I’ve been desperately waiting for this book ever since Eurydice and Charon showed up at the house party in Radiant Sin, and it did not disappoint!! No criticisms, no complaints, these three are perfect and I adore them!!! 💜🖤💙

And to say the plot thickens would be an understatement… this book had me STRESSED. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I can’t even begin to imagine the state of everything by the time the series is over, and that terrifies me.

I’m so glad Hades said ENOUGH and closed off the lower city. I can’t have anything happening to him, Persephone or their lil babies. BUT WHY didn’t y’all bring in a few more people first?? I get that Callisto couldn’t have come, and Demeter probably wouldn’t have, but what about Psyche and Eros?? Or Apollo and Cassandra, for Orpheus’s sake?? THEY NEED TO BE SAFE TOO.

And speaking of, I don’t know what Callisto is up to, but I don’t like it. My current theory is that she’s helping Circe and Minos somehow?? My first thought was maybe she was the benefactor, but now I’m just wondering if she’s willing to be an agent from the inside. She would be all too happy to watch Olympus burn, and if she agreed to help, she could probably negotiate safety for her family…
