Review: Spider's Lullaby
Spider's Lullaby by James R. Tuck
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: Urban Fantasy
Reading Level: Adult
Recommended for: fans of darker, male-oriented Urban Fantasy
Trigger Warnings: violence, murder, threat of rape, drug dealers, frat boys, lots of spiders
My Thoughts: I was very happy to have more Charlotte. While the idea of a brown recluse werespider freaks me out, I liked her anyway. I also enjoyed learning more about Ronnie, and meeting Ivan, who is a very interesting character that I hope we will see more of.
This is a novella, so not very long and it moves fast. Deacon runs up against a demon in this one, so there is some major unpleasantness, and of course there are hundreds of baby spiders involved, so arachnophobes should take note. Still, a fun series so far for fans of darker, male-oriented urban fantasy.

And his last hope means surrendering to the inner darkness waiting hungrily to consume him ...
