CobwebBride

Cobweb Bride, the first in a new trilogy, is a book unlike anything I’ve read in a long while. This book is nothing less than a seriously interesting mix of historical fiction, fantasy, and mythology. Cobweb Bride follows several characters as they try to navigate a world where all death has stopped. Death himself is refusing to take anymore of the worlds souls until he finds his Cobweb Bride, meaning all of the sick and injured must suffer until he gets what he wants.

This book fell into my lap at the perfect time because I’ve been wanting to read more books with Death as an actual character and it doesn’t get much more real than death completely stopping by his hand. The story itself had such an interesting premise and it kept me engaged. The writing was beautiful, flowed extremely well, and was easy to read. In fact, I flew through this book very quickly.

All of the characters this book follows have their own quirks and motivations and such and it was interesting to read about them as they try to cope with this new reality, especially when they have no idea how long it will last. Persephone though, is one of the more interesting characters because while she is introduced as a very plain, unnoticeable sort of person, she’s actually quite formidable and important to the story and I honestly can’t wait to see where the future books take her.

All in all, Cobweb Bride was a fun, interesting, quick read and I’m very much looking forward to the rest of the trilogy.

**I received this book in exchange for an honest review as a part of Fiction Addiction Book Tours.
