Legend of the Spider-Prince: REBEL
Wyl is a young rebel whose life of dangerous lies and hidden truths has cost him his childhood and his ability to trust. He is fanatically loyal to the rebel leader, a woman embroiled in a blood-feud with Trascolm’s ruling clan. When he’s not away spying, he’s her secret bodyguard—she needs protection from her army of renegades and outlaws as much as from bounty-hunters and assassins sent by her archenemy.
But when the rebellion meets with disaster, the rebel leader’s strategy changes. Wyl is thrust into a hostile royal court of underage teens—mere children, to his mind. He’s expected to embrace this more civilized way of life, but his brutally-honed instincts betray him, and he makes enemies instead of friends. Wyl—a boy raised by outlaws—is in over his head and must somehow master the subtleties of court intrigue well enough to keep the rebel leader and her rebellion alive, despite the treacherous machinations of her enemies, and do it without getting himself killed.
About the Legend of the Spider-Prince series
In a war-torn land where men have unbridled influence, but women hold the reins of power, a young rebel becomes entangled in a deadly web of magic, court intrigue, and revenge amid an escalating wave of events that will ultimately destroy magic, overturn governments, cause the near-collapse of civilization, even threaten the very existence of life on Eryth—and make him a legend.
Legend of the Spider Prince was a great book. The author creates an attachment to characters in a way that most writers can not and allows you to feel like you are with the characters and thinking as they are. This book is also great because it creates an atmosphere and world in which you feel like you want to live in and become a part of. You can envision yourself in the story and see the trees and hills. However the story at the beginning moves a little too fast. It was difficult at times to know what was going on and at points was just plain confusing. You had to pay complete 100% attention in order to know what was going on and if you weren’t the entire story was confusing. I felt like the story seemed more like a second book than a first in the series. I t just seemed like you were supposed to know the info beforehand. Over all I would give the book 3.5 – 4 stars . The book and story were great but I wouldn’t give it higher than that because of how rushed the beginning felt.
About the Author
I loved fairy tales as a child, but could never get enough of them until I learned to read for myself. I spent my formative years with my nose in a book or playing dungeon master for my sisters long before there were actual games requiring one. Our Barbies fought Klingons, conquered the galaxy—and always had room on their spaceship for horses.
I am a horsewoman, an archer, a fencer, a former military officer, and a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism—all useful skills and experiences for a fantasy novelist. I am currently holding down a day job in Mississippi, USA, where I live with my husband and two daughters, and am presently down to one horse, one cat, and one dog—and ‘way too many books.
