Synopsis (via Goodreads): Tessa doesn't believe in magic. Or Fate. But there's something weird about the dusty unicorn tapestry she discovers in a box of old books. She finds the creature woven within it compelling and frightening. After the tapestry comes into her possession, Tessa experiences dreams of the past and scenes from a brutal hunt that she herself participated in. When she accidentally pulls a thread from the tapestry, Tessa releases a terrible centuries old secret. She also meets William de Chaucy, an irresistible 16th-century nobleman. His fate is as inextricably tied to the tapestry as Tessa's own. Together, they must correct the wrongs of the past. But then the Fates step in, making a tangled mess of Tessa's life. Now everyone she loves will be destroyed unless Tessa does their bidding and defeats a cruel and crafty ancient enemy.
Sometimes you run across a book that just works perfectly for you. Warped is one of them. I loved it from start to finish; the witty dialogue, the characterization, the romance, the plot elements. ALL OF IT. So great! Warped follows Tessa, a girl in modern times learning how to navigate life with her single father. When they bring home an unexpected surprise from an auction Tessa’s life gets all tangled up. For someone who doesn’t believe in fate, it sure seems to be knocking on her door! Warped read just like a movie to me and I could easily picture every scene in my head. Even with all of the plot twists everything flowed well and the pacing was perfect. Tessa and William’s interaction with one another felt genuine, as were all the character interactions. I was very happy with the ending. It does not leave things hanging wide open for you, so it doesn’t necessarily need a sequel but I would LOVE it if there was one. I want more! When you have a chance grab a copy for yourself and sit down for a brilliant read.
