Warped by Maurissa Guibord
Tessa and her bookstore-owning father purchase a lot of books at an auction only to find that one of the boxes contains an old tapestry with a picture of a unicorn on it. Tessa is drawn to the tapestry and when she draws her fingers over it she finds herself pulled into a vision of the 1500's. In her vision she sees an Earl who has his thread of life withdrawn by a witch who weaves it into her tapestry. When Tessa pulls on a loose thread on the tapestry she accidentally frees Will De Chaucy, the Earl of her vision. He tells her that he has been imprisoned in the tapestry as a unicorn all this time. Tessa is happy to have freed Will and feels herself drawn to him but the witch who enslaved him wants her tapestry back. It is the tool she needs to keep herself young and immortal. Tessa is also contacted by the fates who spin life but who have been missing seven threads for centuries. Stuck between her love for Will, immortal creatures, and an evil witch, Tessa isn't sure how she can make everything right. A unique love story with a strong female lead character.
