the undesirables ostracized from society.
But the web of
protection Eliana has woven around herself begins to unravel when a
young girl is found lying unconscious in a pool of blood on the stones
outside the house. Robbed of speech by her attackers, the only clue to
her identity is one word tattooed in invisible ink across her palm:

the weaver—and could she hold Eliana’s fate in her hand?
finds herself growing closer to this injured girl she is bound to in
ways she doesn’t understand, the enchanting lies of the island begin to
crumble, revealing a deep and ancient corruption. Joining a band of
brave rebels determined to expose the island’s dark secrets, Eliana
becomes a target of ruthless forces determined to destroy her. To save

thought was her greatest weakness: her dreams. Download and start listening now!
