My thoughts...This is a daydream of mine: rifling through an old, dusty box of books and finding something magical. Tessa finds more than she bargains for when she discovers an old tome and a eerily beautiful tapestry with a glorious unicorn shining in the threads.
For me, Warped was a refreshing tale, full of wonder and imagination. Not only was the story original, but the action kept me turning pages. Parts of it were sweet, some were scary, and others were heartbreaking. The writing was very colorful and gave me great images of the characters and magical locations.
I instantly connected with the characters. There was a strong pull between Tessa and Will, one that at times left me frustrated. These two have a connection that goes well beyond physical. Another set of interesting characters were the Fates, introduced in the beginning of the story. They are creepy and add an intriguing element to the story. While they play on the sidelines, they definitely have a lot of pull.
Overall, I enjoyed this magical tale by Maurissa Guibord. I would recommend it to readers of all ages. I will be watching for more works by this talented author.
