The kingdom was renowned for the quality of their spider silk thread and the many textiles that were made from it, gowns, cloaks, rope, and even armor.  The reason for the quality and abundance of the silk was a large, but benign, spider that lived only, it seemed, in the kingdom named for it, Tortanak.


Lucine’s mother mastered spider silk and her stepmother mastered apples. To save herself and her kingdom, she too will need a talent to master.
