Cobweb Bride, the first in this series, was one of my 2013 favourite reads.
In fact, it probably was my "favourite read of them all".
I fell head over heels about everything in it: The characters _especially the beginning of the relationship between Percy and the Black Knight _, the setting, the p ...more
‘Cobweb Forest’ is the concluding volume in Nazarian’s trilogy – a series that combines an Alternate Europe with an update and expansion of the Greek Persephone myth. There is a fairly standard genre story at work here: a plain young woman is gifted with an immense power and is pivotal to saving the world. She attracts the attentions of a handsome young knight who is far above her station by snapping at him, and they become romantically entangled. It’s also reassuring that every character presen ...more
Pulling in ancient myths and tying them together to be part of the grand scheme was such a lovely idea.
I don't think I can review this without spoiling it so I'll just say it is so worth th ...more

Vera Nazarian is an amazingly gifted writer and one who deserves to be widely known. In the Cobweb Bride series she will take you places you never imagined and bring even the Gods to life as she wraps up the final volume of this trilogy.
If you've read Cobweb Bride and Cobweb Empire you know that Death refuses to allow anyone (or anything!) to die as he is ...more
Persephone (the Goddess) is such a wicked thing - it really annoys me she got away with all the cruel things she did with a slap on the wrist. (Oh, you were temporarily insane, no problem bae, now come and take care ...more
A satisfying ending to the series.
It loses a half star due to too much repetition of information. If you've already given us a detailed description of a character it's not necessary to repeat that description every single time they appear in the story. There's also a scene where we get information on what's going on from the God's side of things. It's important information but the scene goes on and on and on. I was anxious to get back to the action and I found myself mentally screaming ...more
This installment was my favorite of the series for a number of reasons. The author went to great lengths to create an original world, filled with wel ...more
seriously the in-between waiting for each book to be publish is worth it. Have you ever read a book that is part of a series that totally rocks only to be disappointed in the next book? it happens a lot and it sucks because then I will be so depress and lazy I won't be able to function like a normal being for a few days..lol
so anyways I was skeptic when I started reading Cobweb Forest, I keep ...more
I'm not going to add a synopsis as those can be found elsewhere. I do want to say that I did very much enjoy this book, like the first two. However, unlike the first two I found myself losing interest somewhere halfway through for whatever reason. It still had that beautiful dreamy quality that Vera does so well but somehow some of the explanations or scene-hopping...more
Really clever use of mythology, history, and pure fantasy to create a wonderful tale. Few free books I can say truly make me a fan of an author, but I am sold.
Nice to read a trilogy where loose ends are tied up too, rather than the series I've been sucked into recently which show no signs of ever ending!
She immigrated to the USA from the former USSR as a kid, sold her first story at the age of 17, and since then has published numerous works in anthologies and magazines ...more
