    One thought on “A Tapestry of Spells

    1. Ashley Daviau on said:

      I was slightly disappointed when I started this and realized it wasn't a continuation of the third book and that there was not even a glimpse of Miach or Morgan. But I quickly began to enjoy this story and these characters just as much as the first three books and their characters. I was initially confused and thought this was about the same brother featured in the first books but after going back and realizing this is a different brother, I was so intrigued! It really adds a whole new spoke on [...]

    2. Suzie on said:

      I was a little confused when I first started reading, thinking this was the brother I read about in Princess of the Sword (Runach), so I had to go back to re-read and discover that this story is about another brother (Ruith). I liked the revelations of Ruith's survival of the well and also the storyline of his "quest". I was disappointed in his interactions with Sarah, like, is it common for all guys to like to brush and braid a girl's hair? Miach did this for Morgan in the previous Nine Kingdom [...]

    3. Jill Furedy on said:

      I knew this wasn't a Morgan and Miach story, but hoped they would make an appearance. No luck there, but this started off promisingly. The witchwoman's daughter with no magic of her own, a brother with delusions of grandeur, and the horse turned dog. I thought she would have learned about potions, etc, even if she had no magic, which is fine since there was plenty of magic in the other books, but other than some teas, that doesn't seem to be the case. I knew Ruith wasn't going to be the scary ol [...]

    4. Wendy Palmer on said:

      There's a strange sort of illogic underlying this book; I spent a lot of the early parts of it wondering why characters were saying or doing certain things because it made such little sense. The biggest example is Ruith's refusal to use magic to heal Sarah's arm for a long time: he uses it to unnecessarily heal horses, for crying out loud, but he's perfectly content to let her suffer?There's also absolutely no warning that you needed to have read the first series of the Nine Kingdoms to understa [...]

    5. Melissa on said:

      I must start my review by saying I am a big fan of Kurland. I have read everything she has published. I like her writing styles and her characters and even the repetitive things she puts in all her books because I know exactly what to expect from her. I waited till all three books were out in this trilogy before I began it because I knew I would throw a huge temper tantrum if I didn't because she likes to leave you hanging at the end of her Nine Kingdoms books. I liked that this book went side b [...]

      Ruith is the son of an evil mage and after witnessing the death of his family because of his father's arrogance, Ruith has vowed to never use magic again. He hides himself away in the mountains under the guise of an old mage. When Sarah's brother gets a hold of spells that could destroy the world, she seeks out Ruith in the hope that he will help stop her brother. Ruith initally refuses, but then he discovers that the spell Sarah's brother has gotten a hold of is one of his father's. Reluctantly [...]

    7. Toni on said:

      I was disappointed with this book. It had a terrible end, or rather a non end. It left the main characters in major trouble and just stopped. Ugh! So maybe I will look for whichever book takes it from here, but maybe not. I loved the last three books of the Nine Kingdoms, but then I had all three of them ,so I had an outcome. This is definitely not a stand alone book.

    8. Miranda on said:

      This review is more a culmination of my own personal navigation through the Nine Kingdoms series so far, rather than that of the novel Tapestry of Spells in general. That being said, I became an instant fan of Lynn Kurland upon discovering the first trilogy in this series a few months ago. Being a long time lover of the Fantasy genre, I picked up the works; Star of the Morning, Mage's Daughter, and Princess of Swords to add to my repitoire. I typically do extensive research before spending hard [...]

    9. Anne Hamilton on said:

      Since I hadn't read any of the other books in this series, I wasn't disappointed by the non-appearance of favourite characters, as other reviewers have been. The opening was a bit disjointed (I realise now it was getting me up to speed with other events in this universe) but, that aside, the only other grumble I have is that it ended on a cliffhanger. Ruith has witnessed the destruction of his family because of his father's arrogant use of magical power. Burying his own talent deep within himsel [...]

