A wisp of gossamer, about the size and substance of a spider's web.
~Monica Baldwin

In D'Shee, a fishing town in a world like our own, Rhet and Peteal make their living by cleaning the catches of the day on the docks. Everyday the same as the last, but it suits them both fine. As a strange ship sails into the dock, baring a flag with a web of a spider and, carrying mysterious women of remarkable beauty, the world as Rhet and Peteal know it changes forever. The women are searching for the prophesied man told about in their holy book and hope to find him in D'Shee. Much to Rhet's dismay, he maybe the man that they are looking for.

The author takes the reader to a world of magic and wonder. Each region visited has their own individual look and style. Truly, there is a web being spun as this tale is told. The reader becomes entrapped in wanting to follow the characters as they travel and try to find where their fate may take them. Places and locals are beautifully described in just enough detail to give a great view of things, without being overly wordily. The way the book ended had me wanting more to read; I was shocked that it stopped how it did, actually made my jaw drop! What a way to have the reader look forward to the next book in the series. Highly recommend it to everyone, young and old. ( )

Rhet guts fish for a living. His live is pretty simple; he works and hangs out with his friend Peteal. The only thing out of the ordinary in his town is himself. He’s different from everybody, he has dark hair and he’s tall but everybody in his town is blonde and short. One day while working, nine exotic looking women took him and his friend prisoners without saying why. What Rhet doesn’t know is that he has the power to destroy the world.

I had a hard time getting to remember the names of towns and people, but I got used to it and it was easier to understand where Rhet was and where he was going next. One of my favorite parts was when Marcellin describes how The Rinsa choose their husbands. I liked how fresh and original Marcellin’s writing was. ( )
