This book was basically just a boring, tame mafia AU retelling where the author knew the bare bones of the original myths and nothing more. It wasn't as sexy as I thought it would be, which is embarrassingly disappointing.
Spoiler The whole thing with Zeus' death felt way too rushed and empty, just like the rest of the book.
 Neon Gods totally suffers from "telling, not showing" (and when it is shown, it's different from how it was told). I absolutely do not believe Persephone when she says Olympus is full of poison because it's never actually shown????? Also, the fact that "fuck" was one of the only curse words outside the sex scenes (like, one per page) is hilarious to me. Sure, it's a quick read, but it was so devoid of anything that it was a waste.

I much prefer this version of Hades and Persephone over the version in A Touch of Darkness. Unique world building, compelling plot, interesting characters, and excellent spice. I only wish there'd been a little more exposition to really establish the villain as scary and threatening. Looking forward to reading the second one!

Amazing book, I love Katee Robert’s books. Can’t wait to read the rest of the series. I loved Persephone and Hades relationship and how we all hate Zeus. Such a cute relationship but full of spice dang 🥵. Have fun reading

I love the development of Hades and Persephone’s relationship in this book. I also really enjoyed the world building. I was worried this would be too much like the Touch of Darkness series but it’s not. The spice is delectable. 🥵
