Publication Date: July 15, 2013 | Series: The Legend of the Spider-Prince
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 she does from the bounty hunters and assassins sent by her archenemy. 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 all 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 courtly intrigue well-enough to keep the rebel leader and the rebellion alive, and do it without getting himself killed. About The Legend of the Spider-Prince series In a land where men have unbridled influence, but women hold the reins of power, a young rebel involved in a blood-feud becomes entangled in a deadly web of magic, court intrigue, and revenge in an escalating series 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.
How I loved this story, I adore the character of Wyl.
He is raised a rebel and always having a back and need of weapons when they get almost all killed, his leaders decided to go another road one that can cost them their lives. He is a secret bodyguard and raised in a wild way. when they get in court and he needs to learn the ways of a prince and how to behave, he has a hard time. but he needs it soon! A lot of intrigues and murder plans , betrayers and many more.
Well written adventure and thrilling parts in it. The characters are well worked out. I have been routing for Wyl(heim) from the beginning, he is lovable in his way. If they will all stay alive and get the throne will have to be seen, I will not say to much but so look forward to read more of this Author.
