A good modern-day retelling of the Greek myth that ran a bit too long. The book could have used a good edit. Every chapter felt repetitive, and said the same things two to three times. While it showed good negotiations and consent, the characters felt a bit empty/static, and the ending underwhelming and a bit convoluted.

EDIT: i’m changing my rating to a two because i think i was trying to convince myself this wasn’t dumb as fuck but the more i think about the plot i’m like jfc what was this even???

i’d probably call this a 3.5! there’s some unexplained world and magic stuff (huh???? california and ohio exist???? what is this and why can hermes mimic voices), and the middle section was a slog, but the third act was fast paced, fun, and dramatic :) overall a pretty good time. i challenge all >21 readers of this book to take a shot every time hades picks persephone up — oh, wait, that would kill you! please don’t!

I loved Hades and Persephone but wanted a little bit more to the story.

Persephone crosses the River Styx in an attempt to escape Zeus; in doing so she runs right into the arms of Hades. As a “myth” to many Hades creates a safe haven for Persephone, at one expense: sex. Essentially all this book is, is sex. Public sex, rough sex, etc. Persephone’s sister eventually crosses the river as well after being chased. Hades breaks the treaty and crosses the river to kill Zeus. After Zeus’s death, hades and Persephone live happily ever after.

This book was okay, but there really wasn’t much story line in my opinion; just hot and heavy sex scenes.
