It’s a great pleasure to be sharing my review for Weave of Love by Rachel J Bonner today as part of the blog tour and it’s thanks to Rachel at Rachels Random Resources I have the opportunity.
About the book
Weave of Love (Choices and Consequences Book 3)
What if the choice you have to make has devastating consequences for others?
How can anyone know the right thing to do?
Leonie chose to sacrifice everything to save other people. Now those around her have to face the consequences – and those consequences are not what they expected.
Prospero must deal with his own guilt. He was the one who gave Leonie the tools she needed – her life was in his hands. To make the most of what she did, he will have to face up to all the family issues he has avoided for so long. Whatever he chooses to do, someone he loves will be hurt. For Leonie’s sake, is he now strong enough to make the choice he couldn’t make before?
The crisis predicted by Lord Gabriel has come and gone. But his task isn’t over. Leonie’s very existence may be out in the open but Gabriel discovers that the past is never what it seems – and nor is the present. How can he use what he now knows to bring together those who have been enemies for as long as anyone can remember? If he fails in this, everything he’s had to do so far will be in vain.

Well to be perfectly honest I am totally kicking myself just now and the reason being that I haven’t read books one and two and went straight into book three. Something I really don’t like doing but the synopsis for Weave of Love got me and I just had to read it. I honestly am glad that I have though and at the beginning of the book you get a handy little run down of what you’ve missed so far or a nice refresh if you have read them.
Now I will admit that I did feel like I’d missed out a bit by not reading the first two books but it didn’t spoil my enjoyment at all, but I will be catching up on the series before reading book four.
Weave of Love isn’t a fast paced story, it’s more character driven and I enjoyed getting to know the characters. Both Perry (Prospero) and Leonie were intriguing and I really liked Perry’s family.
I’m not going to give anything away about this story or too much about the characters but the thing I found extraordinary is that even though I went into this saga in the middle I was totally drawn in, the author writes with fluidity and I found myself totally sucked in. It’s a story where time just vanishes and pages fly by.
I am definitely hooked and I can’t wait to catch up, I’m always late to the party. I will however be very much looking forward to book four, it promises to be a cracker.
Here’s a little bit about the other books to whet your appetite –
Strand of Faith – book 1
A girl. A monk. An unthinkable sacrifice.
When the choice is between love and life, how can anyone decide?
In a post-apocalyptic future, a girl and a monk, both with extraordinary mental powers, have compelling reasons not to fall in love. But their choices will have consequences for the rest of the world.
After the troubles of his youth, Brother Prospero has found comfort and fulfilment in the monastery. Then he discovers something that forces him to reconsider his whole vocation. How can it possibly be right to leave a life of worship and service for human desire? And if he does leave, will the pressures from his past destroy him?
Orphaned and mistreated, Leonie has found sanctuary and safety at the Abbey. When she comes into contact with Prospero everything spirals out of her control. Everyone she’s ever loved has died. She can’t do that to him. But how can she walk away from the first place she’s truly belonged?
Abbot Gabriel is faced with an impossible choice. He can do nothing and watch the world descend into war. Or he can manipulate events and ensure peace – at the cost of two lives that he is responsible for. Is he strong enough to sacrifice those he loves?
Thread of Hope – book 2
This is a story of faith, god and fantasy all mixed into a beautifully written tale of love and consequences of our actions….one that will stay with you… The Bookwormery
What if your secrets are so dangerous they could destroy the one you love?
Is honesty always the best policy?
Leonie may have run away but Prospero will find her. He loves her and he wants a future with her by his side whatever the consequences. Only when he does find her, he ought to tell her who he really is, outside the monastery. That’ll make her run again. Dare he risk it? But if he doesn’t tell her, someone else may…
Marriage to Prospero is what Leonie wants most and the one thing she knows she can’t have. If he found out what she was really like, what she’d been, what she’d done, he’d despise her and she couldn’t bear that. Better to leave now than live a lie – but it’s harder than she expected. If only…
Gabriel is starting to discover the secrets inherent in Leonie, secrets that not even she knows, secrets that will tear the world apart. And the secrets he is keeping are tearing him apart. How can sacrificing those he loves possibly achieve peace when everything he discovers risks the death of millions
