Cobweb Bride, By Vera Nazarian
This is the first of the Cobweb Bride Trilogy, by Vera Nazarian, published by Norilana Books. The book gets off to a slow start, I found I wasn't absorbed until over 100 pages in. On at least one occasion I found myself thinking I was reading something better suited to the screen than a novel - there wasn't enough meat to characters' thoughts. More depth would have helped.
Once closer to the climax of this story, things took off, and I felt like characters had depth, and individual meaning.
Very interesting concept, uneven execution. I will read the next in the trilogy, definitely - I do want to know what happens next.
