Book Review: The Weaver Sage book one: Weaver

12721855Title: The Weaver Sage book one: Weaver
By: John Ambrowitz
Rating: 5 out of 5

(First off: The Cover is beautiful.)
Quotes I love:
“Stop trying to protect me. It’s insulting, not endearing.” I love this line said by Moira.
“We’re partners, nor friends.” This line is said from Moira to James and then again it is used from Alex to Moira when she is trying to make a point and I just love the reuse of it.
“Don’t ever call me a liability again,” she (Alex) hissed at him. “I don’t have to,” he (secret) grinned widely. “You’re not anymore.” <- this proves she’s getting stronger. You can’t be fifteen and weak in this world.


Fifteen-year old Alex Cronlord just met the boy of her dreams. Literally. Unfortunately, the dream involved him killing her. When she encounters him at her school the next morning, Alex understandably freaks out – and her mother’s bizarre behavior only makes it worse. What Alex doesn’t realize is that she can see the future – which will get her into a whole lot of trouble.

Across town, FBI Agent Moira McBain and her partner Andy Hall investigate a series of house burnings in Dallas, Texas. When a clue leads them to the Cronlords, Moira discovers a disturbing link between Alex’s family and her own – which opens an old wound Moira has spent years trying to ignore.

Something is rotten in Dallas, Texas – something involving a secret society, children with extraordinary powers, and human-looking creatures who might literally be out of this world ….

Demons (Xorda), secret Societies (Wells Society), and genetically altered DNA (children test subjects!), oh my! First off, I would recommend this to plenty of readers, young adult, paranormal, light Sci-Fi, and thriller lovers.

Fifteen year old Alex is a high school student with a loving dad, a cold, but over all good natured mother, and a best friend that everyone should have. After having a nightmare about being chased and coming face to face with someone that is going to hurt, if not kill her, she is a little rattled. But what makes this nightmare a reality is when she sees the supposed kid at school.

Slowly her nightmare becomes real and with it her normal life as a fifteen year old girl shatters and there’s no way in going back. Secrets about her mother and the people she worked for known as the Wells Society comes into the light and you find out that they are trying to create genetically altered kids, one of which was Alex. Her parent’s marriage ruined, Alex, her dad, and Moira, an F.B.I. agent, have to now stay a step ahead of her own mother to survive. But the Wells Society isn’t the only thing to worry about…

Dipping into John Abramowitz’s world of Weaver you can’t be for certain what’s around the corner. Trust no one.

What I loved the most about this book is that as the story started to unravel he really doesn’t explain who the bad guys are. I mean, you have horrible things, and house fires, and runaways which have murdered and done bad things, but who is truly the bad guy? Do you really know every person as well as you think you do? The moment I thought I had it all figured out I was hit with a twist that I both loved and felt sad about. The story does keep you guessing and it’s great!

This book one hit every mark and then some. There isn’t any real slow places, every scene is needed and some points are referenced back to, conversations are important so you better pay attention, and you’re characters are in depth, lovable, flawed, and kick ass. J I couldn’t have asked for a better crew of characters in this book. The book also had a good ending with plenty of mystery and questions to leave you wanting more, but an ending that satisfied you temporarily. Haha I would still recommend buying the next book, VOID.
