Not quite a fairy-tale retelling itself, Keturah and Lord Death remain unfinished by the end of the night, so that Lord Death will spare her life for Aptly titled, the book is primarily about Keturah and her relationship with death.

Lord Death's Paramour is a fanfiction author that has written 6 stories for Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and the -Keturah and Lord Death, Martine Leavitt.
So I pretty much love this book incoherently I kept making noises out loud and annoying Loverbut I'll try to break it down. Also, full of little presents to the careful reader like repeated instances of three, barely stated character development, and clever plot twists.
Keturah is brave, loyal, and independent. She's also afraid, idealistic, and longing for true love, a house to put him in, and a baby. I have to say that after reading a ton of novels where feminist strength is portrayed as not wanting to get married, not wanting kids, not wanting true love -- it was refreshing. I think it's too easy to default to Katniss as a "strong female character.

- Keturah and Lord Death, Martine Leavitt
Her rejection of love is not strength. I love a strong character where the girl is operating perfectly fine without a man, but she's also willing to be open to love. And there's a lot of love of many different sorts in this book. My friend who recommended this book to me said that she almost afraid that the ending would ruin it, but that it came around. As I wasn't exactly sure what ending my friend would like, I didn't have any clue what that meant, even as I was reading it.

Late Nights with Good Books: Review: Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt
Like n nidofito Sep 30, I love having Death as a character. I love the whole conflict with loving a supposedly evil character that causes deaths of people.Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt
And although the story was neither as dark as I had hoped nor the scenes with Keturah and Lord Death as lengthy as I wanted, their conversations were really enjoyable to read. The setting has a timeless feel to it, nothing too modern and appropriate for a high fantasy, so the story seems like something written a long time ago despite its recent publication. I didn't want to put it down. The author has a natural storytelling flair, and uses it through her character, Keturah, who is also a storyteller.
The ending wasn't a total surprise, but it was good.
Keturah and Lord Death
I recommend it for teenagers and adults. It's a quick read and it's like a fairytale. Like robe Oct 17, Combination of fairytale charm and some life themes. Not too captivating but still a nice little read. Like a aboyter Dec 18, This is such a lovely book. It is short and to the point but reveals how ingrained death is in our lives.
