Spider by Aurelia T. Evans

Oh, what a tangled web she weaves…

One moment, Elizabeth is the modest, religiously devout nanny who accidentally brings her four charges to a slightly inappropriate circus filled with all the things a phobic like her could ever fear. The next, she's sucked into the demonic world of Arcanium and transformed into Arcanium's newest oddity, the Spider.

Her anxieties and phobias quickly attract the attention of the Creature, the gargoyle-like guardian of the haunted funhouse, who feeds on fear—and she offers a veritable feast from which he can relieve her, especially after she's been locked in a glass box with giant spiders crawling over her eight-limbed body all day.

However, she also catches the eye of her jealous ex-lover, who helped make her into the scared, secretive woman she's become, a woman who wrapped herself in the piety of her childhood cult just to escape him.

Between Arcanium and her own personal demons, Elizabeth has all four of her hands full.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I have been waiting FOREVER for this book... in human time, not jinni time.

The Arcanium is a magical/demonic place, full of wonder and fascinating characters all lead by Bell, the jinni. Each installment in this series hits on a different nerve. Each new inductee to the circus has their own demon to slay, if you will. Each has their own story to tell, and with each and every story I get drawn deeper into the Arcanium.

Elizabeth's story, also known as Spider, is a darker tale. When one is afraid of everything, how can they continue to live? If the unknown is just as scary as the known, what is there to fear? You will need to read her story, see what her life has been built upon, watch as she figures out how to navigate a world that has always been beyond her reach.

Is Bell the bad guy? I have to admit that I found myself angry with him at times, his machinations seemed evil and humiliating. Trying to find the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel proved difficult, if there even is one!

This story was fantastic! It is dark and depraved but has breaks of light. For the first time we see another evil, not the demons we know, but another outside force trying to find a foothold. This story has depth and levity, it has humor and crassness, there's romance and eroticism – it has everything I've come to expect from Aurelia T. Evans’ Arcanium series. This story just has a lot more...
