Description

A lush tapestry of magic, romance, and revolucion, drawing inspiration from Bolivian politics and history.

"A vibrant feast of a book." - Margaret Rogerson, NYT bestselling author of An Enchantment of Ravens
"Pure magic." - Shelby Mahurin, NYT bestselling author of Serpent & Dove
"A wholly unique book for the YA shelf." - Adrienne Young, NYT bestselling author of Sky in the Deep
"A spellbinding, vivid debut." - Rebecca Ross, author of Queen's Rising

Ximena is the decoy Condesa, a stand-in for the last remaining Illustrian royal. Her people lost everything when the usurper, Atoc, used an ancient relic to summon ghosts and drive the Illustrians from La Ciudad. Now Ximena's motivated by her insatiable thirst for revenge, and her rare ability to spin thread from moonlight.

When Atoc demands the real Condesa's hand in marriage, it's Ximena's duty to go in her stead. She relishes the chance, as Illustrian spies have reported that Atoc's no longer carrying his deadly relic. If Ximena can find it, she can return the true aristocrata to their rightful place.

She hunts for the relic, using her weaving ability to hide messages in tapestries for the resistance. But when a masked vigilante, a warm-hearted princesa, and a thoughtful healer challenge Ximena, 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.

Review quote

"A refreshing, page-turning debut." - Kirkus Reviews

"Debut author Ibanez 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 lush, vibrant feast of a book, set in a world as colorful and inventive as the fierce heroine's magical tapestries. I could have remained lost in its pages forever." - Margaret Rogerson, New York Times bestselling author of An Enchantment of Ravens

"Isabel Ibanez brings a modern story to an ancient world--with immersive prose, original magic, and characters as rich as the Bolivian culture that constructs the story. A wholly unique book for the YA shelf." - Adrienne Young, New York Times bestselling author of Sky in the Deep

"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 Ibanez 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
