Publisher's Summary

Alex Bledsoe continues the adventures of freelance sword jockey Eddie LaCrosse in the thrilling He Drank, and Saw the Spider.

After he fails to save a stranger from being mauled to death by a bear, a young mercenary is saddled with the baby girl the man died to protect. He leaves her with a kindly shepherd family and goes on with his violent life.

Now, 16 years later, that young mercenary has grown up to become cynical sword jockey Eddie LaCrosse. When his vacation travels bring him back to that same part of the world, he can't resist trying to discover what has become of the mysterious infant.

He finds that the child, now a lovely young teenager named Isadora, is at the center of a complicated web of intrigue involving two feuding kings, a smitten prince, a powerful sorceress, an inhuman monster, and long-buried secrets too shocking to imagine. And once again she needs his help.

They say a spider in your cup will poison you but only if you see it. Eddie, helped by his smart, resourceful girlfriend Liz, must look through the dregs of the past to find the truth about the present - and risk what might happen if he, too, sees the spider.

    "Eddie and Liz take a vacation NOT!"
    Where does He Drank, and Saw the Spider rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm not going to compare it to any one book but to several series. Alex Bledsoe really knows how to develop characters and dramatic situations. This series though historical reminds me a bit of "Alex Verus" by Benedict Jacka. Even though in different times they are very well developed and have some magic in them

    What was one of the most memorable moments of He Drank, and Saw the Spider?

    Not all that we think is evil really is, sometimes it's just circumstances I don't want to give it away.

    Which character – as performed by Stefan Rudnicki – was your favorite?

    Once again a great narrator with a great story

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Eddie and Liz mess with a guy who was being rough on a young girl.......gotta laugh

    Any additional comments?
