Read from March 22 to 25, 2013

This is one of those books you wish you could give more then one grade...
For the first 60% i would give maybe 3 stars ,maybe even less as i was quite annoyed with how slow everything develops,there was not even a hint of love and i almost thought this leads no where.
O yes there was a lot of blood ,severed limps,people horribly mutilated [and yet unable to die> .That's ok if you was picking this book because you like to read the horror genre..but if not,then you will be annoyed like me..where is the love damn it??

So if you expecting some kind of a romantic retelling of the Persephone myth ,know that you are not going to find any of it in the long prelude..(the first 60% that i mentioned).

But then,everything suddenly speeds up and things start unraveling gorgeous !
After you cross a bit more then half of the book ,you will not be able to put it down!

And finally,there is love,and action,and more intrigue and kindness and sweetness,and heroes ..all that i was waiting for:)

For this part i would give the book 5 stars!

And then again there is the ending-no closure at all!...It almost shows i was right when i said that this is leading no where...So all in all,the whole book nr.1 feels more like a long prologue then an actually first sequel of the announced (of course)trilogy.

And you can describe everything that happens in the story just in few sentences...Death is asking humans to find his missing bride,until they do there will be no more relief by death.Many girls make there self on the way to find Deaths Keep and offer them self as his bride,between them Persephone - our main character.It is a hard trip ,through the woods in the cold,freezing winter weather and not only the weather is hindering the girls to reach there goal but a dark knight as well.He works for his undead father who doesn't wish for his sudden immortality to end and thus tries to stop the girls to reach Deaths Keep.But when they finally menage to offer them self to Death,the unexpected happens...

I am definitely going to read the sequel when ever it comes out..as the story was intriguing enough to make me curious what will happen next .I just hope everything will be happening a bit faster.
I do recommend this book,but maybe it is better to wait for all the sequels to come out..
