Curse of the Spider King
November 3, 2009 at 6:42 pm #44620
Here’s what I thought of it:
He did it again. Wayne Thomas Batson has written the best book of 2009. He also wrote the best book of 2008. And 2007, 2006 and 2005. Itís getting repetitive. Batson is getting awfully close to becoming my favorite author of all time.
Curse of the Spider King pits seven seemingly normal kids who know nothing of their absolutely terrifying past against a wide array of nasty beasties including the frustratingly cruel Wisps, freaky dudes with X-men like blades protruding from their knuckles called the Drefid, and Cragons: big trees intent on crushing you in their branches. Only a janitor who everyone says has a few screws loose and a couple of middle school teachers seem to know anything about whatís going on. To put it simply, itís almost impossible to stop reading this book once youíve started. Read it. Now. Or a hungry Warspider might pay you a visit sometime.
And one more thing. If Mr. Batson doesnít release book 2 soon Iím going to go insane.November 3, 2009 at 9:14 pm #44621
Don’t forget that Christopher Hopper co-authored the book…November 5, 2009 at 9:33 pm #44622
Yeah. It’s just that CotSK is so different than The White Lion Chronicles that it’s hard to think of it like that…
Anyway, Amazon just posted the new Venom and Song coverart! It’s so cool!November 8, 2009 at 5:30 pm #44623
They did??!! I have to go see that! :oNovember 8, 2009 at 11:59 pm #44624
Yeah, that’s it as my profile picture too. Isn’t it awesome?November 9, 2009 at 3:55 pm #44625
Um, you have the CotSK cover…November 10, 2009 at 4:36 pm #44626
On my computer, when I look at my profile, I see the Venom and Song cover. That’s weird…February 23, 2010 at 4:21 am #44627
Just popping in to ask: Does anybody know anything about a Berinfell Prophecies book after Venom and Song?February 23, 2010 at 12:31 pm #44628
I haven’t heard anything yet. I don’t think the authors have started it if there is one.February 14, 2012 at 8:50 pm #44629
The time has come, the pieces are set, and The Spider King has waited ever so patiently for this opportune moment. He strikes and the Allyran Elves have no clue the magnitude of force that has been unleashed. What will become of the elves? Is their race doomed to become nothing more than a footnote in the rewrite of history at the hands of The Spider King? Or will their one shred of hope in the Berinfell Prophecies come to pass. This adventurous tale is co-written by Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper. Curse of the Spider King is the first book of the Berinfell Prophecies and is full of great twists and turns, ups and downs, and leaves you wanting more! Authors Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper trigger the imagination to enter a new world of glorious heroism and horrific evil.July 11, 2012 at 10:36 pm #44633
Uh, if you go to http://www.christopherhopper.com there is a search bar, you can type in “Berinfell”, and they have a post from…back in May, I think, where Mr. Hopper is talking about formatting the 3rd book.May 28, 2013 at 1:11 am #46498
Anyone read The Tide of Unmaking? Came out in November 2012, unless I’m hugely mistaken (That was off the top of my head).
I haven’t yet.
