All the pattern content in the print book is also in the eBook. The print version of the book is beautifully designed and filled with high-quality photographs, graphics, and full-page illustrations by Matt Kish everypageofmobydick. Some of this quality has necessarily been sacrificed to create files that can be easily downloaded and printed.
However, owning digital copies of the patterns allows you to print out a working copy that you can carry with you and mark up while you knit without harming your book.

Held in near silent isolation she is nonetheless intelligent, able to read although she doesn't remember being taught how. She is rescued from her prison by her uncle, but this is no ordinary rescue - he teleports her using powers that their family members possess. Cassandra and her uncle are Weavers, a part of humankind on the next evolutionary step that are able to communicate mentally via "the Web" not the Internet. On arrival at the compound they live in Cassandra meets her aunt and uncle who stress to her that she needs to be trained as a Weaver, untrained Weavers become mad if they are not located in time.
As Cassandra begins to explore her powers she finds that she is extraordinary even by Weaver standards. The reason for her ability to read without knowing how is that Cassandra is a Chimera. Whilst in her mother's womb Cassandra absorbed her twin sister but rather than the twin disappearing she stayed in Cassandras head as Silver. Unbeknown to Cassandra, Silver has wiped Cassandras memories of her life before her kidnap to protect her but she slowly restores them as she and Cassandra explore their unique powers.
As I said earlier, I really enjoyed this book - sometimes I'm not sure how wise it is to start a Young Adult book as they tend to dwell overlong on romantic interest rather than plot. No such problems with this book however as the two? It's not a criticism as such but the only slight niggle was the authors massive attention to detail. For example we are painfully aware of each time a character removes or dons their boots and jacket - I half expected to read each stage of the knot tying their laces! This is only a minor point however and I hope that the series continues in the same standard.
I'm going to jump straight into book two and find out! View all 3 comments. Jul 03, Tricia McAllister Houseman rated it really liked it. When it comes to several of the items that Ms.

Boy was I was wrong. A girl, Cassandra, is held captive in a cell for 8 yrs. After watching her hearing her parents murdered, and then seeing their bodies. Her only company are two guards, who never talk to her.
Macmillan: Series: Mike Yeager and Peggy Weaver
She is taken once a year for a physical. Basically, there is not life in all of this. It is simply being held captive in a room where she is give food and exercise but pretty much nothing else. No communication with others, no education, no joy, no fun, no books … nothing but the cell they leave her in.
Until she is 13, when she hits puberty. Her captives decide to be a little sicker, and more twisted. She appears to others who are like her, who are going to do what they can to save her but in the end it comes down to Cassandra deciding what she must do to save herself.
Who she must trust, who she must run from, and who she should learn from … even though she is pretty much a genius. In this story, you might find a few mistakes. Here and there, but I am impressed by Ms. I am on book 2, Changeling, and her writing has grown as the story has grown. Mar 01, Dianna rated it really liked it. This book reminds me a lot of the Psy-Changeling series, but a bit darker and perhaps more of a YA novel. I grabbed it for my Kindle when a friend gave a great review on Facebook, without reading much more about the book itself. I look forward to reading on, and I think it was a good first book - even though I reserve the right to change my mind depending on how the rest of the series goes.
I couldn't quite figu This book reminds me a lot of the Psy-Changeling series, but a bit darker and perhaps more of a YA novel. I couldn't quite figure out if the central character's main issue was one that was good or evil. It bothered me so much, in the sense of incomplete understanding, that I had to take a break from the series.
I do plan to go back to it, probably soon. It hides things from the protagonist and experiments on their body and other people without permission. After some explanations, I think we're supposed to be convinced it's an immature soul, exploring boundaries and making mistakes, and professing apology afterward.
It just doesn't seem innocent to me, and I don't know if I can be convinced that it really is the protective energy it claims to be. Aug 13, Alexisa rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone. The description of the book caught my eye and when I noticed it was a series I also requested the additional books in the series. I have to admit that I was nervous about this one. I mean I requested three books from a series based on the description without even reading one of the books, what if I hated it and still had to read books two and three because I already said I would.
I made myself sit down to start Chimera, before the end of the first chapter I was hooked. This is the story of Cassandra Rainbow, a girl who was taken after seeing her parents killed. She is then help prisoner until she turns thirteen, that is when her remaining family discover that she is still alive and breaker her out. We learn in this book that the human race is still evolving and Weavers are that evolution. But like with any people there are good and bad among them, then to add more we now know there is life out there.

Mar 24, Erika rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy , young-adult , netgalley. Now, eight years later, she is rescued by her Uncle Gerome, an uncle she didn't know about. She goes to live with Gerome and his wife Maggie in a compound with other Weavers, like them. Having been in captivity since she was a child, it takes her some time to adjust to her new found freedom, and to understand who, and what, she is. Even though she is only thirteen, she decides that she will try to stop a civil war and kill the man who held her captive and murdered her parents.
That would be enough for any teenage girl to deal with, but Cassandra also has to get used to the idea of a twin sister she never knew she had.
An invisible twin, who lives in the web and talks to Cassandra inside of her head. When her uncle brings home a friend from another planet, things really start to get interesting A unique premise, and a good start to a new young adult series. Warning to younger readers - there are a few brief scenes describing inappropriate and unwelcome touching near the beginning that might be disturbing.
