3.0 out of 5 stars Leaves you feeling very philisophical about life 30 November 2015
By Keroberus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When you read these three books, you must be open minded. Drop everything you ever knew about the Persephone/Hades myth and set it aside. Leave everything you know about Europe with knights and shining armor, nations and even real world geography behind. Nazarian takes you on a very emotional, very wild ride that will rip through your imagination and leave you stunned on the other side. For better or worse, I felt as though I was glad to take this often perplexing journey with extremely deep metaphysical undertones. It read like epic fairy tales spun by William Joyce, and creation myths reminiscent of C.S. Lewis.

Once I got past my own self restraints I allowed myself to be open to the fact that this journey of Percy, the destined savior of her world, was worth taking. Percy's self-deprecating view of herself makes you cringe sometimes. It is annoying that she never appreciates herself and can only press forward her need to save/protect/love others. She is, especially at the ending, a disappointing "everyman" in her ordinary-ness. But that is precisely her charm. She is not special. She is only human. She is none of us and all of us at the same time. Ordinary, compassionate, willful, and clever; where every choice she makes in the story propels her towards an inevitable end. Then you are confronted with the paradox of free choice in a world of inevitability and get a headache.

The romance in the story made me blush and made me cry, and it was worth following the stories of the Infanta, Percy, the goddess Persephone, Hades/Death. There is no sex in any of the books, but the love between mortals and that of immortals was lovely and each unique in their own way. True love is a real, tangible thing in Nazarian's universe, and for me it left a warm and fuzzy feeling. I read all three novels over one weekend because I simply had to know what became of true love.

My holding back a glowing review comes from one point: Everything is so complicated. Too many things, too many people--too much of everything going on at the same time; and an oft too complex plot that weaves into a very great tapestry. You get lost in the details and I think the author does too in her exposition of trying to force the threads into the story that is too big, too wide at times, for the reader to even comprehend. I found myself reading and rereading passages to make sure I understood the meaning and complexity of what was being told.

Make no mistake, Nazarian is an excellent storyteller. But in the Cobweb series she is extremely ambitious. Magic, queens, dukes, ladies-in-waiting, immortal gods, princesses, elementals, Death, zombies, kings, marquises, emperors, war -- all collide, combust, and break apart and are consumed around our little heroine who is just trying to stay alive long enough to complete the tasks Death asks of her.

The heroine and her true love don't really come out of it the same, suffice to say, and the villains don't really get their comeuppance. In the grand scheme of things, karma is perhaps the best way to describe the end theme. No one gets what they want, but everyone gets what they deserve. Then the world moves on as if the events of story never happened, and the author tells us that everything and everyone is where they should be.

The Cobweb Bride was just a red herring. Not all the gods got involved for some reason. The One God is just a divine watchmaker. Only human choice can change the world. Once I accepted these points, I could finally enjoy the story, but alas I was at the end. I was neither disappointed nor content, but something left an unfulfilled feeling. I was simply at the end. Now I return to my dreary mortal coil.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and Unique Story 3 September 2016
By Amy F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Normally I don't like books that switch between different character points of view, but this series is very fast paced and a lot happens to each character during the journey so I didn't really have time to get bored with the character whose 'turn' it was to speak before we were on to someone else. I ended up really enjoying this series, and bought the second and third books halfway through the first one. I knew early on I was going to need them.

It was so fast paced that sometimes it felt a little rushed. It is difficult to really point out a specific example of why I think this, but one thing that sticks out in my mind is Vlad's brother. I felt like (and expected) MUCH more drama should have come out of that situation and I found myself waiting for the meeting. Well, it was wrapped up nicely anyway and it worked in the context of the story so I guess I shouldn't be complaining. I just think it was a bit of wasted opportunity. There are also a few tiny errors here and there that would shock me out of the story for a moment (mainly misspelled words), but it is such an interesting story I started right back reading again.

If you enjoy fantasy, historical fiction, or even romance you should definitely give these books a try because they are a thoughtful blend of these three genres. They are affordable and for the price a very good deal. Give it a try, I doubt you will be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars She has me as a fan for Life 16 July 2014
By Amazon shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Just finished all three and the characters and the story are still in my head. Vera Nazarian writes as though she is from the world where fantasies are born. She reminds me of Patricia A. McKillip whose writings to me are "enchanting". This story is none of the same old same old "Wizards and Warriors and Damsels in distress stuff. This is a unique world (set in the middle of our own), a unique story, and a beautiful way of telling the tale. I am now off to discover more from this author. I heard "Lord of Rainbow" and "Dreams of the Compass Rose" are excellent as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars best of the trilogy! 19 July 2014
By LucMee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Fine! Fine writing! The entry is by far the best of the three. No tedious backstory review or setup to wade through... Just a headlong plunge into a very meaty story that gains momentum relentlessly. Once again, the characters are well fleshed and live quite easily in the imagination. The story takes unexpected twists in just the right places and add emotion to the story. There are lovely little Bon mots of philosophical innuendo sprinkled throughout that caused this reader to make use of the highlight and note functions far more that expected. This is a trilogy that is highly recommended and I look forward to reading more of this authors work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Written 24 January 2014
By Bluefig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've just finished this last book in the Cobweb Bride Trilogy and wow! I very much enjoyed this story, it was very unique and so beautifully written. The trilogy isn't without it's flaws, and in a less engaging story I would have stopped reading in book one. The writing is so sublime but then an awkward or incorrect (by this I mean inappropriate in the context of the scene) word choice will pull me out of the story...but since I'm eager to know what happens next I keep reading. That is a testimony to how very talented this author is, that in spite of the little flaws (which could be fixed with a good editor) I couldn't stop reading. I'm very glad that the author stopped telling us every time a character had to "answer nature's call" (In Book one of the trilogy the reader was kept aware of how often the characters had to pee! lol)
Gorgeous descriptions, intriguing characters and a compelling plot made this trilogy the most enjoyable one I've read in years, and the first one I've been invested enough in to finish in quite some time. Now I'm off to see what else this author has written!
