The Blurb

Within the boroughs of London, nestled among its streets, hides another city filled with magic.

Ever since Anna can remember, her aunt has warned her of the dangers of magic. She has taught her to fear how it twists and knots and turns into something dark and deadly.

It was, after all, magic that killed her parents and left her in her aunt’s care. It’s why she has been protected from the magical world and, in one year’s time, what little magic she has will be bound. She will join her aunt alongside the other Binders who believe magic is a sin not to be used, but denied. Only one more year and she will be free of the curse of magic, her aunt’s teachings and the disappointment of the little she is capable of.

Nothing – and no one – could change her mind before then. Could it?

The Review

Wow. Threadneedle was not what I was expecting.

I knew it was going to be a book that included magic but I had some misconceptions. I was not expecting it to be set in modern times and I did not expect it to be a campus novel. I thought I would like it but I didn’t know I would love it.

It focuses on the story of Anna who is having her magic restricted by her paranoid aunty. However, before she loses her magic forever Anna’s circle of friends try to save her.

At its heart, Threadneedle is the story of finding yourself, embracing that person and not letting anyone control you. I really loved it and now I am off to buy the sequel.

Threadneedle by Cari Thomas is available now.
