A super horny reimagining of the Hades and Persephone story. If you’re here for the spice, read on. If you’re here for flawless storytelling, I’m not sure that this is for you.

This book is HOT! The smut is top tier, and the romance is so cute. AND their relationship is healthy (built on respect & trust af). Also the mythology is pretty accurate for a smut retelling.

I love love love Hades!! The other characters are wonderful as well. My only issue with this book is the world building. It was rather shocking to see Greek gods have access to modern day technology and know about modern day places in America. I’d have preferred if the author had kept them in Ancient Greece or brought them fully to the modern day.

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.

This book was SO MUCH FUN!! Like the blurb on the cover says, its sex scenes are "unspeakably hot", with Hades being a loving, caring dom and Persephone a bratty sub (which is exactly how I would imagine them, and it's to die for). But apart from that, the book is also incredibly clever and suspenseful. The original myth is modernised in a way that you never see coming, but that's so smart and made me yell in excitement. 

I will definitely be reading more from this author, if only because I need to know more about this divine world. (And because the smut is just so good.)

10% fantasy, 90% smut. I just…. I just need a little more story, man. It’s so, so close to being interesting. But hey, if you’re looking for gloriously gratuitous smut then boy do i have the book for you
