About the Book
Tanwen and the Corsyth weavers race to collect the strands of an ancient cure that might save Gryfelle. But Tanwen has a secret—Gryfelle isn’t the only one afflicted by the weaver’s curse.
As Queen Braith struggles to assert her rule, a new arrival throws her tenuous claim to the Tirian throne into question. Braith’s heart is turned upside down, and she’s not sure she can trust anyone—least of all herself.
The puppet master behind Gareth’s rise to power has designs on Tanwen and the story weavers and will stop at nothing to reclaim the throne. A plot to incite the angry peasants of Tir takes shape, and those dearest to Tanwen will be caught in the crossfire. As the fight for Tir consumes the realm, no one can remain innocent.

In My Opinion
Tanwen and her friends embark on a quest to find a cure for Gryfelle while unrest stirs in Tir. Y’all I was so excited to spend time with these fictional friends again, and Lindsay A. Franklin did not disappoint.
The Story Raider has a good balance of action and adventure with the weavers traveling across the lands in search of the cure and the internal struggles and realizations. Between Tanwen’s illness and her relationships with many around her (mostly Mor and her father but others as well) and Braith’s challenges as the new queen, there’s no shortage. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also an unseen enemy who is after Tanwen and creating havoc around Braith.
And Oh. My. Word! The very last word of this book made my jaw drop. Franklin delivers a blow that’s going to stick with me until the next book. And because of that (and everything else I am loving about this series), I cannot wait for the third and final book in The Weaver Trilogy.
