I don’t know what I was expecting with this book but it wasn’t this. I think that the relationship and the characters could have been a little more developed and the internal struggle and change a bit more there.

i’m gonna break it down to the basics:

  • the smut was fast build-up and then irrelevant plateauing. tiktok and instagram over exaggerated the smut and honestly i’d give it like a 3 on the spice scale (and that’s probably being generous)
  • as a hades/persephone retelling i was immensely let down. the story was a retelling in the barest sense, meaning robert took their names and city and slapped it into some characters. 
  • BUT, as a book in general it wasn’t bad, and it was easy to get distracted into it 
  • the lines and sayings and similes/metaphors were repetitive and it felt like it was just the same 4 paragraphs a lot of the time
  • hades was really sweet in this and he wasted no time falling in love with persephone
  • again, for a book that’s like “renowned” for its smut, it was a let down.  
  • there was just an abundance of inner monologuing

the writing wasn’t my thing as it made certain parts of the book hard to take seriously, but the romance between hades & persephone was endearing enough for me to enjoy the overall story; i also liked seeing how other relationships such as the one persephone shares with her family came into play, so that redeemed the book in my eyes.
