Legend of the Spider Prince Rebel

Rebel, first book in Legend of the Spider-Prince series is a fantasy book well worth the read. Be it characters, settings or story description, everything is in very rich detail and you can appreciate it right from the start.

At first, it was difficult for me to keep up with all the names, places and clans involved in the story. There were so many and tricky to learn (Ergei, Helgurdda, Nornholm, for example) that I was afraid I would never warm up to them and get the story as it’s supposed to be understood. Thankfully, just over a few chapters, I became more used to Wyl’s life as a rebel and I started flipping pages like mad in order to know what happens next.

Wyl is a great character. He is young, a good fighter and pretty smart. I liked him, the way he was always alert of his surroundings and still had kind of a soft heart, and was not a cold-blooded assassin as many would think. He is the type of character that doesn’t give away much of who he is just by looking at him for the first time. It’s a slow progression of getting to know him, and it’s something I enjoyed doing immensely.

The fighting scenes were my favorite parts of this book. It was like watching a good old fantasy movie in my head involving swords, daggers, bows and magic. People have to be skilled to survive, to be quick and act on instinct, sometimes even taking huge and crazy risks without knowing if you will live to tell the tale.

I really recommend this book if you like fantasy. I found it to be very exciting and I promise it won’t disappoint if you give it a chance.

About the Book:

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.

    This sounds like a book I would enjoy! I love when they are hard to keep up with at first because it just makes me pay closer attention and I get more into the book. And I love that women have the power in this book.. kind of like in our house! lol I have never heard of this author before but I can’t wait to see if I can find Margo at my library or online :)

  22. Sounds like a book similar to the category of Eragon? I just couldn’t get into that series no matter how hard I tried. I think that it was the way the author wrote but I do love to read about magic (and supernatural stuff).
