Summary

After the critically acclaimed epic fantasy The Wolf comes The Spider, book two in Leo Carew's Under the Northern Sky series. 

A battle has been won, but the war still wages on....

Roper, the Black Lord of the northern people, may have vanquished the Suthern army at the Battle of Harstathur. But the greatest threat to his people lies in the hands of more shadowy forces.

In the south, the disgraced Bellamus bides his time. Learning that the young Lord Roper is planning to invade the southern lands, Bellamus conspires with his Queen to unleash a weapon so deadly it could wipe out Roper's people altogether.

And at a time when Roper needs his friends more than ever, treachery from within puts the lives of those he loves in mortal danger....

Superb...

The author writes in a way that you are supporting the two main protagonists. expertly done considering they are on opposing sides.

The narrator could read the phone directory and make it exciting.

What a combination :)

Fitting continuation of an outstanding series

I was as addicted to this audiobook as to 'The Wolf' and urge anyone to buy this intelligent, enthralling, highly original series.

I felt there were a few minor missteps in the storytelling - missed opportunities, mainly. But nothing detracted from the whole. It absolutely rips you along with it, and leaves you wanting more.

The performance is outstanding. One of the best readers I've heard and embodies the book's atmosphere perfectly.

Great follow on

This was written in the same style as the 1st. Excellent story, great narration and an end worth waiting for.

It’s been left open for the 3 rd book which I am looking forward too.

Can’t wait for the third!

Seriously could not wait for my evening meetings with the Black Lord and his legions...

I have a rather short attention span... but this book kept me captivated to the end. Had to set my timer on audible else I would’ve kept on listening!

Looking forward to the sequel...
