The Weavers of Saramyr. It was built with an eye for aesthetics, in the fashion of the Saramyr folk, ensuring ostentation was kept to a minimum while the spare beauty of its form was picked out and assembled in harmony with its surroundings. The austere simplicity of its pale walls was contrasted by ornate wooden shutters and curved stone lintels shaped into graceful horns at either end. It sat in eerie serenity even amid the howling storm.

Author: Chris Wooding. Name: Weavers of Saramyr. Series: Book 1 of The Braided Path. By Chris Wooding One Kaiku was twenty harvests of age the first time she died. There was no memory of how she had come to this. Recollection evaded her, made slippery by ecstasy, the sensation of tranquillity that soaked every fibre of her body. And the sights, oh, such sights as would have made her weep if she could. The world to her was a golden shimmer, millions upon millions of tiny threads crowding her gaze, shifting, waving. They tugged and teased her gently, wafting her unhurriedly onward towards some unseen destination.

The Braided Path is a trilogy of fantasy novels by British writer Chris Wooding. The series starts with The Weavers of Saramyr, released in 2004, which was Wooding's first adult fantasy book. This is reflected in the book not just in the style of writing, but also in the graphic scenes as well. The second book, The Skein of Lament, was published in 2004, while The Ascendancy Veil was published in 2005 to end the trilogy.

I have just finished the Weavers of Saramyr trilogy and I would like to give some fresh impressions: first . I would say that the Braided Path, and the Wooding books I've referenced above are somewhat more sophisticated.

The first book, the Braided Path, had it all: an interesting magic system, strong characters, good plot, mystery and twists. They deal with adults and there are adult sexual themes, although nothing explicit.

This is the story of the ancient empire of Saramyr—an empire that rules over a land overwhelmed by evil. The evil comes from within the empire’s center: the Weavers, a sect of male magicians close to the throne, intent on killing any child born with magical powers. But now the Empress has given birth to just such a child…and a revolution is brewing.

And then I don't know what happened...
This book just couldn't grab me.
I never could quite figure out how the magic system worked, which was important because the magic system was always being used. I just couldn't put together how it was described with how it worked. I guess I'm too used to the Sanderson style magic system, where things are a little more firm.
The characters started out very compelling, but as the story carried on they started doing more and more uncharacteristic things without any clear description on their thought process. At one point a character who is religiously for one side very suddenly changes sides without really describing what was going on, other than "loves!".
The author tries to spring some twists on you, but they're coming from characters that are minor and whose POV we've never seen, so it's less a foreshadowed twist and more something out of left field.
It was kind of confusing how the author would change POV without a page break or even a paragraph break. Who is this paragraph about! I found myself thinking that a lot.

Oh! So dissapointed.... I started reading forward (early) because, sadly, the work was so dull. Started well, if a bit labored, but got no better. It read like the work of a new author, full of promise, but not worth finishing itself. Couple of sex scenes thrown in, like he's proving to himself he can do it.

So dissapointed. I reread some of the one-line reviews that moved me to buy this, and realized they were for the author, not the book...

As a longtime fan of Science fiction/ fantasy when I am reading a new author I look for several things; good character development, a good overall picture of this new world I have entered, a fun plot with some twists, and originality.

Chris Wooding delivers on all counts and I recommend his books to anyone. I take small issue with the price of his books but that's like complaining about the glove box in a Ferrari.

Unique world and story. Powers were different and awesome. Lots of strong girl characters. Some descriptions went on too long.

I love this whole trilogy a lot, and it ranks probably in the top 3 best fantasy trilogies I've ever read.

Scary thought, the Weavers, but the story is enticing and I couldn't put it down. I read it in record time, which was kinda silly because I needed something to keep me going until the next Ketty Jay novel. But it was just that good.
Gardataur
Poorly written, did not keep me interested.
Since it is the beginning to a trilogy, it naturally takes a while for fall in love with and understand the characters. However, it does not take long. I am excited to read the next book and I definitely recommend it to thrill seekers of open minds!
