A review by nenaveenstra
Neon Gods, by Katee Robert

adventurous dark funny lighthearted fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


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.)
