    This book is an absolute blast to read. I read a LOT of urban fantasy because it?s a great genre, and I?ve never read anything that blends Elves and magic with future world technology. It?s refreshing, interesting, and fun. As the first book in the series, Sarah Madsen does a...

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy WEAVER'S FOLLY is an entertaining read with a pretty fresh premise. Aside from the brilliant futuristic setting and elves being "out of the closet" so to speak, I loved the slight allusions to Tolkien and his writings interspersed in the p...

    Weaver?s Folly is my kind of read. Fae (okay Elf) based with a mystery to solve, suspense, action, an underdog type protagonist and to top it off with some romantic tension, this book had everything that I absolutely adore in my reading material. Allyssa is an elf living in the h...

    Weaver?s Folly is the first of a new paranormal series by Sarah Madsen and introduces elf Alyssa D?Yaragen who works as a freelance thief. She is an elf weaver and can perform magic, though she can?t handle technology without shorting out her brain. There are potential love trian...

    A big thank you to NetGalley and Curiosity Quills Press for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. First time reading this author. I am rating this a 3.5, mainly due to lack of information. I felt at a disadvantage the entire book. Would have liked more information on the elf w...

    I received this eBook from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. Please visit me at Shh, I am Reading for more reviews! This was a wonderful blend of fantasy, myth and future. I love anything Fae, even though Alyssa is actually an elf. Close enough. The elves have made t...

    Blending the mystical and technological without either losing their distinction or creating an arbitrary division, Madsen creates a world part way between urban high-fantasy and cyberpunk thriller. When elves revealed themselves to the world, they kept the existence of magic a secre...

    An elf who earns a living as a cat burglar. Wonderful premise and a highly entertaining read! Like vampires in True Blood, elves are "out" in a futuristic America, trying to navigate identity politics and magic that clashes with technology. Alissa's got to pull off a high-stakes theft....

    This book actually seems to tell two stories. One story is about Alyssa and Logan. They are "runners" or cat burglars. They are quite elite. I really enjoyed this part of the book. They had a great comradeship that made you want to read more about them. They were complete polar opposit...

    Oh man this was such a blast of a heist book! Totally gave me a Kate Daniels meets Shadowrun vibe with awesome tech details and magical touches all weaved (hah pun not intended but totally going with it LOL) together seamlessly. Added bonus for this little bi reader is the very bi p...

    Elves are real and living in a near-future Atlanta in this Urban Fantasy/Cyberpunk mash up. Filled with both tech and magic, this one will keep you guessing. The third act is a maze of great twists that will keep you turning the pages. ...

    This book is so much fun!!! I'm not normally a huge fan of elves, but this novel gives you elves like you haven't seen them before. Really, I adore our main character Alyssa--and all of the side characters! They are fresh and fun! Plus, the world that Madsen crafts is almost fa...

    This was a fun romp - a little bit sci-fi/dystopia, a little bit fantasy/faerie tale, a little bit adventure/espionage. Unfortunately, I called the bad guy from first introduction (even though it's supposed to be a surprise). I also appreciated the normalcy of queer/same-sex relationsh...
