As with all Robin Jarvis books The Woven Path is refreshingly original, very well written and absolutely full of spooky things and gore. I loved it as a child and continue to love it just as much as an adult.

The novel is a mixture of mythology, folklore and time travel and is - as always - full of a host of well-rounded and memorable characters (especially the unforgettable Webster sisters!) ( )

This was an engaging fantasy mixing mythology (Norse and Greek) with time travel. The story started a bit slowly, but then picked up when Neal and "Ted" end up in London during the Blitz in 1941. There are spies, demons, and ghosts as well as a spooky museum, home to the Webster sisters (aka, the Fates). I look forward to reading the next book in the series, The Raven's Knot. ( )

Very intriguing! I loved this book when I was younger. I should probably read it again. Very original. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0816770050, Paperback)

What kind of place is this? When Neil's father accepts a caretaker's job at the Wyrd Museum, Neil and his brother have to go live there with him.

The museum is owned by three old sisters who talk in circles, mumbling about fate and destiny. And then there are the exhibits, with everything from shrunken heads and mummies to stuffed ravens.

The sisters have warned Neil never to enter the room that holds The Separate Collection. Of course, that's just where Neil wants to go. Inside the secret room, he discovers something magical and dangerous -- and his life will never be the same.
