The Smuggler, The Spy and The Spider

by Diana Rivers

Ishlair’s Councilor, Donya’s birthmother, her bondsisters and almost every Hadra in Ishlair agree: Donya needs to forget about her Shokarn lover and stay home.

It wasn’t her idea to first go abroad as a Hadra spy, but now her heart belongs to Suinyari. To be with her lover means lies, deceit, even ignoring her own nameā€”all anathema to a Hadra. But she cannot help but go back…

A thief called Spider, an audacious smuggler as well as family and lovers join their voices in the story of the Hadra who fell in love with the enemy and balanced her people and her heart on the razor’s edge of fate.

Lambda Literary Review

Reviewer Anna Furtado: Rivers is a master storyteller in the true sense of the word, conjuring up rich images in the mind's eye and allowing the reader to become lost in the streets and alleys of Eezore and beyond, completely absorbed in the lives of these women as they struggle to find their way to autonomy.
