Description

In a world where no one can die, she alone can kill... COBWEB EMPIRE (Cobweb Bride Trilogy, Book Two) is the second book of the intricate epic fantasy flavored by Renaissance history and the romantic myth of Persephone, about death's ultimatum to the world. Now that she's Death's Champion, what will Percy do? In a world where all death and dying has ceased, and only one person can kill, everyone can only expect a miracle. But what if it's just the tip of the iceberg? Percy Ayren must make her way south, despite all odds, to the place where the death shadow of the Cobweb Bride calls her. With the help of her companions and the invincible black knight, Lord Beltain Chidair whose enigmatic presence disturbs her in a way she cannot explain, Percy must continue her quest, while the mortal world falls apart around them.... Meanwhile, the Marquis Vlau Fiomarre faces the truth of his impossible feelings for Claere Liguon, the Emperor's daughter. He had cruelly taken her life, and now he must serve her until his last dying breath -- it is no longer a matter of honor but secret passion. And now, the world itself is changing.... A new dark witch rises, and she will make your heart freeze with her beauty and power.... Empires clash, kings and emperors and gods vie for supremacy, the living and the dead are at war, while love stories play out in amazing directions, and new mind-blowing mysteries are born. Experience the stunning continuation of the epic story in Cobweb Empire.show more

Our customer reviews

Imagine a world where no one is dying. Yay that's a great idea - you would say at first.But think about it.It's not just that you would become immortal or that your loved ones would never have to depart from you.Think about the sick, think about the old people already on there dying bed... They wouldn't just jump up, become healed,healthy and young again. No,they would be sentenced to endless suffering with no sleep or rest.Nothing can die.Not the old,dying grandma,not the assassinated beautiful princess,not the little child who fell and hurt it self, not even the pig who was on the slaughter table at the moment when death stopped.Still thinking this is a good idea for a world to be? I think not.But it is how it is.Mr.Death him self decided it is time for him to have a bride,but he cant find her.He doesn't now how she looks like nor where she is but he can feel her somewhere in the world.So he decides to stop doing his job until the bride comes to him. This is the story that we learn of in the first installment of the Cobweb Bride Trilogy. In this second sequel we will have the honor to join the journey of Persephone through the land at war against the dead armies,on her way to find the Cobweb Bride. If i would write any more of it it would have to much spoilers so i'll just say that you can expect to engage a handsome,dark knight;a cute and clever peasant girl by the name of Persephone,some spoiled aristocrats;a funny, heartwarming, middle-aged witch;a clever mare;a noble death princess,an assassin in love and regret,and a lot more beautiful and deeply developed characters that will grow to you and become your best friends and foes. A worthy sequel if not even better as the first part! Such beautiful and poetic writing... The story starts a bit slow at the beginning but takes a nice turn later on with more romance and action. Some really clever parts like the nature of the Lethe river and the final chapter revelation, where i almost thought-OK this is the end, nice and happy-turned to be a huge surprise and smart cliffhanger. They made me smile and happily think of future hours spend reading the promised third part... hopefully sooner rather then later. Thumbs up dear Vera, for this beautiful sequel and thank you for sending me the book when i asked for it.I am very much recommending this serial and i can't wait to lay my eyes on the third book:)show more
