A charming and stirring mythology

I bought the trilogy after reading the first book free as a monthly prime option. Could not put this series down. The primary characters were a bit too "perfect" in nature, but I was strangely pleased that Percy was of common, maybe even less than average appearance. She made for a wonderful struggling heroine. The extreme pathos of grappling with life and death matters, as well as human and "divine" weaknesses, made this a story to laugh, cry, and muse over. Whi
Cobweb Bride: The Complete Trilogy

I'll break it down per each book and then give my final review of the overall trilogy at the end.

#1: Cobweb Bride. March 31-April 2.
When I first downloaded and read this book (back in Sept.-Oct. 2014,) I knew I would download the complete trilogy at some point; and I did. (I reviewed the book then. For a more in-depth review, check that one out.) Then I sat on it for a year and a half before I had my backlog of books read. I decided to read this one again, becau

An intriguing take on what would happen if death suddenly stops for all things, including animals and plants. Death cannot continue to take souls to to their final resting place until he finds his cobweb bride. The books are absorbing, and a fun read. The first book sets up the world, and explores the idea of the cessation of death, and why death is looking for his cobweb bride. As the series goes along, deeper symbolism starts to be incorporated and explained, with death having several aspects, ...more

A trilogy, fiction/fantasy. The first book was a bit of a slog to get through but as you keep reading the story gets much more interesting.

Death is no longer an option. Everything stays "alive" after dying, some people become horrid nasty dead people and some stay the same as always. This also has an unexpected side effect of messing with the food supply.

Our heroine is just a poor peasant girl who doesn't really fit into her family. She becomes the heroine by doing what is necessary when necessa

Well it took me all of two days to read the trilogy. The novel was incredibly intriguing and drew me in with its midevil setting, Greek mythology, and the fact that the world needs to be saved by a young girl. I would recommend the novels to anyone who like fantasy, historical fiction, and mythology with a bit of romance dashed in but not too overpowering.

Well, it was an interesting take on the question of death and what would happen if death stopped. It was a little long in places and overly descriptive (like way too much sometimes) that the plot would stall but overall it was an enjoyable read.

I found much to identify with in mad, grieving Persephone. And Percy was a heroine I could really admire and love. I was dubious at first but I fell in love with these books.

I really got into these. Great twists, and totally unexpected changes. Worth a read for something different in the paranormal sense.

Cobweb Bride (Cobweb Bride Trilogy, #1) - 3 stars
This book is about an alternative Renaissance style world in Europe. Death comes to claim his bride and stops everyone from dying until she is found. While that might seem very nice on the surface the terminally ill and mortally wounded are suffering, just because you can’t die doesn’t mean you still don’t feel pain.

Overall I thought this to be an interesting storyline however I did feel like parts of the book dragged on and there was a little to
