Synopsis
In the world of Sorrow’s Knot, the dead do not rest easy. Every patch of shadow might be home to something hungry and nearly invisible, something deadly. The dead can only be repelled or destroyed with magically knotted cords and yarns. The women who tie these knots are called binders.

Otter is the daughter of Willow, a binder of great power. She’s a proud and privileged girl who takes it for granted that she will be a binder some day herself. But when Willow’s power begins to turn inward and tear her apart, Otter finds herself trapped with a responsibility she’s not ready for, and a power she no longer wants. (Goodreads)
Why I'm Waiting
Everybody sees those arms creeping toward the girl, right? Just checking. This book seems vaguely reminiscent of Sabriel, and I'm also thinking of the three Fates, Moirai, who spun, measured and then cut the threads of life. But anywho, this book sounds delightfully creepy and just wonderful. I'm really looking forward to it.

What's everyone else waiting for?

  1. *grabby hands* Oh. No pun intended.

    This looks really goood! And creepy. It's certainly a different concept where everyone knows about the restless dead. Awesome pick, Courtney! :)

  2. This one sounds really interesting. I wonder why the dead can't rest in peace. It definitely has a nice premise.

    1. Good question. Yeah, I'm wondering if it's a retelling or inspired by some myth.

  3. that does sound creepy and good. I don't know if I've ever read a book that could even compare to this one.
