The world is broken… A dark Goddess rises. A mortal maiden must stop her.
COBWEB FOREST (Cobweb Bride Trilogy, Book Three) is the third and final book of the intricate epic fantasy flavored by Renaissance history and the romantic myth of Persephone, about death’s ultimatum to the world.
My Short, Spoiler-Free Review:
I really enjoyed this series. Our heroine, Percy Ayren, faces a seemingly insurmountable task, one that no earthly being has ever encountered. The final installment focuses more on the gods, their place in the universe and how their actions affect human life. We finally learn why the world is shrinking and what needs to be done to make things right.
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 well-developed characters. The story is beautifully written, action-packed and original. I found myself caring deeply for Percy and Beltain. I was also shocked by the pain and anguish suffered by Hades… yes, HADES!
(Side Note: I hope there will be a Percy/Beltain follow-up. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.)
In my opinion, Cobweb Forest could be a standalone novel, as it details what occurs in the other books. However, I do recommend reading the entire series. You’ll be glad you did!
5/5 Stars! Kudos to Vera Nazarian for this series!