    10. Scander on said:

      Kurland continues the excellent 9 Kingdoms series with this next installment. Kurland proves to be a rather skilled fantasy writer and her character development and dialog is quite engaging. The 9 Kingdoms is an interesting world and I found the book and the two following for this trilogy to be enjoyable. Yes, Kurland is using a familiar formula here. Male protagonist meets female protagonist. They don't like each other at first, but eventually fall in love, etc. Same ol' same ol'! But it works [...]

    11. Katie McP on said:

      First, since some confusion exists regarding the progression of the Nine Kingdom's books, here's a current list (as of Jan '15):Two Prelude short stories, found in anthologies with other authors:- The Queen in Winter ("A Whisper of Spring" when Symon, the first king of Neroche, woos and wins Iolaire, princess of Ainneamh)- To Weave a Web of Magic ("The Tale of Two Swords" where Mehar of Angesand and Gilraehen, --th king of Neroche, fall in love and the legendary sword of Angesand is forged.)Miac [...]

    12. Kendra Vasquez on said:

      Repetitive internal thoughts detracted from story's pace, but I still love the strong world-building. It took a few chapters for me to personally connect with the characters but then they matched what I was used to with this author's writing. The sudden ending left me seeking the next book immediately.

    13. Danette Hamburger on said:

      I love this author, she writes beautifully and I can’t put the books down.

    14. Tabitha on said:

      Disappointing. After reading about Morgan this was kind of a let down.

    15. Rhonda Soukup on said:

      I was a little disappointed that this storyline was before the other trilogy, but maybe there is a reason. Still a good read.

      Sarah of Doire has been burying gold for months, hoping to leave the small, bland village of Doire behind. When her mother, who also happens to be the local witchwoman, dies, it's finally her chance. The visits from the aspiring nobles who will pay handsomely for her mother's last drops of beautifying potions or pages from her spellbook have become tedious, however beneficial. Then of course there's her brother Daniel, who has a little bit of magic himself and stays away from her for the most pa [...]

    17. Lynn on said:

      Today’s post is on A Tapestry of Spells by Lynn Kurland. It is the first in a new Nine Kingdoms trilogy. It is 343 pages long and is published by Berkley. The cover has one of the main characters on it. There is no sex, some mild language, and action violence in this book. The intended reader is someone who likes high fantasy, sweeping storylines, and some romance in it. Adults will enjoy this book and series more because of the writing style but teenagers could read it and enjoy it. There Be [...]

    18. Terri on said:

      Lynn Kurland returns to the world of the Nine Kingdoms in this spin-off series. Sarah of Doire is a likeable new heroine, independent and ambitious, but oppressed by her brother, Daniel. Daniel manages to get his hands on half a page of Gair of Ceangall's book, containing a spell Gair created to strip magic away from other mages, thereby increasing his own formidable power. Daniel sets out with the spell, intent on stealing magic and becoming the most powerful magician the world has ever known. [...]

    19. Shannan on said:

      I think this is my least favorite book in the series so far and that's mainly for two reasons. 1) There were too many characters and most of them didn't need to be there. I can think of at least three that didn't add to the story at all and mostly served to take up space and - when Kurland spent time on them - detracted from the characters who the story was actually about. I think these characters were added in for a comedic aspect, but they would've been far more enjoyable if they played any so [...]

    20. Terry (Ter05 TwiMoms/ MundieMoms) on said:

      This is the fourth book of a series, and I am afraid I am rating it compared to the others (hard not to do that). I gave them all five stars. I was totally caught up in the story of Miach and Morgan in the first three books, and had a little trouble getting into new characters although they are in the same world and time frame. I loved the book - just not as much as the first three. Ruith is a very interesting man as he has hidden his magic for 20 years and lived pretty much as a hermit. I knew [...]

    21. Kathy * Bookworm Nation on said:

      I was excited when I found A Tapestry of Spells, since I enjoyed the Nine Kingdoms trilogy I had read before. I knew it was set in the same place, following new characters. After I began reading I realized it wasn’t only the same place but the same time. The story runs concurrently with the Nine Kingdoms trilogy. To be honest, I didn’t like that it was almost the same story, just told from a completely different perspective. It kind of felt like a lot of re-hash and some of the mystery was g [...]

