In the era of legends, two heroes have been cursed into the shadows…
When Poseidon’s conniving sea-queen captures daredevil Prince Dexios to be her slave, he must rely on his wits… and on a mysterious spider who writes him messages on her web. Only when the spider risks herself to aid his daring escape is she plunged back into her human form — as the legendary Arachne, unjustly judged by the goddess Athena and infamously cursed.
Ara distanced herself from humanity for centuries after her weaving competition with Athena, but the courageous prince’s plight tugged at her wary heart. Now as they flee the sea-queen, Dex and Ara are falling for each other, but he’s a crown prince with a very public life and an arranged betrothal to the daughter of an enemy king.
Can their blossoming love outweigh the dangers of leaving the shadows, breaking the betrothal, and sparking a perilous war?
