Waiting on Wednesday: Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken

Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken (published by Egmont USA, March 23, 2010)

When Wayland North brings rain to a region that’s been dry for more than ten years, he’s promised anything he’d like as a reward. He chooses the village elder’s daughter, sixteen-year-old Sydelle Mirabel, a skilled weaver with an unusual knack for repairing his magical cloaks. Though Sydelle has dreamt of escaping her home, she’s hurt that her parents relinquish her so freely, and finds herself awed and afraid of the slightly ragtag wizard who is unlike any of the men of magic in the tales she’s heard.

The pair rushes toward the capital, intent to stop an imminent war, pursued by Reuel Dorwan (a dark wizard who has taken a keen interest in Sydelle) and plagued by unusually wild weather. But the sudden earthquakes and freak snowstorms may not be a coincidence. As Sydelle discovers North’s dark secret and the reason for his interest in her, and learns to master her own mysterious power, it becomes increasingly clear that the fate of the kingdom rests in her fingertips. She will be either a savior, weaving together the frayed bonds between Saldorra and Auster, or the disastrous force that destroys both kingdoms forever.

This is another Tenners book and I've heard some good things about it. I love fantasy and this book sounds like it has an unusual but interesting plot. Plus the cover is really pretty!