    22. Melanie on said:

      Like one of the other reviewers, I was a little confused when I started reading as I thought this was about another character from the earlier book. At first, I thought it was about Morgan's brother, Runach, who makes an appearance in "Princess of the Sword." But it's not. It's about another one of her brother's, Ruith, who we learn also survived the well incident.I was kind of disappointed as much of the character interactions (Ruith & Sarah) in this book are pretty much the same ones that [...]

    23. Chrissyreads on said:

      Girl who hates magic, dude who has magicThere are a lot of similarities to the relationship between Sarah/Ruith and Morgan/Miach.I, however, am a sucker for romance and fantasy. So, I don't mind this series at all. It is a bit repetitive and the start of this book was a bit clumsy. Otherwise, I'd recommend it to those who like long series and romance in their fantasy.

    24. Angela on said:

      I devoured the first arc of Nine Kingdoms stories (Morgan & Miach's story) so it was with great eagerness that I delved into this one. The first time I read it, it took me a bit to get into. I think because I was really busy trying to put it into a timeline with the first trilogy. They occur concurrently, and I think at some point I'll go back and re-read Morgan & Miach's story so I can accurately put that together.The second time I read it, the timeline came a bit more easily to me, and [...]

    25. Terree on said:

      I really liked this book well at least most of the characters! I love Ruith and his struggle with who he is and was and his ability or maybe inability to come to terms with it. I also like Master Franciscus and all of the mystery that surrounds him :)I think I will really enjoy watching how his character unfolds in future books. I also adore the wand waving mage who produces flowers and unicorns. I don't have a problem with the evil characters. Why? They are evil. They started out evil, they are [...]

    26. Lindsey on said:

      I must admit I was expecting a continuation of Morgain and Miach's story since this was labeled as Nine Kingdoms #4. I did not realize that the Nine Kingdoms series is a set of three trilogies. I felt like I was reading their story though since we still had the mysterious handsome powerful mage hiding his powers from the girl he loves- a girl he just met on a quest to stop evil magic from Gair's well. And this powerful mage happens to love just braiding her hair and brushing it. There is a diffe [...]

    27. Ruman on said:

      4.5 stars!I was really confused throughout the novel, thinking that Ruith was actually Runach from the previous trilogy, asking myself questions of: wasn't he with Sollier? as well as, isn't he burned?Having names starting with R just threw me off.Also, Ruith and Sarah's romance has no originality whatsoever - 1. Ruith lied to Sarah about who he was and she found out who he was at an awkward moment.2. Ruith also brushes Sarah's hair, like Miach brushes Morgan's hair (is that normal to have a man [...]

    28. Editt on said:

      This is the start of a companion trilogy to the first trilogy of the Nine Kingdoms. Light, romantic (safe, clean, etc - which does get redundant in how she describes the looks), and good paced story. Lynn Kurland does have quirks have repetition - a comment which I'm repeating (ie. all her main characters seem to get teary eyed or "distracted" by the beauty of the handsome/beautiful love interestI could go on). I enjoyed the read despite the lack of originality in some areas. Overall its clean a [...]

    29. Aubrie on said:

      I would actually give this book 2 1/2 stars but I had a really hard time getting into it. I was expecting it to have some references to more characters from the previous three books in the series. I understand that it is about a new set of characters and there are a couple of references to previous characters, but they didn't make sense to me. I kept trying to find the timeline in relation to the previous in the series, but nothing would add up. The timeline doesn't make sense and so it ruined m [...]

    30. Mary Beth on said:

      I enjoyed this book very much. It is a fantasy romance with lots of quiet moments between the two lead characters. There is tons of romance and it is a clean read.It involves Sarah and Ruith. Sarah is a witch's daughter and Ruith is the thought to be dead son of an evil wizard. They are on a quest to stop Sarah's evil brother from destroying the world. Along the way, they will encounter all manner of hardships. At a few points I thought the story was getting drawn out a bit too much, but I soldi [...]
