Summary

Charlotte's magical adventures continue in Weaver's Lament, the sequel to Emma Newman's Brother's Ruin.

Charlotte is learning to control her emerging magical powers under the secret tutelage of Magus Hopkins. 

Her first covert mission takes her to the textile mill where her brother, Ben, is training with the Royal Society of the Esoteric Arts. He's asked for her help to identify the disgruntled workers who are apparently destroying expensive equipment.

And if she can't identify the culprits before it's too late, her brother will be exiled, and her family dishonoured...

Overprounce narration and thin plot

I have not enjoyed the over-pronounced narration of the author in her other books, but at times I forgot about it in this audio book because the story was so bad!

It's full of the author's repetitive drawn out conversations. The plot is thin, and obviously pulled together to write about the mills, and it's such a middle class description of working class life. Charlotte is either being pathetic needing looking after by a man, or hysterical and we are then exposed to the narrator's high pitched tones. It often slips into an old Mills and Boon romance - 'He's so devastatingly handsome....so divine...so beautiful.' It's such a childish and cheesy description of attraction.

I wouldn't listen to another of this series.
