Cobweb Bride Many are called...

She alone can save the world and become Death's bride.

COBWEB BRIDE (Cobweb Bride Trilogy, Book One) is a history-flavored fantasy novel with romantic elements of the Persephone myth, about Death's ultimatum to the world.

What if you killed someone and then fell in love with them?

In an alternate Renaissance world, somewhere in an imaginary "pocket" of Europe called the Kingdom of Lethe, Death comes, in the form of a grim Spaniard, to claim his Bride. Until she is found, in a single time-stopping moment all dying stops. There is no relief for the mortally wounded and the terminally ill....

Covered in white cobwebs of a thousand snow spiders she lies in the darkness... Her skin is cold as snow... Her eyes frozen... Her gaze, fiercely alive...

While kings and emperors send expeditions to search for a suitable Bride for Death, armies of the undead wage an endless war... A black knight roams the forest at the command of his undead father… Spies and political treacheries abound at the imperial Silver Court.... Murdered lovers find themselves locked in the realm of the living...

Look closer — through the cobweb filaments of her hair and along each strand shine stars...

And one small village girl, Percy—an unwanted, ungainly middle daughter—is faced with the responsibility of granting her dying grandmother the desperate release she needs.

As a result, Percy joins the crowds of other young women of the land in a desperate quest to Death's own mysterious holding in the deepest forests of the North…

And everyone is trying to stop her.

    A absolutely brilliant,thought provoking book, with wonderfully complex characters. I was hooked from the first few pages, and I can't wait to see what happens next..

    By The Fairy with the crooked tooth
    Set in Renaissance Europe in an insular Kingdom (a country mostly unseen by the rest of the world) the author spins a timeless tale of various parties all affected by Death's desperate attempt to find his Cobweb Bride. Death himself gives an ultimatum that until he's given his bride, there will be no death (in the country). The author weaves beautiful prose, great dialogue, quirky characters to create a beautiful long twisting tale (I kept thinking I knew what was going to happen - and I was wrong - good writing!). This is the literary equivalent of a room full of wall sized tapestries that weave a complicated tale with hidden meanings and symbols. You can read it on the surface as a lovely story, but there's an unspoken story being told in the background...if you look through the mist you might see it! Even though I felt poorly (and I knew I had to be up early in the morning) I couldn't put it down. I read all night! Thankfully, it turned out I didn't have to go out so I went back to bed. My only negative about the story was I didn't realise this was a first part of a series so I kept thinking, 'How are they going to resolve XYZ in so many pages?' I now have to read the other two books to find out what happens. Trigger Warnings for people who suffer PTSD: Blood, Assault, knives, murder, kidnapping, parental rejection
