Betrayal by one you love is the cruelest cut of all. And when the Lord of Crisfell betrays it is done on a grand scale. Ashi'mei Candre feels her life is destroyed in that instant, but her love's betrayal goes far further- he is sacrificing his own people. Amongst the islands of Crisfell, honour and clan is everything, but that may also be their undoing. A dark secret from the past will now come back with a vengeance, and Ashi'mei must put her own troubles aside to face this greater danger. For over the dark sea is a menace of flesh and hunger, which having been turned back once, is only more determined to remake Crisfell in its image. When the danger comes from within as well as without, Ashi'mei's world is doomed. And yet there are two from beyond the island who may help, one a passionate young man from their traditional enemy, and the other a compelling creature with mastery of the flesh to rival the menace beyond the sea. With friends and clan her only hope, the time to stand and fight has come. Ashi'mei must search within herself for salvation for her people, face her darkest fears, and risk everything she loves.

A beginning...

This is an early example of Philippa Ballantine's work. The story is a good and engaging one, although the writing and production values fall a bit shy of the standard that Pip achieved for her later works. Everyone must start somewhere, and this is her start. I do hope that someday she will choose to revisit this world and either remaster this story or add on to it. While Weaver's Web is a complete story, it has many more threads to be followed in a rich and detailed world. I'd like to see some of those tracked down.

As usual, Pip Ballantine has managed to create a believable characters and a marvelous plot that pull you into their story and make the listening a personal experience. All I have heard so far by her has been excellent and I strongly recommend any and all of her podcasts to anyone with a desire to have your imagination button tweaked.
