9780060839574: Worldweavers: Gift of the Unmage

Who knew you'd be a true weaver?

Great things have been expected of Thea, the seventh child of two seventh children. Now, with Cheveyo, a mage, Thea has begun to weave herself a new magical identity, infused with elements of the original worlds. But back home, Thea keeps her abilities hidden and attends the Wandless Academy, the one school on Earth for those who have no apparent magical talent. It is there that Thea realizes that her enemies are hungrier and more dangerous than she knew. What's more, her greatest strength may be the powerlessness she has resisted for so long.

About the Author:

Alma Alexander is the author of several previous novels, including Worldweavers: Gift of the Unmage and Worldweavers: Spellspam. She was born in Yugoslavia, grew up in the United Kingdom and Africa, and now lives in the state of Washington.

From Booklist:

They say there's no heavier burden than great potential, and Thea is weighted down. The seventh child of two seventh children, she has been watched from near and far for signs of magical greatness, but, alas, none have appeared. Her perpetually disappointed father finally brings her to a place where she meets Grandma Spider, who shows her that she has the ability to weave dreams and stories and a new life for herself. But Thea, who has subjugated her powers to thwart enemies, now finds that they won't take no for an answer. The book, which is the first in the Worldweavers trilogy, is itself divided into three parts: before, during, and after Thea's spirit quest. Alexander does an exquisite job of showing Thea's growth, her ability to maintain her own counsel, and her boldness. Although the languid pacing in the middle is appropriate to the action, it does drag the story a bit. But once Thea is at Wandless Academy for the magically challenged, she faces a barrage of experiences, many terrifying. Readers will look forward to finding out how Thea saves her world. Ilene Cooper
