Someone recommended this book to me and when I went to find it on Amazon it was free. I hate to say it but free sometimes scares me, there are a lot of free books out there. There were good things going for this book though (1) the reader that recommended it knows my reading style (2) it’s book one of a 5 book series, plus novellas, so someone is reading this series. But before I go to far the blurb:
When the head of the Araneidae clan is found poisoned in her nest, her eldest daughter, Lourdes, becomes their clan s new maven. If her clan is to survive, she has but one choice: she must marry before her nest is seized. All she needs is a warrior fierce enough to protect her city and safeguard her clansmen. Such a male is Rhys the Cold.
Born the youngest son of an impoverished maven, the only things Rhys has to his name are his sword and his mercenary reputation. His clan is starving, but their fondness for the flesh of fellow Araneaeans makes them unwelcome dinner guests. Torn between loyalty to his clan and fascination with his future bride, Rhys first taste of Lourdes threatens to melt the cold encasing his heart.
Amid the chaos of battle, Lourdes s sister disappears and is feared captured. Lourdes and Rhys pursue their enemies into the southlands, where they discover an odd plague ravaging southern clans as it travels north, to Erania. Determined to survive, Lourdes will discover whether she s worth her silk or if she s spun the thread by which her clan will hang.
Okay now let’s get into the review, I really liked this book! I enjoyed the characters, I found the world unique and well developed, and found the writing pace well done. It was a great PNR read and I can’t wait to continue this series!
