When Atoc demands the real Condesa's hand in marriage, it's Ximena's duty to go in her stead. Using the opportunity to get close to Atoc, she can steal his relic and return the true aristocrata to their rightful place. But a masked vigilante, a warm-hearted princess, and a thoughtful healer challenge Ximena, and her mission becomes more complicated. There could be a way to overthrow the usurper without starting another war, but only if Ximena turns her back on revenge - and her Condesa.

* "Woven in Moonlight is a nuanced and empathetic fantasy... Touching on ideas of restorative justice in a unique and vivid setting, Isabel Ibañez delivers a confident, subtle and inspiring debut about what it takes to move a divided society forward." - BookPage, starred review

* "Isabel Ibañez's gorgeously written YA debut builds a world that feels true to life with a distinctive magic system at its core.

Woven in Moonight spins a satisfying tale of adventure, romance and magic." - Shelf Awareness, starred review

A refreshing, page-turning debut. - Kirkus Reviews

Debut author Ibañez creates a complex story, pairing an intriguing, subtle layer of magic with the deftly handled political intricacies. - Publishers Weekly

With sword fights, damsels, vigilantes, magic, and betrayal, this thoughtful novel should have broad appeal. - Booklist

[Woven in Moonlight] brings much to the table, from mouth-watering depictions of food to juicy politics to an intricate magic system involving weaving moonlight into tapestries, but where it really shines is in its insistence that people should question their inherent beliefs. - BCCB

"A story that glitters as bright as Ximena's moondust. With its slow burn romance and simmering intrigue, Woven in Moonlight kept me reading long into the night. Isabel Ibañez writes pure magic." - Shelby Mahurin, New York Times bestselling author of Serpent & Dove

"A spellbinding, vivid debut. Plot twists abound, the magic is uniquely drawn, and intrigue illuminates the pages. The world of Inkasisa is so beautifully rendered I never wanted to leave it." - Rebecca Ross, author of Queen's Rising
