fights to save both her own life and the man she loves, each day coming closer to succumbing to the violent personalities within her.

Inspired by Arthurian legend and Lord Alfred Tennyson’s ballad, "The Lady of Shalott", Woven spins a tale of two women who must risk everything to save those they love most into an epic of enchantment, love, and madness.





Bree Moore has been writing fantasy since the fourth grade. She lives in Ogden, is wife to an amazing husband, and the mother of four children. She writes fantasy novels between doling out cheerios and folding laundry. In real-life, Bree works as a birth doula, attending women in pregnancy and labor, which is huge inspiration for her writing. Bree loves shopping for groceries like other women like shopping for shoes (no, seriously), movies that make her cry, and Celtic music. She likes both her chocolate and her novels dark.

"Woven" is Bree's first published novel, the start of what she intends to be an epic writing career.

Narrator Bio

Born in the eighties with her formative years in the nineties, Rebecca’s taste in music and fashion never really had a chance. Fortunately, you can’t tell these things from her writing or voice-over work. HEr first novel, Trespasser, is as dark as her neon is bright, and you’d never guess from hearing her that she’s narrating science fiction in nothing but unicorn pants. Currently residing in London, Rebecca is passionate about travel, and has a good - albeit sometimes dubious - ear for accents. She graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a degree in something or other, has a background in musical theatre, a past career in burlesque, and is a classically trained opera singer. Oh, and she likes greyhounds. And wine.

Notes from Bree Moore:
  • “The Lady of Shalott” by Loreena Mckennit - This song inspired “Woven”. My mom challenged me to write a scene based on the song, and a book was born! The song is based on a poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson by the same name.
  • “In my Arms” by Plumb - This song always makes me think of my main character and how she must have felt holding her baby for the first time. It’s so sweet and sad.
  • “Never saw Blue” sung by Hayley Westenra - I probably listened to this song a thousand times while writing Woven. Its message of hope fit the theme of Woven perfectly. It even inspired the blue jay that “talks” to Elaina and keeps her company in the tower.

I honestly have never cared much for books about King Author but decided to give this book a shot. I was actually quite surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. The book is actually a dual story book that in the end meets up. First of all the book is written from Guinevere's perspective. So far I have never read or even heard of a book from her perspective.

Elaina has been held captive in the Tower for 30 years. Her life has been to weave a tapestry of life. The  tapestry is in control of her, it makes her weave for days and nights on end at times without letting her stop to eat or drink even. When she awoke in the Tower on that first day she was told she could not look out the window or at any man that may come along or she would die. All she has to see life moving on outside of her room is a Enchanted Mirror. One day the face of a man shows u in the mirror that will change her life forever.

Guinevere has an accident and gets a bad head injury after she awakes she finds she has multiple personalities. One of the personalities is a young abused girl the other is a grown woman with an agenda. She is making plans Sir Lancelot to kill King Arthur. Guinevere must try to save him.

This is where the 2 stories start to meld together.


I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Bree Moore. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
