    If your a lover of fantasy,sci-fis, and overall genuine good reads than this story is definitely for you. Weaver of Odds meets all expectations. The story line itself was very unique,and the characters/creatures were well developed and endearing. Not to mention, the story is very well written. I can honestly say that there was never a boring moment in this read. No spoilers here, but I must say that for me this story was right up there with Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings. Simply amazing. Th [...]

    The storyline itself was exceptionally remarkable, and the characters/animals were very much created and charming. There was never an exhausting minute in this read.

    I sort of stumbled into this novel by googling around "YA dystopian coming of age fantasy books" and this rare gem fell into my hands. I asked around at my university, and I couldn't believe how many people heard of Vivian Amberville. I was surprised it has so few reviews on compared to how many people read it and said it was amazing. My own take is that: This book is not only amazing. It's a masterpiece!-small spoiler ahead:It's the story of a mysterious, orphaned teenager who learns she can m [...]

  • Marc Whitehouse

    I've intended to write a review for this book since finishing it a few weeks back, but it's such a unique and enthralling read, it's daunting attempting to sum it up in a few short words.I didn't quite know what to expect to begin with, especially having relatively little experience in the fantasy genre, but by the end of the first part of the book, I was hooked.It's the kind of story that pulls you in with both hands and doesn't let go until you realise it's been three hours since you last blin [...]

    Vivian Amberville is a form of meta-fiction that captures the various facets of imagination in a unique manner. It speaks about the responsibilities that come with engaging our imagination in becoming free-willed and then manifestation. In this novel, the mind (as an imagining) realm has also an inner will which is solely molded by the spirit of each Weaver. By doing this we can say that it has an ethical dimension that questions our mode of being in the world through our actions (for a higher p [...]

    This book was recommended to me by a friend. At first I was a bit sceptical about the concept of "manipulating events", but after reading a bit from my friend's copy, I bought my own: it's a great story! Right now this author seems a bit no-name, but I can't believe that there's no more reviews here. It's a book that grabs the reader and pulls the reader into the story, I literally cried over some of the scenes, really wonderful book. Looking forward to the next book in the series. I'm keeping a [...]

    An amazing fiction that takes you by the hand through the dark, yet colorful world of Vivian. An easy read and the characters pop out from the pages. I quite enjoyed reading it and cannot wait for the next books in the series!!!!

  • Tim Heesink

    This is the first time I've been impressed with a new author and a new release.A very original idea to combine epic fiction with philosophy. I honestly cannot compare this work with anything else. It outruns Matrix by a mile! It is a colourful double universe, science fiction and fantasy all in one with a cast of characters you will fall in love with (or despise) right away.The author even created fictional languages to make the world more believable and boy, it really shows! The Artisan and Kaa [...]

    After passing this book up a few times because I thought it was for YA, I contacted the author on FB to find out if it would appeal to someone my age ( 60 ). A number of readers familiar with the book, informed me that I would indeed enjoy reading Vivian Amberville. I was very glad because the premise intrigued me from the start.This is a wonderful book. The characters are well-written. Their three-dimensionality is consistently evident to the least of them. There is mystery, fantasy, sci-fi and [...]
