Weavers is a somewhat standard fantasy (at first) with a decent political component in a setting reminiscent of Japan. I put four stars, but the true rating is probably closer to 3.5. I just didn't get into this one as easily as Wooding's later stuff like The Fade or the Ketty jay books. Part of that might be because the characters and world just didn't seem as interesting to me. Would definitely recommend it to fans of Wooding.
