Curse of the Spider King: The Berinfell Prophecies Series - Book One


Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper’s Curse of the Spider King, Book 1 of the Berinfell Prophecies

Do remember during KM Wilsher's BLOG DAYS OF SUMMER series we did a survey of "back cover blurbs? I don't think I've ever read a better back cover blurb than this one.

The Seven succeeding Elven Lords of Allyra were dead, lost in the Siege of Berinfell as babes. At least that's what everyone thought until tremors from a distant world known as Earth, revealed strange signs that Elven blood lived among its peoples. With a glimmer of hope in their hearts, sentinels are sent to see if the signs are true. But theirs is not a lone errand. The ruling warlord of Allyra, the Spider King, has sent his own scouts to hunt down the Seven and finish the job they failed to complete many ages ago.

Now 13-year-olds on the brink of the Age of Reckoning when their Elven gifts will be manifest, discover the unthinkable truth that their adoptive families are not their only kin. With mysterious Sentinels revealing breathtaking secrets of the past, and dark strangers haunting their every move, will the young Elf Lords find the way back to the home of their birth? Worlds and races collide as the forces of good and evil battle. Will anyone escape the Curse of the Spider King?

Didn't have a chance to read the book yet? I liked the comment about the blurb, though. Back cover blurbs, often much the same kind of theing as needs to be included in a query letter, can make or break a book and as someone ever trying to get my opwn published, its always useful to read comments on what others have done with that part of the publication process.

Sweet! I've got this one on my bookshelf. I posted this blurb on my site forever ago. lol

Me and a few other people are in the midst of making a professional quality book trailer for Mr. Batson and Mr. Hopper's book. The authors are holding a really cool contest on their website, and the winners get their names in the next book, as well as a bunch of other really cool prizes.

I'll be sure to post that on my blog when it's finished. Should be in about a month or so... =D

Emmalyn, I agree! I love surveying back cover blurbs, just for that reason!

Chris- I know I saw that post. It was a good one. You are making a trailer? Entering a contest? I can't wait. Your creativity rocks!

The Wayne ThomasBatson? :) Thank you for stopping by. We are all stoked for you two!
