|Summary, etc.:||Among the ashes of a dying world, an agent of the Commandant finds a letter. It reads: Burn before reading. Thus begins an unlikely correspondence between two rival agents hellbent on securing the best possible future for their warring factions. Now, what began as a taunt, a battlefield boast, grows into something more. Something epic. Something romantic. Something that could change the past and the future. Except the discovery of their bond would mean death for each of them.|

*Starred Review* Red is a time-traveling agent who rebraids strands to help the Agency, a world of tech and logic. Blue is an agent who rebraids for the Garden, a community rooted in organic matter. They have been doing and undoing each other's work for years when Blue leaves Red the first letter. The two female spies battle across the strands, sabotaging each other's missions with increasing subtlety and skill, and leaving each other letters contained in the taste of sumac, in the pattern of a fabric's weave, in the flow of lava over Atlantis, in a piece of cod hidden within a seal. What unfolds is a twisting, sapphic time travel fantasy love story that never stops surprising: El-Mohtar and Gladstone have written the ultimate in enemies-to-lovers romance, but with an intricate layer of lush, uncanny descriptions of the fantastic strands the agents are shifting; not to mention a careful net of time travel and parallel universes. This suspenseful novel is a superb realization of a difficult concept bulging with details: a time travel rival-secret-agent epistolary romance interspersed with descriptions of fascinating secret missions. Readers will reach the end and want to turn back to the start. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
