A wonderful beginning in the life story of Thren Felhorn , Legendary leader of the spider guild & father of the later hero the watcher. Although I found the book well written, there were parts I found missing. I would liked to have known more about his training under darkhand, His romance with Marion & the birth of his first son. Nevertheless I still loved the book & purchased a nook just so I could read it. Mr. Dalglish is my favorite fantasy writer, I have read & enjoyed all of his books and Cloak & Spider was no exception.

Not my cup of tea. I like yarn spinners and I like them very much when the yarn spinners move me forward swiftly and coherently. I found Mr Dalglish's story of intrigue and fantasy a bit halting and seemingly pasted together with large pieces of what I call, "descriptologue" (description masquerading as dialogue). I also like fewer paragraphs of detailed scene and minds setting and more of-- moving the story onward. Maybe push the author and his/her musings out and let the characters back in to move the tale forward, let them tell the yarn! Good dialogue short and to the point ....moving a story forward IS my cup of tea. Unfortunately I petered-out with ho hums and never finished this book. Maybe the next in the series.... but not this one.

I enjoyed the history this gave me and I found bad guys have had a rough life as well as our champions. I am confused though about Aaron, I just read he killed his older brother at 5 years old and this book speaks of him and his older brother at 8 years old.

This is the first thing by this author I have read. Very enjoyable. It had some silly typos in it that I would not normally mention except that it is so short. Flash fiction at it's finest and very pulp in its delivery of intense, fast-paced action.
