For the next couple of days, the CSFF bloggers will be featuring a new release, Curse of the Spider King by Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper.
Imagine being a teenager living in a world where you just don't feel like you fit in. Sounds familiar, right? I mean, what teenager ever feels like they really do fit in? Then, there's all those feelings about "what if I'm adopted" and your parents assure you that you aren't...yet there is that nagging feeling that you are. You start to see that you look NOTHING like your parents...especially when your skin is blue!! What about the violet eyes? Superhuman powers? This is the life that seven 13 year-olds are currently living. They don't fit in on Earth...so, where in the world might they fit in?
Curse of the Spider King features these seven young souls in search of where they belong. Each one finds their way to their "true" home and family through a book of all things! Strange things start to happen once they get their hands on the book and even more so when they touch the lettering. Why does no one else see all of this? Are they dreaming? Who is that creepy man with the trenchcoat? What are drefids, wisps, and who is this Spider King? All of this and more can be found within the pages of this riveting novel by Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper.
