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 feels more like an adult book with a YA story line. That’s not always a good thing, but in Spider-Prince it works. My son also read it and said it felt like a 2nd book, almost too rushed but from an adult perspective, I think being thrown into the action straight away was pretty cool. He’s used to YA writing, I think that’s where he’s coming from. It’s not a quick read, or an easy read. You really have to pay attention to keep up with the story. Overall I think it’s worth the time. It ends up being a really good book with fantastic characters and all sorts of action. I found the male perspective refreshing and I love that there was a dominant female presence. Wyl is completely and totally wrapped up in this seemingly endless and fruitless war. You feel for him and all the horrible, horrible positions he finds himself in. This would be a fantastic airplane read or vacation read, when you can devote chunks of time and let yourself become immersed in Wyl’s story.

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.
