This is a banger of a Persephone Hades retelling. It’s well written, the banter is top tier, the characters all have chemistry, the world is well built but still loose, and I’m in love with Persephone and Hades. But it did take me longer to get into than I would’ve liked and the climax of the story and ending felt fast. I love love love the way Katee Robert writes about consent and pleasure and the spice in this book is not what I was expecting in a very good way. I also loved the epilogue and I’m not usually an epilogue girlie. The mythology was rewritten in a way that makes sense and I love the different ways Robert included aspects and people from the original myths. Super solid 4 stars, would recommend.

While I loved that all the characters were urban versions of the original Olympian gods/goddesses, this book's premise led me to believe there'd be more of that magic side of the gods. But there was almost none. It read more like a regular contemporary fantasy filled with rich folks, just set in a weird Olympus world where things are mysterious & unexplained. I think the most "magical" it got was the mention of Hera...and how it is more of a title than anything.
