Description
"In a tale of magic, Indian lore, and radical female friendship, Reya must pass the ultimate test: the Bookweaver's daughter must weave her own destiny. The fate of Kasmira depends on it."-- Title page verso.
Description
In the ancient Indian kingdom of Kasmira, stories don't begin with "once upon a time." Instead, Kasmiris start a woman's story with those who came before her: her parents, grandparents, ancestors. For fourteen-year-old Reya Kandhari, her story always starts the same: with the fabled line of Bookweavers, tracing centuries back to the lost Yogis--the mythical guardians of Kasmiri culture who created the world itself. As a result, Reya's entire life has been shaped by words. Words of mystique and mythology. Words of magic that allow her father, the Bookweaver, to bring his stories to life. Words of power that make him the target of tyrants who will stop at nothing to destroy magic in Kasmira. Living in disguise as a peasant in the fields, Reya's sole focus is protecting the Bookweaver's secret. But when her father is taken, Reya must flee deep into the jungle, alone with her best friend Nina and one ancient book. Grappling with Reya's newfound magic, the two girls find themselves in the center of a war of liberation where magic reigns unchecked, and destiny takes a dark turn. As the stakes get higher, Reya realizes that her father's legacy contains more power than she ever imagined. For Reya Kandhari is more than just a fugitive--she is a symbol of revolution. And that makes her a threat. In a tale of magic, Indian lore, and radical female friendship, Reya must pass the final test: the Bookweaver's daughter must weave her own destiny. The fate of Kasmira depends on it.
