Altered (Crewel World #2) by Gennifer Albin

Life. Possibility. Choice.
All taken from Adelice by the Guild—until she took them back.

But amid the splendid ruins of Earth, Adelice discovers how dangerous freedom can be. Hunted by soulless Remnants sent by Cormac Patton and the Guild, Adelice finds a world that’s far from deserted. Although allies are easy to find on Earth, knowing who to trust isn’t. Because everyone has secrets, especially those Adelice loves most. Secrets they would kill to protect. Secrets that will redefine each of them. Torn between two brothers and two worlds, Adelice must choose what to fight for.

In this thrilling sequel to Crewel, Adelice is about to learn how tangled up her past and future really are. Her parents ran to protect her, but nothing can save her from her destiny, and once she uncovers the truth, it will change everything.

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-In this sequel to Crewel (Farrar, 2012), Adelice, a talented 16-year-old Spinster, leaves behind her life in Arras, along with brothers Jost and Erik, for the damaged Earth. There, she finds that her ability to weave the threads of life together is thwarted. She discovers gifted men called Tailors-beings who are able to alter and piece together the fabrics of individual lives. Erik hides the fact that he is a skilled Tailor, and Adelice is one of the rarest beings: both Spinster and Tailor. The story is about survival and romance (Adelice is drawn to both Jost and Erik). As the heroine’s feelings intensify, she challenges the idea that Spinsters who consummate a romance will lose their ability to weave. Albin aptly weaves her unique vocabulary into the complex plot. Adelice fights the Guild, the powerful leaders of Arras, and the Remnants, soulless former humans, and struggles to understand herself and her abilities. “How can I discover who I am when my world is built of secrets and shadows?” she asks herself. The loose ends involving Adelice’s family and a world-saving creation called “The Whorl” will leave fans waiting eagerly for book three. Altered is a mix of romance and adventure that will be most enjoyable for readers of the first novel.-Maggie Knapp, Trinity Valley School, Fort Worth, TXα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.

From Booklist

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave.” Albin’s story of Adelice, the talented spinster of Crewel (2012), picks up right where it left off as she and the brothers Jost and Erik escape the controlled fibers of Arras for a hope of freedom on Earth. Turns out Earth is not abandoned, danger lurks everywhere in the form of Remnants who have been sent to hunt her down, and a foil for Cormac Patton awaits to exercise his own form of control and domination. The setting is a darker postapocalypse world than in the first installment, with interesting new developments and a host of new characters, whose secrets impact Adelice. Much of the world building unfolds in murky exposition, and it eventually takes Albert Einstein (seriously) to explain it. A tighter reweaving would make this a better book, but the continuing saga of the love triangle and another dramatic ending will leave fans of the series wanting more. Grades 7-10. –Cindy Dobrez

My Thoughts: I have been waiting a little over a year for this audio book. Crewel ended with such a cliffhanger that I was impatient – at best – to see how everything would play out. In short, Altered by Gennifer Albin was totally worth the wait. For sure. But, before I proceed with my review, let me get something out in the open (full disclosure and all that). I’m currently basking in the glow of an audio book I finished not 15 minutes ago. All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill. That review will be coming soon, but I fear this one might be a bit rushed …

So, about Altered. I’m honestly reluctant to say much about specifics. There are a lot of surprises that were truly unexpected, and I’d hate to ruin them for anyone. Shock value is just so rare these days …

But, I remember in Crewel being torn. Did I like Jost better or Eric? I can’t remember what, if any, choice I made. But, let’s just say that I very quickly knew which would be myaudio book boyfriend – Eric. Before any revelations, before any surprises, before any really big happenings, I knew he was my choice. And I knew I really wanted to see him and Adelice together. Did I get that? Well, you’ll have to listen it to find out!

Altered was fast-paced, full of surprises, and very hard to put down. And, again, the ending didn’t really tie much of anything up. But, this time it seemed like a bit less of a cliffhanger. Perhaps it’s because they haven’t just jumped through the weave … anywho, if you’ve been anxiously waiting to see what happens next in Crewel World, I think it’s safe to say that this will meet your expectations. There are lots of new revelations, new things about the Guild, new truths about everything – and some surprising discoveries. audio book 3, Crewelest, cannot come soon enough for me!
