Aaron didn’t want to get involved with the Spider Mother and he certainly didn’t want to become part of its monstrous Spider Host. It’s not his fault! Or so he keeps telling himself, and he’s an excellent liar; of course, lying is what got him into this mess in the first place.

See, it was his fault. He was a small-bit con artist; he had the skill to go on to bigger cons, but he was too chicken-shit to try for the big-time. It was one of his cons that brought him to the Spider Mother’s attention. It needed a “face” to act as its “ambassador” (its two “daughters”, Dierdre and Angel had their strengths, but were too damaged in their ways to fill the role). Aaron accepted because he was sure he could find a way to weasel out again.

It’s been three years now and he’s desperate to get out, but he’s beginning to doubt that anyone can help him. He’s heard of wizards: Perhaps one of them can break the webs he talked himself into…
