Publisher's Summary

Persephone and Hades are engaged. In retaliation, Demeter summons a snowstorm that cripples New Greece and refuses to lift the blizzard unless her daughter calls off her engagement.

When the Olympians intervene, Persephone finds her future in the hands of ancient gods, and they are divided. Do they allow Persephone to marry Hades and go to war with Demeter or prohibit their union and take up arms against the God of the Dead?

Nothing is certain but the promise of war.

Contains mature themes.

Keeps getting better!

Exciting and morish! I tried to pace myself, knowing that I'll have to wait for the next book but I just couldn't stop listening! The world building and character development has me thinking of this series long after I've put it down. And that cliffhanger - I am on the edge of my seat with anxious anticipation!!

Slightly repetitive

This book is a bit repetitive. It could use a bit more plot, as well.

Loved it!

this is by far one of my favorite retellings of the Hades x Persephone myth, however I really wish there wasn't a sex scene EVERY chapter. We get it, alright?
Other than that, can't wait for the next one.

Great Book....but

The audiobook was performed great and I loved the story of Hades and Prostephone. The only complaint is that the audiobook and book do not match. The audio book leaves out words, sentences, and even paragraphs that in the book. It happens with all three books. Nevertheless, I will get the next book when it comes out.

It's good, but annoying in some ways.

⚠️ SPOILERS AHEAD ⚠️

I LOVE LOVE love the story itself, but the sex scenes are so frequent and alike that I was more annoyed than anything with them. I've been skipping past them since the first book. It's like when you go to season your food and accidentally dump a pile of seasoning on..yeah thats what it's like with sex scenes in this series. For example she's shot in a mass shooting at the games and hades teleports her to the underworld to heal her.. he's washing the blood off her wound and she's recalling seeing hundreds die from the shooting and bombings that took place at the games... then boom.. 0.3 seconds later theyre having sex like nothing happened.. it was like a TV show. You get 5 min of show and 20 min of commercials only the commercials are sex scenes and they're SO cringy.

The narration is amazing and she really does a fantastic job bringing the characters to life.

The end had me irritated at how rushed it was...but other than that the actual story was fantastic and had me laughing, crying and seething by the end.

Definitely worth the read and will definitely be reading the next book!

love it..... although.....

I love this story and the character development. only thing I dont enjoy is there are a few phrases that are really repetitive. persephone "shivers" at everything. I also wish hades could ask more than just "are you well?". other than those minor things, I love love love these books. I hope another book comes out from hades POV.

Incredible story

The story continues so well but there is just an excessive about of smut mixed in that is just boring and repetitive.
The story line itself is great but I really hope the next one dials back the boring sex scenes.

Amazing - can’t wait for the next book

This book made me so happy, if I could rate it higher I would. The relationship between the main characters became healthier in this book, and both character growth and plot were written excellently.

Narrator is also very talented and brought to life the story and individual characters. I appreciated the softness she brought to Persephone.
